Ceramic Pro Americas has partnered with Americana Global, a leading professional detailing supplies manufacturer, to develop a series of products that are formulated specifically for KAVACA Window Films. 

The products listed on this aftercare instruction page are the only ones recommended by Ceramic Pro Americas for routine cleaning the inside and outside of automotive windows with our window tint products.



Your Ceramic Pro KAVACA Window Film was installed by certified tinters. While the tint has initially bonded to the inside of your windows prior to it being released to you, the adhesive needs some time to cure.

Please follow these directions to ensure your window film cures correctly.

Step 1: Do Not Roll Down Windows For 3-5 Days

The film may take 1-4 weeks to completely cure depending on environmental conditions such as temperature and how much sun the vehicle sees.

The more sun and heat the vehicle sees, the faster the drying process.

Step 2: Be Aware of Some Common Side Effects

Window film is applied with soapy water and as the water evaporates, the film bonds to the glass.

During this time the film may look:

  • Hazy
  • Foggy
  • Streaked
  • Orange peel texture
  • Water blisters

This is a natural side-effect of the installation process. All of these will go away as the film cures. Do not push or move any water that is trapped in between the glass and the film


KAVACA Window Films utilize nanotechnology within the multiple layers of film and the adhesive to provide superior protection against UV and IR emissions from the sun. It due to this technology that using the recommended aftercare cleaners is required, to maintain it’s integrity and reduce damage to the film.

It is CRITICAL to not use ANY cleaning solutions with ammonia or alcohols in the chemical. Most glass cleaners (such as Windex) utilize these two ingredients in their cleaning products.

*NOTE: Ammonia and Alcohols WILL eventually break down the integrity of the film, leading to fading, cracking, and discoloration. Using ammonia or alcohol-based cleaners will void any manufacturers warranty.

Cleaning Instructions

Step 1: Do NOT clean your windows for at least seven days after your tint was installed and the vehicle released back to you.

Step 2: For the remainder of the curing process (first full month), you can clean your windows but be sure to use light pressure especially on all edges of the film.

Step 3: Secure the recommended cleaning supplies. For proper cleaning of KAVACA Window Film, you will use:

Step 4: Prior to starting the window cleaning process, verify that the windows are cool to the touch. For best results the windows should be cool and out of direct sunlight.

Step 5: Shake up the bottle of Americana Global Ceramic Cleaner prior to use.

Step 6: Spray a fine mist of Americana Global Ceramic Glass Cleaner onto the glass surface. A little goes a long way, so there is no need to saturate the glass surface.

Step 7: Fold a Ceramic Pro Microfiber Waffle Weave towel into four parts. Use one side of a clean and dry Ceramic Pro Microfiber Waffle Weave towel to wipe the window.

Step 8: Flip to dry side of towel and buff off the entire window for a streak free finish.

Step 9: If streaks are still visible, use a dry Ceramic Pro Flat Microfiber Glass Towel to polish the glass.

Step 10: Repeat the process on both sides of the window.

Key Tips On What To Avoid

  • Never use cleaning solutions with ammonia in them.
  • Avoid buildup of sand and dirt in the bottom gasket of a moving window. Use compressed air to blow out the bottom gasket of window seals occasionally.
  • Prevent dog claws or anything sharp rubbing on the inside of the window.
  • Avoid swinging seatbelt buckle into side window when unbuckling.
