Siser Sublithin Low Temp was specifically designed for low temperature heat transfers onto polyester textiles that have been colored with dye sublimation inks. The special structure and processing of the material create a barrier to the dyes, preventing the “migration” effect and maintaining thus unaltered the original color.
Please Note: Be sure not to stack or fold the heat pressed garments warm in order to avoid staining of the external surface.
What's the point of Sublithin Low Temp? Why wouldn't I just use Colorprint PU?
Sublithin Low Temp is a specially formulated film that creates a barrier to the sublimated dyes which avoids bleeding.
Can I use an iron to apply the film?
We always recommend using a good, solid, reliable heat press. However if you don't have access to one, then please have a look at this You Tube clip for the best way to apply using an iron.
What blade should I use when cutting this film?
A standard blade will be fine. However for best results, we always recommend the 5025 blade over the 1005 blade.
Do I need to out gas the product before applying the transfer to the garment?
No, unlike most of the other products on the market, Sublithin Low Temp does not require out gassing.
Do I need app tape to apply the film?
Yes you do need app tape. Try our TTD Easy which has been specifically made for Sublithin!
Can I multi-layer the films?
Yes you can.
What are the care instructions?
Please wait 24 hours before the first wash, then you can wash up to 40 degrees. Unfortunately the product can not be dry cleaned. Once the garment is dry, their is no need to turn the garment inside out when ironing as you can iron directly over the film.
Can I apply Sublithin Low Temp to non sublimated garments?
Yes you can, however you lose the advantage of washing up to 60 degrees compared to using Colorprint PU, also the Sublithin Low Temp is a little bit thicker than the Colorprint PU.
If the transfer won't adhere to the garment after you've heat pressed it then please check the following;
1) Do you have the correct heat? 130 degrees is required for Sublithin Low Temp. 2) Do you have the correct time? 15 seconds is required for Sublithin Low Temp. 3) Do you have the correct pressure? A light to medium pressure is required for Sublithin Low Temp. 4) Do you have a reliable heat press? Some heat presses give off an inconsistent heat which can effect the transfer adhering properly. 5) Have you checked for seams, collars or buttons getting in the way? If these things are in the way, then this effects the pressure which in turn effects the transfer adhering correctly. It could be a good idea to invest in some heat transfer pillows as this will help to avoid these things. 6) Are you applying the transfer to a nylon or coated polyestor? If applying to either of these fabrics, the coating can effect the transfer adhering to the garment.
