Base Paper of Sublimation Printing Paper
Category : Blog
In the market, there are two kinds of different quality sublimation printing paper, the high-quality one and the economic one. One of the reasons that cause the quality difference, is the base paper.
Now there are two kinds of base papers that used to making dye sublimation paper in the market.
1. High Quality base paper.
This type of base paper is made up of needlebush pulp(softwood) and broadleaf pulp(hardwood), the ratio is 7:3 normally.
The fiber is longer, it means the intention of the sublimation paper and the capability of enduring high temperature is better, that will make sure the paper still has the best intension in continuous production process under high temperature, that could protect your paper from breaking which will cause the bad influence to your production.
Also, the tightness is greater, above 0.9g/cm3, the air permeability is smaller. If the tightness 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 backside, and influence the transfer result of sublimation printing paper.
2. Economic base paper.
This type is made up of 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 intention, the capability of enduring high temperature, the tightness, the air permeability, it is weaker than the up-grade base paper.
Anyway, in the sublimation industry, if you are lucky in using the right paper, no problems occur; if you are using the wrong paper, many problems could happen, and the problems will be more and more.
