The Importance of Base Paper in Sublimation Transfer Printing

Base Paper plays an important role in sublimation transfer printing, do you know the reason? As we all know, the quality of roll sublimation paper affects the result of the transferring, and base paper is one of the reasons that cause the quality difference of sublimation paper.

Actually, there are two kinds of base paper which we used to make industrial sublimation paper in the market: High-quality base paper and Economic base paper. What’s the difference between them?

sublimation printing1. 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 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 of digital sublimation printing 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 process of sublimation transfer printing, the dye sublimation ink will penetrate the base paper and spread to the backside, and influence the transfer result of dye sublimation printing.

This type of base paper 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.
