Why does my tint job have watery looking ripples in it?
Method 1: When there’s a defect that looks like uniform ripples, almost like if a stone lands in water, this is usually because of failed film or adhesive. This can happen quickly or over time. Lower quality film will begin to melt and fail if it sits in the sun for months or years on end, causing water-like ripples. It can also happen fairly quickly after your tint job if there’s an adhesive or film failure. There is nothing you can do to fix it other than remove and replace it.
