How About Our 3.2m Sublimation Paper & Whats the Main Application?
Category : Tips & Tricks
Dye-sublimation printing is the good digital printing technology for polyester and other synthetic fabrics and media. Today we will introduce you our newly 3.2m sublimation paper, generally we produce 3.2m sublimation paper long time ago, but we just produce 100 gram, now we can produce 50gram to 140gram.
Now our sublimation transfer paper can transfer synthetic fabric up to 3.2 meters wide. We put this to use mainly for large textile banners and signage especially for high quality exhibition graphics. Soft signage is becoming ever increasingly popular due to the ease of packing and transport. It is light and can be easily folded for packing getting around the need to ship heavy large rolls of media.
The process uses the science of sublimation, in which heat and pressure are applied to a solid, turning it into a gas through an endothermic reaction without passing through the liquid phase. The image is first printed to a special transfer paper. It it then feed through a high pressure roller heat-press which effectively turns the ink in the paper to a gas. The polymer molecules of the polyester or other synthetic fabrics softens under the heat.
Once transferred on the heat-press the printed and transferred fabric goes to our finishing dept. for any finishing that needs to be performed before the textile is delivered and put to work.
Main application for 3.2m sublimation paper
Sublimation is terrific Lycra/Spandex and other sportswear fabrics.
Hot of the press graphics for Potluck Restaurant.
This is where it gets serious! Giant exhibition panels sublimated onto polytwill for a exhibition.
It is also great for hard wearing upholstery applications custom chairs Sublimation onto synthetics is perfect for inflatables like this delightful castle from Airspace
