All You Need to Know About Squeegees
Squeegees are needed for the bubble-free application of vinyl films on sign plates or cars. With a squeegee you remove trapped air by swiping the hand tool towards the edges of the wrapping film.
Depending on the type of substrate, you can choose between felt or plastic squeegees. While the soft felt material is very gentle to the film, the plastic squeegee facilitates precise working and exerting more pressure during the application process.
You can use these tools for many jobs, not only car wrapping. Here are some examples:
- installing wall stickers or decals
- applying protective overlay films on signs
- installing window films
For large flat surfaces (motorway signs etc.), we recommend the use of the 3MTM rubber hand roller.
