Instructions for Orthotic Transfer Paper Application

Orthotic Transfer Paper Application Instructions

Our paper is indicated for use on Polypropylene, Co-Polymer and Polyethylene. Note: Silicone spray should be used on all paper and plastic as a parting agent; this will insure the paper does not stick to the plastic. This is especially necessary when applying our transfer paper to Polyethylene you must use Silicone spray or the paper will stick to plastic.

  1. Cut the desired thermoplastic to the size you need and then cut the transfer paper to the same size as your thermoplastic piece.
  2. Spray the transfer paper and plastic with a silicone spray.
  3. Place the thermoplastic into an oven with a temperature between 400-425 degrees Fahrenheit for 8-10 minutes. Note: our PA ink will transfer between 375 and 400 degrees.
  4. When your plastic is ready, place the transfer paper on top of the hot plastic and rub or roll the paper to make sure there are no seams and you have total contact with the plastic.
  5. Place the plastic back in the oven for exactly 30 seconds. This allows the ink to fully discharge from the paper. Note: Failure to leaving the paper on for the full 30 seconds can result in color variations. This is particularly important when doing bilateral jobs so there are no color differences.
  6. After the 30 seconds, remove the transfer paper and proceed to drape or vacuum form over the positive model.
