First,sublimation is the physical process whereby a substance transitions from the solid phase directly to the gas phase without first passing through the liquid phase. In other words, just as dry ice which is frozen carbon dioxide which immediately become a gas at room temperature. Sublimation takes place because of heat, because of pressure, or both.
And dye sublimation, a digital printing process that uses heat to transfer dye to materials such as printer paper , poster paper, or fabric(by sublimation transfer paper), is rapidly gaining market share due to the increasing availability of new and improved combinations of sublimation inks, hardware and software that have pushed the quality range of digital media much higher.It focuses on two primary areas, including sublimation to textiles/soft fabrics as well as rigid substrates, dye sublimation enables the production of items such as point-of-sale applications, banners, t-shirts, custom flags, license plates, snowboards and promotional pieces.
Dye sublimation printing can reproduce images on a variety of flexible and rigid substrates, which can endure the amount of heat, pressure and dwell time necessary for image transfer. With two primary areas of focus, including sublimation to textiles/soft fabrics as well as rigid substrates, dye sublimation enables the production of items such as point-of-sale applications, banners, custom flags, license plates, snowboards and promotional pieces.
In the digital imaging arena, the sublimation process takes place in a special laminator in which temperature, dwell time and pressure vary depending on the polymer receiving material. Surfaces for sublimation need to be specialty-coated or polymer-coated to accept inks and sublimation conditions vary depending on the heat transfer press being used, making it necessary for print providers to determine optimal temperature, pressure and dwell time conditions based on individual heat presses. When the heating process is completed, the image on the paper has been fully transferred to the item and has become part of the surface requiring no surface protection and resulting in a permanent, durable image that cannot be rubbed or washed off.So,are you ready to join us about dye sublimation printing?
