Introducion of Dye Sublimation Ink

Dye sublimation ink is the most commonly used ink that you see for sublimating textile products. It transfers ink from paper to fabrics. Sublimation ink is water-soluble that is made from raw and natural materials like plants, or some synthetic materials. The colorant, mixed with the water, gives the ink colors.

Compared to most other dye-based inks, you will find this one lasts longer. The ink is able to produce vivid, bright, saturated, brilliant photo-quality colors. Prints with this ink easily outstand cracking, peeling, and washing away by water.

As the ink contains Cyan Magenta Yellow Overcoating, it eliminates black ink that ensures a clear overcoating ink. Due to this, the printed objects are protected from moisture, air, and UV rays, as well.

Because of its small molecular particle size, the sublimation transfer ink gives brilliant and well-saturated colors. The ink is used in most inkjet printers as dye goes well with such printers.

As far as regular document printing is concerned, using the dye ink is recommended for inkjet printing to print PVC cards, paper, photo paper, etc. It’s a more economical option than pigment ink.

Dye sublimation ink is mostly used for heat transfer printing that allows a design to imprint on textiles from paper. The heat press machine delivers heat and pressure, and the dye turns into gas, synthetic fibers of the textile then open to receives the gas. When it’s cool, the colorant encapsulates and sticks to the garment firmly.

Apart from printing textiles, you can also use digital ink for printing metal, ceramic, fiberboard, and many other materials. However, a special coating on the surface is required to hold the dye ink properly so that the ink doesn’t get faded and cracked easily.

The ink is designed to print onto polyester rich apparel the most. Sports-wear, carper fabrics, flagging, and sailing materials go perfect with it.

Advantages of Using Sublimation Ink

(1. Provides bright and more vibrant colors

(2. A small amount of light is diffused

(3. Economical option

(4. Offers a variety of colors

(5. Waterproof; thus, last for longer

(6. The designs on garments don’t crack, fade away, peel off, and wash off

Disadvantages of Using Dye Sublimation Ink

The ink is very sensitive to humidity and oxidation.

The Science Behind Dye Sublimation Ink

Dye sublimation ink is a pigment suspended in a liquid solvent, like water. We need to use this kind of ink for heat transfer printing.  Today, let’s talk about sublimation ink.

How does Dye Sublimation Ink Work?

Firstly, the sublimation printer prints some images by using digital sublimation ink. Then, the images are initially printed on coated heat-resistant transfer paper as a reverse image of the final design, which is then transferred onto polyester fabric in a heat press operating at a temperature around 180 to 210 C (375 F).

Sublimation inks produce brilliant color and good light fastness when applied to polyester and polyester coated substrates. Applying heat to the printed image with a press, whether through transfer paper or directly, fixes these vivid inks into the polyester substrate allowing the item to be washed time and time again.

What ARE Applications Of Sublimation Ink?

Designed for printing onto polyester substrates, these versatile inks will sublime onto polyester rich apparel fabrics, for example, sportswear; carpet fabrics; sails and flagging material. Fabrics retain their natural handle making this process ideal for garment sampling and also promotional banners. These printed fabrics are hardwearing and washable. Further information on Textile Ink products is available.

Sublimation Ink is a perfect solution for heat transferring images onto pre-coated ceramics, metals and plastic. The list of applications is endless: mugs, decorative tiles, fridge magnets, mouse mats, trophies, and even surfboards!!! Due to the wide variety of substrates available, working with these inks opens the door to short or long run, quick response promotional gifts and product sampling. The process of transferring the image is quick and clean with excellent transfer from paper to the substrate.
