STATIC CLING SIGN APPLICATION & REMOVAL TECHNIQUES
Static cling films can be applied to a variety of surfaces, such as glass, plastic, chrome, and high gloss smooth painted surfaces.
For proper adhesion, surface must be clean and dry. This product will not adhere properly to grease, oil, and dirt. Clean the surface with the below methods:
- Mineral spirits, heptane or V.M. & P naphtha can be used to remove oil or grease.
- Mild dish soap with warm water and soft cloth will clean the surface prior to application.
- An ammonia based window cleaner must be used on all glass surfaces.
For best results, application surface and materials should be at 30 degrees F or above.
- Prepare a wetting solution of 2–3 teaspoons of dish soap in one gallon of cold water.
- Remove the decal from the liner and lay the decal on a clean, flat surface with the side up which will be adhered to the surface.
- Flood the application surface with wetting solution. (Alternate method—wetting solution can be sprayed directly on the surface.)
- Place the cling in contact with the application surface. The wetting solution will allow the decal to be slid across the application surface for positioning purposes.
- Once the film is in position, roll the water out, working from the center of the decal to the edges. Use a rubber roller or a squeegee.
- Use paper towels to blot any excess moisture. Rub the edges to ensure the cling has adhered properly.
- After 24 hours the window may be washed, but do not use a squeegee.
This product can be easily be removed and reused. Decals must be stored on the liner in a clean and dry environment.
When reusing decals, if adhesion seems low, dip decals in warm water to increase adhesion, then apply.
