l Comparison of the advantages of sublimation ink and thermal transfer ink
l What are the advantages of sublimation ink transfer products?
Sublimation inks are mostly formulated with disperse dyes for textiles. Disperse dyes are widely used in textile printing and dyeing due to their saturated colors and good weather resistance. So far, sublimation links are still one of the main raw materials in the printing and dyeing industry. The traditional textile printing and dyeing industry has serious environmental pollution problems in the process of dyeing with dispersed pigments, and it is not suitable for small batch production. Sublimation inks are very useful.
Through the comparison of the two, it is not difficult to see that the dye sublimation ink has complete chromatogram, bright color, good color strength, colorfastness, washing degree above 4.5, good ink fluency, no toxic side effects, no pollution, and environmental protection.
In addition, the image transferred by thermal transfer ink is colorful and rich in layers, and its effect is comparable to printing. The difference with sublimation ink is that thermal transfer is to sublime the thermal transfer ink under high temperature, penetrate the surface of the medium, and sublime. After that, 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.
The sublimation ink transfer printing process has rich patterns, bright colors, ever-changing, small color difference, good reproducibility, and the image will not fall off, crack and fade, and is abrasion-resistant and light-resistant, so the sublimation ink transfer products are more The advantages of durability. Excellent ink balance, clear dot restoration, fast complete fixation, and stable on-board. It can achieve the effect of designing patterns and is suitable for mass wholesale production. The sublimation ink transfer process is processed by a heat transfer machine (heat and pressure) to transfer the exquisite pattern on the transfer film to the surface of the product, and the ink layer and the product after forming. The surface melt into one body, which is vivid and beautiful, which greatly improves the grade of the product. Products that have been maturely developed using thermal transfer technology include clothes, cloth bags, hats, pillows, mousepads, coasters, pennants, mirror boxes, etc. hundreds of products.

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
l How to make sublimation ink and application materials
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.
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.
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.

In recent years, with the continuous prosperity of the photo inkjet market, various types of photo printers have appeared on the market, as well as a variety of inks for photo printers. According to the solvent, it can be divided into water-based and non-water-based ink. Water-based inks can be classified into pigment-based, dye-based, and sublimation inks that we are going to talk about today; non-water-based inks can be divided into oil-based pigment inks and solvent-based pigment inks. Today we are talking about what types of sublimation inks are there?
The main contents are as follows
l Sublimation ink can be divided into pure cotton digital printing
l Sublimation ink can also be divided into digital chemical fiber printing
l Main points of maintenance of digital printing machine for pure cotton fabric
Let us first introduce the characteristics of pure cotton fabrics printed with sublimation inks. Advantages: sweat-absorbent, breathable, soft, sensitive, easy to clean, not easy to fluff; moisture absorption: cotton fiber has good moisture absorption. Under normal circumstances, the fiber can absorb water into the surrounding atmosphere, and its moisture content is 8-10%, So it touches human skin, makes people feel soft but not stiff and moisturizing, so it also makes the product experience of sublimation ink better. Because cotton fiber is a poor conductor of heat and electricity, the thermal conductivity is extremely low, and because the cotton fiber itself is porous, it is also more comfortable for products printed with sublimation ink. Hygiene: Cotton fiber is a natural fiber, its main component is cellulose, and a small number of waxy substances, nitrogenous substances, and pectin, which is also a major advantage of sublimation ink products.
Sublimation ink digital printing and dyeing technology is divided into two categories, namely, cotton fabric printing and dyeing technology and chemical fiber fabric printing and dyeing technology. The difference between the sublimation ink digital printing and dyeing technologies is the ink used and the production process of digital printing and dyeing of pure cotton fabrics. The printing inks used are divided into reactive dye inks and acid dye inks for digital printing and dyeing of chemical fiber fabrics. The printing ink heads used sublimate disperse dye inks. The production process of digital thermal transfer printing and dyeing of chemical fiber fabrics is pattern design, output printing, sublimation ink transfer ink, finished product, and digital printing and dyeing production process of pure cotton fabric: pattern design is always spraying, fixing, drying, and finished product.
(a)Usually pay attention to the maintenance of the fifth-generation head of the sublimation ink printer and insist on cleaning the nozzle after printing the goods.
(b)Test the printing test paper of the sublimation ink print head before shipping the goods every day.
(c)The selected pure cotton fabric should not exceed 5m, otherwise, it will be easily scratched. (d)The color card must be checked every time the print head is shipped to avoid unnecessary production.
(e)When the dye sublimation ink printer finishes printing, remember to put the head back to its original position.
(f)Do not wipe the nozzle by hand.
(g)Pay attention to spread the cloth evenly when playing the cut pieces, align the card position, and print.

The authors of the report have analyzed both developing and developed regions considered for the research and analysis of the global Sublimation Printing Ink market. The regional analysis section of the report provides an extensive research study on different regional and country-wise Sublimation Printing Ink industry to help players plan effective expansion strategies. Iron-on decals have been around as early as the 1960s, and by the early 2000s, computer software allowed users to be able to create their own T-shirts. Over the years, heat transfer vinyl T-shirts have been popular because they could be made at home with an iron, but many would complain that the decals would peel off over time. Sublimation, in recent years, is becoming more common because the ink adheres to the fabric better than vinyl. The process is also not out of reach of amateur shirt-makers. Sublimation printers run between $600 and $700 on Amazon, and for those not wanting to pay that much, they can repurpose an old inkjet printer by purchasing empty ink cartridges and filling them with sublimation ink, which is available at different online distributors.
Sublimation ink (also known as thermal transfer ink) is to make low-energy, easily sublimable disperse dyes into digital printing ink, print it on transfer paper, and heat it to make the image beautiful in a short time. Materials such as porcelain, metal, silk, chemical fiber cloth, etc. are very suitable for the market needs of personalized development and the requirements of environmental protection. So what should we pay attention to when using sublimation ink?
The following content
l What is special about water-based sublimation ink?
l What are the requirements for the operation of the characteristics of the sublimation ink?
l What should be paid attention to when preparing sublimation ink?
The production of water-based sublimation ink requires a very high level of nano-dispersion technology and nano-scale disperse dye paste. However, because disperse dyes are insoluble in water and extremely difficult to disperse, and the production of ultra-fine particle sublimation inks requires special dispersion equipment and nano-dispersion technology, few companies in the world have this technology. Water-based dye sublimation inks are widely used in personal desktop inkjet printers and commercial large-format photo printers, but they are mainly used for digital dye-sublimation ink transfer printing.
Sublimation ink has four color series of red, yellow, blue, and black. Printing materials include coated paper, coated paper, offset paper, and cardboard. Sublimation inks are widely used in single-sheet feed monochrome printing presses, two-color or multi-color offset presses. In addition, sublimation ink has two major product features: First, it can meet the needs of medium and high-speed printing. Second, under normal conditions, sublimation ink can ensure that there is no conjunctiva in the ink fountain of the printer for 36 hours, which greatly improves the efficiency of printing.
Tips for using sublimation ink: First, print out a sample for plate making and printing, and then put it into use. If there is not much deviation between the printing and the actual, you can confirm the plate making and printing sample manufacturing. However, because the sublimation ink is colored in the gas phase, it cannot be printed at the normal printing ratio.
First of all, under normal circumstances, it can be used directly on the machine;
Secondly, due to factors such as temperature, paper, printing speed, etc., it can be adjusted according to the following rules;
(a)To accelerate drying, mixed desiccant can be added, the amount is 0-2%;
(b)Equipped with sublimation ink dedicated to flush;
(c)Adjust the fluidity of sublimation ink, you can use #6 printing varnish, the dosage is 0-5%;
(d)Reduce the viscosity of the paper, basically, keep the fluidity unchanged, a detackifier can be used, the dosage is 0-5%;
(e)At the same time, reduce the viscosity and viscosity of the sublimation ink, add 52-94, and the dosage is 0-5%.
