Why dye sublimation perfect work on polyester?
Sublimation is a scientific process in which the dyes are digitally printed as a solid onto transfer paper, and then has heat applied to it. This heating process turns the dye into a gas and when it hits the material it is intended to be printed on, absorbs and immediately turns back into a solid within the garment.
When it comes to picking a fabric for dye sublimation printing, polyester is the best choice. No other fabric, including cotton, silk or nylon is suitable for this type of printing.
