What Do You Know About Tacky Sublimation Paper?

Tacky sublimation paper, one type of sublimation paper, has a special tackified coating, which will be activated by heat. The tacky products are ideal for apparel, like sportswear, swimwear. The paper can misalign and shift the image during the transferring or calendaring process if a fabric is stretchy. When heat is activated during the transfer process, this product will stick to the garment of a cut apparel piece in a flatbed or clamshell heat press machine, which will eliminate ghosting or loss of details due to movements in the transfer process, and therefore, it will help us reduce production errors and increase quality.

The 2 most important factors about sticky sublimation transfer paper, is the stickiness(tackiness degree) and drying speed. Now in the market, almost all the sublimation papers, including tacky sublimation paper, the drying speed is not a problem anymore. So that leaves the tackiness the most important. There are several things about the stickiness:

1. How to choose the right tacky sublimation paper?

hi-tack sublimation paperUsually, the sticky degree depends on the dark-color volume or fabric type. The adhesive coating has been designed to react differently depending on the color darker. The degree of thickness decrease on the light color ink, and increases in the dark color ink.

The light color is designed to carry a light stickiness for easy takeoff. You may find that the paper does not seem to be adhered to the slick fabric after pressing out. However, the stickiness worked adequately enough to eliminate ghosting or printing errors during heat press.

And the dark color requires much more adhesion during the transfer.

In other words, with the same paper, the tackiness degree changes with a different design, ink loading.

So for dark-heavy ink load, high tacky sublimation paper would be the best choice, and medium-heave ink load, use the medium tacky, and low ink load, the low tacky. Strong adhesion would be not necessary for light-color imagines, rather might hurt productivity.

This is the common issue of the tacky paper. Several years ago, we met this issue too. But now we succeeded in solving it. Our sticky sublimation paper could last at least 6 months, while others are for 3 months.

What Should We Notice When Using Dye Sublimation Paper?

Dye sublimation paper is virtually playing a quintessential role in the ultimate output satisfactory of our sublimated products. Therefore, for the exceptional end result of sublimation printing, we have to note the following precautions when the usage of sublimation paper.

dye sublimation paper

* The humidity of the printing surroundings is fine controlled at 50% -70% and the temperature should be controlled at about t 20-25 degrees.

sublimation transfer paper* Keet clean of the printing room to keep away from the dust floating on the paper causing damage to the sublimation printer.
Two Reasons: If the air is too dry effortless to make the sublimation paper warpage, when the amount of ink when the switch of ink switch movie elongation and arch may purpose friction Nozzle failure; such as the air is too wet will lead to a reduction in drying pace and elongation of both ends of the transfer paper.

* To verify the print aspect of the sublimation transfer paper. If the printing surface can now not be determined, here is a resolution: when the fingers can be stained with water, respectively, the two sides of the switch paper, Heavy is the print side.

sublimation transfer paper* When we use a new roll sublimation paper, it is secure to print a small piece of widespread colour (the trendy shade is the user familiar with the usual pattern consisting of CMYK four or six colors) and make a transfer check to ensure that every Roll the same color, such as the emergence of a great color, to locate the reasons and exclusion in a well-timed manner.

*When the dye sublimation paper is placed on the printer, take a fantastic fabric glove to prevent the paper from being stained.

How to Avoid Humidity Affecting the Digital Sublimation Paper?

As we all know, many things may affect digital sublimation paper. The high humidity will influence the drying speed of the sublimation paper. It will be very low and the worse situation is caused by paper touching the printing head. Most of the customers may have this problem. Therefore, it is very important to control indoor humidity. Therefore, today we are going to talk about how to avoid the humidity affecting the paper.

1. Avoid the moisture that comes with your clothes.
Firstly, we should restore our dye sublimation paper carefully. They should be placed in a cool & dry place to avoid direct sunlight. When dealing with our clothes, if we suspect there may be moisture in it, we can pre-press the clothes for about five seconds to warm it.

digital sublimation paper 2. Control the indoor humidity
We should control the indoor humidity from 50 to 60%. The 50-60% humidity helps keep digital sublimation paper smooth printing, and also make roll sublimation paper and sublimation ink dry quick. If the indoor humidity is too high, we can open your air conditioner to create a dry room of stable humidity and temperature. But it may cost you a lot of budgets.

As a professional supplier of digital sublimation paper, we suggest each customer should have a hygrometer to measure temperature and relative humidity (RH).
