8mil creases - corner trick


Guest

Whenever you get a corner that's hard to lay down, all you have to do is flick your bic! Take a lighter over the spot and it lays down no prob! Not recommended for use around highly varnished frames or drapes......

Well, like I said not recommended for all situations but on most situations it's da b*mb. In all honesty I've been to scared to run into someones house with a torch :ohcrap , I don't know what it is! But it only takes a sec to do literally and is much easier than monkeying with it for a couple of minutes. And I am not sure on the long term repracussions as far as peeling away, but the customer always seems to call and tell you it's peeling if that corner is not layed down.

Yea the lighter thing works well both on safty and on solar, just run the flame over it for a quick second and then push it down with a 5way or hardcard and a towel wrapped around it. I mentioned it in a post a while back.

What is window tinting?
 Window tinting is the phrase usually used to describe the process of applying window film to car windows or flat glass in homes and buildings.

 Window tint or film is constructed of one or more layers of polyester film darked or dyed with a variety of components to achieve different results. It is coated with an adhesive and generally applied to the inner surface of windows to reduce heat, light and improve aesthetics. Thicker versions are used as a safety film to help prevent injuries and to slow intruders.

 Having glass tinted can generally reduce the need for air conditioning and can pay for itself over time in residential and commercial applications. Many modern window films are able to achieve a great amount of heat reduction without as much visible light reduction compared to the window films of the past.

 Many commonly used tools and techniques in use today are direct results of this site. Become a member and join us on the forum. It has grown to include members from all over the world, from consumers with questions, to new tinters, seasoned veterans, industry representatives and innovators.
