ASB Regular

ASB Regular is a transparent liquid chemical with excellent Film adhesion properties. It is sprayed on the product on which the Water Transfer is to be done. Here are the steps on how to use ASB regular :

  1. Sand the part with 600 grit sandpaper properly. 

  2. Apply ASB base coat on the part with spray gun. Mix with 25% PU thinner to reduce viscosity of ASB. Gun pressure should be 25 PSI. 

  3. Let ASB dry for 30 mins. Now use NC paint. Mix NC paint 100ml with NC Thinner 120ml. Spray that with gun pressure 30PSI. 

  4. Let the paint dry for 30-40 mins. Proceed towards dipping.

  5. PU Paint can also be used instead of NC paint, however dipping window narrows down to just 3-4 hours. In order to increase the dipping window, spray ASB regular on the product with PU paint as soon as PU paint dries. This increases the dipping window to 30 days.

Stick Spray Activator

We have developed our own formula to dissolve the WTP films easily while retaining the colours of the design. Most local activators carry strong solvents that are smelly- but not ours, we have minimized the odor released from these sprays.

  1. Dissolving time for the film is 40 seconds at 30 degrees celsius water temperature, after which the Stick Spray is sprayed.

  2. Keep the gun pressure of 18 PSI or 1.5 Bar while spraying this Activator for best results.
