FILM CARE AFTER INSTALLATION

FILM DRY-OUT TIME

During the installation process, your installer will remove as much of the mounting solution as possible, although a small amount will remain. Trapped installation moisture can cause small water bubbles and/or a slightly cloudy look. This is normal and should be expected. Do not attempt to pierce a water bubble during the dry-out period. Water bubbles and a cloudy look will eventually dissipate.  Attempting to pierce a water bubble in an effort to drain moisture will damage your film. This damage is not covered by the warranty.

CLIMATE CONDITIONS & DRY-OUT TIME

Cold and non-sunny weather conditions can lengthen the dry-out time. Warm weather and direct sun light exposure will shorten the dry-out time. If Slow drying occurs, don not become alarmed. The trapped moisture (or bubbles) will dry-out completely. Solar Graphics safety and security films will always have a longer dry-out period due to increased thickness of the film. Thicker films and less than perfect drying climate will lengthen the dry-out period. Dry-out times can vary from a few days to as much as 6 Months. Film type selection and climate conditions will determine the dry-out period you experience.

WINDOW FILM CARE & MAINTENANCE

To obtain maximum service life from your Solar Graphics products, note the following instructions for proper care and maintenance.

CLEANING

Do  not clean the film for 30 days after installation. This will help secure proper curing of the special mounting adhesive to the glass.

CLEANING SOLUTIONS

Most glass cleaners will work, but do not use a commercial glass cleaner with ammonia.  The best and least expensive is 1/2 ounce (tablespoon) of lemon joy dish detergent per quart of water.

CLEANING MATERIALS

Use clean cotton soft materials or Bounty paper towels only to wash and dry your window film surfaces.  Or, a clean new window washing squeegee will do the job.  Wipe down edges with paper towel.

To avoid scratching the film, do not use bristle brushes, abrasive scrubbing sponges, or any cleaning materials that may have been contaminated with dirt particles,  as is commonly the case when washing interior and exterior windows with the same cleaning materials. Some brands of paper towels are coarse enough to put fine scratches in the film, even films with a protective hard coat finish.  While these scratches may be too thin to be seen at the beginning, they can damage the polished look of the film over time.
