Has anyone applied this before? I have used a 8x12 sample, and it seems very hard to squeege all the water out. I have a bid to do at a church and they have 14 windows they would like this on.....any tricks to this?

Try asking the manufacturer what they recommend. They could tell you how much slip solution to use and what to expect as far as squeegee technique and drying times.

Please post pics when you get the job done. I'm very interested in that product.

I just stuck 25 windows with this. All I used was X100 and a little joy. Use a soft cloth, not a towel on your squeege. Check for water with a flash light from the backside (it was raining, so the sun was not helping me). I didn't have any problems with it stretching, but I was moving very slow.

Put some on my bathroom windows with an auto blue max squeegee and hard carded as usual. :lol

Didn't seem that big a deal. :thumb

Used light (film-on) slip solution. :hmmm
