Different kinds of sublimation transfer printing need various ink types.These inks have high color reproducibility, excellently reproduce designs with vibrant colors on polyester, and add value to uniforms, swimwear, and costumes.The ink is fixed on the polyester fabric by sublimation at high temperatures. The combination of ink and machine technologies achieves cost-effective and eco-conscious direct sublimation printing. Sublimation transfer printing is also available on polyester fabrics with vivid and clear colors. Several black inks are offered to produce subtle differences in shades of black.
Sublimation as a production technique is relatively simple. It's the chemical process which separates it from any other form of digital printing. When sublimation inks are heated, they turn into a gas and for a permanent bond to 100% polyester fabric or items that have a polymer coating. The ink molecules revert to a solid state upon cooling. The result is a premium full colour, photographic quality image that will not crack, peel or wash away from the substrate. Sublimation dyes are not opaque and therefore the printable items need to be white or a pastel colour.
Dye sublimation ink is also called heat transfer ink,which is used for the printing products, the transfer ink will be show on the fabric after heat transfer by the high temperature, so it is very necessary material on heat transfer business.Compare with the pigment ink and dye ink, the sublimation ink with vivid color, high density, mainly make in USA and KOREA, and all with vivid color, after heat transfer by the machine, the design is clear, high reduction color, this is the advantage of the imported ink.
