OUR INSTRUCTIONS ARE BASED ON USING A DK20S, DK3110 AND/OR A COUNTER TOP CONVECTION OVEN. TIMES AND TEMPERATURES WILL VARY DEPENDING ON WHICH EQUIPMENT YOU USE.

Hover transfer under open heat press for 10 seconds to dry excess moisture.

Wraps should last for 300 or more impressions. To ensure the proper life cycle, please closely follow these instructions:

Wraps will fail due to improper torque applied to the fastener. You can ensure appropriate torque, time-after-time, using a mechanized nut driver with an adjustable torque clutch. These devices are relatively inexpensive, $20.00 and up, and easy to use. We recommend the Sears Craftsman 4.8V Pistol cordless screwdriver.

To calibrate the nut driver's torque, simply finger tighten the nut on the wrap, then tighten further, using a maximum of 2 turns, with an ordinary wrench. Adjust the clutch setting on the nut driver to 1 and begin tightening the nut while cycling upward through the torque settings until the nut turns. At this point, set the clutch to 1 number less than the current setting and you're finished.

Another necessary step is to employ a double-redundant mug wrap system, at a minimum, and a triple-redundant system, ideally. That is, if mugs are being imaged back-to-back in a production run, then you need a matching quantity of cool mug wraps to swap in for subsequent runs. So, if you're running 72 mugs at a time, you will need at least 144 total wraps to do the job. It is easier to do this with a triple-redundant system, as the term "cool" is less subjective than with a double-redundant system. Having three-times the necessary wraps is absolutely the best way to preserve them over time.

When a hot wrap is fastened to a mug it causes the material to irreversibly stretch. As the material expands it puts undo force on the glue bindings, which will eventually come loose. Further, it is a bad idea to subject the image to transient heat before transfer.

Should your wrap come apart at a glue binding, you can re-secure it with automotive heat-resistant gasket glue. Beware of the rather lengthy setting time of 1 week for the repair to fully cure.

The fastener will permanently seize if it is not lubricated properly. Lubrication of the threaded shaft is required before you use it for the first time and periodically thereafter. We recommend heat-resistant bearing grease with a colored (usually white, red or green) tracer. The colored tracer provides a visual verification that the grease is still intact.
