FOIL APPLICATION
  • Foil is applied colored side up and aluminum looking (dull) side down. Rub foil with eraser immediately after appli- cation to help remove any wrinkles. Allow transfer to cool completely (20 to 30 seconds) after application before removal of foil sheet. Pull foil sheet off slowly.
  • It can be helpful to tint the 3801LF Foil Adhesive, to the color of the foil being applied, with a small amount of con- ventional plastisol. This process will help to keep small pinholes in the applied foil film from being noticeable. As example: Use a few grams of yellow or gold plastisol in the 3801LF Adhesive when using gold foil. Use a few grams of black or gray plastisol in the 3801LF Adhesive when using silver foil.
APPLICATION TEMPERATURE
  • 300°F to 325°F (149°C to 163°C). Try lower temperature first for best results.

  • 10-15 Seconds
APPLICATION PRESSURE
  • T-Shirts = Medium (40lbs.) Sweatshirts = Medium to Heavy (40lbs. to 60lbs)
  • The brightest foil effect will result when the foil is first removed. To achieve a textured matte finish foil, re-seal the garment or hat in the transfer press for 3-4 seconds after the foil carrier film has been removed.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION
  • For best durability of the foil after it is applied, it is recommended that the garment be hand washed or machine washed (delicate cycle) inside out and line or air dried. Do not use bleach. Do not iron printed area.
