What is Dye Sublimation Printing?What Do You Need for It?

what is dye sublimation printing?Now,I share you something about it —— Dye Sublimation printing is a technique that uses heat sensitive inks. These inks turn into gas under the influence of heat and combine with a polyester medium. Since the ink becomes part of the structure of the material, the images on the fabric don’t fade or crack – even after multiple washings.

Then what do you need for it?You need various items to create sublimated textiles including flags, displays, sportswear, fashion, interior decoration and much more.

1. Printer and ink

A high-quality printer equipped with sublimation inks is essential. The Oric and Epson printer that are specifically designed for sublimation printing. The printers are available with Texart ink in four (CMYK) or eight colours (C,M,Y,BK,LC, LM). These inks have many colour-giving elements and are highly concentrated, which is necessary to create beautiful, vivid and crisp images.

2. Software

You also need a software to control your printer and to manage your print jobs. Therefore, when you invest in a printer, you are sure that you also have the ideal software at your disposal to run your machine. It has a perfect colour management and a multi-colour engine .

3. Transfer paper (sublimation paper)

To create high-quality sublimation prints, you need a transfer paper that has high ink absorption and dries quickly. The paper needs to stay flat and may not wave after printing. It is also important that the paper releases the ink when heating. The Sublimation transfer Paper does all that and is therefore the perfect paper for your sublimation prints.

4. Calender

Printing is only the first step of the dye sublimation process. For sublimation to take place, you need heat and pressure. Heat presse machine come in a variation of sizes and shapes, but you need a calender for roll-to-roll sublimation. Our company offers many kinds heat press, with a professional calender system that is fast, affordable and easy to use, making it a perfect finishing partner for the sublimation printers.

5. Textile

When choosing a textile for sublimation printing, it is important that you take a polyester fabric that is pre-shrunk. This avoids shrinking when heat is applied.

6. Laser Cutting Machine

For printing products you also need a Laser Cutting Machine. With a laser, cutting your fabrics and textiles to size can be done with both efficiency and ease. Laser engraving your materials can provide both a tactile effect and unparalleled high-quality finish. Whether your application is cutting unique and fine detailed shapes out of polyester, or engraving on a wide variety of other materials, laser engraving machines offer nearly endless design possibilities. Even applications with synthetic substances can be laser engraved, as these types of materials react very well during processing. Laser machines are ideal for processing polyester, because they perfectly seal the edges once heat is applied from the laser beam, and the material is left without any fraying.
