Default Polycoating for white shirts and polyester

So I got a bottle of the polycoating for white and polyester garments, but how long to heat-press before and after printing?
Not really keen on trying polyester under it and end up with a sheet of plastic...

Polyester is fine, it's polypropylene you have to stay away from

Hi Ray,

The times are similar to the pre-coating: dry for 30'' and fix for 2'30'' at 160 oC (320F). Depending on the polyester you are using, you may need to spray a little bit more amount than what you normally spray onto dark garments; in this case, you may need to leave the polyester to dry for 5''-10'' more. If you are printing on white cotton, then you don't need to spray more and you can fix the t-shirt for 2' only. Hope this helps.

K.

Thanks, Kostas and Dekzion.

I will start experimenting with this. It really opens up the printing possibilities.

If you intend to print on polyester go straight for dye-subbing it. there is nothing better regarding no 'hand' to it or photographic quality that is impossible to wash out

Thanks, but I don't think I will do many. It's for when somebody wants a sports shirt. Plus, I only have a DTG printer...
