Single sided, custom frost printed decorative window film
HDFrost: Custom Printed Frost Decorative Window Film
Designers can easily apply custom etched glass, sandblasted, dusted crystal and frost effects to glazing – thanks to HDFrost, a new high-definition decorative window film developed by HDClear.
The process, which can replicate just about any image, pattern or gradient, no matter how complicated or intricate; can be printed onto optical clear polyester window film without the need for any post print ‘cutting/weeding’ or the use of backing application tape.
An industry first for printed window films
What were traditionally costly and complex jobs are now fully customizable and cost-effective thanks to our unique printing processes. HDFrost is an industry first for decorative window films allowing for the creation of custom printed privacy, frost and etched glazing effects to any design.
HDFrost can be printed in greyscale or CMYK color-scale and has been developed to create a uniform color and translucency for all glazed areas. The ability to match color allows for privacy and frosted glass to blend and harmonize with the design of the surroundings

Custom frosted film that’s easy to install

Glass is completely covered, with the custom design printed directly onto optically clear polyester film leaving a smooth, clean finish. There is no requirement for cutting or weeding, saving time, making installation simple and leaving a superior finish.
What makes HDFrost frosted window film different?
HDFrost works with true, optically clear polyester film (PET). We use a unique printing process with CMYK inks and white inks. Applied in layers, our proprietary process allows graphics to be viewed from one or both sides of the glazing, permitting natural light to flood through. Our optically clear polyester film outlasts all traditional vinyl graphic applications to flat glass areas.
The HDClear PET substrate is a true polyester-based blast mitigation film with almost 100% optical clarity in the un-printed areas. When properly fitted to glazing, the film becomes undetectable. To put it simply, the film is virtually as clear as the glazing it is applied to. The substantial added benefit of clarity makes the images appear as part of the glazing. Our film bypasses inherent problems and cost of decorative laminated glass or direct-to-glass printing.
