Application Techniques 

  • For best results, the surface must be clean and free of dirt, debris and oils and should be applied when the surface temperature exceeds 50°F (10°C).
  • Use of an application solution and Heavy Duty Squeegee is suggested for easy positioning and squeegee application. 
  • Removal of film layers immediately after wet application is not recommended.
  • Use of film removal tool is recommended for easy peel-back of the target layer. 
  • For detailed Application Instructions and Tips, see 3M Technical Bulletin (70 – 0709 – 5334 – 7).
