Care of New Window Film

Drying Time:

Your new window film will take about 7 to 10 days to fully dry, sometimes a lot longer depending on the film, type, and weather conditions. While film is drying, it is highly recommended that you park in the sun to evaporate the moisture between the film and the glass to cure the glue. Until this time your tinted windows may appear hazy or lumpy, and it may seem to have water bubbles. This is common occurrence with all installs and high performance films.


After the film is dry, you may clean your window film with any “tint-safe” (NON-AMMONIA) glass cleaner. You can use a soft paper towel but we recommend a microfiber towel.
Once the film is installed, do not wipe or clean inside windows for 7 days.

Black Dotted Edges

Most cars have a black ceramic ‘Frit; edge on the rear window. Sometimes this ceramic edge is straight and flat, sometimes it will have a dotted edge. These black ceramic dots are quite thick on most cars and prevent the window film from sticking to the area between the dots .This results in a whitish looking strip trimming the glass. Typically this isn’t very noticeable however some cars have a wide band of dots trimming the top in the rear window. This area is so wide that the whitish looking area created is more pronounced. Unfortunately, the effects are unavoidable.

Seat Belt Chips

Caution should be used when releasing seat belts. Small chips can be made in the window film due to the seat belt hitting the glass as it is released, THIS IS NOT COVERED BY WARRANTY.


Though we strive for perfection in our installations, due to the nature of the product, some degree of dust contamination and or minor imperfections are present in every window film application, also pre-existing flaws or scratches and metal deposits on the glass are often much more noticeable after the windows are tinted.

Nighttime Defogger Distortion

At night you may notice that the light from headlights will reflect off of the defogger lines. This is caused by the film having to bend slightly around the defogger line, varies from car to car, and there is nothing that can be done about it.
