What’s the Influence of Humidity on Sublimation Transfer Papers?

sublimation transfer paperDo you know why the instruction manual that comes with sublimation transfer papers also specifies the humidity levels it should be stored at? Specifying humidity levels for paper storage hardly makes any sense, other than giving an impression that you must be using a high-end product. But the matter of fact is there’s indeed a link between the performance of a transfer paper and the humidity levels it is exposed to (stored at).

1. What humidity does to a transfer paper?

A sublimation transfer paper can absorb and retain an enormous amount of moisture. It’s like a sponge. The problem is that if it absorbs moisture in excess, at the time of printing, the trapped moisture in the transfer paper can flash to steam and blow away the ink from its target area. This can result in printing artifacts such as color shifting, uneven transfer and bleeding of the image.

sublimation paperTherefore, manufacturers specify optimum humidity levels for transfer paper storage so that the paper doesn’t absorb moisture in excess from its stored environment. Failure to comply with the instructions is likely to affect the performance of transfer paper at the time of sublimation printing.

2. What if a sublimation paper gets exposed to high humidity levels?

Before using the paper, set it on the press for a few seconds. Place it 2 to 3 inches below the heat plate. The heat from the pressing machine should help evaporate the absorbed moisture. If the image has already been transferred onto the paper, you can employ the same strategy to save the print, however, the final transfer may appear slightly faded or washed out.

How to Store Dye Sublimation Ink in A Proper Way

Dye sublimation ink is an essential consumable for sublimation printing. Knowing how to store it properly is vital if you want it to last longer and reduce overheads. Furthermore, proper storage of dye sublimation ink also ensures that the product doesn’t lose its properties during storage, which can otherwise affect the print quality.

1. Store Away From Sunlight

Most dye sublimation inks are water based. As such, if you store them in sunlight, the heat can cause the water to evaporate, making the ink more viscous. Using thick sublimation inks can damage your printer head nozzles, while the print quality is also likely to get affected.

Moreover, UV energies carried by sunlight can also cause chemical decomposition of dye sublimation inkthe ink material. This can cause ink to fade in color, and you’ll have to get your stock replaced prematurely.

2. Keep in Air Tight Containers

It’s strongly advised that you keep sublimation inks in air tight containers. If exposed to air, dye sublimation ink can dry, which can make them inappropriate for use.

Furthermore, believe it or not, but exposure to air can also cause certain bacteria to grow in your dye sublimation ink. These bacteria can naturally degrade the ink material.

It’s a good idea to retain original packaging and using it when storing your dye sublimation ink, but if you have mistakenly discarded it, you can store the ink in air tight plastic bottles. These bottles are easily available at local stores.

3. Keep the Batches Separate

xOften to save space, some people mix old sublimation ink (of course, of same color) with a new batch and store them in the same bottle. This practice must be avoided.

Firstly because, the old ink may be nearing its expiration date and as such mixing it with a new ink batch can reduce the product’s shelf life.

Secondly, if an old batch is contaminated with air bubbles or bacteria, mixing it with the new batch of ink can also contaminate the other product.

Exercise proper storage of dye sublimation ink – it would allow you to use them for longer, while maintaining high quality prints.

Three Things to Use the Roller Printing Machine Correctly

rotary heat transfer calenderIf you want to use the roller printing machine correctly, then we need to do three things. The first thing is to do a comprehensive reading and understanding of the equipment instructions. This is very important. Do not feel that the device’s instructions are too thick to read, or feel that you can see the various buttons on the machine successfully and there is no need to see the instructions. The instructions must be seen so that you can have a better understanding of the design principles and components of the device. So you can be better aware of some vulnerable parts of the device when it is used.

rotary heat transfer calenderFor the correct use of the roller printing machine, the second thing needs people to pay attention and insist on it, that is to you must have a comprehensive inspection of the equipment before the use of the machine. That is, before we use this device, We should all check it out to make sure that the function of this device is perfect and good to use, so that it can be officially started. This is very important for everyone, so that the son can get better use effect, let everybody can get better enjoyment in this respect.

These are very important for us, and the third thing to use a roller printing machine is that the accurate setting of the related printing parameters of this equipment. Each rotary heat transfer calenderkind of different printing demand has its own different parameters. We need to understand these aspects well before printing and the corresponding adjustment in the equipment. This can ensure that the printing effect is accurate.

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. After continuous improvement of the product, to ensure product quality can also be profit at the same time to the minimum, to ensure that customers enjoy the best price and the best quality products.
