How to fix problems with applying film free waterslide decal paper

BY IN Comments Off on How to fix problems with applying film free waterslide decal paper

Most problems can happen because the temperature applied was too low or there were some air bubbles/excess water left underneath. You can fix the problems by doing the following:
* get rid of excess water and air bubbles underneath the decal film by using a proper squeegee
* dry the decal at a low temperature (i.e. 100C for 30seconds) after you have applied the film free decal to your item
* if you don’t see any bubbles or faulty spots, apply heat of at least 200C for 3 minutes or longer using a heat gun all over the decal (making sure no spots are missed)
* higher temperatures will give you better results, so apply heat until the decal film becomes slightly yellow (but stop heating before the film gets burnt)
