Water slide Decals
Water slide decals (or slip decals) are water-mounted decals generally printed face up and rely on the dextrose corn sugar residue from the decal paper to bond the decal transfer to a surface. A water-based adhesive layer can be added to the decal to create a stronger bond or may be placed between layers of lacquer to create a durable decal transfer. The paper also has a layer of glucose film added prior to the dextrose layer which give it the adhesion properties; the dextrose layer gives the decal the ability to slide off the paper and onto the substrate (lubricity).
How to Apply Water-Slide Decals for Model Cars
Until recently, water slide decals were professionally printed and only available in supplied designs, but with the advent of printable decal paper for colour inkjet and laser printers, custom decals can now be produced by the hobbyist or small business.
In fact, We can create custom decals for you, – Simply upload your design or image with the exact dimensions and/or scale you require to our friends over at My Custom Hot Wheels and let them work their custom decal magic.
