Anti-fog film is coated special hydrophilic polymer that has
scratch resistance property. Normally Commercial freezer door,
Automotive window films, Bathroom mirror, sports & military
visor, architectural glazing, with features of Energy Saving for
freezer,Anti-fog property,Scratch resistance property,Excellent
chemical resistance for Acetone, MEK, Alcohol, Toluene)
|Anti Fog Property||Pass|
|Scratch durability (% Haze)||7.6|
Clarity: Anti-fog film is exceptionally clear. While the specification
limit is 1% haze, actual values are usually less than 0.5%. Often
the coating will fill in fine scratches and actually improve the
clarity of molded parts.
Scratch Resistance: Rubbing lightly with #0000 steel wool will leave only a few light
scratches on the Anti-fog surface. Occasionally, fine scratches
will appear but will heal when warmed slightly or when moistened,
or after simply
standing at room temperature for 15 min. to 30 min.
Chemical Resistance: Anti-FOG films are unaffected by brief exposure to:The coating
also protects sensitive plastics from solvent attack, but it may be
permeated by solvent vapors over time. Acetone, MEK, gylcol esters
and toluene will damage Anti-FOG film if exposure time is extended.
Weathering: The Anti-FOG coating does not crack, peel or discolor from
exposure to sunlight. The coating does not, however absorb enough
UV light to protect sensitive plastics from yellowing.
Maintenance and Care: Anti-FOG coatings will usually outlast the coated item. Resistance
to cleaning solvents and detergents is excellent. While grease and
oils will contaminate the surface and impair anti-fog
effectiveness, these can be removed with a strong grease cutting
detergent such as Top Job® or Formula 409®. Consult the Material
Safety Data Sheet for further handling precautions.

Installation instructions for Anti-FOG films
A representative installation of this material may be had using a
dilute soap solution as noted below. However, please note that the
adhesive is designed to be used DRY with a pressure roll laminating
Film should be cut to shape prior to installation. Do not try to
laminate over bevels. Leave 1/8” (3mm) between film edge and
frame.Glass or plastic surface must be clean, smooth, and dust
free. A razor blade will remove encrusted foreign matter. Use
squeegee and water to remove lint in final cleaning.
1. Spray glass or plastic surface with wetting agent (dilute soap
solution). Be sure surface is wet when film is applied to glass.
2. Then separate and discard release liner (the thinner film) To
separate, it may be helpful to apply cellophane tape to both sides
at a single corner and pull apart. Adhesive may appear cloudy when
exposed. Clarity will return when installed.To remove the release
liner from a very large piece of film, place on a wetted surface,
with anti-fog side down. This will allow you to strip the release
liner without creasing the film. The assistance of a second person
may be helpful.
3. Thoroughly wet exposed adhesive with wetting agent.
4. Apply film to wet glass or plastic.
5. Before using squeegee, spray film surface with wetting agent.
This will permit squeegee to slide easier and function
better. Re-wet as necessary.
Use squeegee. Apply firm pressure from center of film outwards to
edge. Be sure all water pockets are removed from beneath film.Allow
film to dry overnight or longer. If milky blotches are seen, film
is not dry. Allow to dry further. Do not try to trim film until
thoroughly dry. Then use new, sharp razor blade. Film surface may
be cleaned with glass cleaner and wet paper towel whenever
necessary. Never use abrasive window cleansers or pads.
For bathroom mirror installations – every three months or so clean
with strong kitchen degreaser (Mr. Clean, Fantastik,Formula 409) to
remove build-up of household oils that settle on film surface.To
remove film, slide a razor blade under one corner and peel slowly.
If traces of adhesive remain, remove with warm water or rubbing
