Product Description

LICENSE PLATE / SIGN METAL SUBLIMATION

Supplies needed:
- substrate (sub aluminum)                                         - teflon                                 - soft paper towel
- sublimation transfer paper                                       - heat tape

Heat press settings: (darker colors and larger sized pieces require higher temperature and time)
- temperature - 350-365 degrees F                          

- dwell time - 60-75 seconds                       

- pressure - light

 

Note: The recommended settings above may need adjustments for best results.
Settings will vary depending on the heat press brand and model, ink, paper and atmospheric conditions.

2nd Note: The layers of soft paper towel achieve two goals:

1. it helps to distribute the pressure evenly throughout the substrate; 2. it helps to trap ink that is dispersed outside of the edges of the substrate if there is an over print area or full bleed in the artwork.

Layer the press from the bottom pad to the top heat platen as follows:
1. teflon sheet

2. 2-3 layers of soft paper towel (this helps distribute the pressure evenly)
3. sublimation transfer paper (artwork)
4. substrate (sub aluminum)
4. teflon sheet

Steps:
1. Place the metal face down onto the transfer.

2. Tape two ends of the metal to the transfer using the heat tape.
3. Place the transfer and metal in the heat press onto the paper towel (substrate on top of metal)
4. Place the teflon sheet over the transfer and metal.
5. Press the items using the settings listed above.
6. Remove items from the press immediately. Use heat resistant gloves if necessary - the items will be very hot.
7. Tear the transfer in half, opposite of the taped ends.

Tips:
- If the finished product appears scratched, lighten the pressure slightly.

- If the image of the final product appears light, increase the pressure or the dwell time slightly (5-15 seconds).
- If the image on the final product appears blurred, reduce the dwell time slightly (5-15 seconds).
- If the metal appears to have a scratchy finished after sublimating, reduce the pressure.
