How Does Sublimation Base Paper Affect the Quality of Transfer Paper?
In the market, there are two different quality sublimation paper: the high quality one and the economic one. One of the reasons that cause the quality difference is the base paper.
1. High Quality base paper
This type of base paper is made up with needlebush pulp(softwood) and broadleaf pulp(hardwood), the ratio is 7:3 normally.
The fiber is longer, it means the intension of the paper and the capability of enduring high temperature is better, that will make sure the paper still have best intension in continuous production process under high temperature, that could protect your paper from breaking which will cause badly influence to your production.
Also the tightness is greater, above 0.9g/cm3, the air permeability is smaller. If the thightness is smaller, then the air permeability is greater, that means during the transfer, the sublimation ink will penetrate the base paper and spread to the back side, and influence the transfer result.
2. Economic base paper
This type is made up with various kinds of mixed pulp of waste paper, such as newspaper, packing paper etc from our daily life or industrial waste paper. No matter the intension, the capability of enduring high temperature, the tightness, the air permeablility, it is weaker than the up-grade base paper.
