The squeegees range in size from a 1.25-inch detail squeegee to a full 12-inch squeegee. Geek Wraps also offers a double-edge squeegee for installing perforated window film vinyl in four-inch, six-inch and eight-inch sizes.

In addition to squeegees, Geek Wrap is also offering their vehicle wrap training videos free on their website.

Web Tools
Solutia has developed a new way to view its products. The St. Louis-based company is debuting its new decorative film viewer on its website. The website allows users to try out different patterns, frosts, textures and specialty films to see what look appeals to their aesthetic. These films can be viewed close-up or in an application. The tool was originally designed to allow architects and designers the option of viewing what the product will look like installed.

Shed Some Light
Roland DGA Corp., based in Irvine, Calif., has debuted a Glossy Backlit Film and Matte Backlit Film. The 8-mil films are used in lightboxes to draw attention to advertising messages and have a Dmax rating of 2.2.

Both lines are available in North and South America and can be ordered in 100-foot length rolls with either 54 or 60-inch widths. According to Roland, the films are an effective means of advertising whether the lightbox is turned on or off and can print and dry quickly.
