Common dye sublimation transfer problems include:
1. Transfer rate
How much can the pattern be transferred to the material? How different is it from the original pattern? The solution to this problem depends on the quality of the transfer paper and the difference in the heating temperature of the transfer machine.
2. Color fastness
How long can the pattern be retained after transfer? Can it fade easily? This mainly depends on which heat transfer method is used. If it is a sublimation transfer, it is not easy to fade, and if it is a heat set transfer, it is easier to fade.
3. The impact on the transfer material, such as clothing, bags, home textiles, etc.
Will it affect the feel and flatness of the material after transfer? Will air permeability be affected? Dye-sublimation transfer is to infiltrate the dye-sublimation ink into the material through heating and sublimation, without changing the original texture and touch of the material, and the hand and look are better. The thermosetting transfer is the formation of a layer of glue on the surface of the attachment after the transfer of the heat transfer, which has a poor hand feeling and is airtight.
4. Transfer material
Thermal transfer, that is, heat transfer, is mainly applied to cotton fabrics, while sublimation transfer is mainly applied to polyester fabrics and materials with heat resistance exceeding 210 degrees Celsius (adding a layer of sublimation transfer coating on these materials is OK). So common DIY printed mugs, photo frames, plates, etc. are all processed by sublimation transfer.
