But, What IS it?:  

 Heatrans-permaslide (hettrans purmeslid) n. 1.a permanent, durable, low profile water transfer with a removable pre-mask. 2.Sometimes printed in lithography for fine detail or screen printed for outdoor durability


Originally produced as an industrial marking, Perma-slide is now also available as a consumer applied marking with good tolerance to application variables and very long shelf life. This is a special water-slide decal which has a carrier film (pre-mask) that can be easily removed after the decal has been applied and dried. It leaves behind a low profile (12microns thick), highly resolved graphic image. It appears to have been printed directly on the surface. It is almost impossible to see it was applied as a decal as there is no telltale outline, halo, or film evidence around the marking. The pre-mask allows many small and individual design elements to be applied at the same time and has replaced ceramic decals in may cases reducing expensive energy cost to fire a kiln. It can also be heat cured for added durability on glass, metal, ceramic and many other surfaces. When properly cured the marking is more durable than a vinyl label. It is permanent and safe for dishwasher or outdoor use. It can be removed, if desired, with a special solvent like acetone
