APPLYING AVERY WINDOW TINT FILM - THINGS TO REMEMBER

CLEANING IS VERY IMPORTANT

The first thing to do is to make sure that the vehicle is in a dust-free and well lit environment. This will minimise the risk of any dirt becoming trapped and interfering with the tint and good lighting will give you optimum visibility during application.

Soapy water and a surface cleaner, such as Avery Surface Cleaner will be needed throughout the application process to clean your surface correctly.

USE A HEAT GUN TO SHRINK THE FILM TO SHAPE

When working on the outside of the window, use a heat gun to shrink the tint to the shape of the window. Air channels and tunnels should be removed with a squeegee, such as this one here.

TO FINISH OFF

As a final step, wrap absorbing paper or a cloth around the squeegee and re-squeegee the edges of the film to avoid any lifting. Ensure enough time for drying - the film should be allowed to dry for two weeks after application. This just means that the windows shouldn't be opened or cleaned during this time.
