Sublimating with HIX is a “SNAP” with Snap Wraps!
For sublimation to occur, a dye needs to be heated in order to sublimate into a gas. Pressure is needed to create a proper contact with the substrate and to ensure a detailed definition of the final image.
Traditional mug presses combine both compression and heating in one device. The advantage of the HIX Mug Wrap is that it separates those two actions: the wrap provides the pressure, while an external source provides the heat. This avoids the accelerated wear-and-tear on a mug press’s heater band.
Examples of an external power source are the HIX SubliPro Countertop oven (for smaller volumes of about 30-50/hour) and the HIX conveyer SubliPro oven (for larger volumes of 120-1100/hour)
HIX Mug Wraps
An ever-growing variety of containers, vessels, mugs, cups, bottles, and glasses are creating a sudden rise in sublimation equipment. As an inexpensive and more flexible alternative to a mug press, HIX developed the Mug Wrap.
Our wraps provide a quick snap-on solution. Simply position and tape your artwork to virtually any type vessel. Then, wrap the vessel and artwork with the fitting HIX “Snap” Wrap. That’s it! You are ready to sublimate!!
The advantage of the HIX “Snap” Wrap is its patented tool-less clasping technology. No other mug wrap on the market is as easy to apply or remove. There’s no fumbling with awkward closing mechanism or wrenches and no need for extra hands when you’re trying to juggle endless adjustments while closing a clamp with screwdrivers or other tools.
HIX “Snap” Wraps can come in as many sizes and shapes as there are substrates in the market. For the standard straight 11oz and 15oz white mugs, HIX has a standard wrap which is readily available as part of its standard product stock. Similarly, standard dog bowl wraps are also available from regular stock. Any standard wrap may be purchased in bundles of a minimum of 10 units.
An ever-growing variety of drink wear: containers, metal coolers, mugs, cups, bottles and glasses are creating a rise in demand for Wraps to match.
HIX can design any wrap for any round surface, straight or tapered, with or without a handle. For a specific quote and volume breaks on our custom-wraps, please contact us with dimensions of height and diameter(s) of your substrate.
