General information

Always, first read, our extensive general information here.

Below you find instructions on how to apply you own unique transparent window film. You have been supplied with bubble free transparent window film with print. So you do not need to use any water.

  • Make sure to not apply printed transparent window film in direct sunlight, make sure the temperature of the transparent window film with print, 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.
  • Read the instructions supplied with your printed transparent window film. Always keep your transparent window film flat so that is does not bend/fold.
  • Clean the window and window frame 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 printed transparent 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, 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 printed transparent window film. So no water is required.
  • Apply the transparent window film with the application-tape to the window, position the printed transparent window film with print at the preferred location.
  • Use your supplied free squeegee. Start in the middle/centre of the transparent window film and move horizontal with overlapping movements towards the edge of the transparent window film. During which you hold the printed transparent window film a couple centimetres (2 inches) above the window/mirror itself.
  • Check to see if there is still any air trapped between the transparent window film and the window itself. In the rare occasion that air is still trapped between the window and the transparent window film. Gently push the air bubble to the edge of the printed transparent window film (nearest part of the window not covered with printed transparent 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 transparent 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 transparent window film from the window glass. Wait 24 to 48 hours before removing the application tape.
