How to judge the quality of Digital Inks?
(1. Particle Size: small particle size of digital sublimation ink refracts or scatters very little light providing a large color gamut as well as allowing the dye to
“seep” into most media. As a rule of thumb, the smaller the particles the better will be the result. And, ink particle size less than 30um will not clog the print
(2. Color fastness +Washing fastness +Light fastness: terms used in the dyeing of textile materials that characterizes a material’s color’s resistance to
fading or running,such as light, water, washing. Usually use high-quality digital printing ink, the grade is generally 3-4, the better is 4-5, and the best is 5.
(3. Color saturation: When buying ink for your sublimation printer, you should only choose the ink with high color reduction. This will ensure that images
printed on the fabrics or mugs are vivid and sharp. So, please choose the ink with higher color saturation.
(4. Environment friendly: Printing products may come into contact with human skin, or often exported and imported, so whether the ink is environmentally
friendly is the guarantee of quality as well.
