Friday I did some Commercial Window Tinting in north Phoenix.
As I was cleaning this glass for the commercial window tint application I noticed an unusually rough surface on the glass . I have seen this before in my experience’s and I think I may have figured out why in some situations I see this type of damaged glass. If the rough material is not removed from the glass the glass will show pitting and what looks like dirt behind the film. In all cases we use stainless steel razor blades to try to remove this debris, but unfortunately this can cause the blade to scratch the glass. One of those situations that is dammed if you do and dammed if you don’t. In my research today I found an article that explain how glass should be protected when after installed on a job site under construction. I believe the welding of the store front frame caused small particles of welding material to embed themselves in the glass and when a blade comes in contact with the specs of weld embedded in the glass the blade dulls and scratches the glass. The glass was not properly protected before the welding occurred. Saturday was a slow day , and today I applied auto window tint to a Dodge Durango. This was a return customer who had his Cadillac tinted he a couple of days ago. Tomorrow I will do some more commercial window tinting in north phoenix on the side of a building to help reduce heat coming into the room.
