Heatrans-permaslide (het`trans pur`me`slid)
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.
But, What IS it?: Originally produced as an industrial marking, Heatrans-Permaslide™ 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. 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.
Superior Performance: More durable than vinyl label or marking films:
ASTM 3359 B: 5B rating Low Profile: Only 12 microns thick.
