2. How long before I can use my windows?

Allow film to cure for 3 to 5 days before lowering windows. Your new film takes between 1 and 2 weeks to fully cure. Please note that window film will take a lot longer to dry out and cure in winter than opposed to the summer months.

3. Why on some windows do you get a silver line around the edge?

On some windows, mainly non-winding, there are black dots around the edge of the glass. This is called the dot matrix and is produced using a Teflon type material, which is factory fitted. When the film is applied it sticks to the dot matrix and not the glass, which traps air and water between the dots giving it the silver look. With some windows it can’t be helped whereas others will evaporate and look fine. It all depends on the thickness of the dot matrix, which will vary depending on the make and model of the car.

4. Do you offer a guarantee with your work?
