In order to make the car more beautiful, many car owners will choose to change the color of the car body. In addition to traditional body painting, there is now a wave of color change film on the market. However, the color change film for the whole vehicle is expensive, and it seems difficult for most car owners to accept it. So many car owners have applied the film by themselves, but how can a novice with no skill apply the film?

When the layman watched the technicians sticking the heat insulation film, they thought it was very simple. Just tear off the release film, spray some water, stick it and cut a few knives to scrape the water out. In fact, the filming technology is very profound.

1. Water: More than 70% of the construction workers directly use tap water that has not been filtered or precipitated. This is incorrect, because there are many impurities or sand in the tap water pipes, and sometimes the water quality will be affected when the water pipes are replaced. Therefore, The water used in the sticker must be filtered or precipitated.

2. Dust: There are no airtight rooms in many filming places. Some people put stickers on the side of the road. Large and small cars roar and arouse a lot of dust. Sometimes there is dust when the wind speed is high. Therefore, if there is no airtight room filming, all doors must be closed before posting.

3. Regarding work clothes, a large amount of static electricity will be generated when the transparent part of the heat insulation film is removed. If the clothes you have empty when applying the film are woolen or the clothes with cotton dust are not suitable for wearing the film, because the clothes on the Impurities such as cotton or wool will be electrostatically attracted to the membrane.

4. The paper is not clean on both sides. The cut film we cut is often placed on the car floor mat or on the car roof or hood, which causes the inside and outside to be unclean. Also due to static electricity, it is attached to the outside when the paper is removed. Dust will also be absorbed on the paper glue. Therefore, when the transparent paper is not opened, some water must be sprayed on both sides of the film to effectively prevent sand particles from entering the film.

5. Chair covers or objects: The same is due to static electricity. Some chair covers are made of rabbit hair, fox hair or cotton wool as raw materials. The instrument panel and seats should be covered with leather or non-woven towels. Also, do not take the paper too much. Get close to the object to prevent the dust on the object from being attracted by static electricity.

6. Someone opens and closes the door when disassembling the paper: After the glass is washed or when disassembling the paper, do not allow people outside the car to open or close the door. Sometimes closing the door forcefully will cause the air to flow quickly and bring in a lot of dust or sand.

7. The air-conditioning wind speed is too high: summer is the peak season for sticking the heat insulation film. The temperature in the car is very high when the sun is in the sun. It is inevitable to open the air-conditioning film in the car, but the air-conditioning wind speed should be adjusted to the lowest when the paper is opened. After removing the paper, put on the glass before turning on high wind speed to prevent dust from flying around in the car.

8. The bottom of the sprinkler is not clean: During construction, most sprinklers are placed on the ground, mats or chair covers, and the bottom is often not clean. When you take apart the paper, if the sprinkler shakes above the paper, the sand at the bottom Particles or impurities will fall on the paper, so when we use a water sprayer, we should wipe the bottom first.

9. Hand pinching part: After disassembling the transparent paper, you must pinch the heat insulation film with two fingers. There will be fingerprints and sand particles in the pinched part.

10. The method of wiping is incorrect: there is a fixed method when wiping and cleaning the glass. If the wiping or wiping is intermittent or incomplete, it will leave sand or impurities on the glass.

11. Flushing: The edges of the car window or the parts that cannot be completely reached by the wiper at the bottom must be flushed. If you use a towel to clean it, you must use a special non-woven towel to avoid dust. Old cars or triangular windows should be flushed, but the top of the car should not be flushed to prevent debris from sliding under the water.

12. Pay attention to the items in the car: After removing the paper and spraying water to apply stickers on the glass, sometimes the film will get on the dashboard, steering wheel, rearview mirror, seat cover, glass frame or top seam audio, etc. There will be debris. Therefore, the items in the car should be carefully cleaned before applying the film.

13. Do not move the position a lot: After removing the paper and spraying water to paste the glass, try to be as accurate as possible. If the position is found to be incorrect after pasting it, moving it will stain the objects around the glass or the sand in the plasticine tank.

14. Wiping: The first action after just pasting is wiping. The water can be driven from top to bottom, from right to left, or from left to right, but it is not allowed to drive a large amount of water from bottom to top, nor at one time. The water is completely driven out to prevent the backflow of water from driving the sand down.

15. Don’t open it again: The paper has been pasted on the glass and try not to lift it. The more you lift it, the more impurities such as sand and rubber particles.

16. The glass is not clean: some cars are dismantled and replaced with new ones. The residual glue should be thoroughly cleaned. Any labels and debris should be cleaned up. Otherwise, no matter how good the technology is, it will not help.

17. The water is not pushed dry: The last action of the sticker is to wipe. Generally, it is impossible to wipe out most of the water. If the evaporation is slow in winter, it will not dry for a month. In summer, a large amount of water will evaporate quickly and leave bubbles. Use a harder squeegee to wipe the water hard in sequence, taking care not to miss it.

18. Air brings water into the sand: There are many invisible sand and dust hidden in the mud trough and rubber around the old car. After the paper is closed, some of the glass has a large curvature, which will form a water gap between the glass and the film. At this time, if the water is quickly scraped out, the sand will continue to be drawn into the paper.

19. Car windows: Old cars rarely stick to perfection, especially when the adhesive is loose, there will be more sand. At this time, cover the stereo with newspaper or tablecloth first, scrape all around the sticking area, and rinse with water Cleaning can prevent most sand particles, and the wiping method should be correct.

20. The glass frame of the car window is wool frame: The inner glass frame of Passat, Polo and other cars is made of wool. When the film is opened, the film is slightly larger than the inner frame, or adhesive tape is used for edge sealing, and the front and rear gears can also be the same.
