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.
