  I have done a fair amount of it..Is is a test of my patience every time. if you are installing on butt glazed glass, make 1000% certain the caulking is completely gone, no residue left behind at all. Otherwise it will curl and finger forever. Very little slip is needed and bump the edges with a dry towel multiple times. I like using a blue max in a 8' channel with a extension in the end like I'm doing 8mil. ....that film simply sucks.

I highly recommend not doing the job...took on it 3x and didn’t learn my lesson...it will be the worst day of your life I promise you. The film is all scratched up when you receive it and you will scratch it more when installing it. There no scratch coat so from there you will get bitch at...It was my worst nightmare but had no choice to do it for 6k sq fr of dual cloud...lost on it but won on the dual cloud...next time I will pass on the job...I have talk to everyone that done it and no one ...NO ONE AND I MEAN NO ONE HAD ANYTHING GOOD TO SAY OR ANY TIPS AND TRICK ON THE FILM.

My experience with the film goes back close to two years and it did not go great.  With some replacements eventually the customer accepted the work, (an obscuring film on the outside of the glass helped covering up some of the Casper problems) but the way it looked, if it were any other film I'd have torn down and redone.

 

Some people seem to have kinda, sorta figured it out.  Foxy had some posts about it.  I have seen some installations in the field by others which looked not too bad.  Pics from Midtown Houston look good.

 

Two things we did I found out later were not good to do with Casper.

 

Normally will mist the liner before removing it to cut down static electricity and stop dust from being attracted to film when removing the liner -  this is not good to do with Casper.

 

Sometimes after first placing film on glass will lightly bump film into alignment - this is not good to do with Casper.

 

Good luck

Guest No really its Fox Hat

Pay attention to the film being Triacetate which absorbs water. Will cause issues if you are not wearing your patient panties.

 

That shop with the now missing YT  vid used the squeegee on a liner trick to reduce scratching .

 

I just don't understand why its manufacturer has not caught on to laminating a proper clear workable layer so an installer doesn't have to play games.
