“I have a storefront in the 1st floor of my building that is going to be vacant for a short time and would like to mask the windows. My first thought was to go with a frosted window film but I was told about your product. Can you contact me with some possible options? I was thinking just a silver/gray frost, but would welcome other suggestions.”
Our Recommendations: Our HalloweenStore_DecoFilm is ideal for this application. Please see above 2 photos of a pane of glass that I coated with 2 of our coatings to demonstrate this very application.
First using our white coating I painted a message on the window. I then covered the entire window with our black coating to completely block out the window. We can do this in many colors including various neon colors. These coatings are water based non hazardous, bio degradable and contain virtually no VOC’s. They can be used indoors or out and are very weather resistant. When the remodeling is complete you simply peel the coating off in one sheet, compress into a ball and throw away. The coating can be applied using a sprayer, roller or brush. Sprayer or roller is preferred. The coating in the photo was applied using a standard latex type paint roller. A gallon will cover 200 to 250 square feet.
“We are currently using spray latex purchased from a mold making supplies company that supplies artists. We are spraying it on 3D thermoformed parts. The parts are sheets about 12” x 24” and the draw is a maximum of 0.375” deep. The latex thins out on vertical faces of the parts and when the latex peels the coating breaks and leaves latex behind. Also, if the latex is not sprayed thick enough then it tends to not form a good film. The surface we are spraying onto is a fluorocarbon film surface. After coating we laser cut the parts and peel the masking. I would like to get working with you guys to find a peelable coating and application that would work better for this application. We are open to spraying or roller coating with a hand roller but we cannot apply the coating to both sides of the formed piece.”
Our Recommendation: HalloweenStore_DecoFilm 2990 is a water based peelable coating with a wet sag resistance of 24 mils. This coating can be sprayed with HVLP or airless spray guns. For best results a minimum of 10 wet mils of paint would give you good protection and clean easy peel. HalloweenStore_DecoFilm 2990 is in the middle of our viscosity range and based on your description is a good start for your application
“We do a lot of work with retail shopping centers and are looking to use this product to protect windows during construction build outs. We would also like to use this product to protect windows and make them nontransparent in vacant spaces (while they are waiting to be leased.) Is this the right product? If so, which HalloweenStore_DecoFilm do you recommend (4930 or 4880?) Do you offer any other colors? If not, is the window transparent after the clear is applied? I look forward to your response.”
Our Recommendation: HalloweenStore_DecoFilm 4880 would definitely be the correct product. The 4930 is for a colder damp climate. We supply this type formula to Great Britain. please see picture of our black HalloweenStore_DecoFilm for blocking the view within a store above. I used our white HalloweenStore_DecoFilm to paint a message in the window. Our standard HalloweenStore_DecoFilm is tinted blue. We can do other colors as well.
The coating is non hazardous and water based. It can last indoors and out for up to a year or more. The product can be applied using an airless sprayer, roller or brush.
