How Can You Determine Different Weight Sublimation Transfer Paper?
Category : Blog
If you hear the word GSM in a conversation related to the sublimation printing process, you can be pretty certain that it is the thickness of the sublimation transfer paper that is being discussed. The significance of this word is the weight per square meter of the sublimation paper. And do you know the usages of different weight paper? 😉
58gsm sublimation paper is dedicated to the latest high-speed digital printers. This kind of paper can help eliminate head strikes to reduce the consumption of ink with fine detail definition and color gradient transition will be more smooth during printing. If the textile requires little dye sublimation ink, such as summer clothes, you should choose 58g dye sublimation paper.
60gsm sublimation transfer paper which people are using normally this weight sublimation paper in the MS high-speed printers. In future the printer will work faster and faster, the printing paper will be thinner and thinner.
75gsm-80gsm dye sublimation paper is your best choice in the humidity under 45%. Because in low humidity, the paper shrinks, and the print side is hunched-up. During the process, the paper absorbs ink, which leads to the “hunch-up”. 75gsm-80gsm is softer, it could relieve the “hunch-up” and protect your print-head from damage.
110-120gsm sublimation printing paper should be chosen in the humidity above 70%. Since the transfer paper is very easy to become damp with high humidity, it will become softer and stiffness is weak at the same time. If low weight paper is used, it will be hard to print smoothly because of the stiffness and hardness go down.
