Sun protection film for mounting on plastic surfaces / plastic glazing
(such as Plexiglas, acrylic glass, Makrolon, Lexan or multi-skin sheets)
This sun protection film for outdoor installation is a new product especially developed for plastic surfaces with a high heat reduction. It is able to follow the temperature induced expansion of plastic surfaces and will not crack as a conventional solar control film would. Its semi-permanent adhesive, allows the surface to outgas, making it easy to uninstall or replace after many years.
Advantages of this sun protection film for plastic windows
- strong sun protection
- adequate light transmission
- very high total solar energy rejection of 84 % for exterior installation
- very high UV protection of 99
This reduces the heating of the rooms, the room climate becomes more pleasant and the fading of furniture and carpets is reduced. Even with open roofings, this sun protection film leads to a noticeable reduction in heat.
This film is used, for example, for terrace roofing, conservatories or in business premises and production facilities with polycarbonate glazing. The scratch-resistant surface of the sun protection film makes it easy to clean with standard glass cleaners. It is dirt-repellent and easy to clean.
If this sun protection film for plastic surfaces is removed, the film adhesive may remain on the surface, depending on how long it is left on the surface. The adhesive can form a firm bond with the plastic over time. If you want to remove it, the plastic surface may be damaged.
In rare cases, bubbles may form between the film and the plastic surface. Information on this can be found in the product data.
Included in deliverytransfer concentrate, art. no. 020010 additionally. It makes the installation easier and leads to a better result. Alternatively, you can also use a pH-neutral cleaner. This must be pH-neutral to prevent streaks from forming together with the film adhesive!
Any offcuts are not included in the scope of delivery.
Note and guarantee exclusion
In rare cases, bubbles may form between the film and the plastic surface after installation. The reason for this is the "outgassing" of the usually new plastic surface. Unfortunately, this cannot be detected in advance and the time until the possible formation of bubbles cannot be predicted. The risk therefore lies with the customer and any warranty by us is excluded.
The manufacturer grants a guarantee of 3 years on the sun protection film for plastic surfaces when installed vertically and on sloped glazing (roof windows) from a roof slope of 25°. The edges of the film must be sealed all around. This guarantee refers to flaking, yellowing and demetallisation of the film.
Depending on various factors, the durability of the films is up to 5 years in Central Europe. In the case of sloped glazing such as skylights with a roof slope of 25° or more, this durability is reduced accordingly due to the stronger solar radiation and the higher exposure to environmental influences.
This information only applies to films sealed on the outside in the area of external installation.

Can I get a free foil sample?
Of course, please click on this link to access the corresponding order form. You are welcome to add to the list of items if you wish. There are no costs for you!
Will you also cut the film for me?
We cut each film to the exact millimetre according to the dimensions you enter. The cutting is free of charge. You can find detailed instructions on how to measure your panes here.
Alternatively, you can also cut your film by hand with a cutter knife. However, this requires a little manual skill, so you are usually better off using our free service.
Can you also cut a round blank or other geometry?
In general, almost all 2D shapes can be produced. Many geometries (e.g. triangles, trapezoids, circles) can be ordered directly via the online shop. To do so, please click on the orange rectangle to the right of the article image. You can then choose between many different shapes.
For shapes that are not specified, please send us a small sketch (photo) in which you specify the side lengths, radii or angles. Please contact us for this purpose.
Does the film also adhere to surfaces other than glass?
The window film adheres to all surfaces that are approximately as smooth as glass. When applying the film to plastic, please bear in mind that the adhesive may bond with the plastic, making it impossible to remove the film cleanly later.
How can I clean my window pane with the film in place?
You can keep your window pane clean as usual. The film should not be rubbed with sharp-edged objects (e.g. a brush).
You can find more information in our guide General care instructions for window films.
Can the film be removed without leaving any residue?
All window films can be removed without leaving any residue and without damaging the glass surface!
Below you will find detailed instructions on how to remove old window films.
Can you also print on films?
Unfortunately, we do not currently offer foil printing and do not have any partner companies with whom we can realise foil printing.
Assembly instructions for Sun protection films for plastic surfaces (self-adhesive)
You will need the following items
- Plastic bottle with hand sprayer, adhesive tape, paper towels (not included)
- Transfer concentrate (not included)
- Glass cleaner (not included) or commercially available glass cleaner
- Installation squeegee and Glass scraper blade (included free of charge in the delivery).
- Two people should carry out the installation!
- Do not install any film at temperatures on the installation side below +6° C.
- Fill the spray bottle with 0.5 litres of water and add the transfer concentrate (30 ml) (enough for approx. 6 to 7 m² of glass surface).
Thoroughly clean the glass with commercial or our glass cleaner!
Remove all sticky particles (e.g. paint or fly dirt) preferably with the Glass scraper blade. No dirt residues should remain on the glass!
- The sandblasting foil consists of the mostly white backing paper and the actual sandblasting foil.
Now place the sandblasting foil with the view side down on the glass pane or similar. You are now looking at the back of the film.
Then carefully and slowly peel off the backing paper at as shallow an angle as possible until it is about halfway along the entire length of the film. Cut the backing paper and stick it back onto the sandblasting film with a gap of about 2 cm to the remaining backing paper.
- Now hold the Sun protection film in place while the 2nd person
starting from the corner, and at the same time spray the adhesive side of the Sun protection film that is now exposed with the liquid.
Afterwards, the glass pane (surface to be pasted) must be sprayed with the liquid. Do not be sparing with the liquid, the film and pane should be well wet.
- Place the Sun protection film on the glass, the film should slide back and forth well, otherwise spray the glass again.
- Now spray the other side of the Sun protection film as well, this will make it easier for you to work with the mounting squeegee.
- Now press the liquid out evenly with the mounting squeegee from the centre to the right and to the left. Make sure that there is no residual water left under the film! Repeat this procedure several times to remove even invisible water residues. When doing this, wrap the supplied squeegee with a paper towel to avoid any scratches.
- Carefully wipe the edges and the foil with a soft cloth. If necessary, press the edges again with the mounting squeegee.
- Now let the Sun protection film dry for three days without touching it.
- Wait two weeks before cleaning the film for the first time and never use hard objects (brush or blade) to clean it. Commercially available glass cleaners can be used.
FAQ`s about the installation
Can I carry out the film installation alone?
For larger pieces, it is recommended that two people carry out the installation. This makes it easier to handle the film and place it on the pane.
How can I avoid dust inclusions under the adhesive back side?
In addition, do not lay the Sun protection film after peeling off (covers the adhesive side for transport) on the floor to get it wet. Rather, pull a table nearby to spray the film on. On the floor you will always stir up very fine dust particles, which will then settle on the adhesive side facing upwards. These dust particles can later show up on the pane under the Sun protection film, which is something to avoid.
Can I apply the Sun protection film without transfer concentrate?
We strongly advise against the use of water diluted with detergent. This can lead to streaking due to a reaction with the film adhesive.
Does the film have to be applied perfectly to the glass at the first attempt?
After mounting, small bubbles formed the next day
In any case, you should wait this time and do nothing. In most cases, the blisters disappear all by themselves!
How easy is it to remove the film?
It is possible that residues of the film adhesive remain in some places. These can be soaked with our adhesive remover or acetone and then removed again with a glass scraper or ceramic field scraper. You will find detailed instructions on how to remove window films on our homepage in the FAQ`s.
