Get your renovations done right the first time. At Scottish Window Tinting, we’ve mastered the skills and techniques for installing window film in perfection. We use the following procedure to install window films that achieve crystal clarity and an immaculate finish:
Our installation process begins with a thorough inspection and onsite consultation. We like to examine your windows in person to gain a better understanding of your building and find out more about your goals for the project. This also allows us to take exact site measurements and draft a plan. At this time, we will schedule an appointment to install the film at a time that’s convenient for you, which includes off hour availability.
We arrive prepared for the installation. Prior to your appointment, we cut all the film in advance with a plotter to speed up the installation process. This also helps to keep our services more eco friendly by minimizing product waste. During your appointment, we clean all of the windows and apply C-Bond as a primer. Then, the film is applied to the prepared glass.
Next, we add our final touches to the windows. We squeegee out all of the C-Bond primer and clean up the edges of the glass.* Then, we inspect the glass and film to make sure that there are no defects or flaws present. After about 24-72 hours, the adhesive is fully set and the project is completed.**
**Please note, for projects that are not applied with C-Bond, it may take up to four weeks for the film to achieve full clarity and adhesion. In certain cases that involve well-shaded areas or interior rooms that lack sunlight, there can be adhesion problems when C-Bond is not used for the installation.
*This step does not apply to projects that do not involve C-Bond primer.
In the past, soap and water have been used as a method for priming glass prior to installing film. While this proves to be effective in eliminating visible imperfections in the film, this technique does nothing to improve the glass itself. C-Bond works at a molecular level to increase glass strength and resistance to shattering. We believe that using C-Bond is a better way for installing window film due to its ability to:
-Increase glass strength by at least 100%
-Prevent cracking from temperature differences
-Defend against hail, golf balls, and lawn mower rocks
-Speed up the drying time for window film
-Improve window clarity during installation
C-Bond Systems recently emerged on the market as a way to improve building security and increase glass resistance to shattering. That’s why we use C-Bond I on all general window film applications. However, we also offer C-Bond II, which is a system of window film layers and adhesive that has the ability to provide ballistic resistance.
