Water slide decal paper for ceramic mug
Decal typically comprises three layers: the color, or image, layer which comprises the decorative design; the covercoat, a clear protective layer, which may incorporate a low-melting glass; and the backing paper on which the design is printed by screeing printing or lithography. There are various methods of transferring the design while removing the backing-paper, some of which are suited to machine application.
The decal method is often used for the decoration of ceramic. A special paper is used but the ceramic colours cannot be printed directly and the actual printing is done in varnish and the color then dusted on. The decal is placed colored side-down on the sized ware, rubbed firmly, and the paper then sponged off.
Place the ceramic decal in a shallow pan (such as a developing tray) of warm water and soak for about 5-10 seconds, or until the color layer begins to slide from the backing paper. The ceramic decal / glass decal is now ready to be applied to the item to be decorated.
Place the ceramic decal over the area to be decorated (face-up), and slip out the backing paper from underneath.
Adjust the position of the ceramic decal decal on the item and remove water using a rubber squeegee or damp sponge. This is accomplished by stroking from the center of the ceramic decal been smoothed out.
For best results, allow decorated ware to dry before firing.
The recommended firing temperatures for our ceramic decals / glass decals are as follows; CERAMIC 1400-1500ºF; .These temperatures are by no means absolutes and we therefore suggest that you request samples to try on your ware under your conditions.
Under optimum conditions, the firing cycle should be slow and well ventilated, with the first 800ºF being the most critical.
