As is known to all, dye sublimation transfer printing is to use an inkjet printer equipped with dye sublimation transfer paper and ink to print images and texts such as portraits, landscapes and texts on inkjet paper for dye sublimation transfer in a mirror image, and then heat to at about 200℃-210℃, the thermal transfer ink on the sublimation paper is sublimated into the substrate, so that the color image on the paper can be realistically transferred to textiles, porcelain cups, porcelain plates, porcelain plates, metals and other materials. Among them, sublimation paper plays an important role in this process.
So what is the sublimation paper?
In fact, sublimation paper is a medium, it’s a specialty paper that is used to print patterns onto clothing and textiles.
There are at least three different types of dye sublimation paper: normal, fast dry sticky sublimation paper or high speed, and sticky sublimation paper.
But why use these special types of papers and not the regular sublimation paper? Your choice of paper actually depends on the application.
What are the advantages of sticky sublimation paper?
If you’re using a rotary heat press, then by all means proceed with the regular paper type. But if you’re afraid of ghosting, get our sticky sublimation paper to eliminate the risk.
Today, we just start a discussion firstly on our sticky sublimation paper. The sticky sublimation paper has a light adhesive coating that is activated upon heating. During the transfer process, the sublimation paper sticks to the material, and ghosting is significantly minimized. This eliminates adhesive sprays. Generally suitable for some elastic fabrics, such as cycling clothes, swimwear, elastic sportswear, etc. Mainly to prevent ghosting due to misalignment in the transfer process.
These sticky sublimation papers have a so-called tackified coating. They are a type of sticky sublimation papers. The coated surface is activated upon heating.
While transferring the image, sticky sublimation paper sticks to the fabric. This helps reduce chances of ghosting.
While pressing, the image may get duplicated if the paper or the fabric moves upon lifting the press. However, tacky sublimation paper adhere to the fabric, removing the risk sufficiently.
Sticky sublimation paper is often used in sublimation when:
You’re working with certain elastic or stretchable fabrics.
These are more likely to move during the transferring process.
You can’t always use the non-stretchable, 100% polyester fabric, even though it produces the best results. Your business depends on the customer demand; you’re bound to supply what the market requires.
That is exactly what we are here for! VISION is a Chinese sublimation paper factory.We provide high quality sticky sublimation paper that you can use with these difficult fabrics. Produce beautiful results no matter what fabric you’re printing on!
Controlling ghosting errors is necessary .
In a rush, we often want things to get done quickly. Human errors while printing can occur at various stages.
Precautions when using sticky sublimation paper
While transferring, sometimes, you may lift the press too quickly. This can cause the paper to lift too. When it falls down again, the position is slightly off. As the image gets transferred, ghosting may occur.
This can be prevented while using the tacky paper too. It sticks to the fabric and doesn’t move; no matter how quickly you lift the press.
So, sticky sublimation paper rolls can help avoid repositioning during lifting and allow you to use different fabrics. Isn’t it the ideal choice, then?
