Check out our PolyGloss video demonstration on youtube: 

The application process is the same for PolySatin. The main difference is PolySatin has a semi-gloss finish.

PolySatin is a 2-Part, Water-Based, Sublimation Coating for Ceramic Mugs, Tile, Stone, and Wood. 

This 64-ounce bottle will coat approximately 960 coffee mugs or 260 square feet

can be applied with common household tools, with easy water clean-up, and without toxic fumes. PolySatin is formulated to "match" the glazed finish of a typical coffee mug and provides a hard, scratch-resistant, semi-gloss finish over coffee mugs, ceramic tile, stone, and wood.

UV Protection: We strongly recommend applying a topcoat of UV protection like Rust-Oleum Crystal Clear Enamel Spray Paint (available at Home Depot and Lowes for $3.76) to ensure long-term color protection.

Rust-Oleum 12-oz Crystal Clear Gloss Spray Paint


Step 1: Add 1 ml of catalyst per ounce of Poly. Stir thoroughly and let mixture settle for a few minutes. Mixture can also be thinned with up to 10% water. Mixture has an 18-hour pot-life, but can be re-catalyzed by adding 1 ml of catalyst to each ounce of remaining mixture.

Step 2:
Clean surface with water. If you are having a hard time getting the coating to cover the entire surface smoothly without “craters” or deep brush stokes, clean surface with rubbing alcohol or degreaser/solvent like Xylol to remove any oil, wax, or silicone left on substrate during the manufacturing process. Wash cleaner off completely with water.

Step 3:
Apply thin, even coat of Poly mixture with foam brush, fine-bristled brush, Preval sprayer, LVLP (low volume, low pressure) or gravity-feed sprayer like the one pictured below. 

WARNING: Wear face mask & eye protection if using a sprayer

Step 4:
Once dry, cure substrate in oven for 15 minutes at 325F.

Step 5:
Since dwell times vary according to substrate and method, here are a few examples to get you started. Press ceramic tiles face-down over foam padding for 9 minutes at 400F. Press wood face-up for 3 minutes at 375F with silicone pad between paper and heat element.Whenever possible, it's best to press substrates face-down over a foam (i.e. Vapor) or felt (i.e. Nomex) pad to get full contact with the sublimation paper.

Here is an example of a PolySatin tile:

Coated substrates have no expiration date. In other words, you can coat a mug today and wait 'til next year to sublimate the mug.
