CHROMABLAST WORKS BEST ON 100% WHITE COTTON. 

 Heat Press – Transfer Instructions IMPORTANT: The use of a protective Teflon sheet or parchment paper is strongly recommended for ChromaBlast transfer application when using a commercial heat press. The use of this sheet will protect your heat press and eliminate the possibility of ChromaBlast paper curling or moving prior to heat fixation.

  1. Set your heat press to 380 degrees. 380 (get to know your press settings)
  2. Place the garment on the heat press, and position the ChromaBlast paper, with the image facing down, over the garment.
  3. Immediately place a Teflon heat sheet or parchment over the entire transfer.
  4. Press to transfer at 380 (get to know your press settings) for 30 seconds on the heaviest pressure.
  5. After the allotted time, release the press and move the garment away from the heat platen. While still hot, and with an even motion, peel the ChromaBlast paper off the garment (hot peel), and stretch the image area from top to bottom and side to side to reduce the hand on the fabric. Cold peel transfer removal is not recommended.

 

Tips & Instructions

ChromaBlast media is recommended for HOT PEEL transfer only. HOT PEEL –

 While still hot, and with an even motion, peel the ChromaBlast paper off the garment (hot peel), and stretch the image area from top to bottom and side to side to reduce the hand on the fabric.

  • COLD PEEL transfer is not recommended.
  • Calibrating the heat press is recommended to ensure an accurate temperature. For this procedure, temperature test strips are more accurate than the use of infrared temperature guns.
  • trim the non-printed media around the printed image before transferring to garments.
  • If possible, avoid pressing any zippers, buttons or other plastic decorations attached to the garment. The heat and pressure needed to bond the ink to the cotton fabric may cause these to crack or melt.
  • If immediately after pressing, the paper is not easily peeled from the garment and resists removal because the transfer is somewhat tacky, increase the amount of cure time.
  • If immediately after pressing, the transferred image has a slick or shiny appearance, increase the amount of pressure used.
  • Different cotton fabrics will exhibit slightly different results. Please test your fabric before pressing your final design to ensure desired results.
  • Place transfers in an airtight, plastic bag to minimize curl during storage.
