As a leader in both adhesive and film technologies, 3M brings together these disciplines to create the finest products available for both residential and commercial use. Our line of films provides an elegant means for solving many of the most challenging aspects of managing the energy use of your home or business.
Our films reduce up to 99 percent of the sun's ultraviolet rays and reject up to 79 percent of the solar heat that may otherwise come through a window and redirect daylight to increase occupant comfort, and overall energy efficiency. It also helps reduce winter heat loss by reflecting up to 17 percent of indoor heat back into the room. They are also easy on the eyes. On the outside, they give your home or business a more pleasing, unified look. On the inside, our films reduce the level of glare for you and others.
3M Sun Control and Ultra Safety & Security Window Films not only save energy, they help protect your furnishings, drapes, carpet, woodwork and artwork from destructive ultraviolet rays that are the leading cause of fading and have a toughness that allows these films to withstand day-to-day abuse.

** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** 3M Prestige Window Films, provides the benefits of a world-class window film while leaving the beauty of your windows virtually unchanged. Because 3M Prestige Window Films use no metals, they are not susceptible to corrosion including coastal environments and do not interfere with mobile phone reception. Other window films that reject heat tend to have high reflectivity, but not Prestige. 3M Prestige Window Films offer reflectivity that is actually lower than glass. A final key technical feature of the Prestige line of products is that they were designed to perform best when the sun is high, at the hottest parts of the day so, when the sun is working hardest, 3M Films are performing their best.

** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** 3M Exterior Series Sun Control Window Films are designed to be applied to the exterior of the glass. These films utilize a UV durable hardcoat, tested in 3M's world class weathering facilities, to deliver the durability you require. The 3M Exterior Prestige Series Window Films, provides the benefits of a world-class window film while leaving the beauty of your windows virtually unchanged. Because 3M Exterior Prestige Window Films use no metals, they are not susceptible to corrosion including coastal environments and do not interfere with mobile phone reception. 3M Prestige Window Films offer reflectivity that is actually lower than glass. The 3M Exterior Traditional Series Window Films utilize a metalized layer to provide solar performance as well as a reflective look to the glass. Delete if not required.

PART 3 EXECUTION
 
3.1
EXAMINATION
A.
Film Examination:
1.
If preparation of glass surfaces is the responsibility of another installer, notify Architect in writing of deviations from manufacturer's recommended installation tolerances and conditions.
a.
Glass surfaces receiving new film should first be examined to verify that they are free from defects and imperfections, which will affect the final appearance.
2.
Do not proceed with installation until glass surfaces have been properly prepared and deviations from manufacturer's recommended tolerances are corrected. Prepare surfaces using the methods recommended by the manufacturer for achieving the best result under the project conditions.
3.
Commencement of installation constitutes acceptance of conditions.
3.2
PREPARATION
A.
Clean surfaces thoroughly prior to installation.
B.
Prepare surfaces using the methods recommended by the manufacturer for achieving the best result for the substrate under the project conditions.
C.
Refer to Manufacturer's installation instructions for methods of preparation for Impact Protection Adhesive or Impact Protection Profile film attachment systems
3.3
INSTALLATION, GENERAL
A.
General: Install in accordance with manufacturer's instructions and the following.
1.
Cut film edges neatly and square at a uniform distance of 1/8 inch (3 mm) to 1/16 inch (1.5 mm) of window sealant.
2.
Spray the slip solution, composed of one capful of baby shampoo or dishwashing liquid to 1 gallon of water, on window glass and adhesive to facilitate proper positioning of film.
3.
Apply film to glass and lightly spray film with slip solution.
4.
Squeegee from top to bottom of window.
5.
Bump film edge with lint-free towel wrapped around edge of a 5-way tool.
6.
Upon completion of film application, allow 30 days for moisture from film installation to dry thoroughly, and to allow film to dry flat with no moisture dimples when viewed under normal viewing conditions.
7.
If completing an exterior application, check with the manufacturer as to whether edge sealing is required.
 
** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete if daylight redirection film not required.
 
1)
Daylight Redirection Film Installation:
8.
Install in accordance with manufacturer's instructions.
a.
Film is intended for installation in clerestory windows, minimum 7 feet (2.13m) above finished floor space.
b.
This film is directional - it has a top and a bottom. Identify and mark the top of the film.
9.
1Pre-cut the film neatly and squarely to the proper height and width, approximately 1/4" (6 mm) shorter than the window opening prior to installation. Use a new blade tip after 3 to 4 cuts.
10.
2Seal the left and right film edges with 3M 3950 Edge Sealer. Allow approximately 5-10 minutes for the edge sealer to dry.
11.
Spray the slip solution, composed of one capful of baby shampoo or dishwashing liquid to 1 gallon of water, on window glass and adhesive to facilitate proper positioning of film.
12.
4Apply film to glass and spray film surface with slip solution. Squeegee from top to bottom of window with either horizontal or vertical strokes to ensure water is fully removed.
13.
Cut film edges neatly and squarely at a uniform distance of 1/8 inch (3 mm) from window sealant.
14.
Bump film edge with lint-free towel wrapped around edge of a 5-way tool, using a horizontal wiping motion.
15.
Upon completion of film application, allow 30 days for moisture from film installation to dry thoroughly, and to allow film to dry flat with no moisture dimples when viewed under normal viewing conditions
3.4
CLEANING AND PROTECTION
A.
Remove left over material and debris from Work area. Use necessary means to protect film before, during, and after installation.
B.
Touch-up, repair or replace damaged products before Substantial Completion.
C.
After application of film, wash film using common window cleaning solutions, including ammonia solutions, 30 days after application. Do not use abrasive type cleaning agents and bristle brushes to avoid scratching film. Use synthetic sponges or soft cloths.
