Difference Between Sublimation Transfer Ink, Dye Ink And Pigment Ink

Sublimation transfer ink is also called sublimation ink, which is mainly used for heat transfer printing products. The sublimation transfer ink can be printed on other products after being heated by the heat transfer machine, so it is one of the essential materials in the sublimation transfer industry and mainly used in non-cotton materials.

1.Compared with other dye inks, pigment inks and water-based inks, sublimation transfer inks are bright and dense, and have high density. Sublimation transfer inks are mainly produced in the United States and South Korea, and American heat transfer inks and Korean heat transfer. The ink color is fresh and thick, and the American sublimation transfer ink printed on paper and the Korean sublimation transfer ink pattern are light and clear. After heat transfer by the heat transfer machine, the image is clear and the color reproduction degree is high. It is also the advantage of import sublimation transfer ink printing.

2.Dye ink is a molecular-level fully dissolved ink. This ink is a complete composite solution. The probability of blocking the ink head is very small. It is easy to be absorbed by the material after printing, and the color is gorgeous. Moreover, the cost of manufacture is low, and the disadvantage is that it is not waterproof, and since the dye molecules are rapidly decomposed under ultraviolet irradiation, the use of outdoor ultraviolet rays is markedly faded within one month. The advantage is that the color is bright, the layer is clear and the price is lower than the pigment type ink, so it is the first choice for printing pictures and making color inkjet cards.

pigment ink3.The pigment ink said that the image point is powdery ink, of course, this is just a kind of image, and is not accurate enough. To be precise, it is a solid pigment that is ground into very fine particles and dissolved in a special aqueous solvent. It is a suspension solution or a semi-solution, which is the same as the pigment of our dyed clothing. Contrary to the principle that dye ink penetrates into the medium to form a color, it is colored by the color material attached to the surface of a medium such as copy paper or printing paper.

Therefore, it has the advantage of printing with pigment ink, even if it is printed on plain paper, it will not smear, and because the pigment itself is waterproof, it is not easily decomposed by ultraviolet rays, so its water resistance is strong, it is also light-resistant, and printed matter Even if used outdoors, it can last for more than a year without obvious signs of fading.

The disadvantage is that most of the pigment inks will leave the color material on the surface, so even if you print on paper with a flat surface such as glossy paper, you can’t print a glossy image, which is why it is usually printed with pigment ink. The things are all dull. In addition, pigment inks are more expensive to manufacture, so the price is also higher than that of dye inks. The price difference is as high as two to four times. The sublimation transfer images are brightly colored and rich in layers. The effect is comparable to printing. The difference is that sublimation transfer is an image that can be formed by sublimating a sublimation transfer ink at a high temperature, penetrating the surface of the medium, and desubliming. Therefore, a film is not formed on the surface of the medium, and the image does not fall off, is not cracked, and is light-resistant, and does not fade for a long time.

dye subliamation transfer ink

About Kiian heat transfer ink characteristic, i have concluded as below:

Digital sublimation ink for transfer printing. Ideal for transferring onto synthetic fabrics (polyester), onto rigid substrates (pre-treated) and onto blended fibres (min 80% PES)Ideal on medium and large format machines, it fully exploits their productive capacities. Speed, reliability and reproducibility of the processes over time meet the criteria of industrial productions.The speed of ink drying influences the overall printing speed. A printer can only print as fast as the individual prints dry or cure.Colour extension and brightness, allowing the reproduction of a wide colour space during profiling.

Chromatism:  chromatic range, extraordinary intensity and trendy “Soft Mood”;
General fastness: itself at the maximum level of the chemical nature of the sublimation ink;
Good image quality:Coming from selected raw materials, which lets even the most difficult graphics be reproducible.
Reliability:the complete compatibility between ink and plotter heads allows to achieve “Kilometers of Prints”
