How Long Will Window Tint Take to Cure?

With any window tint installation, allowing time for your new film to adhere to the surface is very important. It is normal for a small amount of fluid to remain underneath the film after a proper installation. This trapped liquid is not harmful and your tint is curing as it should. The liquid will evaporate and may leave small bubbles or a hazy appearance. These bubbles and cloudy appearance will disappear.

When? The thinner the film, the faster the drying time. Most films will cure as quickly as one or two weeks after installation. Thicker films like our Security Film can take as much as 30 to 60 days. The temperature and weather conditions may lengthen the curing time in cold and cloudy weather. With enough time, the film will cure to its optimum clarity.

Can I Clean my New Window Tint?

Let the window tint dry for 30 days before attempting to  clean it. Like with any window, you will eventually want to clean it. We recommend waiting at least 30 days after installation before cleaning your windows.

Never use ammonia products on window film. Ammonia is harsh on film. This chemical breaks down the adhesive that bonds the film to your windows. In fact, we use ammonia to remove any old film on windows! We recommend a few drops of liquid dish soap in some water for window cleaning.

Use clean, soft materials to wash and dry your windows. Avoid abrasive sponges or bristle brushes on your windows. We recommend microfiber cloths!
