How to Apply Window Glass Protection Film

Posted by

Applying a glass protection film to your windows is not only great for blocking UV rays and reducing glare, it can also help you keep heat inside during the colder months. By applying this clear coat of protective plastic sheeting over any window in your home, including sliding doors and mirror surfaces that are exposed to direct sunlight throughout the day.

The first step towards applying a protection film is choosing the shades and patterns that work for you. The options include; etched, frosted, and stained glass which are all very versatile in design to match anyone's desires.

Applying Glass Protection Film


1. Prepare Your Glass Surface

Clean your glass in preparation for the process. Use a glass cleaner and a glass scraper to get rid of all dust and particles and to make it whiter, brighter and more reflective. The adhesive will be better able to stick if there is no dust or other particles in sight.

2. Prepare the Film

Begin the process of preparing your window film. The films all come with a protective plastic cover to keep them from being scratched or damaged while you're not using it, but this is only temporary! Use adhesive strips to remove that layer and then use mounting fluid on the side where there's an adhesive strip- like glue for paper - in order to make sure that any time you stick one piece onto another they won't get stuck together.

Spray the film and the window pane with your mounting liquid mixture.

Place your film at the centre of your window pane. If you have trouble pushing the film, you may not have used enough mounting fluid.

Spray the back of the film for easy handling.

Press your assembly liquid evenly towards the rubber seal. Start from the middle to the right, and then to the left. Press it until there is no residual liquid left under the film.

Dab the edges gently using a clean soft cloth.

3. Edge Sealing

After installing an outer film, you need to seal the edges from the outside. After drying, use vinegar-free silicone.

4. Clean the Surface

Let the film dry for up to three days. During that period, avoid touching it and keep it free of dirt and dust. After a few weeks, it is safe to clean your window film. You may use a cotton cloth or paper towel.

You don't need any special solutions to clean the glass. Use regular glass cleaners or detergent. Use cleaners that don't contain acids. Acidic materials can damage your glass protection film.

Glass is a popular choice for modern buildings. You can use a protection film on your glass windows. It allows you to enjoy natural lighting without having to put up with the harmful effects of UV rays.
