Applying Rear Window Graphics

Requirements for installation:

It will take a minimum of 2 people to properly install your rear window graphic on your window. The temperature must be a between 45° and 90° Fahrenheit in order for the adhesive bond to form correctly. Glass must be completely CLEAN and DRY before the installation.

You will need the following items in order to properly install your window graphic:

  • Soap & water to clean the window
  • A soft, clean lint-free cotton cloth
  • A new, sharp razor for trimming to size
  • Masking tape
  • Measuring Tape

Preparing the Surface: The window must be thoroughly cleaned before the rear window graphic is applied. Clean the glass using soapy water, and then thoroughly rinse the window. Be sure that the window is completely free from any remaining soap residue.

DO NOT USE ANY CHEMICAL BASED WINDOW CLEANERS AS THIS MAY REACT NEGATIVELY WITH THE ADHESIVE

Installation:

Before removing backing material, unroll the graphic and select the position on the window that is desired. You may wish to use masking tape along the top edge to temporarily hold the graphic in the desired position. Be sure to measure accurately for exact placement on your desired surface.

Once desired placement is selected, position 1 person on either side of the window and carefully begin removing the backing material starting from the top and working your way to the bottom.

WARNING:
DO NOT STRETCH THE MATERIAL. THIS WILL CAUSE THE PRODUCT TO CURL AND LIFT FROM THE WINDOW AFTER IT IS INSTALLED. While pealing away backing material, gently smooth the film against the window.

If air bubbles form during this process, gently lift the material and reapply while smoothing the bubble area. Once graphic is completely flat against the window and all wrinkles and air bubbles are removed, start from the center of the glass and gently rub the entire area with a soft, clean, lint-free towel to secure the adhesive to the glass.

Carefully trim with the razor blade the excess material around the perimeter of the window trim. WARNING: USE EXTREME CAUTION WHEN TRIMMING TO AVOID INJURY AND TO AVOID DAMAGE TO THE VEHICLE. Discard excess material.

Removal Instructions:

The product can be easily removed by starting at one corner and pealing the film from the window. If necessary, use a plastic scrapper to help loosen the material from the glass, then peal away from the window. Remaining residue can be easily removed with a glass cleaner.

WARNING:
Do NOT use an ice scrapper on the rear window or risk of damage to the film may occur. This product was to be applied to the OUTSIDE of the rear window only. This product requires trimming with a sharp razor blade.
