Frequently Asked Questions

Automotive window tint- Aftercare

Do not roll down your windows for at least 2 days

Although newly tinted windows provide immediate benefits, the glue that adheres the film to the glass does not cure instantly. Film requires sunlight to promote curing. Depending on the amount of sun exposure, it can take from two to four days for the tint to set. If you roll your windows down before that time, the tint may peel.

Observing A Haze Or Water Bubbles


With freshly tinted windows there can be a haze on the film and possibly small water pockets forming beneath the film. This is normal. Window film is porous, and the water normally evaporates on its own. If its not gone in four days, give us a call and we will make it right. Do not attempt to fix it yourself.

Wait a few days before cleaning your windows

Wait a few days before going to the car wash because the tinted film needs time to cure. When cleaning, a light wipe with a microfiber cloth or soft paper towel should suffice, as the tint is applied on the inside of the window rather than the exterior. represent a severe threat.

If you do want to clean the inside of your windows, we recommend a soft, non-abrasive cloth or paper towel and any cleaner without ammonia. There are even cleaners designed expressly for tinted windows on the market, but a simple solution of soap and water or vinegar and water will suffice. Just remember, NO AMMONIA as it will damage your tint.

Tint is scratch-resistant not scratch-proof

The scratch-resistant coating on our high-quality tint products is ideal for protecting your car windows from everyday wear and tear.  However, keep in mind that scratch-resistant does not imply scratch-proof. Sharp objects or hard edges can scratch or nick the film.  The major cause of issues is seatbelts.  With the automatic recoil the buckle can hit the window and nick or scratch the film.  Take care when releasing your seatbelts.
