At Alphawerks Garage, we trust XPEL films to deliver the highest level of window tinting excellence. That’s why we proudly offer two superior options to our clients: XPEL XR Black and XPEL XR Plus films.


XR Black is part of the XPEL Prime series, offering a neutral tone nano-ceramic film. It provides excellent UV and infrared heat rejection, although slightly less than XR Plus. This film maintains a more neutral appearance from inside, making it suitable for those who prefer less tint intensity but still need effective protection.

Available in various shades including, 70, 55, 35, 20, and 5.


XR Plus, also from the XPEL Prime series, is a nano-ceramic film with a slight blue hue. It offers top-notch performance in heat rejection and UV protection, making it ideal for intense sun exposure. The blue hue provides a unique aesthetic, maximizing comfort especially in very sunny climates.

Available in various shades including, 70, 55, 35, 20, and 5.

For a front set of windows, expect a service time of approximately 2 hours. Tinting a full car typically takes between 3.5 to 4 hours, while including the windshield extends the service to about 6 hours.

Please note, Tesla models X, Y, and Three require a full working day of 8 hours for complete tinting services.
Consultation and Selection: Customers discuss their needs, preferences, and legal considerations with a technician. You’ll have the opportunity to select from our range of high-quality tint options including the XPEL XR Black and XR Plus, ensuring the shade and performance fit perfectly with your requirements.

Preparation: We prepare your car for tinting by thoroughly cleaning the windows to remove all contaminants. To protect your car’s interior, especially sensitive areas like the dashboard and electronics, we employ protective measures such as the “soak rope” to prevent any water damage during the application process.


Film Cutting: Precision is key in our process. We use XPEL’s state-of-the-art Digital Pattern Software (DAP) to measure and pre-cut the tint film to your vehicle’s exact window specifications. Any necessary manual adjustments are made to ensure the perfect fit, using tools that prevent any damage to your windows.


Application: The application begins with a water solution to position the film correctly. We then apply the pre-cut tint film to the interior side of the windows, using a squeegee to ensure smooth, bubble-free adhesion.


Drying and Curing: After application, your car will be set aside to allow the film to dry properly. This crucial stage activates the adhesive and begins the bonding process.


Quality Assurance and Clean Up: Technicians perform a comprehensive check to confirm that the tint meets Alphawerks’ standards of quality and customer expectations. We clean up any installation materials and polish your windows for a pristine finish.


Customer Walkthrough and Education: Once the job is complete, we’ll walk you through the finished work, explaining the proper care and maintenance to ensure the longevity of your tint. We also educate you on the curing process, advising on precautions to take immediately post-installation, such as not rolling down the windows for a specified period.
