More information about the Washaffix self-adhesive vinyl for sublimation and laser printing

  • This vinyl can be printed using 2 different methods: directly with a laser printer or using dye sublimation printing. Also, you can sublimate it either before or after sticking it to the surface of the object to be personalised.
  • Printable using dry toner (both monochrome and colour), white toner, LED technology or flash fusing.
  • It can be applied on rigid surfaces such as ceramic, wood, plastic, glass, and aluminium.
  • Permanent, highly resistant acrylic adhesive.
  • Waterproof and grease repellent.
  • Can be cut with any vinyl cutter.
  • Durable since it does not absorb any water and has a strong adhesive.
  • Dishwasher safe at temperatures below 60ºC
  • 18 months shelf life upon delivery, provided storage, use, and printing conditions are met.
  • In Related Products, you will find the white version of this vinyl in roll format. In addition to it being cheaper, it also makes it easier to personalise larger items. 

THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND

  • If you want to get higher opacity, we recommend using matte white Washaffix vinyl. This will keep the colours of the object from mixing with the colours of the design.
  • If you want to show the colours of the object in combination with the design, you should then use clear Washaffix vinyl. The gloss finish will give it a special touch.
  • Avoid using microwaves on glasses, mugs, or plates personalised with Washaffix.
  • If you’re using a Silhouette Cameo vinyl cutter, the recommended cutting parameters for this vinyl are the following: blade setting (2), speed (2), force (20) and number of passes (1).
  • Using a squeegee when applying the vinyl will help you avoid the formation of air bubbles. You will find some options in Related Products.

How to personalise and apply Washaffix vinyl?

SUBLIMATION BEFORE APPLICATION (CLEAR): RECOMMENDED INSTRUCTIONS AND PARAMETERS

  • Print the design in mirror image, using sublimation paper.
  • Remove the liner from the Washaffix and stick it to protective paper or any other silicone paper. Use a squeegee to avoid air bubbles or wrinkles. Keep the liner for later.
  • Preheat the press to 190ºC.
  • Place the Washaffix vinyl on the press’ lower platen and the printed design on top of it(*). Cover them with another layer of protective paper.
  • Press for 35 seconds, low pressure.
  • Remove the layer of protective paper from the sublimated Washaffix vinyl and reattach it to its liner.
  • With a dry cloth, clean any ink residue that might remain on the vinyl after pressing.
  • Cut the design with a vinyl cutter if possible.
  • When applying the design, simply remove the liner and stick it to the surface you are personalising.

(*) To guarantee a more uniform pressure, you may place a thin board, or something similar, on the press’ lower platen before placing the vinyl.

SUBLIMATION BEFORE APPLICATION (MATTE WHITE): RECOMMENDED INSTRUCTIONS AND PARAMETERS

  • Print the design in mirror image, using sublimation paper.
  • Preheat the press to 200ºC.
  • Place the Washaffix vinyl with its printable side facing up and the printed design against it, so they come in direct contact with each other. Cover them with protective paper.
  • Press for 50 seconds, very heavy pressure (6 bar).
  • Remove the protective paper and the printed Washaffix vinyl.
  • If needed, cut the design with a vinyl cutter, scissors or a cutter.
  • Slightly peel the design off its backing at one end, but enough so that it sticks to the vinyl to begin its application.
  • Gradually place the vinyl on the target surface. Use a felt squeegee to avoid the formation of air bubbles.

SUBLIMATION AFTER APPLICATION: RECOMMENDED INSTRUCTIONS AND PARAMETERS

  • Cut and stick the Washaffix vinyl to the object you want to personalise.
  • If necessary, use heat-resistant tape to protect the parts of the item that may get damaged by heat.
  • Print the design in mirror image, using sublimation paper.
  • Preheat the press to 190ºC.
  • Place the item on the press’ lower platen, with the vinyl to be printed facing up.
  • Place the previously printed design on the vinyl.
  • Press for 35 seconds, medium pressure.
  • Using a protective glove, remove the item with the newly printed vinyl.
  • Remove the paper carefully.

LASER PRINTING

  • You can use any laser printer: standard or white toner, with LED technology or flash fusing.
  • Select the paper type in your printer: “Transparency” or the most suitable option according to the thickness and grammage of this vinyl.
  • Place the Washaffix sheet in the printer tray. We recommend using a multi-purpose tray.
  • Print the design on the vinyl.
  • Cut the outline of the design using scissors or a vinyl cutter.
  • Remove the excess media, leaving on the liner the design you want to stick to the item.
  • Slightly peel the design off its backing at one end, but enough so that it sticks to the vinyl to begin its application.
  • Gradually place the vinyl on the target surface. Use a squeegee to avoid the formation of air bubbles.
