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?

What is special about water-based 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.
What are the requirements for the printing operation of the characteristics of the sublimation ink?
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.
What should we pay attention to when preparing dye sublimation ink?
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%.
