Transfer Paper Application


               
Transfer application instructions:
  1. Cut and measure the plastic you intend to put the transfer on.

  2. Cut a piece of coloring paper slightly smaller than the plastic.

  3. Place the plastic into your oven and heat to its optimum temperature.

  4. When the optimum temperature is reached, remove the plastic from the oven and place on a hard flat surface.

  5. Place the coloring paper image side down on the hot plastic. Take care to prevent bubbles and wrinkles by using thermal gloves and very slight pressure.

  6. Remove the coloring paper by peeling from the plastic after 15 - 30 seconds. The actual coloring process takes place at a temperature of 338 to 428 degrees F.

  7. The plastic may be returned to the oven if necessary.

  8. The plastic may now be formed in the usual manner. Take care to not over stretch the plastic, as this will distort the color image.

This quick and easy method of coloring keeps the surface homogeneous and the color can not be scratched off. There are no changes in the vacuum forming process.

Coloring paper will stick to the plastic if it is overheated or if the paper is left in contact with the plastic for an excessive amount of time.

Remove the coloring paper before vacuuming the thermoplastic.

Store papers in a dry and cool place.
