Whats the Different Textile Ink Options: dispersed, reactive, acid pigment and Sublimation?

图片
Our commonly used “dye sublimation inks” are most typically for transfer printing from paper to fabric. The sublimation process requires the use of a calendar to deliver heat and pressure. When the ink and carrier is heated to a high temperature the carrier evaporates and the dye turns to gas. The synthetic fibers “open” to receive the gas and when they cool, they close and encapsulate the colorant, which then returns to a solid, actually dyeing the material.


Disperse inks are the most commonly known type of digital textile inks, and this is what is used in the dye-sublimation ink process. Dispersed inks infuse into and actually dye the fabric, becoming part of the textile itself. Disperse inks are broken down into low-energy, medium-energy and high-energy dispersion.


Reactive ink contains dyes that create chemical bonds with cellulose when applied to pretreated fabric and then fixated. Reactive inks do best on linen, rayon, nylon and other cellulosic materials.
Acid inks require pretre…

Do You Know The Advantages For the Sublimation Digital Textile Printing

图片
As we all know, sublimation are so hot now, its widely used in the digital textile printing area,  so whats the detail advantages for the sublimation printing?





Sublimation digital textile printing is immense and can have a great impact on the textile market as a whole. Today, a major drawback for mass textile printing is the design. Digital printing enables higher color definition with short designing time which is not possible with traditional printing. Furthermore, printing can be done in short runs at low investment cost both in capital equipment and in materials; fabrics and inks.


Another advantage of sublimation textile digital printing, which is receiving higher profile attention among manufacturers, consumers and environmentalists is the substantial lower cost of production in terms of electricity and water consumption of over 30% savings on electricity costs and almost 95% in terms of water consumption.
The fabrics being used in the textile printing industry are so diverse that…

Have you add the hard suface sublimation in your business line?

图片
As we all know, sublimation printing are famous on the fashion apparel, sportswear, and the large format textile, have you add the hard-surface on your business line? Adding hard-surface sublimation to your current lineup of services is a great option regardless of whether you’re just starting a business or have been decorating for years.


With the correct tools and equipment, hard-surface sublimation not only allows you to offer more variety to your clients, but it also has the potential to substantially grow your business.
Sublimation is no stranger to the decoration world, starting in the textile industry and later expanding into hard substrates. The longevity of the products has grown immensely and expanded from those that are small and personalized to larger hard-surface products that are suitable for the photo industry. There is significant variety available in the marketplace, and the improved technology and sublimation support makes hard-surface personalized products more afforda…

How about the large format sublimation compare with traditional sublimation

图片
A different direction for large format sublimation  is the production of bulk goods, most of which involve fabric, but not finished goods. These products usually are delivered to cut and sew operations, which turn them into fabric based products. In the case of specialty operations, the printed material is converted into a finished product on site. Examples include apparel, upholstery, tapestries, trade show backdrops, overhead exhibition signs, pull-up banners and table covers.


Traditional sublimation printing on finished products requires a flat press, which must be larger than the largest printed image. With bulk fabric goods, a calendar press typically is used. It consists of a series of heated rollers through which the paper and fabric pass. This provides the necessary time, temperature and pressure on a continuous-feed basis. Considering that paper rolls can be hundreds of yards long, a lot of fabric can be printed in a single production run.


In addition to large individual pieces…

Analysis the sublimation production systems Desktop and wide format printer

图片
Sublimation printing is very famous now, today we will analysis the sublimation production systems, Sublimation production systems typically fall into one of two categories: desktop or large format. The traditional dividing point between these two formats is 42 inches of printing width. Generally, anything greater than that width is considered large format sublimation; anything less is considered desktop format.


In addition, large format printers use paper rolls, while most desktop printers use single sheets of paper. Thus, large format systems can produce much larger images than those generated by desktop units.   
However, there are some quality printers in the 24” to 41” range that — while not considered large format offer all the benefits of the larger systems in a smaller package with a lower investment. With this “crossover” class of printers, there are more options than ever for shops looking to move into large format printing.  


Most sublimators start by using desktop equipment r…
