Viewing the film from a distance of ten feet at angles up to 45 degrees from either side of the glass, the film itself shall not appear distorted. b. It shall not be necessary to seal around the edges of the applied film system with a lacquer or other substance in order to prevent moisture or free water from penetrating under the film system.

    5.0 Application

    5.1 Examination: Examine glass surfaces to receive new film and verify that they are free from defects and imperfections, which will affect the final appearance. Correct all such deficiencies before starting film application.

    5.2 Preparation:

    a The window and window framing will be cleaned thoroughly with a neutral cleaning solution. The inside surface of the window glass shall be bladed with industrial razors to insure the removal of any foreign contaminants.

    b Toweling or other absorbent material shall be placed on the window sill or sash to absorb moisture accumulation generated by the film application.

    5.3 Installation: The film shall be applied as to the specifications of the Manufacturer by an ADA. Materials will be delivered to the job site with the manufacturer’s labels intact and legible.

    b. To minimize waste, the film will be cut to specification utilizing a vertical dispenser designed for that purpose. Film edges shall be cut neatly and square at a uniform distance of 1/8″ (3 mm) to 1/16″ (1.6 mm) of the window-sealing device.

    c. Clear, clean water will be used to remove the water soluble overcoat that protects the pressure sensitive adhesive. Water and film slip solution only will be used on the window glass to facilitate the proper positioning of the film.

    d. To insure efficient removal of excess water from the underside of the film and to maximize bonding of the pressure sensitive adhesive, polyplastic bladed squeegees will be utilized.

    e. Upon completion, the film shall have a dimpled appearance from residual moisture. Said moisture shall, under reasonable weather conditions, dry flat with no moisture dimples within a period of 30 calendar days when viewed under normal viewing conditions.

    f. After installation, any left over material will be removed and the work area will be returned to original condition. Use all necessary means to protect the film before, during and after the installation.

    6.0 Cleaning

    6.1 The film may be washed using common window cleaning solutions, including ammonia solutions, 30 days after application. Abrasive type cleaning agents and bristle brushes, which could scratch the film, must not be used. Synthetic sponges or soft cloths are recommended.

    7.0 Warranty

    7.1 In that the film will maintain solar reflective properties without cracking, crazing, delaminating, peeling, or discoloration. In the event that the product is found to be defective under warranty, the film manufacturer (3M) will replace such quantity of the film proved to be defective. The application shall be warranted by the film manufacturer (3M) for a period of ten (10) years additionally provide the removal and reapplication labor free of charge.
