How long does it take to install window film?
It all depends on the number of windows that need tint and as well as the type of car for example.
Is window film installed on the inside or the outside of the glass?
Window film is always applied to the inside of the glass. Installers simply use the outside of the window to cut & heat shrinking the window film for a proper fit.

Will window film stop all interior fading?
No. Window film will not completely eliminate fading from occurring. Depending on the type of window film that is applied, window film can reduce fading by up to 70%. It's important to note there are multiple causes for fading – UV rays, solar heat and visible light and window film can combat all of these threats.
How long does it take for the Window Films to dry?
We suggest not rolling down your windows of 72 hours if this film is going on to an automobile. We recommend allowing thirty days for the film to fully dry and cure. During this curing process, it is normal to have small water bubbles and/or a hazy appearance. These will disappear as the film dries; depending upon the film type and weather conditions, drying may take as much as 30 (or even 45) days, or as little as a few days. Once dried, The Black Box Tint Window Films will look great and perform for many years to come.
How long does the Window Film last?
Our window film products are made to last for many years. The exact length of time depends upon the type of film applied, window orientation, type of glass it is applied to and the particular climate in which it is applied. Most applications last well beyond the warranty length.
