PolySatin is a 2-Part, water-based, sublimation coating, which provides a hard, scratch-resistant, semi-gloss finish for ceramic mugs, tile, stone, and wood.
Step 3:Apply thin, even coat of PolySatin mixture with bristle brush, Preval sprayer, or gravity-feed sprayer like the one pictured below. Mixture can be thinned with 10% water for use with gravity-feed sprayer. Set air compressor for between 25 and 35 PSI. Apply enough Poly mixture to allow the coating to flow together smoothly. The coating will look dull and textured if you do not apply enough coating. Clean sprayer and brush with water (do not use soaps or solvents).
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 10 minutes at 400F. Press wood face-up for 3 minutes at 375F. 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.
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.
