Rated 1 out of 5Â by Barnsey74 Tape failed on each window
The 3 windows I 'glazed' with this product failed within 24 hours. The tape slowly slipped as the plastic pulled it towards the centre of the window and eventually gave way completely. This was NOT due to the surface being dirtly / greasy as I diligently cleaned it as per the instructions.
On the screwfix site this is branded as a Stormguard product, but when picked up in store it came in a plain plastic bag with no branding.
3 other windows I glazed with a Stormguard branded version (which has a different roll of tape) have stayed perfectly in place for several weeks.
My suggestion is pay an extra quid for the real thing!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by wogger the plastic that does not work
I have used this before but not this make what I used was by "polycell".
That was good but this which I got from screwfix was terrible.
Stuck ok but when it was shrunk it was ok for 2 or 3 hours then went all slack and looked terrible.
Tried to shrink again and it split so it was useless.
Even bought another pack just as bad.........real glutton for punishment,would never recommend to anyone would lose my mates.
Would have asked for a refund but after you have takken it down I dont think they would accept.

We have old, but sound sash. windows that suffered from heavy condensation overnight, especially in the bedrooms.
I used methylated spirit to clean the paintwork prior to installation as I reckon its better than using white spirit as the instructions state. White spirit can leave an oily residue.
Get the adhesive tape nice and straight and true. Measure your film carefully, mark with felt tip pen and cut with sharp scissors.
Put the film up making adjustments as you go to get it as taut as possible, leaving the hair dryer to make the finishing touches of removing small wrinkles.
Finally, I found a new scalpel was the best thing for final trimming of any overlap of film.
Result; no more condensation. I am impressed at the results, especially at the price.

The tape sticks best to very clean paint that is smooth and fairly glossy. It sticks very well (almost immovably) to new paint.
If your paint is old and rough, it will not stick well. Certainly you will get best results by cleaning and drying tthe surface thoroughly
It is a very good-value way to improve insulkation and cut condensation, but you will be lucky if it lasts more than one year. It is difficult to keep the inner surface clean for long periods.
