POLAR CAMEL WATER BOTTLE SUBLIMATION - MUG PRESS AND CONVECTION OVEN


There are a few important things to know about the Polar Camel beverage
holders before you sublimate. First the water bottles are similar to all
other sublimated products in that the transfer must make direct contact with
the surface of the water bottle and reach about 380 degrees before sublimation
will occur.
Secondly the Polar Camel needs to have a poly-coating in order to accept the
sublimation ink. Optimal image quality will be achieved using Polar Camels
specifically designed for sublimation.

There are 3 methods of sublimating this product - in a mug press in an oven
using shrink wrap or a silicone wrap. Scroll for all methods.

USING A MUG PRESS:

Note: Because not all mug presses are created equally the dwell time in a
press can vary. The settings below are based on a GKDK3 mug press from George
Knight.

2nd Note: Be sure that the artwork does not go beyond the size limits of the
mug press.

3rd Note: Because of the gap where the mug press closes you will not be able
to have the artwork wrap around the entire beverage holder.

Supplies needed:
- sublimatable substrate (water bottle)
- sublimation transfer
- scratch paper
- heat tape

Mug heat press settings:
- temperature - 380 degrees F
- dwell time - 1 - 1:15 minutes
- pressure - light to medium

Steps:
1. Remove the top of the water bottle
2. Position the substrate onto the transfer.
3. Tape two ends of the transfer allowing for the gap in the mug press where
it will close.
4. Wrap a piece of scratch paper around the transfer and water bottle taping
if necessary.
5. Center the water bottle in the mug press.
6. Close the mug press using the heat press settings above.
7. Remove items from the press immediately. Use heat resistant gloves if
necessary - the items will be very hot.
8. Remove transfer and scratch paper.

Tips:
- If the image of the final product appears light increase the pressure or
the dwell time slightly (10-15 seconds).
- If the image on the final product appears blurred or substrate appears
yellowed reduce the dwell time slightly (10-15 seconds).
- Too much pressure can cause trapped moisture in the paper to "jet" away
pulling ink with it in a spiked-peaked formation. To avoid this reduce the
pressure.
- Take care when applying pressure as too much press can cause the water
bottle to bend slightly.


IN A CONVECTION OVEN (with Silicone Wrap - MGWRP6):

Note: Because not all ovens are created equally the dwell time in an oven can
range from 6:30 to 7:30 minutes. Convection oven is recommended. Settings will
vary depending on the oven brand and model ink and paper and atmospheric
conditions.

2nd Note: Be sure that the artwork does not go beyond the size limits of the
wrap.

Supplies needed:
- sublimatable substrate (polar camel)
- sublimation transfer
- scratch paper
- Silcone Wrap (MGWRP6)
- heat tape
- convection oven

Oven settings:
- temperature - 380-400 degrees F
- dwell time - 6:30 to 7:30 minutes
- pressure - light to medium

STEPS:
1. Position transfer onto the substrate using heat tape to secure the transfer
to the substrate.
2. Cut a piece of scratch paper to tape over your artwork transfer this
protects your wrap from ink.
3. Use the silicone wrap to secure the transfer to the Polar Camel start
wrapping the Polar Camel by stretching and rolling the silicone over top of
itself. Make sure to start wrap in a non artwork area to prevent a line in
your artwork.
4. Put a piece of heat tape around silicone wrapped Polar Camel to secure
wrap.
5. Place Polar Camel in oven with recommended settings listed above.
6. Halfway through the cook time open the oven and turn the Polar Camel 180
degrees. This allows for even heating.
6. Pull from oven and remove wrap and paper. Caution contents will be hot
use heat resistant gloves for safety.


Tips:
- If the image of the final product appears light increase the pressure or
the dwell time slightly (30-45 seconds).
- If the image on the final product appears blurred or substrate appears
yellowed or has brown spots reduce the dwell time slightly (30-45 seconds).


IN A CONVECTION OVEN (with Shrink Wrap):

Note: Because not all ovens are created equally the dwell time in an oven can
range from 5:30 to 6:30 minutes. Convection oven is recommended.Settings will
vary depending on the oven brand and model ink and paper and atmospheric
conditions.

2nd Note: If using a table-top convection oven the water bottle will need to
be laid down on it's side as it will not fit in the oven standing up.

Supplies needed:
- sublimatable substrate (polar camel)
- sublimation transfer
- Shrink Wrap
- heat gun (to preshrink the shrink wrap)
- heat tape
- convection oven

Oven settings:
- temperature - 380 degrees F
- dwell time - 4:30 to 5:30 minutes

STEPS:
1. Position transfer onto the substrate using heat tape to secure the transfer
to the substrate.
2. Place substrate and transfer into the shrink wrap sleeve.
3. Using the heat gun carefully preshrink the wrap. It does not need to be
completely shrunk as it will continue to shrink in the oven.
5. Place Polar Camel in oven with recommended settings listed above.
6. Halfway through the cook time open the oven and turn the Polar Camel 180
degrees. This allows for even heating.
7. Pull from oven and remove wrap and paper. Caution contents will be hot
use heat resistant gloves for safety.


Tips:
- If the image of the final product appears light increase the pressure or
the dwell time slightly (30-45 seconds).
- If the image on the final product appears blurred or substrate appears
yellowed or has brown spots reduce the dwell time slightly (30-45 seconds).
