General Window Film Care

  • Avoid winding down car windows within the first 48 hours of installation.
  • Allow a minimum of 7 days to pass after installation before you clean the surface to ensure complete binding of the films to window.
  • The surface may be washed with common cleaning solutions.
  • Do not paste stickers or other adhesive materials (including suction cups) within the first week of installation. You may put up car decals after this period.
  • Do not peel at the edges of window films.
  • Refrain from using abrasive type cleaning agents and bristle brushes that will scratch the film. Instead, it is recommended to use synthetic sponges, squeegees, or soft cloth with a cleaning solution.


Solar Film Information “Halo-effect”

  • Due to the nature of light, when it passes through the glass especially at the demister area, it will refract and hence causes the “halo-effect” - pronounced bright stripes that are observed at night when another car's headlights shine from behind.
  • The intensity varies from car to car and performance of the film is not affected.


Water Bubbles

  • Water bubbles are inevitable in every solar film application and are temporary.
  • Allow up to 2 weeks, during which the car is exposed to the sun for at least 1 week, for the bubbles to evaporate.
  • If the bubbles are still visible after 3 weeks, you may approach 3M or your installer for assistance.


Note: For the first week after film installation, the windows might appear hazy. This effect will disappear after the water vapour has evaporated.
