What squeegee do you use for contravision / perforated vinyl on vehicles?

Good day all,

What squeegee do you use for contravision / perforated vinyl on vehicles?

I get occasionally air trapped (mainly on curved glass) and several bubbles are raised, need to pinch with knife to release air.

I no longer panic about the application marks as they go away.

Please share you installation technique, tips and tricks .

Thanks

Just to be clear, you get air trapped in perforated vinyl? :awkward: :smiles:
or do you mean you laminate contravision and get air trapped?

We use a teflon squeegee. Low friction, maximum pressure.
Still get a few raised bubbles here and there in the laminate, specially when doing the job on my own, but I dont really worry too much about them any more.
