16x20 PTFE Bottom Table Wrap w/ elastic corners
Foil is applied colored side up and aluminum looking (dull) side down. Rub foil with eraser immediately after application to help remove any wrinkles. Allow transfer to cool completely (20 to 30 seconds) after application before removal of foil sheet. Pull foil sheet off slowly. It can be helpful to tint the 3801LF Foil Adhesive, to the color of the foil being applied, with a small amount of conventional plastisol. This process will help to keep small pinholes in the applied foil film from being noticeable.
138°C to 190°C / 280°F to 375°F. Try lower temperature first for best results.

The brightest foil effect will result when the foil is first removed. To achieve a textured matte finish foil, re-seal the garment or hat in the transfer press for 3-4 seconds after the foil carrier film has been removed.
For best durability of the foil after it is applied, it is recommended that the garment be hand washed or machine washed (delicate cycle) inside out and line or air dried. Do not use bleach. Do not iron printed area.
Two or more colors with foil transfers can be accomplished one of two ways.
- Water Based or Discharge Inks. Foil only sticks to plastisol, so if you want foil to only stick to one part of the design, you can print foil adhesive or plastisol where you want the foil to transfer to and the rest of the design use water based or discharge inks. When transferred, foil will only stick to the plastisol area of the print.
- Foil Resist Additive. Foil resist additive can be added into plastisol at around 15% per weight to resist the foil from adhering to the plastisol ink during the transfer process.
Special Effect and Foil
Foil can be transferred to a plethora of special effects inks. Depending on how the ink is printed, foil will stick to some or all of the design. It will work with puff, high density, granite base, blowout, suede and more. Crumpling the foil also creates a cool effect.
