Why dye sublimation ink is the best choice for textile?


During the sublimation process, a thermal process occurs where the dye is transferred from a ribbon onto the specific surface. There are rollers inside of the sublimation printer and the paper or object that is being printed upon is moved back and forth to add the dye. The process is fast and is heated for quick and thorough dye application. Dye sublimation ink can make colors look simply beautiful.
Although the process may seem much more complicated than just using an inkjet printer, the process is much more accurate. Sublimation dyes are better for a reason and they have their advantages and of course, disadvantages as well.
Brighter Colors
For starters, sublimation ink is much brighter and prettier than traditional ink. Often, when you use a generic printer, the colors become faded over time or they are not as bright as you had hoped. This is because it is difficult for the printer to achieve the vibrant colors and shades of colors that you are after. With a sublimation printer, you are able to get the beautiful, bright colors without fade, and they are much more vibrant than the other choices.
Faster Drying
If you have ever printed out a piece of paper from a traditional printer and grabbed the sublimation paper as soon as it printer, you have come to know that the ink is not dry and you need to let it dry. Sublimation dyes dry almost immediately allowing you to grab the paper. The colors remain bright even once dried and do not smudge like traditional ink.

Color Infuses to the sublimation Paper
One of the main differences when using sublimation dye is that it fuses and meshes into the paper and does not become pixelated like with inkjet colors. You will find that the pictures look better and transfer over better than traditional printers.

How to sublimate on Nylon fabric and what should we focus on?

Dye Sublimation Printing is an innovative print processing that is an upgrade to the conventional screen printing of graphics onto fabric substrates. I have written several posts about dye sublimation specifically on making custom fabric banners, and most discussions are based on frequently asked questions. Basically, this is an online guide for those who want to know more about fabric banners and dye sublimation printing.
While it is possible to sublimate nylon at low temperatures, there are many types of nylon and they react differently to dyes.
There are some nylon fabrics that are pre-treated with additives to help with dye absorption, and the ones most commonly used in textiles are nylon. The latter, nylon, can be harder to dye, because it has a higher melting point at 265 C. Nylon  has a melting point of 215 C. we should use high density sublimation ink and tacky sublimation paper for Nylon.
There are a lot of mixed reactions online. Some printers claim that nylon will take on a more light vintage print, while some say that it can be even more vibrant that polyester. Some say that dye retention is great after washing while others say there will be transfer. However, there is a tendency for the dye to oxidize in the sunlight, which will fade over time.


So why nylon instead of polyester? It all comes down to what the fabric is being used for. For performance, polyester has better moisture wicking properties and pilling resistance (nylon absorbs more water, stays wet longer, and will impede breathability). The great thing about nylon is that it lasts longer (when dry) and it is much softer, smoother, and stretchier; as silk substitutes, nylon is great for hosiery and knitted garments.

If you believe nylon is still the better option for you, the key is to test, test, test. Each fabric blend must be tested to determine whether it is suitable for printing or not, as well as what temperature and time works best. So for your next sublimation printing project on nylon, let us help! So when Summer is coming and nylon sublimation is perfect for swimwear!

How does sublimation work on textile?

I am fascinated with how dye sublimation print processing embeds graphics onto fabric materials. And with that, I enjoy sharing my knowledge about it. It’s amazing how one discovers the notion of pressing dyes on a treated paper, transferring them onto a cloth substrate with heated rollers under high pressure, converting the dyes into gas and sealing them onto the polymeric structure of any polyester cloth item.
If it’s your first time to hear about sublimation pressing, or you heard and know about it and don’t know much, you might get a little confused with what I said in that last sentences of the above paragraph. Allow me to give you the details about the whole process.


Color Set
This print technology makes use of the color set CMYBK. However, instead of the usual cyan, magenta, yellow, and black combo, dye sub uses the cyan, magenta, yellow, and Overprint combo. This overprint tends to result to black in the process. I must admit that I don’t know how that exactly happens, but I know it ends up black and someone has that figured out since it works as it is.
  

Sublimation Paper Used
The dyes are imprinted onto a specified paper that is called the dye sublimation or heat transfer paper. At this level, it’s pretty much the same with digital printing, where graphics are pressed onto the paper.
Printing on Fabric
After printing on the special paper mentioned above, it’s time to embed the graphics onto the fabric. The cloth suitable for this kind of sublimate print method is anything that is made from polyester material. Fabrics that are polymer-based can work, but then the ideal material is the polyester. Cloth types include knit, sheer, satin, and a whole lot more.
Both the cloth and the paper are put into the pressure unit that has heated rollers at 400F. Flat units are also available. Moving on, they are fed in between the rollers at slow speed. In this process, the pressure and heat converts the dyes into colored gas (depending on what color is used), the polymers on the fabric opens up, and the dyes in gaseous state fills these pores. Once they cool down, the pores close back again with the embedded continuous tones of colors that appears like a photographic image as designed in the computer. The graphic is now embedded on the fabric permanently.

This print technology created a great advancement that did not exist before. And though this has been around for awhile, it has help bloom the display market with the new dye sub printing machines. It has become more and more popular as time goes by.

How to heat transfer sublimation ink onto polyester textile?

Usually, The dye sublimation inks are a disperse dye suspended in a liquid solvent, like water. The images are initially printed on coated heat-resistant transfer paper as a reverse image of the final design.
Transfer printing applications of disperse dyes, the sublimation temperature should be lower than the melting point of fiber macro molecules and the principle of not damaging the fabric strength, the polyester is more suitable processing temperature of 180-210 ℃. In this temperature range, the dye sublimation of the molecular weight of its varieties are between 230-270 degree. 
1) The first part is very simple and resembles exactly to normal process of digital printing. Precisely in the same manner, we print the artwork (as mirror image) on the sublimation transfer paper using sublimation ink .
2) Put the printed paper on substrates ,such as polyester and nylon fabric .
After digital printing, put the printed paper on the surface of the substrates , and with printed surface facing downwards on the surface of substrates.
3) Put both the paper and substrates on the heat press.
And heat ,time and pressure is applied using a heat press. The ink sublimates i.e. converts to gaseous form and gets deposited "into" the surface, thus transferring image.
4) Finally ,take out paper and fabric from heat press ,the final product will be born .

Sublimation textile digital printing with 57gsm high speed sublimation paper

The process of creating a Sublimation Textile with digital printing begins with graphic design.  Once the graphic for the garment has been created, an artist will output the design to a specialized transfer medium, the sublimation transfer paper, using a wide format industrial printer loaded with custom dye sublimation inks.  Specialized computer software translates the color requests from the software to the printer and the Sublimation Textile image is printed for application. 
Now, we R&D a 57gsm high speed Ultra light sublimation paper for high speed printer such MS high speed printer, D-GEN high speed printer etc.It is cost-effective and time-consuming. It is best for .bulk-production.
57GSM low weight sublimation paper is a kind of thin coating layer inkjet transfer paper, different from high weight paper, it doesn't have enough weight to support itself, so this kind of sublimation paper usually curled during sublimation printing. Crimping is mainly rub print head, effect the useful life of print head, and also is not convenience to cut the paper. besides, we have to know some points as below:
1)The humidity of the paper too high. 
2)Air drying Digital image color too deep. 
3)No coating at the back of paper 
4)The widest the paper is the easiest to crimp.

Usually, low weight sublimation paper is jumbo roll rather than small roll, considering its relative low price and cost-effective, this type sublimation paper is usually used for industry large quantities of textile printing, such as for banners, garments, bed sheets, curtains, etc.

Suitable for high density sublimation ink, but also for ordinary sublimation ink. Applicable pattern: Floral type or light-colored . Transfer mode: Adapt to large format print it can improve transfer efficiency!

How does Laser cutting machine work?

Laser cutting is a technology that uses a laser to cut materials, and is typically used for industrial manufacturing applications, but is also starting to be used by schools, small businesses, and hobbyists. Laser cutting works by directing the output of a high-power laser most commonly through optics. The laser optics and CNC (computer numerical control) are used to direct the material or the laser beam generated. 

Usually, laser cutting machine is used for Acrylic, clothing, leather, pillow, advertising decoration, craft gifts, paper products etc.
The high power density results in rapid heating, melting and partial or complete vaporizing of the material. When cutting mild steel, the heat of the laser beam is enough to start a typical “oxy-fuel” burning process, and the laser cutting gas will be pure oxygen, just like an oxy-fuel torch. When cutting stainless steel or aluminum, the laser beam simply melts the material, and high pressure nitrogen is used to blow the molten metal out of the kerf.
On a vision laser cutter, the laser cutting head is moved over the metal plate in the shape of the desired part, thus cutting the part out of the plate. A capacitive height control system maintains a very accurate distance between the end of the nozzle and the plate that is being cut. This distance is important, because it determines where the focal point is relative to the surface of the plate. Cut quality can be affected by raising or lowering the focal point from just above the surface of the plate, at the surface, or just below the surface.
There are many, many other parameters that affect cut quality as well, but when all are controlled properly, laser cutting is a stable, reliable, and very accurate cutting process.

If you have some ideas or problems about laser cutting machine, welcome to share with us. thanks.

How does Epson’s Micro Piezo print head work?

In the Epson Micro Piezo print head, microscopic piezoelectric elements (like crystals and ceramics) are built behind the print nozzles. When an electrical charge is applied to them, these elements bend backward, forcing precise amounts of ink onto the substrate (see Diagram 1). Because electrical charges can be turned on and off like a switch, there is a vast amount of control over the rate of ink being ejected through the nozzle while also creating perfectly spherical dots at different droplet sizes.
Different from Piezo print head, there is another print head, thermal print head, what the comparison between them?
Piezo print head: 
Pros: 
  • Precise and Variable Droplet Sizes
  • Can use wide range of inks due to low temperature (solvent, UV, pigment, dye) 
  • Droplet sizes down to 1.5 picoliter
  • Run longer due to cooler temperature
Cons: 
  • More Expensive Heads 
  • Fewer Print Heads Per Printer
Thermal print head:
Pros:
  • Less Expensive Print Heads 
  • More Print Heads Per Printer
Cons: 
  • Only 2 different droplet sizes
  • Larger droplet size
  • Limited ink options due to extreme heat
  • Need to be replaced more often due to high heat
