Proper Squeegeeing Technique

Using the proper squeegeeing technique is essential for a successful installation of tints and decals on your vehicle. Whether you're applying tints or decals, the following step-by-step guide will help you achieve a smooth, bubble-free result:

Proper Squeegeeing Technique

Use a Squeegee:

  • Hold the squeegee at a 45-degree angle.
  • Gently press the squeegee and move it towards the edges in a sweeping motion.
  • Exert even pressure to remove excess water and air bubbles.

Work from the Center Outward:

  • Work from the center of the tint/edges towards the edges, moving in horizontal and vertical strokes.
  • Continue to squeegee out any remaining water (Wet Method) and/or  bubbles.


  • Inspect the tint/ decal for any remaining bubbles or imperfections.
  • If any bubbles remain, squeegee any bubbles to the nearest edge.  

General Tips:

Use Adequate Slip Solution ( (Wet Method Installation ONLY):

  • Ensure the surface and tint/decal is sufficiently wet with the slip solution to allow the squeegee to glide smoothly without causing friction.

Apply Even Pressure:

  • Maintain consistent and even pressure while using the squeegee to prevent uneven application and potential damage to the tint or decal.

Work Methodically:

  • Work in small sections, gradually moving from the center towards the edges. This helps in managing air bubbles and achieving a smooth finish.

By following these squeegeeing techniques, you'll increase the likelihood of achieving a professional and flawless result when installing tints and decals on your vehicle.
