Metalic Application

Application Guidelines

  • Cut your text or design in reverse and weed out excess film.
  • Set your heat press to 140°C to 150°C.
  • Apply medium and even pressure across your transfer.
  • Press for 10-15 seconds.
  • Peel the release liner when it is warm / cool, then press directly onto the transfer for 3 to 5 seconds.

NB: All information is given as guideline. We always recommend that you perform a test cut and print prior to production. Not suitable for Nylon or coated fabrics.

Sublimation on Heatflex

  • Cut out your design (the full design) in mirror.  Weed out the excess heatflex.
  • Ensure the design you are going to sublimation print over the heat transfer, is sized correctly and in printed reverse, so your “images” line up as to how you wish them to be seen. Sublimation print your design onto your sublimation paper. If you need to trim round your sublimation paper to aide alignment later in the process, do this now. If you have a cutter, you can cut our the design. (print and cut)
  • Pre-press your garment if required.
  • Place the weeded transfer onto your garment (now with your design facing you) and align as necessary.
  • Heat press the transfer with a medium even pressure at 150C for 5 seconds, then peel the PET release liner hot / warm / cool. Alternatively set your press to 180C, and “tack” the transfer in place for 2 seconds.
  • Carefully align your sublimation paper over the transfer (print side down) and tape down a couple of the edges of your paper with heat resistant tape or application tape, to prevent miss-alignment when your press closes or to prevent lifting of the paper when your heat press rises.
  • Heat press at 180C for 20 seconds
  • Remove the Sublimation paper.
  • The above guidelines are tested on our heat press range and epson sublimation printers.
  • This application is not suitable with a household iron.
