Purlfrost’s copper reflective window film, also known as Mirror Film, is the perfect option for excess sunlight and glare. Our reflective film gives instant results and can be applied to most glass surfaces. With three grades to choose from, our copper reflective film can be purchased by the metre, but we would recommend our "Cut to size" option that helps with installation.
With a sleek appearance and hugely effective heat and glare reduction capabilities, copper reflective film has long been the preferred solar control option for commercial buildings. Many working on computers close to windows can be affected by excessive amounts of light and glare that can often cause headaches and a loss of productivity. This is why copper reflective film can be a useful tool for companies beyond their aesthetic reduction of light in the workplace.
As probably expected by its name, excess sunlight is reflected away from the window. This type of film also stops 99% of UV light from entering. This can be especially useful for any painted objects within your office or home that can become faded over time.
Our reflective films come with a 10 year warranty, but they will last much longer.
Unlike car tints that are often dyed film, solar control tints are usually made up of many layers of different materials. Our copper reflective film is no different and is made up of the following layers:
1. A "Hard" scratch resistant layer - for durability and ease of maintenance during window cleaning
2. High optical quality polyester, with anti IR metal particles deposit
3. Bonding adhesive
4. High optical quality polyester
5. Pressure Sensitive adhesive, glass polymerization within 15 days
6. Protection release liner, disposable after installation
The film is a self adhesive material that is applied with a soapy water solution and a squeegee that ensures that there are no bubbles in the film.
Mirror film is just another name for reflective window film. This is because of copper reflective film’s added benefit of providing privacy from outside during daytime hours, something especially useful for offices or rooms on lower levels in residential areas. The level of privacy that this film does, however, vary. The darker the film, the more reflective it is – so if you would be purchasing reflective film primarily for this reason, opting for our darkest copper film would be best. It is also worth noting that reflective film does require light for it to be in effect, so it will only offer privacy during daytime hours.
If you are planning to install this film on a double glazed unit, make sure the glass is toughened. If it is, it will have a kite mark in one of the corners of the pane. If you apply this film on glass that is not toughened, the glass could crack due to poor build quality especially on older units. Please use a MEDIUM grade copper reflective film as an alternative to the dark.
Absolutely. You will need a spray bottle, some soapy water, and as wide a glass scraper as you can get. Click here to view our range of window film installation and removal tools.
Just clean with soapy water and a squeegee, that's all. Using anything abrasive when cleaning will eventually damage the film. Wait for 4 weeks after installation before you clean the film.
