Frequently Asked Questions
That totally depends on how well your DIY skills are. We always describe it like hanging wallpaper; some people find it easy, some more difficult.
It's best to read the fitting instructions we provide with every order (or download them from our website) first and just take your time.
Tip: Contact us on 0845 363 2021 for a quote for installation, as it might be less expensive then you think. You can also ask us for advise on how to fit the film.
You will need:
• Spray Bottle to hold your slip solution
• Washing-up Liquid
• Sharp knife (preferably with a snap off blade)
• Glass Scraper
• Soft and Hard Squeegee
• Lint Free Towel
• Heat Gun (only if you're fitting car tint to a rear window on a car. This is NOT required for flat glass installations)
• Trim Guide
Tip: We sell a standard installation kit with everything you will need to fit window film for only £8.25. We also offer a car installation kit, with and without a heat gun. All installation kits are available online, in our window film tools section.
If you are installing film to standard flat glass in a home or office then the answer is no. If, however, you are tinting a car window then you will usually need a heat gun for the rear window as it is concave and curved from top to bottom and left to right. This means the film will need to be heat shrunk to the contour of the glass before it is installed.
Usually the side windows are flat or curved only in one direction. If it’s a newer car then there may be a chance that the side windows will need to be heat shrunk as well as these can sometimes be curved in both directions.
Tip: Sometimes a powerful hairdryer can be sufficient; you will soon be able to tell if it is warm enough to heat shrink the film, but to give some perspective, our heat guns are 2000W.
If used correctly then it shouldn’t do. Always make sure you have a sharp blade, as blunt or rusty blades can easily damage the glass. Always push the blade and do not pull it back over the glass, as this could pull debris back with it and may scratch the glass. You must always be extremely careful, not only could this scratch the glass, but it could also cause injury if used incorrectly. Only use a glass scraper if you are comfortable with how to use it correctly.
Tip: Why not call us on 0845 363 2021 for installation advise?
We recommend 1 teaspoon of washing up liquid per 1 pint of water. The amount you will need depends on the size of the job. For a small job then a 500ml sprayer will be fine, for a larger job, you will find it easier to have a 2L or 5L sprayer.
Tip: The slip solution should be just slippery enough so that the film can be moved into position when it’s put onto the glass. In the summer, use a higher concentration of washing up liquid to water, to avoid drying out too quick.
The film is fitted internally. It can be fitted externally, but will not last anywhere near as long as an internal application. For example, a Reflective Silver would come with 10 years warranty when installed by us internally. If fitted externally, we would give only a 1 year warranty.
We sell certain films in an external grade, which have weatherable coatings. It is still better, where possible, to fit films internally as an external grade film still won’t last as long as an internal one, plus, it is harder to get a good finish externally as the wind can blow dust under the film.
Tip: Even if it is going to be a bit more work to fit the film internally, it is always better to do so.
Most films have a clear backing liner which is very thin and not visible to the eye. If there was no backing liner, the film would stick to itself, so there is always backing liner on the films. Vinyl does on the other hand usually have a paper backing which is much easier to see.
The backing liner on some films is very thin and can be difficult to remove. The best way to remove the film from the liner is to get a piece of sellotape at either side of a corner and this should pull the liner away.
The only way that a film will not stick is if the backing liner hasn't been removed. If you remove the liner then stick the adhesive part of the film to the glass using the provided instructions, this will stick.The film will take a few days to dry out so if you are filming a car window, don’t wind the windows down for up to a week to allow the adhesive to fully bond, otherwise the film could peel off.
People say it has very tiny pin prick sized spots under the film and that it looks like it’s got a rash or the film has started to bubble. This is actually dirt or dust that’s trapped underneath the film. This can get under the film because of a number of reasons. The first is that the window isn’t cleaned properly and so tiny specs of dirt (this may not be visible to the eye) has been trapped underneath the film. Another cause is dust in the atmosphere, especially if workers are in the room or if fitted externally. Another way this can be caused is if the film has touched something when the backing liner has been removed and as such, dirt has adhered to the underside of the film.
There is no way to get this out. If it’s a very small area and the film hasn't had time to stick you can sometimes pull the film back and spray with lots of water to remove.
Tip: Make sure the room is dust free and the window is thoroughly cleaned first (using a glass scraper). Use a second person if it’s a large piece of film so the adhesive doesn’t touch anything.
When it’s stuck on, within the first 30 minutes it should pull straight off easily, leaving no residue. If the film has dried out, when the film is pulled off it will leave a gluey residue. The only way to clean this will be to use a glass scraper and water.
Note: Car tints are designed to be a permanent film and so if you remove the film from the rear screen, you may damage the heating elements!
Tip: If the glass is toughened you can sometimes use a wallpaper steamer to remove the film, this will soften the adhesive and can sometimes allow the film to be pulled off with no residue left. You must make sure before doing this that the glass will not crack when hot, especially on a cold day. Be aware that laminated safety glass is not the same as toughened and will usually crack if heated in this way.
The film can take up to 30 days to cure (dry out). On warmer days or in warmer areas, it can take less than this. It’s usually adhered well after a few days but to be on the safe side you should allow enough time for the film to completely dry out before cleaning it in any way.
Front Windscreen - NO TINT. ONLY 6" SUNSTRIP THAT DOES NO OBSCURE VISION.
Front Side Windows - MUST HAVE 70% VISIBLE LIGHT TRANSMITTANCE.
Rear Windows - NO LAWS, ANY SHADE.
Tip: If your front side windows already have a tint and then you tint it again with film, it will put the windows over the legal limit and you could be ordered to remove the film by authorities.
