Care & Cleaning

Drying Time

It will take about 3 to 5 days for your new window film to fully dry. DO NOT roll your tinted windows down until they are dry, otherwise the film could peel.

  • Film can dry in a few hours in the summer and up to a few months in the winter
  • During this time the window will appear hazy and you will notice small water pockets caused by excess moisture trapped between the glass and the film forming a 'blister'
  • Do not squeegee, prod, or poke these water blisters, they will disappear once all the water has evaporated
  • Do not clean the film for 30 days after installation

Bubbles in Window TintExample: HP Quantum film a few days after installation. Click to enlarge the photo, you'll notice numerous water bubbles in the tint. These are normal and will eventually evaporate.



  • Use a soft cloth or regular paper towel (not the brown, scratchy stuff) and soapy water.
  • Do not use ammonia based products such as windex, unless they are specially designed for aftermarket tint.  Over time, the ammonia could react to the chemicals used in the film and cause blotchiness - yes, we have actually seen this happen. Stick to soap and water!
  • You can also try a spray foam glass cleaner. We recommend "Bon-ami" to our customers, available at Canadian Tire and leading grocery or department stores.


Scratch Resistant Coating & Seat belt Chips

Although all of our films are manufactured with a "durable scratch-resistant" coating, this does not mean the film is scratch-proof. Window film is just paper. Be careful when loading sharp metal objects or boxes into your car, installing baby seats, while removing your seatbelt, with watches and jewelry, it is very easy to make small nicks in the tint.
