Why Tacky Sublimation Paper Dries Slower Than Non-Tacky Paper?
Category : Blog
Tacky sublimation paper is mainly applied to stretch materials like Lycra, polyester with spandex polyester with cotton(<30%). And many people are puzzled one problem that why the sticky sublimation transfer paper dries slower than regular dye sublimation transfer paper. Now we are going to talk about the reason.
Generally, non-tacky dye sublimation paper dries completely in 2 minutes, but the sticky sublimation paper dries in 3-4 minutes. This doesn’t mean the sticky paper has quality problem. Actually, the coating of the tacky sublimation paper is the main factor that can influence the speed of drying. Sticky sublimation coating powder is specifically designed and developed for the elastic fabric transfer printing, to prevent the overlap of the pattern, deformation and other issues of elastic fabric in the process of transfer, resulting in a very low pass rate of transfer printing.This coating is mainly made up of high molecular polymer. Different with the fast dry paper, the special coating is water-based, so the sticky sublimation paper needs longer drying time than other sublimation transfer paper. And there is one thing that you should know: the higher tackiness is, the slower the paper dries.
At the present, there are two types of sticky sublimation paper in the market, the high-tacky sublimation transfer paper and Medium-tacky paper. The only difference is that the tacky degree. The high tacky paper has higher tackness than the medium tacky. The drying speed is longer than medium tacky, about 3-4 minutes, the
medium-tacky paper, drying speed is less than 3 minutes. Therefore, you need to choose the suitable sticky paper for your business.
