Champion Glow Plastic

Just a quick question...

I am getting ready to dye some Trophy discs for the club and some of the discs are the Champion glow plastic. Does anyone know if Champion Glow will dye the same as regular Champ plastic?

Thanks

Not the same...better! It bleeds a bit easier though, so make sure your seals are tight and right. Make sure to post pics when you're done!

Yeah glow plastic looks sweet dyed and sometimes will glow after being dyed (not that champion plastic really glows well).

Well I did my first Champion low plastic discs. I would have to say it doesn't dye as well as non-glow.

I have one disc that sat in the dye for about 20 minutes and never completely took the dye. It is possible the dye was exhausted so I will dip it one more time when I do my last few discs with fresh dye.

Here are the ones I finished so far...



This is the trophy for the Hawk Hollow Pro Open hot pepper eating champ. The event organizer grows some of the hottest peppers there are and gets crazy people to volunteer to eat them.

There's utube videos of the 2010 contest but I couldn't get the utube link to work.

The Hawk Hollow Advanced Women's trophy



Avancedd Masters



One problem that I have never experienced is the vinyl took some of the color off the hot stamp. The foil is still there but it looks kinda messed up. I'm going to have to figure out a way to fix this on the rest of the discs.

It sucks that the hot stamps were damaged because I did such a good job on the dyes. Very clean cuts, only a few tiny spots where the dye bled.

put a piece of paper between hot stamp and vinyl, as long as the edges seal it shouldn't have any adverse affects

I dyed my Champ Glow Tbird and it took dye better than anything else. In fact, the yellow got too dark because I wasn't expecting it to dye so fast.

I've found that using the Rit neon colors on champion glow plastic is stellar. The neon dyes seem to have some UV reactive qualities about them, so if you're charging your glow disc with a UV flashlight, the colors really pop at you.

Here's a champ glow Mako with Neon Green:


During glow rounds, the green dots radiate while charging under the UV light, then kinda "mask" the glow of the plastic with the UV light off. It causes somewhat of an inversion of the negative/positive space on this pattern. I really wish I had a good picture of this disc under the UV light...
