What is the Relationship Between Heat and Sublimation Printing?
Sublimation printing is not hard to learn, but there are many kinds of factors can influence the result of sublimation printing. Today, we will discuss how does heat influence the sublimation printing.
As we all know, the heat is essential in sublimation printing, and we transfer the images from paper to substrates through the heat. By adjust the temperature of the heat press machine, we can adjust the heat.Then how heat influence the printing result?
Too much or too little heat are usually problematic and result in over pressing or under pressing of the substrate. Uneven heating on the press is also an issue and results in spottiness where parts of the substrate sublimate properly but other parts don’t. It is a good idea to invest in temperature strips or a thermal gun, both of which map out the temperature of the heat platen. If there are any inconsistencies or cold spots, it is best to call the manufacturer of the press.
We usually suggest our customers to have a test before printing, and adjust the heat to the appropriate level. It will help you save a lot.
