How to. Removing film/vinyl with adhesive.
Our window films can always be easily removed without damaging the glass.
When removing film or vinyl with a removable or permanent adhesive, you want to do it in full direct sunlight (during application you do NOT what direct sunlight). So the film/adhesive is as warm as possible, due to the fact of being pre-heated by the sun.
In addition, you should use an infrared-heater/heat-gun to further increase the temperature of the film (mainly important for films with a permanent adhesive). Always gently heat the film, while moving the heat source around in a circular motion, do not keep the heat source pointed on a single spot for any length of time.
If warm enough the film should be easy to remove, while leaving little to no adhesive behind. If adhesive is left behind during removal of a permanent adhesive film, the film is likely not warm/hot enough. Increase the temperature of the vinyl/film during removal.
On a glass/hard surface, you can also cut the film in strips of 300 mm in width, to make the removal easier.
We advice you pull the film/sticker along the mounting surface itself and not to pull away from the mounting surface. Start at the top and pull the film towards the floor (not towards yourself/away from the mounting surface). Thus, flip the material over onto itself, a 180 degree. As to put as little tension onto the mounting surface as possible, thus to minimise the chance of damaging the mounting surface. And leaving as little residue/adhesive behind as possible.
Removing Removable Vinyl
Removing removable vinyl (like our floor stickers) is simple. Just pull the sticker. We advice you pull the material/vinyl along the mounting surface and not to pull away from the mounting surface. Thus, flip the material over onto itself, a 180 degree. As to put as little tension onto the mounting surface as possible, thus minimising the chance of damaging the mounting surface.
Static window cling
Static window cling does not have an adhesive, so removal should be a 1 second job. No tools are required.
