Rolling Down Your Windows After Tinting: Everything You Need to Know


The thought of having new window tints installed on your car is exciting. But one question that often comes up is whether or not you can roll down your windows after the tint is installed. In this blog post, we will explore everything you need to know about rolling down your windows after tinting, including the curing process and how to avoid any potential issues.

Understanding the Adhesive Curing Process

The adhesive used to install window tints needs time to fully bond to the glass. If you roll down your windows immediately after the tint is installed, there is a risk that the top edge may peel back due to the contact with the rubber or felt gasket seal around the window edge.

However, after a few days, when the adhesive has fully cured and bonded to the glass, there is no issue with rolling up and down the windows. The amount of time you need to wait will depend on the temperature inside and outside of your car. Generally, the warmer it is, the less time you need to wait, but it’s a good idea to wait at least 3 to 5 days, depending on the time of year.


In conclusion, it’s important to give the adhesive time to fully cure and bond to the glass before rolling down your windows after tinting. By doing so, you’ll avoid any potential issues and ensure that your new tints are installed properly.
