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.

tacky sublimation paper

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).

What Factors Can Influence Sticky Sublimation Printing Paper?

What Factors Can Influence Sticky Sublimation Printing Paper?

industrial inkjet adhesive paperSticky Sublimation paper is a type of transfer paper with tackifying ability. This tackifying ability makes it possible that the paper and elastic cloth can be fastened closely together during the stamping process and thus eliminate the probable heavy shadows on the elastic clothes.

A. Sticky sublimation transfer paper stickiness level: different for the customer’s fabric, the ambient air humidity varies throughout the year, the adhesive strength of the adhesive paper is also different, in addition to most of the fabric for the ordinary adhesive paper, developed a Kind of high sticky paper. High sticky paper relative to the ordinary sticky paper, bond strength increased by 50%, other performance indicators are quite suitable for relatively dry autumn and winter season, or customer graphics light-based, the fabric is more smooth application scenarios.

B. The type of fabric: the fabric is a major factor affecting the cohesive force, the more smooth the fabric, the lower the bond strength between the adhesive paper and the fabric, the adhesive in the heat transfer process, State, if the fabric smoothness, then provides less adhesive bond force. Encounter smooth elastic fabric, it is recommended to choose high-quality paper.

C. Ambient humidity: Sticky paper viscosity strength and the transfer process of water, the general high water, sticky will be strong. Some customers in the use of sticky paper in the process found that spring and summer sticky paper strength is very good, one to autumn and winter season, sticky paper sometimes sticky enough, most of this because the transfer process of paper and fabric moisture is too low to meet this The situation can try to put the fabric in a high humidity environment, the first moisture absorption and then transfer, and in addition to sticky paper when printing attention to control the degree of drying, do not make the transfer paper too dry.

D. Sticky sub-paper storage: Un-printed sticky paper should not be exposed to long-term air, which will reduce the sticky paper sticky, the sticky paper needs to be sealed. If the customer prints half of the sticky paper, as soon as possible to use the original plastic bag sealed good preservation, not long-term on the air. We have done a test, sealed intact self-adhesive transfer paper, save more than 6 months, sticky will not be weakened. Printed sticky paper to be timely transfer, the general printed good sticky paper if placed for several days, sticky will be weakened, because the water will continue to evaporate and the transfer paper coating viscosity decreased, the general requirements of printing good sticky paper in 2-24 Hours to complete the transfer, if too late to transfer also need to seal preservation.
