Window Film Care and Maintenance

At Xlnt Tint we are committed to protecting you and your loved ones from the harmful elements of the sun. And in doing so we would like to point out some care and maintenance instructions for your window film.

To obtain the maximum life from your new window film the following instructions should be followed:

  • Cleaning
    Please do not clean your window for approximately 30 days after the installation. This will help secure the proper curing of the special mounting adhesive to the glass. There are no restrictions on what type of window cleaner you may use. Any solution acceptable including ammonia, vinegar, and alcohol.
  • Cleaning Solutions
    Most glass cleaners will work well although a good economical cleaning solution for window film is ½ ounce of liquid dish soap added to 1 quart of fresh water. We also recommend Spray Way and Invisible Glass which can be purchased at any location.
  • Cleaning Materials
    Always use fresh clean soft materials to wash and dry you window film surfaces. A soft cloth or a clean synthetic sponge is recommended for washing the window film followed by a another clean soft cloth or soft rubber squeegee for drying. To avoid scratching the film do: do not use bristle brushes, abrasive scrubbing sponges, or any cleaning materials that may have been contaminated with dirt particles as is commonly the case when washing the interior and exterior windows with the same cleaning materials. Some brands of paper towels are coarse enough to put fine scratches in the film, even our films with a protective hard coat finish. While these scratches may be too thin to be seen at the beginning, they can damage the polished look of the film over time.
  • Automotive Clients
    Please do not roll down any windows that have been filmed for at least 48 hours. If your vehicle was done in a cold or inclement weather please add 24 hours.
  • Attachment Clients (Non Wet Glaze)
    Please use the same care as the window film.
  • Attachment Clients (Wet Glaze)
    Please do not touch or clean your wet glaze attachment for at least 30 days. This will allow proper curing and complete bonding throughout the bead. To clean the wet glaze please use the same care as the window film.
