As an industry leader in both adhesive and film manufacturing, 3M combines these technologies to provide state of the art Safety and Security Window Films to residential, commercial, and government sectors. 3M Safety and Security Window films help provide an added measure of protection for a variety of purposes including safety glazing applications, blast mitigation, building envelope protection, to help deter forced entry, and fragment retention for spontaneous glass breakage and seismic events. 3M Safety and Security films provide up to 99% protection against the sun's destructive ultraviolet rays, helping to protect valuable furnishings from fading. 3M Safety and Security Films are also available with sun control properties to help reduce glare, improve comfort, add privacy, and save on energy costs. 3M Safety and Security Window Films provide a practical, cost effective solution to help protect people, property, and provide continuity of operations that would otherwise be at a higher risk with conventional glass.
3M Impact Protection Systems enable a total systems solution with safety and security film. By anchoring the film to the frame, they help keep the broken glass secured in the window opening which helps provide and increased level of safety and security for helping to deter smash and grab, blast hazard mitigation, building envelope protection, seismic preparedness, and when film is applied to tempered glass.
3M Anti-Graffiti films help protect the glass surface against the most common methods of vandalism, such as glass etchants, gauging, abrasion, while reducing the ultraviolet light that normally would enter through the window by up to 99%. They have a durable abrasion resistant hardcoat on the outer surface and an adhesive that is designed to not leave residue on the glass when replacement of the film is needed due to vandalism.

          2.2CLEAR MICROLAYERED SAFETY AND SECURITY WINDOW FILM
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Micro-layered films refer to two or more dissimilar materials that are co-extruded into one film, as opposed to monolithic or monolayered films (single layer), or multi-layered films (typically 2- 3 layers) that are laminated together with an adhesive.
 
          A.3M Scotchshield Ultra S800 Safety and Security Window Film. Optically clear microlayered polyester film, nominally 8 mils (0.008 inch) thick, with a durable acrylic abrasion resistant coating over one surface and a pressure sensitive adhesive on the other. The film is clear and does not contain dyed polyester. The adhesive is pressure-activated, not water-activated, and forms a physical bond, not chemical bond, to the glass. The film is microlayered with both plastic and ductile polyester layers for tear resistance.
          1.Physical / Mechanical Performance Properties (nominal):
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** While performance testing of film on glass is preferred approach for evaluating a safety film product, film tensile and mechanical properties are frequently specified. Where specified, it is important to note that results depend on several factors, including film orientation and tested product construction (i.e, with or without film coatings). Bi-directionally balanced film properties are important for safety and security applications because product failure in any one direction could have catastrophic effects. Therefore a film's strength properties are governed by the lower of two values in either direction: machine direction (MD); or transverse direction (TD).
          2.Product Submittals shall meet the full testing and reporting requirements of ASTM D882, with data reported separately for both film directions, so the balance of film properties can be determined. Tested product construction should be noted; properties of the coated film are most relevant since this is the product form installed in the field. Singularly reported values for film mechanical properties (tensile & break strength, or elongation) do NOT meet reporting requirements of ASTM D882 and are not indicative of the balance of properties.

          PART 3EXECUTION
 
          3.1EXAMINATION
 
          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.
          2.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.
          3.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.
          4.Commencement of installation constitutes acceptance of conditions.
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete the next paragraph if 3M Impact Protection Adhesive is not required.
 
          B.Impact Protection Attachment Sealant Examination:
          1.If application of window film is/was the responsibility of another installer, notification in writing shall be made of deviations from manufacturer's recommended installation tolerances and conditions.
          2.Filmed glass surfaces receiving new attachment should first be examined to verify that they are free from defects and imperfections, and that the film edges extend sufficiently to the frame edges.
          3.Do not proceed with installation until film and frame 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.
          4.Conduct an adhesion test to the frame surface may be conducted by applying a 4 - 6 inch long bead, approximately 0.5 - 1 inch in width, masking one side of the frame surface underneath the strip with tape. Allow the Impact Protection Attachment Sealant to cure for 7 days and test adhesion by pulling up on the masked end and a 90 degree angle. If cohesive failure is observed (adhesive residue left behind on the frame surface), adhesion is acceptable; if adhesive failure is observed (clean peel from the frame), adhesion is unacceptable and product is not recommended.
 
          3.2PREPARATION
 
          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 Attachment Sealant film attachment systems.
 
          3.3INSTALLATION
 
          A.Film Installation:
          1.Install in accordance with manufacturer's instructions.
          2.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. Use new blade tips after 3 to 4 cuts.
          3.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.
          4.Apply film to glass and lightly spray film with slip solution.
          5.Squeegee from top to bottom of window. Spray slip solution to film and squeegee a second time.
          6.Bump film edge with lint-free towel wrapped around edge of a 5-way tool.
          7.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.
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete the next paragraph if 3M Impact Protection Attachment Sealant is not required.
 
          B.Impact Protection Attachment Sealant Installation:
          1.The film attachment system shall be applied according to the specifications of the Manufacturer by an Authorized Dealer/Applicator. Refer to 3M publication, 70-0709-0322-7, 3M Impact Protection Attachment Sealant Attachment System Installation Instructions.
          a.For blast hazard mitigation: minimum 1/2 inch bead overlap on both frame and film (excluding glazing stops or compression gaskets).
          b.For impact resistance and building envelope protection: minimum 3/8 inch bead overlap on both frame and film (excluding glazing stops or compression gaskets).
          2.To ensure a straight and consistent bead width is achieved, masking tape may be applied to film and frame surfaces prior to application.
          3.With prior approval of the building owner or property manager, existing compression gaskets may be partially removed or trimmed to allow for a thinner bead and stronger anchorage. If removing the gaskets, sections shall be trimmed approximately 3 inches in length and inserted with appropriate spacing along all sides of the window to help secure the glazing during application and curing of the Impact Protection Attachment Sealant.
          4.The Impact Protection Attachment Sealant shall be dispensed with a caulk gun with nozzle opening diameter sized to match the approximate size of the desired bead width.
          5.A plastic putty knife or other tool with a clean straight edge shall be used to trowel and smooth out the adhesive. The completed adhesive bead shall be relatively triangular in shape.
          6.Any masking tape used shall be carefully removed within 10 minutes after applying the wet glaze.
 
          3.4CLEANING 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.
