Product information

Decal is a short form of English decalcomania "to transmit") is the common name for wet sliding pictures in model making. They are mostly used for lettering on models that are too fine or complex to paint or print. Decals have to be moistened briefly before being applied to the model in order to activate the adhesive layer on which they are printed.

So far, decals have been very laboriously produced by screen printing or with the help of expensive solvent printers. The thermal transfer printers, like at home, cannot print white and do not deliver opaque colors.

UV-curing ink (UV printing for short) lies on the medium and does not penetrate the film. This makes the pressure appear a little raised and can be felt. The ink does not dry but is hardened with UV light. A water-cooled UV lamp is built into the printer for this purpose, which irradiates the ink with UV light during the printing process and thereby hardens it.

The print quality is excellent, the white coverage is almost perfect and significantly higher than in eco-solvent printing. UV prints are purely manual work, because each sheet has to be placed and fixed individually. But the result is absolute premium class!

The standard film for water slide films in UV printing has a thickness of only 7 µm, making it ultra-thin. For comparison: normal adhesive foils have a thickness between 70 µm and 150 µm.

Brief instructions for applying decals:
The decals have to be cut first. A fresh Stanley knife would be ideal for this, but sharp scissors / nail scissors are also suitable. It is important that the film has a smooth cut edge, otherwise it will stand out at the end and might even peel off.

Then the snipplets are held in drinking water for 1-2 seconds using tweezers and then transferred to the model.

The surface should be clean and free of grease beforehand. Place the blank where you want it and carefully pull away the backing paper. A brush or cotton swab will help hold the film in place.

The color on our models is waterproof! As soon as the wet decals have been pushed into position, let them dry for about 10-15 minutes.

As a rule, no further processing is necessary, the usual clear coat painting is not necessary because the foils are so thin. In the case of matt or silk matt surfaces, it may be necessary to treat the decals that have been placed with a suitable fixer/firmer (decals fix).
