Patented window films that improve comfort and cut energy costs by reducing
heat loss and solar heat gain through windows. The films can improve
aesthetics by providing uniformity to the exterior appearance of windows, while
not impairing the view. Other benefits include reduction of UV damage to interior
materials, reduced temperature imbalances between sunny and shady ares of
the building, improve glass safety and increased daytime privacy.

3M™ SCOTCHTINT™ Sun Control Films
These products normally have a thin adhesive for optimum clarity, and a micro layer of
metal evenly coated on the film to reflect the infrared solar radiation. Their main task is to
help reduce the amount of heat coming into a building through the windows. They help
reduce glare, UV damage, can improve aesthetics of the building, and offer different
levels of privacy depending on the product chosen.
3M™ SCOTCHTINT™ Plus All Season Films
Very similar to the sun control films in rejecting incoming solar radiation, but they have a
unique patented construction that allows them to reflect man-made heat back into the
room. Helps reduce the amount of heat loss through windows in areas that require
heating systems. These products work for you 24 hours a day in cooler climates and on
all sides of the building, even the sides that do not get incoming solar radiation.
3M™ SCOTCHSHIELD™ Ultra Safety and Security Films
A patented micro-layer film with superior strength adhesive system. These products
are designed to hold broken glass onto the film thus reducing the possibility of injury or
damage caused by flying glass shards. Because of the unique tear resistant properties
of our micro-layer film it also provides security and impact resistance for TERRORIST
BOMBINGS, HURRICANES, SMASH & GRAB CRIMES, EARTHQUAKES,
INDUSTRIAL EXPLOSIONS. Some versions of these films also provide
sun control features.
3M™ SCOTCHTINT™ Color Stable Auto Films
These products have an exciting new technology that protects the film from changing
color. These products also have an adhesive system designed to hold to curved
automobile glass. They also have features that allow the installers to smooth the film to
the glass with fewer wrinkles, bubbles or other problems, thus providing the car owner
with a high quality application. All products feature a distinctive color that compliments
the automobile color and provides a sleek appearance.

3M™ FASARA™ Interior Design Films
3M™ Fasara™ Interior Design Films will add a new dimension to your glass. Decorative
films are applied to the glass creating a beautiful etched-glass appearance not typically
found in window films. Light is dispersed softly, rendering a high-class, tranquil
atmosphere. We have premium Interior Design films suited for interior glass partitions or
inside surface of windows. Developed for the Asian market, the Fasara films offer the
opportunity to immerse oneself in the aesthetic serenity distinctive to the Japanese
culture, while still maintaining the outstanding quality provided by 3M technology.
3M™ SCOTCHGARD™ Anti-Graffiti Films
Graffiti artists are changing their techniques to create their “works of art.” In place of using
only spray paints and markers to deface glass and other smooth surfaces, vandals are
also using glass-etching solutions and tungsten carbide styluses for scratching and
defacing your property. Scotchgard™ will resist these and other types of graffiti while
protecting your property. Once applied the film will also provide protection from broken
glass by holding the glass together.

General Information
2. How do Scotchtint Plus All Season (LE) Films work? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .91
1. How do Scotchtint sun control films work?
Scotchtint sun control films are designed to help reduce the amount of solar heat
transmission through window glass by increasing the solar reflection (not necessarily
visible reflection) and solar absorption through the glass.
Typical colored or dyed films work primarily through increased absorption. The color
absorbs the solar energy at the glass, thus reducing the direct transmission into the
room. These films only offer marginal performance when compared to reflective films.
Reflective films are films that have been precision coated with metals. These metalized
films are designed to increase the solar energy reflection of the glass and some of the
absorption. Scotchtint reflective films range from moderate to excellent in solar
performance ( heat gain reduction).
General Information
All Scotchtint sun control films are made to be transparent and optically clear. The
ultraviolet protection in he adhesive system is there to protect the adhesive, the metals,
the polyester film, and the abrasion resistant coating from UV degradation. This UV
protection will also help protect what is behind the film (home and office furnishings), too.
Most Scotchtint window films are protected with our patented abrasion resistant coating
for long term durability and maintained appearance.
2. How do Scotchtint Plus All Season (LE) Films work?
Scotchtint Plus All Season films, or Low E films work much in the same way as the sun
control films except that they offer an increased performance against cold weather heat
loss. The patented constructions of these films enable the metal coating to reflect more of
the interior room heat back into the room where it is needed. This improves comfort by
reducing potential draft feelings near the window, and may also save on fuel costs,
especially in commercial buildings. The LE films are also protected with our abrasion
resistant coating for long term durability and maintained appearance.
3. Why do commercial customers have Scotchtint film applied to their buildings?
• Improved tenant comfort
• Lower heating and cooling operating costs
• Lower utility demand costs
• Utility rebates
• Improved aesthetics, uniform appearance
• Improved safety and security
• Extended A/C equipment life
• Valued alternative to adding more A/C equipment
Most often, our commercial customers will purchase Scotchtint window films for tenant
comfort and justify the purchase on energy cost savings.
3Scotchtint™/Scotchshield™ Window Film Manual
91
4. What is the typical energy pay back for Scotchtint window films?
Simple pay backs will vary depending upon the amount of sunlit glass exposure, the type
of film, the type of glass, cost of fuel, cost of application, and other variables. However,
we have seen pay backs often range in the 2-5 year period, with some reported to be
even less than 6 months.
5. How is Scotchtint window film applied?
Scotchtint films are professionally applied by skilled, well-trained authorized 3M Dealer
personnel. Almost all of our films are designed to be applied to the inside of your glass.
Next, the window glass is cleaned using simple cleaning solutions (often water and
ammonia) and razor blade scrapers. Then the film is sprayed with a slip solution
(detergent and water) for proper positioning, and applied to the window glass. Using
a professional grade squeegee and following proper techniques, the application is
completed by removing excess water, trimming the edges, and a final squeegee
technique to dry the edges.
6. How long does it take for Scotchtint window films to dry?
We suggest allowing thirty days for the film to fully dry and cure. During this curing
process, it is natural to have small water bubbles and/or a hazing milkiness appearance.
These will disappear as the film dries; depending upon the film type and weather
conditions, drying may take as much as 30 (or even 45) days, or as little as a few days.
Once dried, Scotchtint films will look great and perform for many years to come.
7. Can I install Scotchtint window film myself?
No, Scotchtint window films require professional application; our authorized 3M™
Scotchtint™ window film Dealer/Applicators are thoroughly trained and experienced in
performing high quality work. In this way, our customers will enjoy the benefits of
Scotchtint window films and have the comfort of the 3M Scotchtint warranty.
8. How do I clean my Scotchtint window film?
After thirty (30) days, you may clean Scotchtint films using normal household cleaning
solutions, including ammonia based products: e.g., Windex, and a soft, lint-free cloth or
towel. You may also use a squeegee to clean the films. Abrasive products which would
scratch or damage the film should not be used.
9. How long does Scotchtint window film last?
Scotchtint window films are made durable to last for many years; just how long may
depend upon the type of film applied, type of glass it is applied to and the particular
climate in which it is applied. Most applications last upwards of twelve to fifteen
(12-15) years and beyond, and several applications are still performing after fifteen (15)
years. All applications have a minimum warranty period of five (5) years (except exterior
applications which are two (2) years), and several films carry a ten (10) year commercial
warranty, and even a lifetime residential warranty.*
*(Lifetime for as long as original purchaser owns their home)
3Scotchtint™/Scotchshield™ Window Film Manual
92
General Information
The first step is to prepare the window area for the application; placing drop cloths on the
floor protecting and/or moving furniture where necessary.
10. How do I remove the old film from my windows?
Scotchtint window films are designed to bond the film to the window glass for many
years. Yet when it is time to remove the film, removal can be performed by following a
relatively simple process.
1. First, try to pull the film off by lifting and peeling the film from a corner. If removing
the film is difficult, spray the film with a solution of detergent (Dawn™, Joy™) and
water and cover with a plastic film (e.g., trash can liners work). Allow to soak for
several hours or overnight. Now, try Step 1 again.
2. Next, the adhesive residue left on the glass can be sprayed with a sudsy ammonia
and water solution and scraped with a four inch razor blade tool.
General Information
Unfortunately, other window films aren’t necessarily designed for removal in their future.
They can prove to be particularly difficult with removal, and may require more drastic
measures.
11. What is the warranty for Scotchtint window film?
Scotchtint window films are warranted to maintain their solar properties without bubbling,
peeling, cracking, or crazing. many of our films are warranted against discoloration, too.
(Those which do not use dyed polyesters). Should the product proved to be defective, 3M
and the authorized Scotchtint™ dealer will replace the film and provide the reapplication
labor free of charge.
In addition, the 3M Scotchtint window film warranty includes 60 months glass breakage
coverage for all qualified applications Should your glass break due to thermal shock, 3M
will replace the glass (maximum $500.00 per window) and the dealer will replace the film.
The length of the warranty is determined by film type and market (residential or
commercial).
12. Do Scotchtint window films cause glass to break?
No, Scotchtint window films do not cause glass to break. However, we do understand that
the application of Scotchtint will increase the temperature of your sunlit glass which will
increase the stress on the glass edges. The quality of those glass edges and several
other factors (external shading, interior shading, glass history, type of film, size/shape of
glass, indoor/outdoor temperature) all contribute to the potential risk of glass breakage.
3M’s thirty (30) years of experience with applying Scotchtint window films to different
types of glass enables us to make proper film/glass recommendations and minimize the
potential for glass breakage. In addition, we support these recommendations with our two
year glass breakage warranty against thermal shock fracture. Should the glass break
within two year of application, 3M will replace the glass (maximum $500.00) per window),
and the dealer will replace the film.
13. Do Scotchtint window films cause seal failure when applied to insulated
(double-pane,Thermopane™>) windows?
No, Scotchtint window films do not cause seal failure. We’ve been applying Scotchtint
films to insulated windows for over 25 years with several millions of square feet of film
applied to date.
3Scotchtint™/Scotchshield™ Window Film Manual
93
When recommended films are applied to the inside pane of an insulated glass unit, there
will be some absorption (except with clear safety films) of the sun’s energy, which will
increase the temperature of the glass pane. Some of this heat will transmit to the
airspace, slightly raising the airspace temperature. However, even a 20 F degree
increase (unusual for most films) will result in a less than 3% change in air pressure,
whereas properly made units are designed and tested to withstand 22% changes in air
pressure.
14. Will Scotchtint window film stop my furnishings from fading?
Nothing stops fading. Scotchtint films are designed to help reduce the major causes of
fading (Ultraviolet light, visible light, and solar heat), thus prolonging the life of your
furnishings, perhaps as much as two to five times.
Keep in mind the article(s) to be protected; if they have a typical life of five (5) years then
they may last ten (10) years to much longer depending on the performance of the film
selected. However, if the typical life is only 2-3 weeks, then the expectation should be
expressed in terms of months.
As a general rule of thumb, Ultraviolet (UV) is approximately 40% of the cause, visible
light is about 25%, and heat about 25%. The remaining 10% an be attributed to humidity,
pollutants, interior lights, dye anchorage, and more.
15. Does the Ultraviolet protection lose its effectiveness over time?
No, the Ultraviolet (UV) protection that we use in our proprietary adhesive system is
indefinite. It does not loose its effectiveness over time. In fact, we tested an actual glass
sample from The Dumbarton House, Washington,DC. This was a ten (10) year old
application and the Ultraviolet transmission still measures <1%!
16. How do Scotchshield Ultra Safety and Security Window films work?
Scotchshield Ultra Safety and Security window films are designed to make glass shatterresistant by hold the glass pieces together when broken.
Different from Scotchtint film, Scotchshield window films are made with thicker polyester
and a much thicker, more aggressive adhesive system. The Ultra films are unique in the
industry; they are built using a special micro-layered polyester technology which
increases the films’ tear resistance significantly. Pound for pound, the impact and tear
resistance of Scotchshield Ultra films outperform all other films of similar thickness.
17. Are Scotchshield (Ultra) films hurricane-proof? Bullet-proof? Burglar-proof?
No, Ultra films are not hurricane-proof, earthquake-proof, bullet-proof, bomb-proof, nor
burglar-proof. Again, they are designed to make the window glass more shatter-resistant.
In the event of a wind storm, these films may have significant safety and security value.
They can reduce the risk of injury from flying shards of broken glass, and possibly help
3Scotchtint™/Scotchshield™ Window Film Manual
94
General Information
Risk of seal failure is greatly determined by the quality of workmanship and the quality of
the materials that go into building the insulated glass units. The best guard against seal
failure is to purchase well-made units from reputable window manufacturers that have
solid experience and histories with insulated units.
prevent debris and water penetration through the window depending on the severity of
the storm (and the type of glass, framing system, size and velocity of objects, and more).
In an earthquake, these films can reduce the risk of serious injury from flying shards of
broken glass, and possible prevent glass from falling out of a home or building. Again,
much may depend upon the severity of the quake (and the type of glass, framing system,
and more, too).
Bullets: these films are not designed to stop bullets.
General Information
3M Scotchshield films were originally developed due to the international concerns and
needs for improved safety and security against terrorist acts of bombings. These films
can significantly reduce the risk of serious injury from flying shards of glass due to blasts,
however, much depends upon the severity of the blast and the proximity of the window
glass to the blast (and glass type, framing system, and more too).
Scotchshield ultra films are a low-profile, high performance measure of security in the
battle against ‘smash and grab’ crime. the tough, shatter-resistant qualities of the film
can hold the window glass together even if a brick (or similar object) were actually to pass
through the glass. The thief must now make a choice; continue to attack this window, try
another window, or move on. Time is short, and often they move on. However, if they are
determined to gain entry, they will get in. It is generally recommended that the property
have proper alarm systems in addition to Scotchshield ultra window film.
18. Will Scotchshield (ultra) film keep my glass from breaking?
This is difficult to answer with any degree of certainty because it is difficult to test for this.
Window glass varies in strength from piece to piece, and lot to lot. So, if a Scotchshield
protected window were impacted, yet, failed to break, it would be difficult to determine if
the glass alone, the film alone, or the film and glass together resisted the breakage.
When glass breaks, Scotchshield Ultra Film demonstrates it’s best performance!
19. Does 3M™ make Scotchtint™ and Scotchshield™ window films?
This may seem a very odd question, however, there are some competitive dealers that
wish to confuse our customers with the boldest and strangest of claims. So even odd and
obvious, it bears a response.
In the thirty (30) years since we developed this business, there have been many imitators
and impostors. However, there is only one company that has ever made Scotchtint™ and
Scotchshield™ window films, and that, of course, is 3M. We offer the genuine article and
back it with our genuine warranty.
20. How do I find the nearest authorized 3M™ Scotchtint™ window film dealer? Or,
is XYZ Tinting a 3M Scotchtint window film dealer?
The simplest way is to contact 3M directly for the name of the nearest 3M Distributor
1-800-480-1740. We would be able to provide you with an up-to-date listing of the
Authorized Scotchtint Dealer/Applicator in your area. They can confirm which businesses

PRIMARY GLASS PRODUCTS
FLOAT GLASS
The Float Glass Process accounts for over 90% of the flat glass presently produced in
the United States. In this process, molten glass is poured continuously from a furnace
onto a large bed of molten tin. The molten glass literally floats on the tin, spreading and
seeking a controlled level in the same manner as water poured onto a smooth, flat
surface.
In the controlled level seeking process, the molten glass is allowed to spread to width of
90” to 140”, depending upon the furnace size and glass thickness being produced. The
glass slowly solidifies as it travels over the molten tin. It then enters an annealing lehr
where the cooling process continues under controlled conditions. After several hundred
feet of travel through the lehr, it emerges as a continuous ribbon of glass at essentially
room temperature. The product is now flat, fire-finished, and with virtually parallel
surfaces.
CLEAR GLASS
Clear glass consists of silica sand with added alkaline salts such as lime potash and
soda. It is colorless and has a visible light transmittance ranging from 75% to 92%,
depending upon thickness. It constitutes the bulk of the flat glass that is used.
Tinted or Heat Absorbing Glass is made by adding various colorants to the normal, clear
glass batch to create a desired color. The four colors available by the Float Process and
Bronze, Gray, Green and Blue. Visible light transmittance will vary from 14% to 83%,
depending upon color and thickness. The color density is a function of thickness, and
increases as the thickness increases; visible light transmittance will decrease as
thickness increases.
Tinting reduces the solar transmittance of glass, has little effect upon solar reflectance,
hence increases solar absorption (heat). This explains why heat strengthening or
tempering is sometimes required for the thicker tinted glasses. Adding a metallic coating
also has the same effect on thinner glasses.
ASTM Specification C1036-85 separates Heat Absorbing and Tinted (light reducing)
glasses into separate categories based upon the maximum solar energy transmittance,
by glass thickness. Nevertheless, all tinted glass is heat absorbent, to one degree or
another. The Bronze, Gray, Green and Blue tints produced by the Float Process are all
classed as heat absorbent.
SHEET GLASS
The Sheet Glass Process accounts for a very small portion of U.S. production. Some
imported sheet glass will continue to be used, mainly in thickness of 1/8” and less.
PLATE GLASS
Plate Glass, manufactured by the grinding and polishing process, is no longer produced
in the United States, and words referring to it have been eliminated from the ASTM
Specification C103685. It has been replaced by the float glass process.

TINTED/HEAT ABSORBING GLASS
ROLLED GLASS
The Rolled Glass Process consists of pouring molten glass from a furnace, then feeding
it through rollers to produce the desired thickness. The glass ribbon then enters a lehr
where the cooling continues under controlled conditions.
There are three general types of rolled glass: figured/patterned, wired and
art/opalescent/cathedral glass.
FIGURED/PATTERNED GLASS
Figured/Patterned Glass is produced domestically by the continuous pour process in
thickness of 1/8” to 7/32”. A pattern etched on one or both of the rollers is reproduced on
the glass. Colors are available but extremely limited.
This type of glass is frequently called “obscure” or “decorative” glass. The pattern
diffuses detail of objects viewed through the glass, it does not obscure them. The degree
of diffusion achieved is a function of the pattern and whether the pattern is on one or both
sides.
Some patterns cannot be tempered for safety glazing use because of their depth.
WIRED GLASS
Wired Glass is produced on the same equipment as is Figured/Pattered glass. A welded
wire netting or parallel wires are introduced into the molten glass just before entering the
rolls, thus embedding the wire into the glass. Patterned wired glass has pattern on one or
both sides, and is sometimes called “rough” wired glass. Polished wire glass is produced
by grinding and polishing rolled wired glass blanks.

Tinted/Heat Absorbing wired glass is available only as an import. The heat absorbing
characteristic in conjunction with the normally poor cut edges and the wire netting can
cause a high rate of breakage from thermal stress, especially in non-vertical applications.
The major uses of wired glass is in institutional buildings and fire rated windows and
doors. All wires must be completely embedded in the glass. Some misalignment of the
wires may be noticeable, but this is not considered cause for rejection.
Wired glass cannot be tempered. From a windload standpoint, it is considered to be
approximately 50% as strong as annealed glass of the same thickness.
The edges of wired glass should be sealed from water to prevent rusting of the
embedded wires. This can be accomplished either by physically sealing the perimeter of
the lite with a sealant or by glazing in such a manner that the glazing rabbet will always
remain dry. The iron oxide molecule is larger than the iron molecule, so rusting of the
wires will cause glass breakage.
Most Building Codes require that wired glass meet NFPA 80 or be classified by U.L. as
fire resistant glazing when used in fire doors or windows.
Wire glass does not meet the requirements of CPSC 16CFR12301, hence cannot be
used as a safety glazing material in situations governed by that law.

ART/OPALESCENT/CATHEDRAL GLASS
Colored translucent glass, often called art glass, opalescent glass, cathedral glass or
stained glass, is also produced by the rolling process, but generally in small, batch type
operations. There are usually variegated colors within each sheet produced and no two
sheets will match for hue. Thickness will vary within a sheet as well as from sheet to
sheet. The maximum thickness produced is usually 1/8”.
When used as a glazing material, art glass should be glazed in the same manner as
tinted/heat absorbing glass. Art glass cannot be tempered.

FABRICATED GLASS PRODUCTS
INSULATING GLASS UNITS
Double insulating glass units consist of two panes of glass that enclose a hermetically
sealed air space. The panes are held apart by a spacer around the entire perimeter. The
spacer contains a moisture absorbent material called a desiccant that serves to keep the
enclosed air free of visible moisture. The rubber-like material that produces the hermetic
quality of the unit. Some manufacturers use non-curing sealant.
CERTIFICATION
The purpose of a certification program is to assure the user that the purchased product is
a faithful replica of one that has successfully passed certain prescribed tests. Participants
in a certification program must therefore,
a) submit their products to independent testing laboratories for the prescribed tests
b) agree to periodic, unannounced inspection of their regular production by an
independent agency to insure that actual production employs the same materials
and techniques as the tested specimen.
For insulating glass manufacturers there are two competing certification programs
available. One is conducted by Associated Laboratories, Inc. (ALI), which also conducts
a companion certification predominantly window and door manufacturers who fabricate
insulating glass for use in their own products. The second program, the Insulating Glass
Certification Council (IGCC), is an independent, non profit organization whose
management is vested in a Board of Governors made up equally of industry and public
interest members. All IGCC meetings are open to the public.

DISTORTION
The air (or gas) sealed within an insulating glass unit will respond to the Gas Laws of
Physics from the moment the unit is sealed. These laws govern the volume of gas as
related to various temperature and pressure conditions. As the sealed-in air is heated or
cooled, it expands or contracts. As the barometric pressure falls or rises, it likewise
expands or contracts. This causes the two panes to bow away from or toward each other.
They will be in virtually constant motion, hence seldom ever parallel (flat). When the glass
is in a reflecting mode, the objects reflected will appear distorted. There is no known
method by which precisely the same internal temperature and barometric pressure can
be simultaneously achieved for each and every insulating unit on a specific project and
still have the advantages of a sealed unit.
3Scotchtint™/Scotchshield™ Window Film Manual
108
RETROFIT
Several systems have been developed to convert single glass into insulating glass in
existing buildings. These systems involve cleaning the interior of the existing glass,
applying a desiccated spacer, a second (new) pane of glass and a perimeter sealant.
This generally works best on fixed (non-operable) windows. Optimum performance is
generally achieved by using reflective glass. Since every project is custom, warranties
can vary as can capabilities of insulator since this is field, rather than factory assembly.
WARRANTIES
Since no two insulating glass manufacturers use the same combination of components
and fabrication techniques, no two warranties are alike. Warranties usually require
adherence to certain installation procedures or techniques and exclude glass breakage
and the replacement glazing labor.
REFLECTIVE GLASS
Reflective glass is a clear or tinted glass coated with an extremely thin layer of metal or
metallic oxide. The coatings are thin by design; otherwise they could not transmit light.
Dependent upon the desired level to visible light transmission, the coating thickness is
generally in the range of .000001" to .000004".
a. Aesthetic Appeal: The various silver, copper, golden and earthtone reflective
coatings, when combined with clear, bronze, gray, green or blue tinted float glass,
allow the architect more flexibility in exterior design than with uncoated glass types
alone.
b. Energy Savings: Through its ability to reflect and absorb radiant solar heat,
reflective glass will substantially reduce interior solar heat gain. The added cost of
reflective glass will generally be offset by the size and cost reduction in the heating
and cooling system.
c. Occupant Comfort: Occupant comfort is improved when heat gain/loss differentials
between sunny and shaded elevations are substantially reduced. Interior
temperature variations are thus less and easier to control.
METHOD OF MANUFACTURE
There are three methods of coating deposition used in the manufacture of reflective
glass:
a. Wet Chemical Deposition: This is simply the precipitation of a metal from a
chemical solution by a reagent. The reaction occurs uniformly in a thin film on a
horizon piece of glass instead of in a laboratory test tube. The film thickness is
closely controlled to produce a desired level of light transmission. Coatings
produced by this method are generally fragile, and must be immediately protected,
usually by incorporating into an insulation glass or laminated glass product.
3Scotchtint™/Scotchshield™ Window Film Manual
109
Glass Types and
Thermal Stress
Installed in a building, reflective glass imparts a mirror-like appearance to the exterior
under most daytime conditions. It reduces heat gain and glare from the exterior and
allows visible light transmission to the interior. The major attributes of reflective glass are
b. Vacuum Deposition: This method involves a large vacuum chamber, vacuum
pressures, an inert gas atmosphere and electrical energy. The electrical energy
imparts a negative charge to the atoms of inert gas. The vacuum pressure, which
is on the order of .0006 to .000006 psi (compared to 14.7 psi, normal atmospheric
pressure), allows the negatively charged gas atoms to move freely at a high
velocity. When they strike a metal cathode, atoms of the metal are dislodged, also
at a high velocity. When they strike a metal cathode, atoms of the metal are
dislodged, also at a high velocity. The metal atoms then impinge upon the glass
substrate, creating the thin, metallic coating. Coating hardness and adhesion is a
function of the metal or alloy used and of the particle speed at impact. Many
vacuum deposited coated glasses can be used monolithically; or can be readily
shipped to another location to be fabricated into laminated or insulating glass
product.
Coated glasses produced by wet chemical or vacuum deposition methods cannot
be tempered or heat strengthened after coating since this would destroy the
coating. When used on a tinted glass substrate, tempering or heat strengthening
is required because the reflective coating increases the solar absorption. Some
coatings make clear glass so highly absorbent that the need for heat
strengthening or tempering should be investigated prior to specification and
purchase. A good rule of thumb is to investigate the need to heat treat any glass
where the absorption of radiant solar energy is greater than 50%.
Glass Types and
Thermal Stress
c. Pyrolitic Deposition: This process applies a metallic oxide coating to hot glass
( usually tinted). Pyrolitic deposition can be accomplished in a properly equipped
heat strengthening oven, or on a float glass line near the hot end of the lehr. The
metallic oxide is literally impregnated into the soft, cherry-red surface of the glass.
Annealed glass with a pyrolitic coating side to the weather ( to the outdoors). Since
the radiant solar energy is substantially rejected by the coating before it enters the
glass substrate, heat strengthening or tempering may not be required in many
instances where it would be required for other types of reflective glass.
PERFORMANCE
Another way to classify reflective coatings is by the degree to which they reject radiant
solar energy. The coatings created by wet chemical or vacuum deposition are usually of
higher performance (i.e., have lower shading coefficients) than the pyrolitically deposited
coatings of equivalent visible light transmission.
Wet chemical or vacuum deposited coatings have a lower shading coefficient when
installed on the second (2nd) surface (vs. the 3rd surface) of an insulating glass unit.
Pyrolitic coated glass has the lowest shading coefficient when installed on the 1st
surface.
SPECIFICATION
All reflective glasses of the same general color and light transmission are not alike in
reflectance level and other solar-optical properties, shading coefficient or U-value. The
typical performance specification should state the primary type of glass, desired color of
coating and maximum values of light transmission, shading coefficient and winter and
summer U-values. Any alternate bids for glass having different values should have a
companion alternate in the mechanical specifications if those glass values are sufficiently
3Scotchtint™/Scotchshield™ Window Film Manual
110
different as to affect the size (larger or smaller) of the mechanical system.
The specifications should include a provision for construction of a full size mock-up
incorporating the reflective glass and metal, for viewing and approval by the architect and
owner. The mock-up should be located at the job site, thus giving a preview of the
reflective qualities, distortions, etc., under real life conditions.
The pinholes, streaking and molting are generally process defects. The various coated
glass manufacturers generally publish their criteria for coating quality or will supply their
criteria upon request.
Monolithic coated glass, whether simply shipped to an insulating glass fabricator or to a
jobsite for use “as-is” may be vulnerable to scuff or rub marks generated during shipment.
The monolithically glazed, coated glass may also be subject to scuffs, rubs, cup marks
and scratches during and after glazing as well as by building occupants who do not
realize that the coating is softer than the glass itself. Glass so used should be handled
with greater-than-normal care by the glaziers and protected from the other trades, after
glazing, by hanging a clear plastic sheet several inches inboard from the glass.
Anything that scratches glass will scratch a pyrolitic coating; vacuum coatings are not as
hard as glass, hence more susceptible to damage.
LOW EMISSIVITY GLASS
These coatings have high visible light transmission. In fact, they are nearly invisible on
the glass.
The visible light transmission is typically about 20 percentage points below that of an
equivalent uncoated glass.
The major attribute of low E insulating units is their sensible heat reflecting character
which is apparent from their low “u” values. In northern climates they admit winter sun
while reflecting sensible indoor heat back into the building, when both lites are clear
glass. In souther climates they reduce glare while reflecting the outdoor heat-of-the-day
back out in summer with outboard lite bronze.
Low E coatings are applied to glass by vacuum processes and by pyrolitic processes.
TEMPERED GLASS
Tempered glass is fabricated by subjecting annealed glass to as special heat-treating
process. The most commonly used process is to heat the glass uniformly to
approximately 1150°, then rapidly cool it by blowing air uniformly onto both surfaces
simultaneously. The cooling process locks the outer surfaces of the glass in a state of
high compression and the central portion, or core, in compensating tension.,
The color, clarity, chemical composition and light transmission characteristics remain
unchanged. Likewise, compression strength, hardness, specific gravity, expansion

111
Glass Types and
Thermal Stress
The reflective glass heretofore discussed reflects the solar spectrum, that part of the heat
spectrum in the 300 to 2100 millemicron range of wavelengths. Low emissivity coatings
(low E) reflect that part of the heat spectrum above 3000 millemicrons wavelength that is
called “sensible heat”. The heat from hot water or steam radiators and the heat from hot
air ducts from a furnace are typical examples of this kind of heat.
coefficient, softening point, thermal conductivity, thermal transmittance and stiffness are
unchanged. The only physical property that changes is tensile or bending strength.
Under uniform loading, tempered glass is about four times stronger than annealed glass
of the same size and thickness, thus is more resistant to thermally induced stresses,
cyclic windloading and hail stone impacts.
When broken, tempered glass breaks into a multitude of small fragments of more-or-less
cubical shape. Therefore, it qualifies as a safety glazing material under the criteria of
Federal Standard 16 CFR 1201 and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)
Z97.1-1984, when so labeled and certified.
Spots or blotches may, at times, be visible on tempered glass, especially when viewed
through polarizing lenses or in certain types of reflected light. The intensity will vary with
lighting conditions and viewing angle. This is caused by the strain pattern induced during
the cooling stage, and is not inherently a cause for rejection.
PRODUCTION
There are two basic methods for producing air quenched tempered glass. In one method
the glass moves through the furnace and quench hung on tongs in a vertical position; in
the other it moves on rollers of stainless steel or high strength ceramic, in a horizontal
position.
Each method produces some degree of bow and warp, which is an inherent
characteristic of all tempered glass. Tong-held glass may exhibit a long arc or “S” curve
plus some minor distortion at the tong points. Horizontally tempered glass will have
characteristic waves or corrugations caused by the support rollers.
LIMITATIONS
Glass Types and
Thermal Stress
Recommended maximum service temperature for tempered glass is approximately 500°
F. Tempered glass, although four times stronger than annealed glass, should not be
selected to meet a given design wind load simply because annealed glass of the same
thickness will not so meet. The stiffness of annealed glass and tempered glass is the
same. Excessive deflection can cause glazing sealant failure, glass breakage by contact
of an edge or corner with the framing and occupant discomfort.
Some deep patterns of rolled glass cannot be tempered or, if tempered, will not break in
the manner prescribed by 16 CFR 1201 or ANSI Z97.1-1984.
Tempered glass cannot be cut, drilled or edged. It should not be sand-blasted or acid
etched after tempering.
Wired glass cannot be tempered.
HEAT STRENGTHENED GLASS
Heat strengthened glass is fabricated by a process similar to that for tempered glass.
Some equipment can produce both. The glass is heated to approximately 1100°F and the
cooling process is slower than for tempered glass. The strength developed is about twice
that of annealed glass.
Bow and warp generally are less evident to the eye than in tempered glass. Heat
strengthened glass, compared to annealed glass, has greater resistance to solar-induced
thermal stresses, cyclic windloading and hailstones.
3Scotchtint™/Scotchshield™ Window Film Manual
112
Heat strengthened glass does NOT meet the criteria for safety glazing materials under
16 CFR 1201 or ANSI Z97.1-1984. The break pattern is similar to that of annealed glass,
hence it tends to remain in the opening when broken.
SPANDREL GLASS
Spandrel glass panels are heat strengthened or tempered glasses with a ceramic frit
color permanently fused to one of the surfaces. Glass in spandrel areas is not subject to
corrosion as are some other spandrel materials. Pleasing esthetics and economies can
be obtained using a single framing system for an entire wall.
Glass spandrel panels can also save energy when insulation is placed behind them. The
insulation can be adhered directly to the glass or spaced 1/2" to 1" away.
When specifications require greater assurance that broken glass will remain in the
opening, an open weave glass fiber cloth or a special tape can be adhered to the back of
the spandrel panel. Some building codes require this. Test performance requirements
can be found in Section 7.12 of ASTM C1048-85.
Scattered pinholes, screen marks and small opaque particles are permissible in the
ceramic coating. Spandrel glass should not be used in areas subject to being viewed in
transmission.
Reflective glass spandrels need to rendered opaque to prevent read-through of the
building structure under certain light conditions. In order of effectiveness, the following
methods are suggested:
b. Mount dark gray or black rigid insulation a minimum of 1" inboard from the
monolithic reflective spandrel glass, preferably 2" or more from the glass. The air
space between glass and insulation should be well weeped to the exterior to avoid
condensation and potential staining.
c. Adhere a black polyester, fiberglass , or other type of film to the inboard face of the
monolithic reflective spandrel glass. The adhesive must be thoroughly tested,
insulation must be spaced back from the film at least 1", preferably 2". The space
must be well vented to avoid heat build-up that might cause problems with the film
or the adhesive.
NOTE: All glass in spandrel areas should be heat strengthened or tempered.
LAMINATED GLASS
Laminated glass consists of two or more plies of glass interleaved with clear or tinted
polyvinyl butyl (PF). The application of heat and pressure bonds the glass and plastic
interlayer into one unit.
When laminated glass is fractured, the particles of glass tend to adhere to the plastic,
affording protection against flying or falling particles. Some combinations of glass and
plastic thicknesses do qualify as safety glazing materials under the criteria of ANSI Z97.11984 and CPSC 16 CFR 1201. From a windload standpoint, laminated glass is generally
Considered to be approximately 60% as strong as annealed glass of the same total
thickness. Recent studies, as yet unpublished, indicate that laminated glass may be

virtually as strong as monolithic glass of the same thickness at normal temperatures,
when subjected to wind loads. Additional research is in progress.
Laminates of glass and polycarbonates are available for special uses involving
resistance to impacts of large magnitude.
Laminated glass can be made in many combinations of clear, tinted or reflective glass,
annealed, heat strengthened or tempered, with PF ranging from .015” to .090” or more,
dependent upon desired usage. Some of the most common architectural uses are for
safety glazing, burglar resistance, bullet resistance, sound transmission reduction,
sloped glazing and space enclosures.
A relatively new process, called resin laminating, is finding use in the laminating of curved
glass and other special short-run applications. The process requires that the two lites of
glass be spaced apart the desired dimension, such as 0.030 or 0.060, and the perimeter
dammed on three sides. The assembly is stood vertically and a liquid mixture of
chemicals is poured into the space between the lites and allowed to cure at room
temperature from two to ten hours before it is ready for use.
MIRRORS
Most mirrors are manufactured by the wet chemical deposition method, although a few,
for specialized use, are made by vacuum deposition. This processes are described under
the Reflective Glass Section. There is a wide range of thicknesses, qualities and sizes
available with annealed glass.
Safety mirrors are available to meet various laws and building codes. A mirror made from
tempered glass will have the inherent distortion from the tempering process hence
cannot have the same quality in reflection as laminated one made from mirror quality
annealed float glass.
Glass Types and
Thermal Stress
Transparent, or two-way mirrors, are designed to allow vision through from one direction
while presenting a mirror appearance from the opposite side. Their major application is to
permit undetected observation for study or surveillance in places such as prisons,
gambling casinos and psychiatric treatment centers. A difference in lighting level is
necessary; in the room to be studied the lighting level should be at least five times greater
than the lighting level in the observation room; ten times greater is even more effective.
Two way mirrors are not intended for use in exterior walls.

find that it takes only a few minutes to prepare a very detailed and accurate energy analysis report.
When using Demand Analyzer the user creates computer “models” of the building in question. These
models are created by completely describing the building and its utility costs within the program. This is
done by choosing values for several building “parameters.” These parameters are everything about the
building affecting its energy use and its annual energy costs (such as building location and climate, type of
windows, cost of electricity, square footage, number of stories, type of cooling and heating systems, etc.).
To create an energy analysis report showing the effect of adding solar film to a building, it is necessary to
create two building models. First, a “Base Case” model of the building as it currently exists (without solar
film) is produced. Second, a model is created of the building with solar film applied. The user can create
any number of models with film applied to compare the effect of different films. Once these models have
been created the energy analysis report is prepared.
To make the process as easy as possible, Demand Analyzer has several complete model templates built
into the program for the 17 most common building types (Large Office, Hospital, Motel, College, Large
Retail, Small Retail, High School, Residence, etc.). This simplifies the modeling process as the user only
modifies a few select parameters from these templates and does not need to enter all of the model
information for each analysis.
Included in this document are step by step instructions for using Demand Analyzer. It has been written for
those not completely comfortable with using a computer and includes very specific, detailed instructions.
More information on how to use the program (in a less detailed manner) can be found using the Help menu
option in Demand Analyzer. Also, included in the Demand Analyzer Help section is a Tutorial. Once you
have followed the steps below to create a few building models, and create and print a few reports and
graphs, you should be able to refer to the less detailed instructions in the Demand Analyzer Help and
Tutorial sections.
In the text below, menu choices from Demand Analyzer’s or other program’s menu bars (along the top of a
screen) are shown in Bold. Demand Analyzer building parameters and the names of windows or popup
menus that will appear in Demand Analyzer are shown as italicized bold letters. IMPORTANT: when
describing the use of the computer mouse, the word “click” refers to clicking the left mouse button once. Do
not double click or use the right mouse button unless specifically instructed to do so.

2. Modify Initial Base Case Parameter Values to match existing building without film and create
Final Base Case Model
1. Using Demand Analyzer Templates to create an
Initial Base Case Model
After starting Demand Analyzer, from the menu bar choices at the top of the screen, click on File, then
New, then Building.
The New Building window will appear on your screen. Options are shown for Category, Building Type,
Vintage, Description, Climate Zone, and Utility Rates.
➞
➞
The Category name is optional and is used to group together common buildings (for example models for a
particular client). You can choose the default “No Category” if desired or type in an appropriate name. If you
have previously entered a Category name, and wish to add the new model to this category, you can click
on the down arrow to the right of the Category box and choose a Category name from the list that
appears. In the list that appears, the name that is highlighted can be changed by moving the mouse up or
down, or by using the PgUp, PgDn, I, or I keys. Click the mouse when you have highlighted the desired
Category.
Next, click on the down arrow to the right of the box beside Building Type, and choose from the list that
appears the type of building you wish to analyze. Click on the type of building desired. This step is critically
important, as many of the parameters defining the building depend upon the Building Type chosen. If you
do not choose the correct Building Type you cannot expect the resulting energy analysis to be accurate.
By clicking on the down arrow to the right of the box beside Vintage, you can choose the date
corresponding to when the building was built. There are three sets of dates to choose from. Again, the
Vintage will alter many of the model parameters used, so be certain that the choice made is correct.
Next, click in the blank box next to Description and type a descriptive name for the building, such as
“Building (without film).”
➞
➞
Clicking on the down arrow to the right of Climate Zone, choose the city nearest to the actual building
location. Once you click on the down arrow, you can move quickly to the desired state or country by
pressing the first letter of the state or country (or again you can move the mouse up or down, or use the
PgUp, PgDn, I, or I keys).
Finally, unless you read more about Utility Rates in the Demand Analyzer Help screens, and know what
you are doing, leave the Utility Rate box set to “default.”
It is important to make sure you have made the proper choices for the parameters shown in the New
Building window, BEFORE proceeding further. Once you leave this window you cannot change some of
the parameters shown. So, once you are sure you have the correct choices in the New Building window,
click on OK. When you do so, you will notice that the building model is added to the Buildings in Database
window (normally on the left side of the screen). Buildings in this window are grouped first by Category and
second by Building Type and Vintage.
Now you are ready to modify the building parameters to more closely match the building you are analyzing.

2. Modify Initial Base Case Parameter Values to match existing
building Without film and create Final Base Case Model
Once you have created an initial Base Case building model without film, you will need to modify some of
the parameters within the model to match the specific building you are analyzing. When you first create the
building model in Step 1 above, Demand Analyzer uses typical values for many of the parameters based
on the Building Type and Vintage chosen.
The parameters that you may need to modify will depend on the Building Type. In Table 1 on the next
page, is a summary of the different parameters you may need to modify by Building Type. If you do not
have good information as to what value to enter for a given parameter, use the default value given by
Demand Analyzer. Of course, the accuracy of the energy analysis will depend entirely upon the accuracy of
the parameter values used.
To change the values of a parameter in a building model, you will first need to open the building parameter
list for a building. Buildings are selected from the Buildings in Database window. If the building name
needed is not shown in the Buildings in Database window, click the + symbol to the left of the Category
for that building. Buildings are also grouped by Building Type and Vintage so you may need to click on the
+ symbol beside any of the Building Type/Vintage listings shown to show all of the buildings in that
particular group in order to find your building. Once the building name needed is shown, double clicking a
building name or clicking the + symbol beside the building name will display a list of building parameter
groups. Double clicking on the name of a particular parameter group or clicking on the + symbol beside any
of these parameter groups will show all of the individual parameters for that group.
To change a parameter value, click on the parameter name. If the parameter is a simple Yes/No type, then
the box is either checked (meaning Yes) or unchecked (meaning No). Otherwise, the parameter may be
edited in the popup box that appears when you click on the parameter. Notice that as any parameter is
changed to a non-default value, the box next to it is changed to have a blue background. Parameters that
have a gray box are deactivated because of the selection of another parameter. A summary for the building
being edited is displayed in a separate building window showing every parameter that is not set to the
default value (the window title is the name of the building).
Be certain that you choose the correct Window Glass Type values for each orientation (North, South, East
and West) in the Envelope parameter group. Only four orientations are allowed for windows, but it is
possible to change the default N-E-S-W to NE-SE-SW-NW by simply changing the building azimuth to 45.
That effectively rotates the entire building. Be sure to choose a Window Glass Type without film.
You can also change a building’s Description, Climate Zone, or Utility Rates after creating a model, by
first single clicking on a building name in the Buildings in Database window to highlight a specific building.
Next, single click the highlighted building name and the New Building popup window will appear. Keep in
mind that you will not be able to change the Category Building Type or Vintage.

3. Creating Building Model with film
Once you have followed Steps I and 2 to create the Base Case building model without film, you are ready to
create the building model with film. Demand Analyzer will allow you to copy the Base Case building model
you have just created, saving you from editing most of the parameter values again. Of course, it will be
necessary to change the Window Glass Type parameter for the model with film. This parameter will
specify which film will be applied to the windows in the model with film.
To copy a building model, once you are sure you have modified all of the necessary building parameters for
the Base Case model, collapse the building parameter list by clicking on the “-” symbol beside the building
name you are working on. The name of the Base Case building without film should remain highlighted. If
the correct building name is not highlighted, click on the correct name once. Then click on the Edit
command on the menu list at the top of the screen. Then click Copy. Demand Analyzer will ask you if you
are sure you want to copy the building chosen. Click Yes. A Copy Building popup window will appear
showing a blank Category and the Description for the building copied. Click on the down arrow beside
Category and choose the same Category as used for the Base Case building. Next, click on the
Description box and edit the description to indicate that the new model includes film applied to the
windows. For example: “Building (with film A)”. It is a good idea to include the exact film name in the
Description for buildings with film as you may want to compare several film types. So you may have
“Building (with Film A)”, “Building (with Film B)”, etc. Keep in mind that each model will contain only
information about the building for a single film type. If you want to compare different films, you will need to
create a new model for each film. Also, the Description name will appear on any graphs or printouts
created so adding film names will make it easy to compare the effect of different film types.
Once you have entered a Description for the building with film click on OK. You can create additional
models for additional film types by copying the building again. Be sure to choose the same Category so
that the models are grouped together in the Buildings in Database window.
Since the model or models you have just created are identical to the Base Case model without film, the only
parameter you will need to change is the Window Glass Type parameter to add film to the building. Again,
click on the + symbol beside the Building Name, the click on the + beside Envelope, then click on the
Window Glass Type for a given orientation. From the popup box that appears, choose the appropriate
window & film combination. For example, if you chose “Single Clear (no film)” for the model without film, be
sure that when you choose a film name, the window type also is “Single Clear”, such as “Single Clear with
Film A”. (Note: You can add film to any of the orientations or all of them. If you do not wish to add film to a
given orientation such as North, do not edit the Window Glass Type for that orientation. You can also add
different film types to different orientations).
Edit each building model with film, being sure to edit the Window Glass Type for ALL orientations desired.

Energy Savings
Now that you have created a Base Case Model without film and a model with film, you are ready to create
the energy analysis report.
4. Creating Energy Analysis Report
Once you have created a Base Case model for your building without film and then a model with film, it is a
simple matter to create a detailed report showing the energy and cost savings from adding film.
From the menu choices at the top of the Demand Analyzer screen, click on File, then New, then Report.
When the “Report and Building Selection” popup window appears, choose “Economic Analysis” in the
Report option box.
Next use the building tree that is shown to choose the buildings for your report. You may need to expand the
tree to find your buildings by clicking on the + symbol beside the Category for your buildings. If there is more
than one Building Type in this Category click on the + symbol beside the Building Type for the models just
created. Next click the box beside each building you wish to include in the report and click on Next.
Fill in the information on the “Report Parameters” screen and press Next.
Make sure the building model name without film is identified as your “Base Case” by ensuring that the box
beside the building model without film is checked.
Using the Tab key, move the cursor so that you can now enter the total installed cost for the film for each
building with film. This is the total quote for the entire job, NOT the cost per square foot. So if you are
creating a report for a 10,000 square foot job and you are charging $3.00 per square foot, you would enter
$30,000. Be sure to include a cost for each model with film. Then press Finish.
At this point you may see a Demand Analyzer message that reads “One or more buildings with no
simulation. Run required simulations?” Click on Yes. Depending on the number of models that will be
simulated and the speed of your computer, this may take a few minutes. When the Simulation Progress
meter is 100%, click on OK.
Demand Analyzer will create a report with a cover page, an Economic Analysis Summary Page, and a
Buildings Parameter Summary. The cover page will show the annual savings and payback for the film with
the greatest savings along with general information about Demand Analyzer. The Economic Analysis
Summary Page will show the savings and payback for each film option chosen. The Buildings Parameter
Summary lists all of the model parameters chosen for each model.
If you are using Microsoft Word, you can save the report by choosing File, Save As, choose a directory
different from the default \Temp directory shown, and then click on Save. IMPORTANT: DO NOT SAVE
THE FILE TO THE \TEMP DIRECTORY EVEN THOUGH THIS IS THE DEFAULT DIRECTORY. ALL FILES
FROM THE \TEMP DIRECTORY ARE ERASED WHEN DEMAND ANALYZER IS CLOSED. IT IS BEST
TO USE A DIRECTORY COMPLETELY APART FROM ANY DEMAND ANALYZER DIRECTORY (SUCH
AS USING C:\ENERGY REPORTS AS A DIRECTORY FOR ALL YOUR ANALYSIS REPORTS. ALSO,
DO NOT CHANGE THE “SAVE AS TYPE” FROM “RICH TEXT FORMAT”TO “WORD DOCUMENT”.
LEAVE AS “RICH TEXT FORMAT.”
Again, if using MS Word, you can print the report by choosing File, then Print.

5. Creating Graphs
You can easily create graphs that illustrate the energy savings from adding different solar films. These
graphs can then be printed out and attached to the “Economic Analysis Report.” To create a graph, from
the menu choices at the top of the Demand Analyzer screen, click on File, then New, then Graph. Next
click on the Annual Cost option. There are several graph types to choose from and you will need to
experiment with each of these to see which graphs would be the most useful for your needs. The most
common graph, however, will certainly be the Annual Cost graph. This graph shows the total annual cost
for each building model chosen.
Just as you did to create a report in step 4 above, you will next choose the buildings to be included in the
graph. When the Select Buildings to Graph window appears, click on the + symbol beside the Category
for the buildings to be included on the graph. If there is more than one Building Type in this Category click
on the + symbol beside the Building Type for the models you wish to graph. Next click the box beside each
building you wish to include in the report and click OK. The buildings will be shown on the graph from left to
right in the order chosen. At this point you may see a Demand Analyzer message that reads “One or more
buildings with no simulation. Run required simulations?” Click on Yes. Depending on the number of models
that will be simulated and the speed of your computer, this may take a few minutes. When the Simulation
Progress meter is 100%, click on OK. You will then be prompted for the Graph Title to use. You can accept
the default title shown by clicking OK, or enter your own title and click OK. The graph will appear in a small
window on your screen. Click on the Maximize button (the ■ symbol in the upper right section of the graph
window that appears) to enlarge the graph.
From the graph window you can use the graph window menu options to change the appearance of the
graph or simply print the graph by clicking on File, Print (be sure to use the File, Print command from the
graph window menu option list, not the main Demand Analyzer menu options at the very top of the screen).

Energy Savings
If you have problems with the graph and legends appearing on separate pages, from the graph window,
click on File, Print Preview, and under the “Options” box make certain that no check is in the box beside
“Separate Legend”. Notice that you can also change the margins or orientation of your graph from this
screen, if needed to improve the appearance of the printed graph.
6. Other Topics
A. English (Inch-Pound) or Metric (SI) Units
You can use either system of units by clicking on Options from the Demand Analyzer main menu bar, then
choosing the system of units choice. You can switch between the two systems at any time.
B. Currency other than Dollars, $
To have reports and graphs print a currency symbol other than $, edit the default.ecn file in the Program
Files\Demand Analyzer\Rates directory using Word or Notepad, or from Windows Explorer in this directory,
double-click the default.ecn file to edit the file. The first few lines of this file should look like:
$ currency = $
INPUT ECONOMICS ..
ECONOMICS-REPORT SUMMARY (ES-D) ..
The symbol after “$ currency =” on the first line is the symbol that will be used in reports and graphs. For
example, to use British Pounds, you would edit the first line to read:
$ currency = £
Be careful not to change any other portion of this file. Save the file after making this change.
C. Non-square buildings or buildings with more than four sides
The default building geometry for larger building types is a square building. If the building you are modeling
is rectangular, you should change the Aspect Ratio parameter, which is a parameter within the General
parameter group. Use the Demand Analyzer Help section to learn more about changing the Aspect Ratio.
Similarly, if the building you are modeling does not face true North, South, East and West, you should edit
the Building Azimuth parameter to rotate your model as needed. Again, see the Demand Analyzer Help
section for assistance.
If the building you are modeling has more than four sides, you will need to apportion the square footage of
glass area in some manner to the four sides available in Demand Analyzer. For example, if you have glass
facing North, South, East, West and Southwest, you could evenly divide the square footage of
Southwestern facing windows between South and West.
D. Fuel 0il as a heating fuel source
Although rare, there are some buildings that may use Fuel Oil as a heating fuel. Due to the rarity of this
situation, Demand Analyzer unfortunately does not permit choosing Fuel Oil as a heating fuel source.
Therefore, if you are modeling a building where the heating fuel is fuel oil you will need to make the
following modifications to your model.
Energy Savings
If fuel oil is the heating fuel, you will need to enter a value for the Natural Gas Energy Cost per Therm
under the Utility Rates parameter group. To do this, use Table 2 on the following page to convert the fuel
oil cost per gallon to an equivalent Natural Gas Energy Cost per Therm. For example, if fuel oil costs 1.80
per gallon, you would enter 1.38 per therm as the Energy Cost per Therm for Natural Gas. The two costs
shown take into account for the likely differences between the efficiencies of fuel oil versus natural gas
systems, so you do not need to adjust the efficiency of the heating plant that Demand Analyzer uses. You
should keep in mind that there is no way to change the appearance of the words “Natural Gas” or “therms”
in graphs and reports, so be aware of this before presenting results to your customer.
Since solar control film has a much greater effect on the cooling energy costs than heating fuel costs, this
method of adjusting your model is reasonable.

Important Details About Your Installation
Of 3M™ Scotchtint™ Film
Dear Customer:
As with all products containing an adhesive system, a drying time is necessary to the achievement of the proper bond to the
window. During this process, some changes may be observed. So that you will understand these differences, we would like to
note some of them for you. They are normal and should be expected to occur. Listed below, by way of recap, are the points
covered by our sales representative.
•
Drying time will be approximately 30 days. Please do not wash your windows during this period.
•
Any haziness you may see is water under the film. You will see less and less of this as the days pass.
•
A milky appearance might be experienced, but it too disappears during the drying period.
•
All water bubbles will dry out, but a few small particles or points may be apparent when dry. These points, generally seen
from the outside, are very tiny and are inherent in the use of a pressure sensitive adhesive system. An adhesive of this type
is used because it is the only one that will withstand high humidity, driving rains and window condensation. You will
normally see these particles only if you get quite close to the glass, which is something we ordinarily do not do. They will
not affect the films performance.
The 1/8" (3 mm) border you notice is a requirement of the application according to 3M.
•
Cleaning should be done using normal household window cleaners* or any non-abrasive window cleaning solution and
wiping with a soft towel or squeegee. Paper towels or natural sponges should not be used.
NOTE: Sometimes a customer feels he sees a defect in the film when it is, in fact in the glass. It is quite natural that one
should look closely at a new purchase, but at times we observe things that were always there but never noticed. A good rule to
follow is to look at the installation from six feet away. This is the manner in which we normally look through a window and the
way in which you should observe your Scotchtint film — looking through it, not at it
We and 3M hope you will enjoy your installation. With proper care, we know you will receive many years of benefit from its
presence on your windows.
Very truly yours,

AUTOMOTIVE PROCESS
Vehicle Application Recommendations
“Take the proper amount of time and care up front to maintain a high quality dirt-free
application, rather than lose production time because of redo’s.”
1. Have tools and supplies close to vehicle - saves production time
2. Clean inside of window
a. Scrape
b. Rinse
c. Squeegee
4. Cut film pattern
a. Get film to conform to curvature of glass
b. Trim away excess film
c. Always break off blade after 3 cuts. Improperly cut edges will cause film to not lay
down, or excessive fingers
5. Clean outside window again and leave a layer of water on glass to hold the film in place
6. Wash away water soluble overcoat as liner is being pulled off
7. Using the slip/positioning solution we the inside of the window
REMEMBER!! The more water between the film and the glass prior to squeegeeing,
the cleaner the final application will be
8. Place the film on the inside of the vehicle window and squeegee out the maximum
amount of water. To remove water from edge of window use a squeegee with an
absorbent towel covering the squeegee blade.
HELPFUL HINTS
1. You can’t use too much water
2. You can use too much slip/positioning solution
3. You can’t use too many blades
4. You never use silicone near adhesives
5. Always rinse and squeegee off any window cleaning solutions or adhesive removers
prior to film application
6. Always start squeegeeing from behind a finger and squeegee completely to edge of
film
3Scotchtint™/Scotchshield™ Window Film Manual
176
Installation
3. Clean outside of window to eliminate dust/dirt coming into contact with film
7. If film will not lay down, or you are experiencing excessive fingers, possible causes are:
a. Using improper slip/positioning solution with too much solvent or alcohol
b. Slip/positioning concentration too high
c. Edge of film cut with dull blade
d. Film cut too close to edge of window
e. Overcoat not completely washed (dissolved) off
f. Non-sticky substance on glass
8. Remove all decal’s
9. If too much dust/dirt is behind film and glass, possible causes are:
a. Overcoat not completely washed (dissolved) off
Installation
b. Not enough water was used
10. Use fluorescent light inside of vehicles when cutting pattern from outside
11. Always apply “Don’t Roll Down” stickers on roll-down windows with film
12. Apply narrow piece of masking tape over fuzzy channel material on framed side
windows - reduces amount of dust/dirt on glass
13. Rinse your fingers prior to touching adhesive system
14. Always apply film below rubber molding on bottom of roll-down windows

Because of its unique construction, Color-Stable feels and handles
somewhat differently than conventional window films. Following
are a few techniques that will make difficult installations seem easier.
Heat Shrinking
•
Thoroughly clean the outside surface of the window to which the
film will be heat formed.
•
From a 40” roll, cut the film to cover the width of the glass.
Place the film so that it is in the machine direction. Leave a
1-inch overlap on the sides and 4 inches on the top and bottom.
You’ll need the extra film with this technique.
•
•
Spray the mounting solution to the clean surface of the glass and
apply the piece of film to be heat formed. Make sure the liner is
towards you.
Position the film on the window and squeegee making an H pattern to hold film in place on the glass. Do not form fingers, but
make sure all excess film is at the top and bottom of the film, not
the sides.

SPECIAL POINTS OF
INTEREST:
• Color-Stable is actually
thicker than most regular
dyed films (1.1 mil), but a
lot more pliable.
• Because of its maneuverability, it actually forms
better to the dot matrix
less silvering.
• No interference with satelite signals or worries
with back-glass antennas.
• Never turns purple.
• 3M is the only window
film manufacturer capable of making this product from start to finish.
•
Make a relief cut. Four inches from the top of the glass start
cutting 1 inch from the dot matrix.

Color-Stable
Installation Techniques
•
Turn heat gun on to high and with your free hand, hold and lift the
film at the top of the car, approximately 1 inch from the glass.
You should now have created an air pocket. Horns will form
around the pocket, commence heating the horns by fanning your
heat gun with a side-to-side motion (5” from one side to the
other). You’ll notice that the film needs less heat to shrink; we
recommend you hold the gun 4” from the film. After the horns
disappear, start applying heat to the pocket.
•
Once you have the film at the right temperature, you’ll notice the
pocket will melt rapidly (much faster than conventional films) and
take the shape of the glass. Follow it until it disappears and then
squeegee out with the 3M Gold Card. Do this for all the excess
film on the top and bottom of the glass.
•
For the extra film in the center area of the glass, you need to
“walk the dog.” Apply moderate heat (use the same fanning
motion) to the film bubble and follow the air pocket until it is
eliminated. Once eradicated, squeegee out with 3M Gold Card.
Never lift the film in the center area or try to eliminate an air
pocket that is horizontal.
•
If you come across a high-tension area, you will notice that this
film is a lot more forgiving than conventional films. Just apply
opposite tension and moderate heat to the affected area.
•
Once all of the excess film has been shrunk, the film can be
removed from the glass and installed after normal cleaning
procedures for the internal glass have been completed.

Glossary
ANNEALING
To heat above the critical or
recrystallization temperature, then
controlled cooling of glass or other
materials to eliminate the effects of coldworking, relieve internal stresses or
improve strength, ductility, or other
properties.
DEGREE-DAY
A unit that represents a 1°F (1°C) deviation
from some fixed reference point (usually
65°F [18°C]) in the mean, daily outdoor
temperature. (See heating degree-day and
cooling degree day)
CONVECTION
Heat transfer by the movement of fluid
or air.
COOLING DAYS
The number of days in a year that the air
conditioning equipment is used.
COOLING DEGREE-DAY
Cooling and heating engineers have found
a way to relate the typical climate
conditions of different areas to the amount
of energy needed to cool and heat a
building. The term they use is “DegreeDay” using a base temperature of 65°F
(18°C). A cooling degree-day is counted for
each degree above 65°F (18°C) reached by
the average (between the highest and
lowest) daily outside temperatures in the
summer. For example, if on a given
summer day the high is 90°F (32°C) and
the low is 70°F (21 °C), the daily average
temperature is 80°F (26°C). This is 15°F
(8°C) above the base temperature of 65°F
(18°C difference). So, on that day, you
would have gone through 15 (8) cooling
degree-days.
CORROSION
The deterioration of metal by chemical or
electro-chemical reaction resulting from
exposure to weathering, moisture,
chemicals, or other agents or media.
DESICCANT
An extremely porous crystalline substance
used to absorb moisture from within the
sealed air space of an insulating glass unit.
DEW POINT
The temperature at which the condensation
of water vapor in a space. Used in testing
sealed insulated glass. The lower the
number, the higher the resistance to
forming condensation.
DOUBLE GLAZING
In general, any use of two panes of glass,
separated by an air space, within an
opening, to improve insulation against heat
transfer and/or sound transmission. In
factory-made double glazing units the air
between the glass sheets is thoroughly
dried and the space is sealed airtight,
eliminating possible condensation and
providing superior insulating properties.
(See sealed insulating glass.)
EDGE CLEARANCE
The distance between the edge of a unit of
glass or panel and its surrounding frame,
measured normal to the edge in the plane
of the glass or panel.
CRF (Condensation Resistance Factor)
Gives an indication of a window’s ability to
resist condensation. The higher the CRF,
the less likely condensation is to occur.

the surface to reflect room radiant energy
since, for window systems. the emissivity
and the reflectivity of room radiant energy
add up to unity. A low emissivity means a

HEATING DAYS
The number of days in a year that the
heating equipment is used.
HEATING DEGREE-DAY
Heating and cooling engineers have found a
way to relate the typical climate conditions of
different areas to the amount of energy
needed to heat and cool a building. The term
they use is “Degree-Days” using a base
temperature of 65°F ( 18°C). A heating
degree-day is counted for each degree
below 65°F (18°C) reached by the average
(between the highest and lowest) daily
outside temperatures in the winter. For
example, if on a given winter day the high is
40°F (4°C) and the low is 20°F (-6°C), the
daily average temperature is 30°F (-1°C).
This is 35°F (19°C difference) below the
base temperature of 65°F (18°C). So, on that
day, you would have gone through 35 (19)
heating degree-days.

frame to hold the glass in place.
GLAZING COMPOUND
A soft dough-like material used for filling
and sealing the space between a pane of
glass and its surrounding frame.
HEAT GAIN

in terms of the fuel consumption required to
maintain a comfortable indoor temperature.
HUMIDITY, RELATIVE
