LEXEN - Window Tint Film Installation Instruction (2019)

Tools:

Squeegee, Knife, Johnson baby shampoo or Dish soap, Spray bottle, and Paper Towel, Heat gun if needed, and Professional tint squeegee tools kit (You can find it on eBay or Amazon)

Preparation:

Create your own wetting solution (soapy water) by adding a few drops of Johnson Baby Shampoo or dish soap into a spray bottle filled with water.

Start with a CLEAN car, and a relatively dust and wind free environment.

 

***The tint is applied on the INSIDE of the windows, you may work the window film on the outside, but the window film is installed on the INSIDE. ***

 

Steps:

  1. Place the film onto the glass. Trim film to exact size with razor knife.
  2. Heat shrink the window film with heat gun if you have curved windows.

     (Please refer to our YT channel for a how-to video)

  1. Remove the release liner and spray the now exposed adhesive surface thoroughly with the soapy water and apply a generous amount of soapy water to the glass

*** The soapy water prevents the film from sticking to the surface immediately, thereby allowing you more time in which to properly position the film. ***

  1. Place the wet film onto the inside of the clean glass surface.
  2. Wet the face of the film to be squeegeed. Use squeegee and squeegee from the center out towards the edges to remove any air bubbles and water.
  3. Double check that the film is flat and smooth with no remaining air bubbles and water.
  4. Use the paper towels for cleaning the glass surface and for the absorption of excess wetting solution around the edges.

REMEMBER: Your new film takes 1 to 3 weeks to fully cure. You may see some haze or condensation during this period and please allow film to cure for 2 to 3 days before lowering windows.

Precautions:

The surface to which the film will be applied should be very clean, free of dirt and dust particles.

Make sure there are no dry spots on the film prior to placing it onto the glass.

Take care that when removing the release liner, the film does not roll over onto itself.

It will stick together and is difficult to pull apart. Wet the film as the liner is removed.

 

Tip to remove liner:

To separate the liner from the film, take two pieces of scotch tape and stick them opposite of each other at one corner, then pull these two pieces of tape apart and the liner will separate from the film.
