Below you find instructions on how to apply frosted window film (cut). You have been supplied with bubble free window film. So you do not need to use any water.

  • Always keep your frosted window film flat so that is does not bend/fold.
  • Make sure to not apply window film in direct sunlight, make sure the temperature of the window film, the window it self and the surrounding air is -ideally- around 12 to 18 degrees Celsius. When the temperature is above 18 degrees we advise you to apply the window film during the early mornings or after sundown.
  • Clean the window thoroughly. Remove paint, grease and other dirt. If any is left behind, it will always be visible!
  • Also clean the surrounding area, like the window frame itself. If you are applying near the ceiling and/or the ground make sure they are also clean. Also be wear of flying insects.
  • Use the supplied squeegee and card over the application-tape on the front of the frosted window film to further increase the binding between the two.  Use a flat surface, like a table.
  • Remove the backing paper. Carefully. When the film contains cut-outs/letters/elements, be very careful when removing the backing paper, as to not tear the film itself, when parts remain stuck to the backing paper. Take your time, most mistakes occur here!
  • You are supplied with bubble free frosted window film. So no water is required.
  • Apply the window film with the application-tape to the window, position it at the preferred location.
  • Use your supplied free squeegee. Start in the middle/centre of the window film and move horizontal with overlapping movements towards the edge of the window film. During which you hold the window film a couple centimetres (2 inches) above the window/mirror itself.
  • Check to see if there is still any air trapped between the window film and the window itself. In the rare occasion that air is still trapped between the window and the window film. Gently push the air bubble to the edge of the window film (nearest part of the window not covered with window film). No need to use force. If you do not succeed without using force use a pinprick to burst the air bubble.
  • Allow the adhesive enough time to stick to the window. So that removing the application tape does not lift the frosted film from the surface/window/mirror. Remove the application tape after a couple of hours, 6 to 12 hours should be enough.
  • If, when removing the application tape, you lift the window film from the window glass. Wait 24 to 48 hours before removing the application tape.
