Inkjet Heat Transfer Ink for Epson Dx5/Dx7 Sublimation Ink Bulk Printing
What is Dye Sublimation? Dye sublimation is a process that uses a special heat sensitive dye to print graphics and text onto paper.
The paper is then placed on a sublimatable item and both are placed into a heat press for about 20~45 seconds at 180-230 degrees.
When the cycle(sublimation) is completed, the image on the paper has transferred to the item and has actually become a part of the surface. If you run your finger across the surface of a sublimated plate you will feel nothing.
The reason for this is that sublimation is always done on a polyester, polymer or polymer coated item. At high temperatures, the solid dye converts into a gas without ever becoming a liquid.
The same high temperature opens the pores of the polymer and allows the gas to enter.
When the temperature drops, the pores close and the gas reverts to a solid state.
It has now become a part of the polymer.
Sublimation Process 1. Design Your Transfer A computer, graphic design software, printer with sublimation inks, and a heat press are all you need to begin making full color items. With a scanner, digital camera or any electronic image or clip art you have a flexibility to create colorful designs and add photographs. Once you've created an electronic design, you can create as many or as few transfers as you needs. 2. Print Your Transfer With your sublimation printer and cartridges, you're ready to start printing transfers. Sublimation produces vibrant color that surpasses silk screening or hot stamping-perfectfor logos, photos, clip art or other images. 3. Heat Your Transfer Sublimation inks are specially formulated to convert directly from a solid to a gas under heat and pressure. While in a gaseous state, the inks are attracted to certain types of synthetic surface. The inks actually penetrate and bond with the Unisub surface so that apermanent, durable image is created. Other heat transfer methods only apply color to the surface of the substrate, resulting in a product that can be easily scratched or damaged. 4. Press Time & Temperature
