Living with your new window film.
To ensure the beauty and performance of your new Shore Tint window film, please follow any post installation instructions provided by your dealer. Items below may help protect your window film so it will look and perform great for many years to come.
WHAT IF I SEE BUBBLES OR CLOUDINESS IN THE FILM?
Your dealer will remove as much of the mounting solution as possible during installation, but a small amount always remains – it is normal. The moisture can cause small water bubbles or a slightly cloudy look.
• Allow the film to dry-out on its own
• The moisture will eventually disappear
• During the dry-out process, DO NOT attempt to pierce water bubbles
• Piercing these bubbles will damage your film and void your warranty
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR THE FILMS MOUNTING SOLUTION TO DRY COMPLETELY?
The time it takes for your film to dry-out thoroughly depends on the climate.
• Cold, non-sunny weather can lengthen dry-out time
• Warm weather and direct sunlight will shorten dry-out time
• Drying times can range from 30-90 Days
• Transitional and Security films always take longer to dry because of their added thickness.
WHEN CAN I CLEAN MY WINDOWS AFTER FILM INSTALLATION?
Do not clean windows with newly installed film for at least 30 days after installation. This waiting period is necessary to ensure that the special mounting adhesive cures and adheres to the glass properly.
What type of window cleaner should I use?
After the 30-day waiting period, you can use any quality glass cleaner. An affordable, safe and effective solution for cleaning window film is a mixture of ½ ounce of liquid dish soap added to 1 quart of water.
WHAT KIND OF CLEANING CLOTHS CAN I USE?
• Soft clean cloths or clean synthetic sponges are best
• After washing, dry the surface with a fresh clean cloth or use a soft rubber squeegee to remove excess moisture
• To avoid scratching, never use bristle brushes, abrasive pads, scrubbers or cloths that may be contaminated with grit or dirt particles.
• Some paper towels are coarse enough to make fine scratches and can damage the polished look of window film over time – use them cautiously.
