squared backing paper simplifies measuring and ensures straight,
clean-cut edges. When applying film to larger surface areas, first
remove one inch of backing paper and smooth down this initial section.
Then, while evenly removing the backing paper with one hand,
progressively smooth down the foil with the other hand. Always smooth
from the center to the edges. For best results smooth with a soft
cloth, this allows you to flatten out any air bubbles or soft creases.
Should air bubbles form nonetheless, just prick them with a pin and
flatten out. If the film has been applied, but it appears misaligned -
no problem! Because full adhesion occurs only after several hours, the
film can be carefully removed without stretching and reapplied
Please note: If the film appears to have soft creases before applying,
these will not show after installation. (see the dishwasher
installation photos – the film appeared to have serious creases. Those
creases disappeared once the film was installed and smoothed)
wet method is as is sounds.. The same steps used above, but first
wetting the mating surface liberaly with normal tap water. It
takes a while longer for the adhesive to set, but the film is even
easier to manuver.
film is just as easy to remove as it was to apply. Normally it can be
simply peeled off. But if it adheres more firmly, it should be warmed
with a hair dryer and then effortlessly removed. Any adhesive leftovers
can be cleaned off with turpentine or an alcohol-based solvent. To
remove dissolved adhesive use a damp cloth sprinkled with some flour.
is totally indifferent to dirt. Cleaning with warm water is usually
fully adequate. For more stubborn stains a drop of detergent does the
trick. Dry off the damp areas with a soft towel.. The film does not
react to normal surface cleaners, so feel free to treat the surface
just like a counter top. Avoid any cleaners containing abrasives as the
surface will scratch or at least become dull.
