Dye sublimation ink (also known as thermal transfer ink) is to make low-energy, easy-to-sublimate disperse dyes into digital printing inks, and print them on transfer paper. By heating, the images can be made beautiful in a relatively short period. Porcelain, metal, silk, chemical fiber cloth, and other materials are very suitable for the market needs of individualized development and the requirements of environmental protection. Next, we will introduce the production and application of sublimation ink.
Mainly divided into the following contents:
l Features of sublimation ink
l Application fields of sublimation ink

Features of sublimation ink
First of all, the image transferred by the sublimation ink is bright in color and rich in layers, and its effect is comparable to printing. The difference is that the sublimation ink sublimates the heat transfer ink under high temperatures and penetrates the surface of the medium. After sublimation, The image can be formed. Therefore, no glue film will be formed on the surface of the medium, and the image will not fall off or crack, and it has strong light resistance and will not fade for a long time. In addition, the sublimation ink is to print the sublimation ink on special paper. By heating, the image can be produced on exquisite porcelain, metal, silk, chemical fiber cloth, and other materials in a short time to achieve photo-level The quality, vivid colors, clear images, and long-term preservation are very suitable for the market needs of personalized development.
Application fields of sublimation ink
In the field of advertising display, sublimation ink can be used for the mass printing of banners and banners. For light industrial products: sublimation inks play an extremely important role in printing (shoes, hats, boxes, bags, umbrellas, ties), clothing accessories, ribbon printing, and other professional fields. In addition, in the field of product manufacturing, such as ceramics, cups, plates, tiles (with acrylic drying paint on the surface), and craft products, keychains, couple cups, mobile phone covers, pillows, etc. are also inseparable from the intense color of sublimation ink. Finally, sublimation inks are also suitable for fabric pattern transfer in the clothing processing industry, such as fabric printing and dyeing, sportswear, swimwear, non-woven fabrics, T-shirts, etc.
How to make sublimation ink and application materials
Dye sublimation ink is a kind of thermal transfer ink. This process is to print the ink on paper and then transfer it to the substrate. According to the sublimation characteristics of the dye, after the sublimation ink encounters high temperature, the sublimation of the ink is inside the substrate instead of on the surface. Under certain conditions of temperature, pressure, and time, the ink sublimates into a gas phase and transfers it from the printed paper to the fabric (such as sportswear, non-woven bags, clothing, handicrafts, layered metal, etc.). The gas-phase sublimation and diffusion effect enters the interior of the fabric to achieve the purpose of coloring, and there is no hand feeling after printing.
In addition, the material needed for this sublimation is ink, and the sublimation ink is also called thermal transfer ink, which is to make low-energy, easy-to-sublimate disperse dyes into digital printing inks and print them on transfer paper. By heating, the image can be filled into exquisite porcelain, metal, silk, chemical fiber cloth, and other materials in the shortest time, which is very suitable for the market needs of personalized development and the requirements of environmental protection.
