1. Sublimation Ink Types

Sublimation Offset Transfer Ink (Litho-Press Offset Ink), Sublimarion Screen Transfer Ink, Sublimation Gravure Transfer Ink (Rotogravure Transfer Ink) and Sublimation Digital Transfer Ink!

2. How does sublimation transfer ink works?

It it used on all kinds of offset machine. With the ink,first print image on paper, then transfer the image onto various materials by heat transfer press, especially for polyester fabric. Under high temperature, the ink will become gas and go into fabric.

3.Sublimation Transfer Printing Papers

Offset paper, Coated paper, Cardboard, Chrome paper, Calendered paper.

4. Suitable Fabrics

Polyester fabric, Triacetate fabric, Nylon fabric, Acrylic fabric, Polypropylene nitrile.

5.The printing process just needs 3 steps

(1)Print the image on paper, and normal paper is ok.

(2)Put the printed paper on substrate, such as polyester and nylon fabric.

(3)Put the paper and fabric on the heat-transfer machine. When the temperature reaches 180-220°C, the image will be transfer printed from paper onto the substrate.

The following is the transfer printing parameters for your reference
