How Does Window Tingting Develop?

2016-06-02 11:43 posted in Window Tinting

The first instance of window tinting as we know it stems from America around the time of World War II and the years following.  One of the more popular tinting manufacturers were EZ Eye factory tint.  You could find this tint sometimes on the ’40 Mercury Romango from Detroit, or later, the ’58 Chevy Impala.

If you couldn’t get the windows tinted from the factory, some people took a swing at tinting at home for the first time.  However, this is before window film was invented, so they used spray-on tinting.  The result was a dark and usually uneven tint, so when window film was invented in 1966, it changed the window-tinting game.

The film started off as “dye-based,” which had poor heat rejection, and would absorb heat into the vehicle, rather than reflect it back.  It also had a tendency of turning purple and bubbly in the sun, and didn’t have a very long lifespan.

A second generation of window film emerged in the early nineties. This film was constructed of metal integrated with dye. This “hybrid” film contained dye to absorb heat and metallic particles to reflect the sun’s rays, and therefore heat. It approached 50% heat reduction. The major drawback with metallized films is interference with electronic devices like GPS and sometimes radio.

The newest edition to the window tinting industry is ceramic films.  These are the top of the line. They last a lifetime or longer, reject heat and UV rays, and do not interfere with electronics.  We have come a long way in the window tinting world, and are only coming up with new and exciting ways to improve upon our product!

So, buy window film,some tint tools, then start to tint your car by yourself!

Why There are so Many Types of Squeegee?

2016-05-18 15:22 posted in About Squeegee

Why there are so many kinds of squeegee?Have you ever wondered this question or how to choose the correct one you’re your project needs? Here are some tips on how to choose the right squeegee for your style or a particular project:

1. Shapes
Squeegee blades come in different shapes and it is very important to choose the right shape for the job to get the best result:

a, V-Shaped (single or double-bevel): This shape is used for printing on uneven or cylindrical-shaped substrates

b,Square (also called Straight Edge): The most often used by screen printers is square-edge squeegee blade. It works well for standard or regular ink applications

c,Round (or ball nose): The round blade is used for a heavy deposit when printing special-effects inks. The round shape of the blade passes more ink through the screen and is often used for printing gel or puff inks

2. Handles
A squeegee consists of two parts: the blade and the blade holder. It may seem like a simple design or unimportant, but the blade holder comes in different shapes and materials each designed for different functions.

For manual screen printing, for example, the holder essentially becomes the handle of the squeegee. It is important how the handle feels to the printer when holding the squeegee, especially after several hours of printing.

Wood, aluminum or plastic are the most popular materials used for handles and each of these materials have its fans. For example, some love the organic feel of the wooden handles and the warmth of wood. Conversely, fans of plastic or aluminum like their easy-to-clean properties. Squeegees with aluminum or metal holders are generally used with automatic printing machines, where the blades can be replaced.

Some handles that are designed to allow blade replacement so be sure to check how easily the replacement can be made. Some designs feature easy to undo clips while others have to be screwed in place for example.

Another consideration when choosing handles is the shape. Ergonomic handles are on the market today that help combat fatigue and stress-related, repetitive injuries. Handles also come in different heights, most commonly are 4- and 5-inch widths depending on whether you have large or small hands.

3. Durometer
As a rule, squeegee blades are now made of polyurethane vs. rubber. Durometer is a measure of the squeegee blade’s hardness. A lower the value the softer the blade. For example:50-60 durometer indicates a soft squeegee;60-70 durometer is a medium-hard edge;70-80 durometer indicates a hard blade

Like the blade’s shape, the different durometers also determine the amount of ink that is deposited on the fabric. The soft blade deposits more ink than the hard blade. Here are some basic rules of thumb: For general projects, printers usually prefer a hardness of around 70-75 durometer;A 55 durometer (soft) blade would be good for printing gels and puff inks, as these types of ink require heavier deposits. A soft blade also may be used to lay down more ink on heavily textured fabrics;An 80 durometer blade is great for printing a fine, detailed print or four-color process prints

4. Composite Blades
To take a simple tool and make it even more useful, there are squeegees with composite blades. This means two or more blades of differing durometers can be either stacked or sandwiched together. For example, a 70/90/70 composite blade is made up of a hard blade wedged between two softer ones. The idea is that the hard blade supports the squeegee, whereas the softer blades still allow for a good amount of ink to be deposited.

In the end, printing preferences and job types determine whether the screen printer chooses a single or a composite blade.

We suggest you try the different squeegee blades and see if the high-tech ones are better suited to your printing style.

5. Length
Lastly, it is important to determine the length of the squeegee needed for the screen. Many squeegees can be purchased by the inch. Be sure the screen’s width and design’s width are taken into account when choosing the right squeegee for each job.

How to Select An Excellent Squeegee for Your Tingting Work?

2016-05-06 14:40 posted in About Squeegee

Of all the components of window tinting,squeegee is one of the most important tinting tools.

Squeegees are made from 3 basic types of materials: Rubber, Neoprene, and Polyurethane. The least expensive Squeegees available are those constructed of natural rubber. While commonly used in the education part of the screen printing industry, rubber tends to suffer from poor abrasion resistance and poor resistance to strong solvents. Neoprene, a synthetic rubber compound made from a chroline derivative of acetylene, is also a popular Squeegee material. Neoprene is slightly more expensive than natural rubber, and it offers better chemical and abrasion resistance.

Polyurethane, a syntethic plastic material, is often used to make Squeegee designed for extended use, and for automatic and semi-automatic equipment. While urethane is more expensive than rubber or neoprene, it offers a much better resistance to both physical and chemical abrasion. Most urethanes used in the screen printing industry are MDI based Polyester. The reason being the MDI urethanes offers the best abrasion resistance of any urethane on the market. Polyurethane Squeegees are the most popular of all Squeegees. They are cast in liquid form in open molds, close molds or centrifuges. The material is a thermoset plastic, and cures when exposed to heat for a period of time. The material is made in sheets or individual sections, and then cut to size for shipping. The most common sizes are the following: 3/8 x 2 for general Screen printing(graphics, textile, glass, electronics), 3/16 x 1 for bottle, cd, and high speed automatic presses.

Durometer:When selecting a Squeegee, the first task is to determine your desired durometer, or hardness. The durometer is the value that reflects the physical hardness of the Squeegee material. The Squeegee durometer values from 50A to 95A. This is measured by a durometer gauge, and measured based on standards established by ASTM procedures. (American Standard Testing materials) . For the sake of simplicity, we will call soft - 60A, medium - 70A, and 80A - a hard Squeegee, and 90A -extra hard. Plastics/Squeegees are measured in various scales of hardness. Shore A scale is the most widely used for measuring Squeegee material. The values are based on readings There are many different styles of durometer gauges available on the market. All of the durometer gauges on the market have a dial indicator with a small needle head that measures the hardness of the Squeegee. A durometer gauge is identical to a tension meter. Like a tension meter, a durometer gauge should be calibrated on a regular basis. (1 time per year). The small needle head penetrates into the material, and indicates the hardness of the rubber.

How to Extend the Life of Your Wiper Blades?

2016-04-22 15:23 posted in About Scraper

Common Wiper Problems:

1, Streaking occurs when the rubber squeegee dries, hardens and cracks. It can also be caused by tree sap, road tar and other foreign substances collected on either the glass or the blade.

2, Skipping occurs when the blade develops a curvature from lack of use (e.g. left in the ‘parked position’ for an extended length of time).

3,Wearing occurs with extensive use and is when the rubber edges are rounded instead of squared.

4,Splitting is caused when the sun’s ultraviolet rays penetrate the rubber squeegee, causing it to breakdown and separate from the frame.

5,Bent Refill Vertebra and Bent Frames cause inconsistent contact with the glass surface, creating streaking or skipping.

In order to extend your wiper's life,you should do take mesures as the following:

1,Clean your windshield every time you fill your gas tank.

2,Gently wipe the rubber squeegee with a damp paper towel to remove any loose dirt or oil.

3,Never use your windshield wipers to de-ice your windshield. Instead, either use an ice scraper or use your defroster to melt snow and ice.

4,Pull your wiper blades away from the windshield during winter months to prevent ice build up on the rubber squeegee and to prevent them from sticking to the windshield.

Efficient wiper blades are as important to a vehicle’s safe operation as clean oil and good tires. So remember to change your wiper blades at least once a year, to inspect them frequently for wear and tear and to enjoy the view!

Maintaining Your Squeegee--Suggestions from A Professional Tinter

2016-04-09 11:04 posted in About Squeegee

We all know that damaged squeegee rubber is number 1 cause for glass streaks, smears and hazing. even if you have the best window cleaning skills, you still can not produce absolute window glass clarity if you don't have good quality rubber in your squeegee.

here's 4 helpful tips on how you can get the best results from your squeegee rubber and reduce streaks:

1. replace squeegee rubber often
the rubber edge that makes contact with the glass should be as square as possible.
squeegee rubber will dull and it's edge will round with continued use. this is o.k.... for a while but, a rounded edge will require you to add more contact pressure to glass in order to completely remove window cleaning solution.
and, will leave "rubber smear" when in contact with dry glass. like when you are using overlapping squeegee strokes.
i've examined some of my diy customer's squeegee rubbers who have asked me about why their window cleaning attempts were leaving so many streaks.
usually, i'm shocked to see how round their squeegee rubber is... they should have replaced the rubber much, much earlier!

to get the best window washing results, examine squeegee rubber edge and replace at the first sign of: rounding,
abrasions and worn corners.In my window cleaning business, i will replace my squeegee rubber as much as once or even twice a day. my reputation depends greatly upon achieving the highest quality window cleaning clarity for my customers.
simply put, i don't ever risk using worn or rounded squeegee rubber on the job.

2. flip your squeegee rubber. there's 2 usable sides!
flip or replace squeegee rubber:
a) stretch squeegee rubber out end of channel (if you have a squeegee handle that holds rubber in place with "teeth", then you'll have to remove channel completely off handle before beginning)
b) remove clip from one end of rubber and save it in your tool box
c) turn over squeegee rubber or replace
d) insert rubber into squeegee channel with new or unused edge facing glass

3. remove 1 of the 2 channel clips or plugs... permanently!
unless it's a "clipless" design, your squeegee will have either brass, stainless steel, or plastic clips / plugs at each end of the squeegees channel. squeegees come with 2 clips. you can get rid of 1. this will allow squeegee rubber to lay more naturally in squeegee channel and will produce a better window cleaning result.
an exception to the 1 clip rule: if you are using a sorbo squeegee channel with 40 degree ends instead of a standard 90 degree channel end, you might want to continue using both clips due to the nature of it's design.
the problem with using 2 clips or plugs is it's difficult to get the squeegee rubber to lay flat... it either gets stretched too tight and will "bow-up" at ends or will be too loose and have a "warble" in the middle. either way, you'll have a greater chance of leaving streaks on glass.
to solve this problem, get rid of 1 channel clip. save the clip. clips and plugs will eventually wear out and you'll be glad to have your saved spare clip handy.

4. cut off torn squeegee rubber ends
depending on the abrasive quality of the window framework, the squeegee rubbers' "tip and tail" will wear at different speeds. and since tips and tails will wear much faster than the rest of the squeegee rubber, you'll want to consider fixing the tips rather than throwing the squeegee rubber away...
here's how to cut off rubber ends:
a) stretch squeegee rubber out end of channel (if you have a squeegee handle that holds rubber in place with "teeth", then you'll have to remove channel completely off handle before beginning)
b) remove clips from rubber ends
c) place rubber flat on an appropriate cutting surface
d) use glass scraper or razor blade and cut off damaged ends. make sure to cut rubber ends to a square 90 degree edge. and, don't cut off too much; squeegee rubber must still have enough length to fit entire length of squeegee channel.
e) place 1 clip back on 1 end of rubber.

f) insert rubber into squeegee channel. finish by placing channel back into squeegee handle

Final thoughts:

with proper maintenance, you can get a lot of mileage from your squeegee rubbers by trimming rubber ends and flipping rubber when needed. but, when main rubber edge becomes worn and optimum window cleaning results can no longer be achieved, it's a smart move to replace squeegee rubber to give your customers the 100% satisfaction of picture perfect windows they deserve.
