The StonGard film that I applied to my euro lenses did not involve
use of any alcohol/water activator. It was just peeled from its
protective backing and applied directly, so I assume it must be a
somewhat different product than the 3M material.

BTW, speaking of StonGard "updates": I emailed the StonGard "Customer
Service" many weeks ago and described  the poorly fitting euro lens
film I received from them. I asked about any improvement they plan to
make for that product's dimensions and also  suggested the
possibility of replacing my StonGard headlight film. They have never
replied to that message nor to my follow-up email. As others have
indicated, StonGard's "customer service" appears to be stinko.
