Step-by-step Guide to Installing Frosted Window Films

Here’s a step-by-step guide to installing frosted window films, from preparation to application and maintenance:


1. Gather Materials

– Frosted window film kit
– Measuring tape
– Spray bottle with water and a few drops of mild dish soap
– Squeegee or credit card
– Utility knife or sharp blade
– Lint-free cloth or microfiber towel

2. Clean the Window

– Thoroughly clean the window to ensure there is no dust, dirt, or grime. Use a glass cleaner or a mixture of water and a few drops of dish soap.

3. Measure and Cut

– Measure the dimensions of the window accurately.
– Cut the frosted window film slightly larger than the window size, leaving about an extra inch on all sides.


4. Prepare the Film

– Lay the frosted film flat on a clean surface with the backing facing up.
– Spray a light mist of the soapy water solution on the adhesive side of the film.

5. Position the Film

– Carefully align the film with the window, ensuring it covers the entire glass area.
– The extra inch of film on each side allows for adjustment during installation.

6. Apply the Film

– Gently press the film onto the glass surface, starting from the top.
– As you press, the soapy water will allow you to reposition the film if needed.

7. Squeegee Out Air Bubbles

– Starting from the center, use a squeegee or credit card to push out any air bubbles or excess water towards the edges.
– Work your way to the edges, being careful not to apply too much pressure that might damage the film.

8. Trim Excess Film

– Once the film is smooth and bubble-free, use a utility knife or sharp blade to trim the excess film along the edges of the window frame.


9. Allow Drying Time

– Leave the frosted film to dry for at least 24 hours. During this time, any remaining moisture or bubbles will evaporate.

10. Regular Cleaning

– Clean the frosted film with a soft, lint-free cloth or microfiber towel.
– Use a gentle glass cleaner or a mixture of water and a drop of dish soap for stubborn dirt.

11. Avoid Abrasive Materials

– Do not use abrasive cleaners, brushes, or rough materials that could scratch or damage the frosted film.

12. Be Cautious with Heat

– Be mindful of using heat sources near the film, as excessive heat can affect the adhesive.

13. Handle with Care

– When opening or closing windows, be gentle to avoid peeling or damaging the film.

14. Replace if Necessary

– If the film becomes damaged, faded, or starts peeling, consider replacing it to maintain the aesthetics and functionality.

Remember, proper installation and maintenance will ensure that your frosted window film looks great and serves its purpose effectively. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions and take your time to achieve the best results.

Window Tint Film FAQ

Window tint film is a thin, multi-layered polyester material that incorporates the many different layers to control different properties, including Ultra-Violet (UV) light, heat, glare, and privacy. Window film comes in a variety of performance levels and shades.

Window tint film actually has several benefits. Firstly, it can help to reduce the amount of heat that enters your car or home, which can make it more comfortable and reduce your energy bills. Additionally, it can protect your skin and eyes from harmful UV rays, which can cause sunburn and other damage. Another benefit is increased privacy, as tinted windows can make it harder for people to see inside. Finally, window tint film can also help to reduce glare on sunny days, which can be especially helpful when driving or working.

Film percentages stand for light transmission, or the amount of light that is allowed through the film. The lower the percentage, the darker the film.

No. In most cases, window film is installed on the inside of the glass. This allows for maximum durability. On vehicles, the window tint is hand-cut on the outside of the glass, then installed on the interior of the glass.

Yes, window film adds a degree of shatter resistance to the glass areas of your home, building, or vehicle. These films bond to glass and help hold dangerous glass fragments in place, should breakage occur due to accident, natural disaster, or illegal entry.

Yes. The same sun that brightens a room’s interior can be detrimental to fabrics, furnishings, artwork, and rugs. Ultraviolet rays are the main cause of both fade and deterioration. Window films can screen out 99% of the damaging UV rays that can fade richly colored furniture, tapestries, and artwork. Heat and light also play a part in fading, but using window film to block nearly 100% of UV rays will increase the life of your personal property for years.

Yes. Window films give a clear view to the outside. Depending on the degree of privacy desired, you can select films that prevent others from looking in during the daytime.

No. The adhesive is meant to adhere to glass only. Window film should only be applied to glass surfaces that have a smooth finish. Plastics, Plexiglas, or Lexan contain too much oil for the film to adhere properly for a long period of time.

In summer, window film reflects the hot sun, reducing heat gain and lowering air conditioning costs. In winter, window film retains heat — up to 15% — to reduce heating costs. This year-after-year reduction in energy costs can yield an impressive return on investment.

  1. Window film creates a more comfortable environment through consistent climate control by eliminating “cold wall” and “hot wall” problems. Rooms stay more comfortable in the summer and winter, be reducing “hot spots”, no matter where the sun is shining.

Yes. Glare not only can cause eye fatigue, but it can also be dangerous when driving. It reduces the amount of light allowed through the film, therefore allowing you to see better and not stress your eyes.
