Mylar Mirror Repair and Cleaning Instructions


View Mylar Mirror Product Description

Repairing Wrinkles:
Your typical hair dryer should be sufficient. Turn on hair dryer and start at the lowest heat setting. Start at approximately 6-8" away from the spot you are trying to repair.  Move in a circular fashion, working towards outside edge for 1-2 seconds at a time, remove hair dryer, and see how much the wrinkles flattened out. You may need to turn the hair dryer to a higher setting, get a little closer to the film, or use a low wattage heat gun (see instructions for indentations). It is recommended to never get closer than 4" from the reflective film.

Any damage inflicted onto the mylar mirror using this procedure is NOT covered under any warranty and will be at your own expense. If the mirror tears or peels, it will need to be "re-skinned", which is an expensive repair, so be careful!

Repairing Indentations: 
You will need a heat gun. This can be found at Home Depot, Lowes, etc. and typically costs under $20). Use a low wattage heat gun (under 400 watts - preferably around 360 watts).  Turn on heat gun and start at the lower setting. Start at approximately 6-8" away from the spot you are trying to repair. You may need to get closer to the film but do not do so until you follow these steps.

Point at the spot for 1-2 seconds, remove heat gun. As you apply the heat to the mirror you will start to see ripples, at this point you want to pull the heat gun away and let the ripples pull back together. This is the tightening process that will pull the film indentation out. If using a low wattage heat gun, you may need to turn the heat to the higher setting, if available, and start further away from the mirror than you previously did using the lower setting.  Repeat the steps above. It is recommended to never get closer than 4" from the reflective film.

Repeat as necessary until indentations pull back into shape. Do not heat longer than 3-4 seconds at a time or hold the heat gun too close to the mirror, as this may permanently damage the panel! 

Any damage inflicted onto the mylar mirror using this procedure is NOT covered under any warranty and will be at your own expense. If the mirror tears or peels, it will need to be "re-skinned", which is an expensive repair, so be careful!

  
Glassless Mirror Cleaning Instructions:

If your glassless mirror has accumulated excessive dust and debris, before attempting to clean the mirror, use a can of compressed air (which can be found in most photographic and electronics stores) to blow away all dust and debris off the mylar mirror.

To clean off smudges and finger prints, use a clean, 100% cotton or optical grade cleaning cloth (e.g. micro-fiber cloth) and Windex. Apply Windex to cloth until cloth is damp (saturated) but not dripping. Clean the mirror in one direction, then stroke using a fresh, dry part of the cloth (or separate cloth) after each pass.
