How to Solve the Problem that Sublimation Transfer Paper Dries Too Slow?

When you use sublimation paper, you may encounter this question- Why the sublimation paper dries too slow? There are many reasons that cause the sublimation paper dries slow. Today, we will make a brief analysis on it.

With the development of high speed machine, like EPSON, MIMAKI and MUTOH. The traditional sublimation transfer paper are updating to fast dry too. If the paper dries too slowly, it will influence the production badly, so now, the fast dry sublimation paper already replaced the traditional sublimation paper. But still many clients meet the problem with the drying speed. There are many factors as the below information:

The drying time is related with the printing temperature and the relative humidity, sublimation papernormally the recommended printing temperature is 25℃ (77℉). And relative humidity is 53%.

If the temperature is below 25℃ (77℉) , there’s no enough heat for the paper to dry very fast. On the other hand, if the relative humidity is higher than 53%, which means there are too much moisture in the air, it’s like in the raining days, the clothes always dry very slowly.

When you meet with those two problem, one extra heat drier or dehumidifier will help you solve the problem very easily.

Most of the new printers, like EPSON, it has a build-in drier in the printer itself, if you are still using the old machine (plotter), it’s better to set up an extra heat drier, or update your machine into the new one. Buy a new machines seems rather expensive, but in a long way, it will solve more problems and save your cost.

How to Store Our Sublimation Transfer Paper?

Sublimation transfer paper is one of the main materials of the sublimation printing. In order to ensure the quality of the paper, we should to remember the following suggestions about how to store sublimation paper.

Checking
When receive the digital sublimation paper, we should first check whether the appearance of the paper in the transport process is damaged: First, whether transfer paper plastic packaging is broken and packaging cartons is damped. What is more, whether carton serious is deformed, paper roll is deflated. The last, whether packaging carton is piercing, puncture transfer paper, etc. Such a sublimation paper should be rejected.

dye sublimation paperDamp Proof
No matter which type of paper is very sensitive to the humidity in the air, the water content of the paper changes with the humidity of the air. Therefore, sublimation transfer paper is preferably stored in a low humidity environment. And, the ideal storage conditions are relative humidity 40-70% RH, temperature 10-30 ℃, stacked on the stack in order to avoid moisture.

sublimation printingStacking
Stacking, such as the shape of the pyramid, or separated according to the width of stacked size, stacking layer should not exceed the limit marked outside the carton, generally not more than 5 layers.

Avoid Direct Sunlight
Paper contains lignin, when it through the sun after insolation, the moisture content of the paper will be evaporated. Then, the sublimation paper will be embrittlement or deformation.

What Cause Dye Sublimation Paper Dry So Slow?

When our clients use dye sublimation paper, they may encounter one problem: What cause paper dry so slow? Then they think we give them bad paper, is this the only reason? Of course not! And, lets analyze completely today!

Printing Temperature and Humidity
The drying time is related with the printing temperature and the relative humidity, dye sublimation paper normally the recommended printing temperature is 25℃ (77℉). And relative humidity is 53%. If the temperature is below 25℃ (77℉) , there’s no enough heat for the paper to dry very fast. On the other hand, if the relative humidity is higher than 53%, which means there are too much moisture in the air, it’s like in the raining days, the clothes always dry very slowly. Each country has their different climate, like in Colombia has a raining season every year, at the raining season, the humidity is higher, the sublimation transfer paper may dries slower than other seasons. But in Pakistan is subtropical climate, high temperature and less rain, the sublimation paper drying will not be a problem due to climate reason. So different countries under different climate type, the sublimation paper works different there.

sublimation printingSublimation Ink
Take care your digital textile ink. Some clients buy the cheap sublimation ink (10-30 usd per liter), which the major component is water, not sublimation dye, so in fact , you are printing water to the digital sublimation paper rather than sublimation ink, no doubt the paper is drying too slowly.?

digital sublimation printing When you meet with those two problem, one extra heat drier or dehumidifier will help you solve the problem very easily.

Most of the new printers, like EPSON, it has a build-in drier in the printer itself, if you are still using the old machine (plotter), it’s better to set up an extra heat drier, or update your machine into the new one.
