Aluminum Sublimation Instructions
INSTRUCTIONS FOR UV PLUS!
Temp and Time
350 to 365 degrees for 60 to 75 seconds. Darker colors and larger sized pieces require higher temp and time. Use light to light medium pressure for heat pressing.
My normal setting is 355 to 365 degrees for 60 seconds with an auto license plate and light pressure (20lbs). A 24" x 36" print @ 390 for 60 seconds with higher pressure - 24 to 30 lbs
Two Sided White and small items ( dog tags, 2" round) use 350 degrees max, 60 seconds max and VERY light pressure.
Material Set Up
Transfer on bottom facing up for white side. Add transfer on top facing down for brushed aluminum side or the second white side.
Aluminum blank white face down on transfer (clean blank with alcohol before using to remove any impurities)
Place light to medium weight paper on top covering entire item.
Prepress for 5 to 10 seconds if needed to remove moisture
Heat press for 60 to 75 seconds max.
Note: The above information has produced consistent fine art quality results using an Epson printer and Artanium UV Inks. Other inks can cause varying results.
