Polymers like the polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH) found on the glossy paper used in this instructable, making it a 'sublimation machine!'
Thank you, really happy to hear you are getting good results!

It's hard to give an exact time as there are many factors such as heat and humidity that can change how long it will be effective, I have found the cream to be most effective and last between 6-12 hours (one application for the whole night, or a couple of applications during the day. I tend to use the spray on plants as an organic pesticide, and the cream on myself as a repellent. Hope this helps!
Hey James, if your just doing small board, and not a whole panels of them I would consider using a laminator over an iron, google or yourube "PCB Laminator" or "PCB Laminator mod". the Sublimation Machine give really constent results bet is rcpencive for just small PCB, when I do it I tend to do large PCBs or a whole A4 sheet of small ones.
I have not tried it so cannot be 100% sure, but I don't think it will work, the key to this method is the toner powder melting onto the copper to form the resist, I'm not sure how well sublimation ink would hold up to the etching process. Please, let us know the results if you do decide to try it!
Hello Keith, Unfortunately not all vinyl is equal when it come to adhesion, could be worth trying another brand.
