Koozies are typically made from neoprene. You can try the Thermoflex, however I have not personally heat applied it to neoprene.

The key is to make sure that you create a flat surface when applying. Print Perfect (rubber) pads will work very well for this.

If the above suggestions don't work, then the material is probably too smooth for anything that can be used with fabric as fabric is rougher. I think the koozies should work with vinyl though.

In that case, I would try mutli-surface paper for hard and smooth surfaces. But you'd have to find a spray to coat the image after it's been transferred to prevent scratching.

This almost does not seam worth it unless you are just trying to do a couple samples. Koozies are such a low cost item. We are able screen print 4 at one time and offer 250 for $147.50

Two suggestions.
1. Their are two main koozies... Scuba Foam and real neoprene. If you are going to heat press I suggest you use the neoprene when subjecting to high heat.

2. If you heat press cheaper koozies you may run into dye migration issues.
