Applying 3M™ film is a technical process that requires a certified 3M™ dealer.
Working in the interior of the property, the first stage in the process is to prepare the window to receive the film. The specialist clears the area around the window, removing any window coverings such as curtains or blinds. They then clean the window using a special cleaning solution and razor blade scrapers.
The goal for the window film installer is to remove as much dirt, dust, particles and debris as possible from the glass surface and surrounding frame to get a clean installation.
Once the window is prepped, they prepare the film by spraying it with a solution that allows them to adjust it to the proper position. They then apply the film to the window and use a squeegee and other specialty tools to ensure that there are no air bubbles. The film is then cut to the size of the glass pane with a trim card and razor blade.
