This week's topic is quite dynamic, previously we had dealt with the sublimation of mugs a little, but now we will detail the process more, and what we must take into account when doing it. As well as some secrets for you to take advantage of your machine.
Like the sublimation of t-shirts, this process is influenced by temperature, pressure and time, and it can happen to us, like t-shirts, that exceeding temperature or time burns our surface, and in some cases excess pressure the deformed
- How do we sublimate the mugs?
1. You must measure the pressure of your machine, it must be a medium pressure. If the pressure is too strong, it can damage the resistance, and if it is too low, you may not get the desired result. The heating elements of cups come according to the capacity of these, that is, 11oz, 10oz, etc. but many machines have a regulator, so they can adapt your iron for smaller or larger sizes
2. Turn on your machine, regulate the temperature and time according to what you are going to sublimate:
- Cups; 200°C for 180 seconds
- magic cups; 200°C for 180 seconds
- Aluminum thermos: 180°C for 60 seconds
- Aluminum Jars: 200°C for 100 seconds
- Frosted cups and mugs: 18 0°C for 60 seconds
Take into account that the thermos, and jars that have plastic lids, we must remove it at the time of sublimation.
3.Place a cup, jug, etc. that you are not going to sublimate while the machine reaches the desired temperature, this to avoid deformations.
4. Prepare your cup, mug or thermos by placing the image and placing thermal tape on the edges to prevent it from moving.
5.Put the mug inside and do the sublimation.
Now we will answer some questions regarding the equipment:
- Is it true that I need a different resistance for each thermos/cup?
This would be ideal, because each resistance has different scopes regarding length and adjustment level, but you can use the 11oz resistance, to sublimate some types of thermos by regulating your machine.
- Is there a 2 in 1 model, combined with other pieces?
Yes, there is a 2-in-1 model, which includes several resistances or the 2-in-1 model that is combined with a cap/cup or cap/t-shirt, you should check with your supplier to see if it is available.
- What other models exist?
We have a 2-in-1 model, to work two cups at the same time, we also have a 5-in-1 model to work 5 cups in 1, among other models. You also have the automatic model.
- What are the other types of cups?
The other resistors are:
- 12oz Conical
- 17oz Conical
We hope we have clarified your doubts regarding these teams, and that you can work on your projects getting the most out of them.
