Yes. Unlike other decorative glass processes, SOLYX ® Decorative Films can be removed if desired. This of course is a huge advantage and most landlords do not object to their tenants' installation of film when they find out the product can be removed. To remove SOLYX films simply peel away the film from one corner and pull the film from the glass. If any adhesive remains on the glass it can easily be removed with a spray of soapy water and a single edge razorblade. (Blades cannot be used on Plexiglas or Polycarbonate sheets to remove film.) In addition, the cost of reinstalling SOLYX ® Decorative Films on existing glass is low in comparison to other processes.
SOLYX® Adhesive film cannot be reused after removal however the SOLYX® Static Cling range can be reused after removal- the linear needs to be placed onto it again.

The film is always on the inside. The film will stick to the outside, but it will greatly reduce the life of the film. This is due to the fact that the UV stabilizers are incorporated within the film's mounting adhesive, so the adhesive side must be facing the sun (installed on the inside, facing out).
