Yarns for dye-sublimation printing

filati sublimazione

Fabrics and, obviously, the yarns they are made of, have to be capable of withstanding the combination of the three elements involved in dye-sublimation printing: TEMPERATURE, SPEED and PRESSURE. Together, these enable the transfer machine (a calender or press) or the direct-to-textile printer, to create the ideal printing conditions. In fact, a temperature of at Read more about Yarns for dye-sublimation printing[…]

finissaggio sublimazione

During the FINISHING cycle for fabrics for direct-to-textile or indirect dye-sublimation printing, the main steps to monitor are BOILING OFF in order to clean the fabric and HEAT SETTING used to achieve maximum dimensional stability and avoid shrinkage during printing. It is very important to use chemicals designed for use at high temperatures, as they Read more about Finishing for dye-sublimation printed fabrics[…]

Direct-to-textile dye-sublimation printing

stampa sublimatica diretta

Plotters for direct-to-textile inkjet printing are a technological solution that has only recently been launched on the market. It came initially from the idea of using plotters previously made for printing a design onto paper (which was subsequently transferred onto fabric by means of calanders or flat presses ) using the new inks suitable for Read more about Direct-to-textile dye-sublimation printing[…]

Applications of dye-sublimation printing
