How Long Does It Take For Window Tint To Cure

Because we’re experts in the window tint industry, we get a lot of questions about how window tinting works. The most common question is how about the length of time needed for newly-applied window tint to cure. If you have questions about window tinting, just give us a call, send us an email, or drop in. We’ll be happy to see you, and try to answer all of your questions.

The amount of time needed for window tint to cure will vary depending on what type of film is used, as well as the temperatures the car is exposed to. With our standard window films, we have noticed that our curing periods will range from 2 weeks to 30 days. If the car is parked outside in the direct sun, curing times will be greatly reduced. Because the sunlight is less intense and the temperatures lower, cars tinted during the winter months will take longer to cure. The hotter the temperature is the faster the tint will cure, the colder the temperature the longer the cure time will be.

When Huper Optiks window film is applied, the high amount of heat rejection will work against the curing process. Window tint needs heat to cure. Because the heat rejection aspect of Huper Optiks window tints is so awesome, it slows down the curing time and can take up to 3 months to fully cure. When Huper Optiks is applied during the winter months, curing times will be increased. We highly recommend using Huper Optiks window films, of course…just know that the time it takes for a high-quality window tint to cure is longer.
