    How long does it take for window films to adhere fully?

    The initial adhesion of 3M™ Automotive Window Film takes at least 48 hours to be reached. Final adhesion can take up to 30 days due to evaporation of the application fluid and this process is also dependant on the surrounding environment. During this period the film must not be cleaned.
