Manual application (“waterslide” process)
How does it work ?
1° Check the cleanliness of the glass to decorate
2° Put the decal 30 seconds in a tepid water
3° Take carefully the decal and let the decor separate from its support paper (white paper) and let it slide on the glas.
4° Position the decor on the glas and scrape the decal with a rubber scraper in order to remove the water under the decal.
5° let it dry 12h
7° Fire the decorated glass according to our recommendantions.
The decals are cut in advance and placed in a magazine in the machine. They are taken by suction. Then, the decor is separated from its support thanks to a pre-heated silicon pad and is directly put on the glass.
This process is very precise and very fast : it is recommended for big quantites.
You do not have to let dry the bottle: you can fire it directly, between 490°C and 630°C for decals with enameled inks, and 200°C for decals with organic inks.
Caution : the result can be checked only after the firing.
