High Quality Sublimation Ink Can Do Better Printing Image? – For Sure!
As we can see, sublimation ink is very widely used for textiles because it is easy to work with and only requires heat and a little pressure as a post-process.It produces bright colours, but the limitation is that it only works with polyesters. Polyester-natural fibre mixes can be used, but the less polyester the fewer the binding points for the dye, so the image is duller and wash resistance suffers.
Some clients often complaint that after printing, the dye sublimation paper dries to slowly. They think it is the sublimation transfer paper problem. Actually the drying time also has something to do with the sublimation ink. Some clients buy the cheap sublimation ink, which the major component is water, not sublimation dye, so in fact , you are printing water to the sublimation paper rather than sublimation ink, no doubt the paper is drying too slowly.
With the direct method, the polyester textile is printed directly on the inkjet. The ink sublimation dries, but initially the colour doesn’t bind into the fibres so the image looks dull. The textile is then run through a calendaring roller, when the heat causes it to sublimate and bind to the fibres. The image then takes on its full brightness. So pls believe that the low price ink usually with no good reault.
