I bought covering film at HK but there was no manual with it. I know covering film with glue on it but on HK film there is no glue. Therefor I'm looking for a how to do.

    It is 'iron on' covering film if it appears to resemble polyethylene. You will be needing an iron to fix it to the item to be covered, a heat heat gun to shrink it taught, and a solvent if you need to join overlaps in the film as it tends not to stick to itself well.

    Have a google for 'applying solarfilm' for more in depth info.

    You can get away with using a normal laundry iron, but ideally one of these is the best way:

    I have used Solarfilms and Oracover and they come with instructions and they have widely different temperatures for tacking and fixing. I have always used a temperature gauge to set my covering iron with great results. Can anyone tell me what the temperatures are for HK film?
