    Does anyone know a good supplier of privacy (frosted) window film?

    I have a client that we do all of their vehicles for and they asked if we could recommend something for a conference room with large windows. I figured it couldn't be much harder than wrapping a van. Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    D3G

    I've used 3M and Oracals frosted film for privacy glass, both work well. Any vinyl supplier should stock those.

    I like the Mactac frost. It's the only thing that I use from them but it generally works pretty good. Takes a little practice to figure out how to apply it properly but it can be done. Plus, you can sometimes use heat to correct any stretch marks you might get in it. If it's a solid piece, apply it wet. If it's a more than that, do it dry, take your time and get all the bubbles out.

    Thanks for the responses, very helpful advice. I was worried the materials from Fellers, GSG and the like weren't for this type of application. I thought that type of material was more for small "cut vinyl" type applications.

    Merry Christmas!

    Frost films are either window tint or vinyl. Vinyls apply wet or dry and window films always wet. Also its all about preference. The replies above are all right on and they have meantioned good products!
