Textured glass is often used for obscuring glass and creating privacy. It can be quite beautiful in the right setting and create an elegant look. However, there are situations in which a property owner may want to add window film to the glass for added security, privacy, or energy efficiency. But is this possible to do? Can you install window film on textured glass? Here’s what our Salt Lake City team has to say about the matter.

Is It Possible to Install Window Film on Textured Glass?

Many people assume that it’s not possible. But in reality, it’s very possible to install window film on textured glass. You just need the right product.

It’s true that certain window films will not stick to textured glass. But there are some designed specifically for this purpose. If you read the manufacturer’s specifications, you’ll be able to tell whether or not the film is compatible with textured surfaces.

That being said, you’ll always make sure you check before you buy.

Best for Textured Glass: Liquid NanoTint

Drywired has a great option for textured glass called Liquid NanoTint. This thermal insulating coating comes in a liquid form, so it can be applied to textured and uneven surfaces. NanoTint is an excellent option for boosting energy efficiency and preventing UV damage caused by fading.

If you’re looking for a window film that can be applied to textured or curved surfaces like wood, metal, or plastic, then 3M DI-NOC is an excellent choice.
