Co-poly and Polypro Plastic

      Transfer Application

  1. Measure the piece of plastic you intend to use; cut the heat transfer paper to the appropriate size.

  2. Wipe plastic and apply a release agent directly to the cool plastic, following manufacturer's instructions.

  3. Wipe plastic with a dry cloth to remove any dust or debris. 

  4. Apply a second, light coat of release agent. Thinner plastics and polyethylenes may require a more liberal application of release agent to both plastic and transfer paper. 

  5. Heat plastic to optimum temperature, it is recommended that you pre-heat your oven before putting the plastic inside.

  6. Use an infrared thermometer to check the surface temperature.

  7. When the optimum surface temperature is reached (325*F to 350*F), remove the plastic from the oven.

  8. Place the heat transfer paper, image side down on the hot plastic. Be sure to smooth out any bubbles or wrinkles, using thermal gloves.

  9. The plastic may be returned to the oven, if necessary to maintain temperature. After 20 seconds, remove the heat transfer paper from the plastic by lifting a corner of the paper to ensure the imagine full transferred to the plastic. 

  10. Remove the plastic and form over the model. Take care not to over-stretch the plastic, as this will distort the color and image.

 

*Tip: Air pockets and surface irregularities may cause bare or light spots on the transfer. If this happens, simply re-apply the transfer paper and rub with firm pressure for a few seconds, then remove.
