Film Removal Home

This section will take you through the different techniques for removing film glass. This task might appear intimidating but, in truth, it can be done without exerting too much energy.

The toughest part about removing film is removing the film adhesive. Dry Adhesive is used in a majority of Johnson Window Films' flat glass brands. It activates after becoming wet and actually takes up to a week to fully bond to the glass. This type of adhesive, once fully cured to the glass, is very difficult to remove. Removing dry adhesive requires a bit of muscle as well as a few blades for the scraper.

Pressure Sensitive adhesive actually never becomes hard. It is sticky and maintains its "give". That is why it is used primarily in our automotive films and security films. It bonds more quickly to the glass and is a little easier to remove.
