We recommend that you allow 48 hours before opening windows. This is to allow the film to dry and gives the adhesive time to cure.
The time to tint a car varies on the size and model of the vehicle. Generally a sedan such as a Holden Commodore would take roughly 1 to 1.5 hours to complete.
The darkest legal limit in Victoria permitted for window tinting is a 35% visible light transmitting film. A darker film is permitted on the rear section of a van and the rear screen only on a Ute.
It takes several days for the film to completely adhere to the window. There still may be water under the film even three days after tinting. This causes a hazy look until the water completely evaporates. When the water evaporates, your windows should look completely clear with excellent clarity.
It is always best to have a professional remove your old film before getting your car re-tinted.
We recommend a non-ammonia cleaner and a soft cloth, such as a terry cloth. A few drops of regular dishwashing soap, in a regualr spray bottle works best.
