How Does Heat Press Printing Works On Dye Sublimated Fabrics?

How Does Heat Press Printing Works On Dye Sublimated Fabrics? Most polyester fabrics, such as many of the popular “Performance Garments”, are dyed using a sublimation process. The dye sublimation process uses high heat to permanently fuse the colorant into a polyester fabric.

Heat serves two critical functions in this dying process. First, the heat causes the pores of the polyester fabric to open up, so the material can accept the dye. And second, the heat converts the solid ink dye on a sublimation transfer paper into a gas.

Under pressure of the heat press, the gaseous dye is forced into the open pores of the polyester. As the temperature drops, the pores close up capturing the dye inside of the bonds to the substrate.

The sublimated color is very durable because the dye becomes an integral part of the fabric, rather than a colorant on the outside of the fibers of the fabric, which can bleed and fade. Sublimated fabrics can be washed again and again, without losing the vibrancy of its color.

There’s one slight catch, though. When you heat press an applique onto a sublimated garment, the high heat can release the dye in the fabric. These dyes can then migrate and discolor a heat transfer vinyl applique.

Discoloration resulting from dye migration does not occur immediately. Instead it is a gradual process, which may take as long as 72 hours to occur. For example, a white applique heat pressed onto a black sublimated garment is likely to turn gray over time.

Several Tips In the Process of Roll Heat Transfer Printing

Today, we are sharing you with several tips to ensure the quality of the roll heat transfer printing.

1.The transfer speed and the hot roller temperature should be adjusted properly. The temperature must wait for the temperature to fluctuate up and down three times after reaching the set temperature. And performe the transfer operation after the temperature is stable.

2.Depending on the weight or stiffness of the paper, fine tune the pressure between the felt and the hot roll.

3.To maintain the same degree of tension between the transfer paper and the fabric, stabilize the proper tension.

4.Before transfer printing, make a transfer sample to determine if the temperature and speed of the affected color are appropriate.

5.Before the transfer, we need to blow and defragment the printed surface of the transfer paper and the fabric to remove paper dust, cilia and other attachments.So as to avoid the print defects caused by the inclusion of these debris in the transfer paper and the fabric.

6.To ensure that the transfer paper is dry, the transfer paper with a large amount of moisture will generate a large amount of water vapor during the heat sublimation process. That will cause the transfer paper to soften and lose its stiffness, causing problems such as oblique walking and water ripple.

7.When transferring, you can cut the front of the paper and fabric into inverted V-shape to let the middle advanced. Or you can use the cardboard leading end larger than the width of the transfer paper. So that the entire surface can be smoothly and smoothly fed into the transfer machine. Avoid crushing and pulling leads to wrinkles on transfer.

8.During the transfer process, we should fast separate the paper. That will prevent the paper cloth from coming into contact with it to cause secondary sublimation transfer and ghosting.

9.Pay attention to the safety of the operation during the transfer process. Don’t be close to approach the hot roller and to avoid high temperature burns.

Why We Say Our Sublimation Heat Press Machine Are Better Than Others?

 

 

For a sublimation heat press manufacture, we always say that our machine are better than others, today we will share you the detail advantages we have. As we can see that the high end heat press machine temperature constant printing quality even higher machine stability and life of up to 10 years, in short, for large business users, our high heat transfer machine but has a lower operating cost.

Most core components of roller heat transfer machine is heating roller, transfer rate depends largely on the transfer time, temperature and pressure, the same transfer time and pressure, and temperature difference of one or two degrees, the transfer rate is very different. For precise temperature control, becomes the main indicator for measuring heat transfer machine, and that’s all, are mainly on the structure of the heating roller.

 

As shown in figure, as shown, some rollers are heating roller completely closed, the benefit of this is heat-conducting oil not added on a regular basis, but because of thermal expansion and contraction, it is impossible to make all full of heated rollers, the upper part is a vacuum, in theory, this part of the temperature be lower than other parts.

 

Our rotary heat press is not although the need to regularly add oil , but the heated rollers are 100% oil-filled, so that not only the entire roller surface can maintain a good temperature, available surface also increased significantly.

Our machine’s heating roller constructed two machines differ from heating roller heating method, heating wires in vacuum tubes, through infrared radiation to heat conduction oil; and our printing machinery is directly heated, so that preheating and shut down the cooling time of the machine as a whole, are greatly reduced, efficiency is higher.

 

We do heat press machine business for about 8 year, we have different size and colour machine, if have any interest, pls feel free to contact me!

Do You Want A New Rotary Heat Press Machine With The Good Quality?

 

 

Rotary heat press machines like this are used in many types of applications. You can use it to print fabric rolls, make signage, make flags, use cut parts to cut and sew garments, and even make ribbons or long strips.

Roll-to-roll rotary sublimation heat press this type of rotary press is used to transfer your design to a roll of fabric. Items required to use a roll-to-roll rotary press include pre-printed transfer paper, tissue and fabric. The pre-printed transfer paper has a slight tack and is used to hold the fabric in place. The thin paper keeps sublimation ink from entering the belt around the drum.

The fabric you use will always consist of polyester, polyester blend or some other polyester coated substrate. A roll-to-roll spinning machine usually has three expansions and three rewinds. The three items listed above are loaded onto the unwinding bar of the rotary press. They gather together and pass through a press, wrapping around a heated drum. This part of the process is called “residence time”, which is where the sublimation process takes place. The rewinding rod then rolls up the now printed fabric, used dye heat transfer paper and used tissue.

Platen Type Heat Press vs. Rotary Drum Heat Press

Nowadays heat transfer printing has gained significant importance and favor in several industries – especially in the apparel industry as an alternative for printing fabric in an agile manufacturing environment.

Applications of Heat Transfer

Point of purchase banners, signage, displays, skirting, carpeting, etc.
Advertising specialties – mouse pads, wrist pads, beverage insulators, clip boards, etc.
Ceramic tiles, wall murals and interior design
Snow skis, snow boards, cycling helmets, in-line skates, water sports equipment
Gaming tables , chips
Lettering, Rhinestones/crystals
Uni-sub wood, clipboards, plaques, signage, vending machines message boards, table tops, counter tops, flooring, etc.
Microfiber based sports apparel, T-shirts, caps, swimsuits, jackets, tote bags, cut apparel parts, large format textiles, etc.

rotary drum heat press

Heat transfer machine is of two types: Platen type heat press and rotary drum heat press

1. Platen Type Heat Press

Platen presses are often used for printing on individual pieces such as cut apparel parts, T-shirts, sports apparel, tote bags, etc. Platen presses are also used to print on rigid substrates such as wood, metals and ceramic tiles.

2. Rotary Drum Heat Press

These machines are often used to print fabric continuously (roll to roll) and to print large fabric parts such as signs and banners which may be too large for a standard platen press. Drum machines can also be used to print sports apparel and other cut apparel parts. Drum machines are more productive than platen machines for sublimation printing on cut apparel parts and are therefore used when production volume is high. Drum machines are not used however to print onto rigid substrates such as wood, metal or ceramic tile.

The right machine depends on the type of product to be printed, the print size and the production requirements. If you wish to print full coverage on 60″ wide goods, you would need to use a Rotary Drum machine. T-shirts, mugs, wood or tile are best printed on a platen machine. Cut apparel parts can be printed on either a platen press or a rotary drum machine. Production requirements often dictate which type of machine is used. Banners and soft signage are often printed on a rotary drum machine.
