A Brief Analysis on Fading Reasons of Heat Transfer Clothes

Heat transfer clothes is the main products in heat transfer industry, but the heat transfer clothes will also appear faded. Do you know why?

1. Washing Fading

wash clothesWashing fading is normally with transfer paper and offset heat transfer printing ink, so the ink that do not dissolve in water is better. The pigment ink jet printing press as the character, principle of transfer paper is in the high temperature will melt in the internal use of the ink film, then melting in the cloth. To achieve “transfer” results. So the difference of adhesive transfer paper after washing Polyester will gradually fall off, resulting in fading. This transfer method is the most common method, almost covered more than 95%. So there is a requirement for the material, which must be Khmer material, cotton material or chemical fiber polyester material.

2. Solar UV Fading

dry clothesHeat transfer products are easy to fade in the sun’s ultraviolet radiation, which is related to the offset heat transfer printing ink but has nothing to do with the transfer paper. Because the poor ink adds no anti UV agent and will fade quickly. The good quality ink can stay long time, but the sunlight will speed up the fade.

FeiYue Digital Technology Co., Ltd mainly manages sublimation paper, inkjet printer, digital printing inks, calendering machines and accessories, operating this industry has been more than 10 years experience. After continuous improvement of the product, to ensure product quality can also be profit at the same time to the minimum, to ensure that customers enjoy the best price and the best quality products.

How Does Temperature And Humidity Affect The Printing of Heat Transfer Paper?

heat transfer paperHeat transfer paper and moisture are related because paper is hygroscopic. The substrate attracts moisture from its surrounding environment. It may also release moisture so that equilibrium can be reached in that environment. When it comes to offset, laser, and inkjet printing, moisture content is extremely important. When buying paper, the ones should be bought must have the correct moisture content. You must try and then maintain a stable moisture content when handling the paper. These must be done as per recommended specifications.

1. Relative humidity

The measurement of moisture content comes as relative humidity. It affects the moisture amount in the paper. Generally, paper gets produced with absolute moisture content anywhere between four percent and six percent. It means about heat transfer paperfour percent to six percent of the weight of the paper consists of water. However, paper in an unpacked condition may either dissipate or absorb moisture. Majority of the papers are manufactured to be stable in a 55 percent relative humidity in a 72 degrees Fahrenheit environment.

Moisture affects different printing processes differently. The moisture content in digital printing could affect toner adhesion, fuser roller temperature, and paper jams. When it comes to offset, it could affect the press-ink interaction and the paper-press interaction too. The paper and ink relation could also be influenced. Moisture will also affect inkjet printing. It is much more vulnerable to ink spreading or dot gain. There could be delays in drying and inks may show through.

2. Managing paper

sublimation transfer paperHeat transfer paper management is thus extremely important. The sheets should be stored in a particular room where humidity and temperature both can be controlled. If this is not possible. Visit the room where the paper will be printed. Leave the paper there for about 24 hours. Keep the paper wrapped in a shrinking foil as long as possible. It must not touch or be near the outer walls.

Prior to removing the wrap, ensure that the paper is the same temperature as surrounding air. Try to maintain production area between 45 percent RH and 55 percent RH. The temperatures should remain constant. The environment should also be a comfortable one. The outside doors must be observed for moisture gain or moisture loss. This may happen from the loading docks. To minimize this, install second barriers like forced air or plastic between production areas and docks. The paper must be acclimatized post printing to permit moisture return or outgas.

Washing the garment before is a mistake that can cost you time and money.

3. With respect to ironing

A number of people hesitate to make the iron really hot, it is necessary that the iron reaches its maximum temperature. If you are using a steam iron, than switch-off the steam. Do not keep the iron still during the process, especially if you have an iron that have indentations. Parts of the image will not be imprinted if you do not keep the iron moving. Make sure the ironing is done on a flat surface. A lot of people refrain from using too much iron pressure, which is a mistake. You have to apply as much pressure as possible to get the best result.
