The Difference between the Fast Dry and the Sticky Sublimation Transfer Paper

Sublimation paper is applicable to sublimation transfer, on which can print images with mirror reversal through inkjet printing, flat printing, screen printing and gravure printing onto textile, fabric, flag… and so on. And, for sublimation transfer paper, we generally divide it into 2 types: Fast Dry Sublimation Transfer Paper and Sticky/Tacky Sublimation Paper. Do you know the difference between them?

Sublimation Paper

1. Drying Speed
* High-Speed Transfer Paper it’s now widely used in home-ware, craft work,and costumes. Just like its name, the drying speed of this type transfer paper is very quick and it dries completely in 2 minutes after heating.
* Sticky Paper means on one side it has a tackified coating which is the main factor that can influence the speed of drying, and this type of sublimation paper usually dries in 3-4 minutes after heating.

2. Application
* Quick Dry Sublimation Paper is s normally used in the market, such as sport apparel, interior fabrics, fashion textile, lanyards & labels, sign & display and so on.
* Tacky Transfer Paper prevents the paper and textile from moving, the ghosting will not occur. So it is mostly used in stretch material such as lycra, the stretch material has a elastic which is much easier moving during the transfer, like straitjacket, swimwear, cycling clothes.

3. Cost
* The price of tacky paper is higher than high-speed paper because it has a tackified coating.

4. Transfer Yield
* Fast Dry Sublimation Transfer Paper could deliver the 96.% ink to the substrate
* Sticky Sublimation Paper is 95.7%

5. Available Size
* Fast Dry Paper: 45gsm, 50gsm, 57gsm, 60gsm, 70gsm, 75gsm, 77gsm, 88gsm, 90gsm, 100gsm, 105gsm, 120gsm: 17″, 24″, 36″, 44″, 50″, 52″, 54″, 63″, 64″, 72″, 126″
* Tacky Paper: 100gsm / 105gsm: 17″, 24″, 36″, 44″, 50″, 52″, 54″, 63″, 64″, 72″, 126″

45/60/70sgm sublimation paper suit to high speed machine. Like MSJP series, REGGIANI printer. In usual, those type, we make with jumbo rolls like 5000M, 10,000M

80/90gsm sublimation paper suit to light image printing, because 80/90gsm paper are thinner than 100gsm paper. If your image need too much more ink, 80gsm paper will shrink. Meanwhile you need to control the humidity in 40%-60%. In this way, your paper won’t wrinkling.

100gsm sublimation paper suit to textile which requires lots of ink. For example, printing a large area of dark color, you need to choose 100gsm due that 100gsm paper are more thickness, and it can absorb more ink and it won’t shrink.

If your fabric is elastic, sticky sublimation paper is your best choice. At present, 100gsm sticky paper is the most popular in the market, and it can avoid double printing image on the fabric.

We 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.
