Sublimation Ink – What Should We Pay Attention to When Replacing It?

Sublimation printer usually use different sublimation ink, but because of different inks have different chemical reagents and different solutions, and chemical composition and color composition of the system have a certain difference, therefore, in the high frequency of the replacement process , A little carelessness will cause a certain degree of damage to the machine. So what should we pay attention to when replacing ink?

1.Pigment ink conversion, especially when the pigment to the dye conversion, please clear the original ink, and then use the cleaning solution or pure water to clean the pipeline, otherwise the chemical substances in the ink may be a chemical reaction plug the nozzle.

2.The use of hot foam machine users, in the filling of the sublimation ink must be empty when the air, otherwise it will cause the ink head burning, reduce the nozzle life, or may cause damage to the ink head, or print broken ink.

3.The use of new dye sublimation ink, because the ink head and ink need to have a fusion time, within a few hours within the test strip broken line for the normal phenomenon; such as monochrome or all not ink, or prolonged use, (Less than two-thirds) or excessive (enriched) in the ink bag, or in the presence of air in the pipe, scraping the waste ink, Pipe air and handle the ink bag parts, as well as clean the net part.

4.The piezoelectric machine is best to print test drawings every day to keep the nozzle wet; long-term shutdown, the boot once a week to ensure that the ink pipeline and ink head moist.

Analyze The Main Two Substrate for Sublimation Paper Printing-Hard And Soft!

 

 

As we know sublimation paper printing main can do two substrate, hard and soft, today we will analyze the different between this two kind.

Hard Substrates

When decorating hard substrates, use heat-resistant tape to attach the transfer page to the product. Do not tape across the image area, as this can often damage the image quality. Press the product normally, and then remove the transfer carefully. Heat tape can be purchased from your distributor.

Soft Substrates

One of the most common difficulties in working with soft substrates is having dust, lint and other fibers from the air imprint into the fabric when pressing. This will leave little blue marks on the fabric, which can detract from the quality of your digital sublimation print.

The best way to reduce this to use a sticky lint roller before each press. A simple tape-based roller that you buy at the local grocery store will lift most of the particles that you can see, and many others that are invisible to the naked eye. It’s a good idea to get into the habit of lint rolling fabrics before placing the heat transfer paper.

To use spray adhesive, spray a light mist on the image side of the transfer paper from about 30cm away. Do not spray the product. Then, simply press the transfer paper to the product. If you position it incorrectly, you can lift it off and reposition it.It is difficult to tape to soft substrates, like t-shirts and mousepads. Instead, you can use a repositionable adhesive spray to tack the transfer paper to the product.

We supplier many kinds Sublimation Material like sublimation ink, sublimation printer also the dye sublimation paper , any need, pls feel free to let me know, we will waiting for you!

For Digital Sublimation Printing: Which Fabric is Suitable?

Digital sublimation printing often referred to sublimation printing too, which is a modern way of printing artworks onto special garments to make them look attractive or pass a particular message. However, do you know what fabrics can you print ?

The answer is you do need at least 60% polyester fabric to make sublimation. It is better to use 100% polyester. The reason is you will attain a superior print if 100% of the fabric accepts the dye when it enters gas form and is inducted into the open polymer pores.

Do you know why polyester fabric is the best product for dye sublimation? Because in one part of the process, the temperature of large format heat press machine must be in excess of 370º F (190ºC) to cause the dye to be converted into a gaseous form, and also to cause the polymer’s cells to open as they expand to accept the now gaseous dye into the cells. And without the cellular construction of the polyester fabric and it’s polymeric qualities, it would not be possible to print using digital sublimation printing. So, the more polymers, the better.

As we all known, there are two types of sublimation paper for printing, fast dry and sticky paper. Fast dry sublimation paper can be applied to polyester, nylon, and other fabrics, Sticky paper can be used for Lycra, spandex and other elastic fabrics.

Note: Digital Sublimation Printing can not be used for 100% cotton fabric. Because cotton fabric can not withstand high temperatures, but you can use T-shirt transfer paper. 🙂
