How to Store Dye Sublimation Ink in A Proper Way

Dye sublimation ink is an essential consumable for sublimation printing. Knowing how to store it properly is vital if you want it to last longer and reduce overheads. Furthermore, proper storage of dye sublimation ink also ensures that the product doesn’t lose its properties during storage, which can otherwise affect the print quality.

1. Store Away From Sunlight

Most dye sublimation inks are water based. As such, if you store them in sunlight, the heat can cause the water to evaporate, making the ink more viscous. Using thick sublimation inks can damage your printer head nozzles, while the print quality is also likely to get affected.

Moreover, UV energies carried by sunlight can also cause chemical decomposition of dye sublimation inkthe ink material. This can cause ink to fade in color, and you’ll have to get your stock replaced prematurely.

2. Keep in Air Tight Containers

It’s strongly advised that you keep sublimation inks in air tight containers. If exposed to air, dye sublimation ink can dry, which can make them inappropriate for use.

Furthermore, believe it or not, but exposure to air can also cause certain bacteria to grow in your dye sublimation ink. These bacteria can naturally degrade the ink material.

It’s a good idea to retain original packaging and using it when storing your dye sublimation ink, but if you have mistakenly discarded it, you can store the ink in air tight plastic bottles. These bottles are easily available at local stores.

3. Keep the Batches Separate

xOften to save space, some people mix old sublimation ink (of course, of same color) with a new batch and store them in the same bottle. This practice must be avoided.

Firstly because, the old ink may be nearing its expiration date and as such mixing it with a new ink batch can reduce the product’s shelf life.

Secondly, if an old batch is contaminated with air bubbles or bacteria, mixing it with the new batch of ink can also contaminate the other product.

Exercise proper storage of dye sublimation ink – it would allow you to use them for longer, while maintaining high quality prints.

Is UV Ink Environmentally Friendly& How to Minimize the Harm

UV ink is more environmentally friendly than traditional printing pigment (solid, liquid and powdery). Especially when printed on the surface of the material for up to UV ink12 hours, it is almost odorless and can be directly exposed by the skin. But it still contains a small amount of toxicity. After all, the composition of the ink contains chemicals.

We need to understand that the more cheaper the inferior UV ink is, the more toxic it is. Compared to the imported high-end UV ink, the toxic damage can reach 10 times or even higher.

The harm of UV ink is mainly  in two aspects:
1.The corrosiveness of the ink:
A few people is sensitive to the skin. After contact with the UV ink, rashes and allergies may occur. It is necessary to wash and rub the ointment in time. If you accidentally splash into your eyes, flush it with clean water immediately.

Some people, especially those with sensitive rhinitis and respiratory tract inflammation, are easily irritated and cause discomfort.

The solutions:
1.Keep the indoor ventilationsmooth. Do not install the UV printer in a closed and ventilated place;
2. If conditions permit, you can isolate the UV printer operating room separately;
3.If there is no separate conditions, choose to wear masks to filter;
4.Technicians should exercise more daily, eat more fruits, pay attention to diet and so on. This will improve their immunity.
