TIP: When cutting your product be gentle and find the sharp tools and right speed, this topsheet is harder to cut then TPU or ptex.
PS: Please before using check if your topsheet has protective film on the outside. We try as often as we can to get topsheet with protective film but some batches do not have it. In this case you can tape the topside of your topsheet with clear application tape (ebay) or contact paper for protection of needed.
Suitable for sublimation:
Recommended max. 160-165 degree C and time cycle of about 5min or so. Allow also good cooling time!
I personally did 140C for about 5min. cooling 5min, Vacuum press, but read more here before you try first time!
Topsheet that is flamed only might weaken the bound after sublimation, so make sure you do it for minimum time and temperature possible in order to keep the good bound to epoxy. Do tests first. Sanded version is bit less sensitive to this. After the cooling it is good idea to flame treat the base/topsheet (PA nylon) to improve adhesion to epoxy.
Sublimation will affect the bounding to epoxy. Since the grinded side will be less affected and present better bounding values, it is recommended to use the grinded side as epoxy side. If topsheet is not grinded, only flamed, do testing and find minimum sublimation time at the temperature! Best graphics results of sublimation are on the smooth glossy side.
