Answers to Your Questions
Q: What is window film made of?
A: Different polyesters are transformed during the manufacturing process to produce a thin, transparent film that adheres to glass when a pressure sensitive adhesive is activated by a mild solution of dishwashing detergent and water.
Q: Can you apply window film to tinted / Low-E glass?
A: Absolutely! You will notice enhanced energy performance from your tinted / Low-E glass windows after installation.
Q: Will window film ruin my view?
A: Absolutely not! Quality window film will actually reduce so much glare that it will add clarity to your view.
Q: Can window film be applied to all kinds of glass, including double-pane?
A: Window film can be applied to most clear or tinted windows, including insulated glass; however, some restrictions and limitations may apply. Window films are designed for application to glass only.
Q: How will window films affect my plants?
A: Medium and light density films may slow the growth of common household plants for the first several weeks while the plants adjust to the presence of the film. Following the film’s application, plants usually require less watering and this may result in a healthier plant overall. Most indoor plants will thrive with window film, because they won’t “burn” on sunny days.
Q: How do I clean my windows after tinting them?
A: Windex-type cleaners are fine to use with a soft cloth or squeegee. A solution of 1 tsp. of dish soap to 1 qt. water is also good. Do not use straight ammonia or any kind of abrasive on the window film. It’s best to wait 30 days after installation before washing.
