I showed this product to a paint tech and his thoughts were that it smelled like it had an activator chem in it to help the glue to kick faster without having an alcohol that would break down the glue.
About 20yrs ago I would put 1/2 a cap full in my flat glass solution to lock the edges faster and stop water running on emulion windows. For automotive I recommend only using it as a surface prep.
About 30% for high tack or on questionable surfaces where the paint might lift.
Close to full strength if I'm laying something high tack out in the summer sun on hot metal.
It's also good for floating vinyl on glass. As well as stacking colors. It lets you reposition into the right place before tacking.
Allegedly you "can't" lay wrap film wet, but I've been doing cut vinyl graphics with wrap film and floating it down for almost 10yrs. Sometimes you only get one shot to get in in the right spot. (Picture laying a Shelby hood kit for a bodyshop on fresh/hot paint and it has to leave that afternoon) You have to let it tack up for a while before pulling the transfer tape and re-squeegee with a banana/monkey strip after.
No heating any of the vinyl until after the solution evaporates.

Cling is -new and fresh applied to a new reg sticker. Everything appears flat when applied and cut -square- on a rotary type paper cutter. The center/top horizontals are not curling. Just the 2 sides.
I guess I'll remove it and lay something heavy and reapply after a few days but I'm only struggling with the 2 vert sides of the sticker
A thought came to me. While noting is ever -finite-, is there a shelf life to these sort of things ?
And if there was a shelf life, I presume it would be somewhat obvious
The static cling is 8 1/2 sheets in a box stored in my file cabinet....
It seems fiat. I applied new reg sticker, cut on roto trimmer, cleaned car glass and then -peeled off the white cap sheet of the static cling- (I may be using cap sheet terminology wrong, not in the trades) and stuck directly to the WS
Off to do a baseline test this weekend. Cut new cling and just stick it on the WS and see if it continues to lay flat
