Do you know how to test the sample of dye sublimation paper? Today we are going to share a post about this question.
Check the test reports which are given by your supplier. The testing reports are made in the original lab by the researching people, it contains every vital factor of the sublimation transfer paper, and all the dates are authoritative and credible.
2. Check the appearance of the paper when you receive the sample
A.Smoothness: Smoothness could be identified easily by looking at the surface of the dye sublimation paper. With a good quality sublimation paper, the printing surface is very smooth. Because if the printing surface is too rough (sometimes we could see small particles on the surface in a bad paper), it will scratch the high-precision piezo print head and hurt it very badly.
B.Impurity : Check if there are many small dots on the paper. When you are transferring pure color(only one color) , the dots will influence the transfer result seriously.
3. Test the paper with your equipment
A.Drying Time: When you are printing the paper, you could test the drying time. A quick-dry paper will improve your working efficiency a lot.
Our fast dry sublimation printing paper will dry in 40-50 seconds, sticky paper in 3 minutes under the normal printing condition.
B.Transfer efficiency : This is the MOST IMPORTANT. The transfer efficiency is ,First how much ink the paper could deliver to the textile during the transfer process, Second, the color restoration. According to our test, our transfer efficiency is 96%.
C.The final testing result is related with your printer and ink, when you are firstly test the dye sublimation paper and the result doesn’t come very ideal, you’d better adjust your printing and transfer setting based on the sample. An new ICC file will be very useful for reaching the best result.
