Typically tinted films are installed on the interior surface . However you have the option of installing it on exterior surface but be reminded that the film will deteriorate quickly.

Installation Instructions: 

  1.  Step 1 : Measure the window/glass  (height X width  =  window)
  2. Step 2 : Cut the window film roughly an inch larger than the size of your window . For Example : if your window  – 30′′ by 40′′ (cut the film to – 31′′ by 41′′)
  3. – Make sure your glass and windows are clean.
    – Use the scraper to clean the window after spraying it with the soap cleaning solution.
    – To prevent scratches or tugging on the glass – make sure the scraper and window are still wet.
    – Pay close attention to the window’s edges.
    – To reduce the likelihood of dirt and other foreign objects sticking to the glass – avoid applying too much solution to the frame.
    – Spray the window once more – then use a squeegee to slowly scrape the water off the glass.
    – Now – wrap a dry, clean towel around the window’s edges to prevent contaminated water from contaminating the film as it is being installed.
  4. Step 4 : Get the film ready Spray the window’s application surface with the solution liberally. The mixture lowers friction by acting as a lubricant for the film. Spray the adhesive side of the film thoroughly after removing the release liner or film backing from film. Through this process any static charge generated by the removal of the liner is reduced, contamination is lessened, to taht the film is kept from sticking to itself. By placing two pieces of adhesive tape at the corner of each of the film’s surfaces, the liner can be removed. To assit with the liner removal process, firmly press the two pieces of tape together to pull them apart. Before handling the film, wet your hands with the solution to prevent leaving fingerprints on the adhesive.

  5. Apply the film:
    Place the adhesive side of the film onto the glass while still moistening the film and the window. Allow the film to softly stick to the glass starting at the top left and right.
    As long as the window and film are thoroughly wet, you will still be able to re-position the film and place it correctly.
    To avoid squeegee drag, spray the entire non-adhesive surface of the film facing you with the soapy solution. Remove as much water or washing solution as you can using the squeegee.
    To set the film,
    1 – Squeegee horizontally across the surface two inches from the top.
    2 – Squeegee vertically downward starting from the middle.
    Push the water or soapy solution out from under the film by continuing to squeegee horizontally from the centre to the edges.Overlapping your squeegee strokes will maximize water removal
  6. Step 6 : Cut or trim the film:
    To temporarily lay the film against the glass and frame, run a trim guide or plastic card along the edge of film.
    To start trimming – insert the retractable knife between the trim guide and the edge. Make sure the retractable knife’s blade is always sharp. Immediately after trimming, squeegee the film once more using the same methology as previous step .
  7. Step 7 :
    Finish by drying the edges.
    Use a gentle & lint-free cloth to wrap the plastic card or trim guide.
    Lightly smudge or wipe off the edges to get rid of extra water .
    Be sure to give the film time to fully recover.
    Various elements, such as the type of film used, how well water is removed, and others, will affect the healing process.
    If air bubbles develop or persist, re moistures the film surface that is facing you and squeegee it once again.
    Give it at least 72 hours to dry.
