Product Description For Exterior Sunscreen For Windows
(as of Feb 22,2024 08:45:21 UTC – Details)
Exterior Natural 40 Window Film is an exterior film that goes on the outside of the window, unlike traditional films that are applied on the interior side of the window. These films are made of high quality materials that are designed to weather the elements. The Exterior Natural 40 Window Film works to block heat before it even passes through your windows. This will keep your home much cooler as it reduces the heat stored within the window. The Exterior Natural 40 window film utilizes its medium visible light transmittance (40% = Medium) to reduce glare. Since the film is exposed to the conditions outside, you can seal the edges of the installed film with silicone window caulking after the film has fully dried. This is necessary to increase durability of the film for the outside environment.
Here are some additional comments about our Exterior Natural 40 Window Film:
KEEP IT COOL & REDUCE ENERGY COSTS
PROTECT YOUR INTERIOR PROPERTIES
Not only does the EXNA40 exterior window film provide great daytime privacy, but its dark nature also gives it excellent heat rejecting properties that keeps your interior nice and cool. The number “40” in its name refers to the dark silver tint that gives the window that dark, low reflective look and also blocks hot solar rays from entering through your window.
It rejects about 99% of the UV rays, helping to reduce fading on your precious furniture or other UV sensitive belongings, and about 56% of the total solar energy coming in from the sun. By maintaining your room at a cool, moderate temperature, you can promote a more environmentally aware lifestyle by reducing energy usage and help create a greener world.

Because of the dark, black tint that was described above, the film provides an excellent method of promoting daytime privacy. Even though the film allows some light to pass through, the darkness makes it difficult for unwanted eyes to see what’s happening inside. An important note, however, is that the effect of any reflective, privacy enhancing window film will greatly depend on the lighting conditions because the side exposed to more light will become more reflective and harder to see through. This is why the privacy-effect works so well during the day, and almost not at all at night since the sun usually makes the exterior of your building much, much brighter than the interior. However, coupled with the use of curtains or blinds for night-time privacy, the darkness this film provides is perfect for windows that face directly into the sun and are exposed to extreme sunlight!

To Start : Cleaning the window & Preparation
Installing window film on a cool day and not in direct sunlight. An adjacent work surface next to the window is recommended. It will be much easier to install film on smaller windows, so we suggest starting with the smallest windows first.
It is best to clean the window with a window scraper before any installation. A window scraper is a glass safe razor blade, usually with a handle that can scrape the glass of any contaminants without scratching the glass. Using the window scraper and installation solution all over the window will clean it of any caked-on dirt that wiping will not remove. You can use the installation solution to also clean the window as well as any non-ammonia-based cleaners.
It is recommended to clean the surrounding area of the glass, like the frame and seals before installation too. Using a no lint or low lint cloth will ensure the glass will be free of any dust.
The installation solution can be made by adding 8-10 drops of liquid soap for every 16 oz of water.
Separating the Backing Liner from the Film
All window films have 2 parts. The film and the liner. Find a corner of the film to separate the liner and film. The liner will always be clear and thinner than the film.
The best way to separate the film and liner is to use two pieces of tape. Attach one piece of tape to a corner of the film, half of the tape on the film and the other half hang past the corner. Then use another piece of tape of the other side of the same corner. Both tapes should be placed slightly offset. Hold onto the two over hanging tapes and press them together to grab the film’s corner tip firmly. Then slowly separate the two pieces of tape; the liner and film should separate.
As you gently pull the liner away, spray the exposed adhesive side with the installation solution. This will make the film heavier and easier to manage, it will also prevent the film from sticking to itself or to any thing else.
When the liner is all pulled away, the film’s exposed adhesives side should be fully wet.
Handling the Sticky Window Film
Spray, spray, and spray more! You need to spray a lot and make the film fully wet and almost flooded on the film and the window glass surface. Please remember that the fully wet window and the film is one of the key factors for your successful installation without bubbles.
To handle the film easier when separating the film and the liner, spraying soapy solution liberally on the exposed adhesive side as you pull off the liner will prevent the film from being sticky. This will prevent the adhesive side from sticking to itself, eliminating potential wrinkles and bubbles during or after installation.
Also, the soapy solution should be sprayed on the top of the film prior to the squeegeeing. This will help your squeegee glide across the film
Can I remove this film later?
Your installed window film can be removed even after years. You need to soften the cured or hardened adhesive of the film to remove the film. A fabric steamer or a heat gun can heat up the film and loosen the adhesive.
Using a hairdryer can heat up the film to loosen the adhesive, but it will take longer. If there is remaining adhesive residue, it can be easily removed with soapy water and a razor blade.
Removing the static cling film is very easy and simple. The static cling film doesn’t have the adhesive and can be removed by hand.
FILM APPLIED ON THE OUTSIDE. It rejects heat by reflecting a lot of the solar energy out before it can even pass through the window. Sealing the edges with silicone window caulking is recommended.
STRONG ADHESIVES to last many years. For easier installation, remember to use A LOT of soap/water mixture to soak both the adhesive side and window.
HIGH QUALITY PERFORMANCE films that are sensitive by nature. Please remember to take caution when handling the film as the slightest fold will create a permanent wrinkle.
