Our installers use a special soapy solution during installation. Some of this solution will become trapped between the glass and film (small bubbles or a hazy appearance) but this will disappear as the film dries. The dry-out or curing time is necessary for the film adhesive to properly bond to the glass. How long it takes depends upon the type of film applied and weather conditions during and after the installation. We will be able to tell you upon inquiry depending on which film we will be fitting.
