Whether as a privacy shield, sunshade or purely decorative element – glass foils are fashion-forward. The universally applicable design of the d-c-fix® foil Static Premium Ilva is an absolute multitasker. In this way, the shielding glass foil creates more space for a private ambience and makes retreating into your own four walls even more pleasant. And as a bonus it keeps you looking young by screening out harmful UV rays. Yay!
Our expert, Mark Kühler, attached a statically adhesive glass foil in Loft-style to the kitchen windows in his kitchen makeover and was thrilled about the result. Window films by d-c-fix® are easy to handle – it immediately changes the interior ambience and highlights the coziness of the whole layout. The outside world stays outside, which is clearly a benefit when enjoying a breakfast for two in pajamas. Members only! Let the neighbors get their gossip somewhere else.
Another advantage: The window film Static Premium Ilva by d-c-fix® is applied as easily as it is removed and reused – making it very environmentally friendly. It can be applied to any glass surface, not just windows.
In the next four steps, Mark Kühler will demonstrate the easy handling of static glass foil by d-c-fix®.
Time to leave the outside where it is.
You will need…
Measure the height and width of the window pane and cut the foil to size with a utility knife. Allow a distance of 2 to 3 millimeters to the silicone seal (or to the window putty for windows in old buildings).
Now spray the d-c-fix® installation liquid onto the window pane. This creates a uniform and full-surface film that prevents unwanted water inclusions and the film from sticking to dry areas. The liquid also ensures good gliding properties so that the film can be positioned easily.
Important: The back of the Premium Foil is covered by a transparent protective film, which must be removed before attaching the film to the pane. The easiest way to remove them is to stick a piece of adhesive tape to the front and back of the foil and then slowly pull the two layers apart.
Now use the squeegee to carefully spread the water out towards the edge of the foil so that it holds properly. Follow up by wiping it dry with a soft cloth.
You can avoid unsightly stains under the foil by cleaning the window thoroughly before starting work and making sure your hands are clean. You'll be amazed at the results!
