How To Choose Suitable Adhesive Degree Sticky Sublimation Paper?

Sticky sublimation paper for elastic fabrics, generally used for sportswear, swimwear, yoga clothes, mountaineering suits and so on with elastic fabric.

Sticky sublimation transfer paper is specially developed for thermal fabric sublimation transfer printing. Adhesive paper is added with binder in the coating. The transfer paper coating can be bonded to the fabric during thermal transfer to avoid heat Transfer of paper and fabric slip and the emergence of the “eye socket” “ghost” and other printed defects.

High-quality sticky sublimation paper can bring high-quality products, then how to judge the quality of viscous sublimation paper? Mainly from the following three points to judge.

1.The base paper on the fabric starts falling off when you hold the paper up, and you shake the fabric a little. The base paper just fall off, that is the low sticky type.

2.For the medium-sticky type, you can see the electrodes starts falling off after shaking, but it still stick on the fabric.

3.For fully sticky type, no matter how hard you shake the fabric, the base paper still stick firmly on the fabric even the edges. And when you try to peel the base paper off the fabric, you can see the fabric is a little Stretching.

From the above three points can be seen tacky sublimation paper is divided into three different grades, you can according to their own needs to choose different degrees of sticky sublimation paper.

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.

Attentions That Need To Take Care When Use Sticky Sublimation Paper

The impact of stikcy sublimation paper and fabric bonding strength of the factors, the bonding between the fabric and adhesive paper by the following aspects:

sticky sublimation paper

1. Sticky sublimation paper stickiness grade

2. Fabric type

3. Environmental humidity

4. Customer’s pattern

5. preservation of sticky sublimation paper

For the above phenomenon, we have a simple summary that you should pay attention to in the usage of sticky sublimation transfer paper.

1. Select the appropriate adhesive strength of the sticky sublimation paper (according to fabric, season, pattern);

2. Pay attention to the transfer process of moisture (fabric moisture, paper moisture);

3. Note that the preservation of sticky sublimation paper (unused adhesive paper sealed to save, print the sticky paper in time to transfer).
