How long does it take to install film on my car?
It all depends on the number of windows that need tint as well as the type of car. Expect to leave your car with us approximately 3 hours.
How is automotive window film applied?
Window film is always applied to the inside of the automotive glass. Installers simply use the outside of the window to cut & heat shrink the window film for a proper fit. As professional installers, we completely clean and prep the glass prior to installation. Using a special mounting solution, squeegee and stainless cutting blades, we prepare, fit and secure the film to the glass.
How much heat will be reduced by the window film?
Heat rejection properties vary from one product to another. Some films can reject as much as 78 percent of total solar energy.
What About Warranties?
every brand of film we offer including our ceramic film comes with a lifetime warranty.
What Is Meant By "Curing" And How Long Does It Take?
All window film installers use a special "slip" solution during installation. It is normal for some of this solution to become trapped between the glass and the film, requiring small water based bubbles time to dry. The curing or dry-out time is necessary for window film adhesive to properly bond to the glass. How long it takes depends on factors such as the film type and climate during and after installation completion.
What Do I Need To Know About Maintenance?
After the dry-out process is complete your window film should not need any special care. Cleaning window film can be done safely with mild soapy water and a soft cloth or soft paper towel. Do not use any rough or abrasive materials for cleaning the film side of the glass. Always use cloths that are free of contamination or dirt particles.

How reflective can the tint be?
Similar to sunglass lenses, some tinting film contain metallic elements that help in reflecting incoming light and reducing the glare and heat generated by visible light.
