What Materials Can Be Printed By Sublimation Printing ?

1,What exactly is sublimation printing ?


Sublimation printing is replacing traditional methods in different branches of the graphics industry.Sublimation printing is done using a process to heat dye and transfer it onto a medium such as paper or plastic. The printer rollers push the medium and its colour panels beneath its thermal printing head. The printing head contains heating elements, and lays the dye amounts depending on the amount of heat transmitted. The dye heats to a gas, spreads onto the printing medium and becomes a solid colour.


Advantages sublimation printing has over inkjet printing include immediate print handling, since the prints are produced dry as opposed to damp. An inkjet printer produces layered droplets of ink, which can be seen under magnification. Dye sublimation creates constant tones without spotting, similar to a chemically produced photograph. Sublimation printers also contain fewer moving parts than inkjet printers, decreasing wear-and-tear issues.



2,What materials can be printed by sublimation printing ?

As a new printing technology ,sublimation printing come to more and more people's views .You are right ,more and more materials can be printed by sublimation printing .

However,what exactly materials can be printed by sublimation printing ?

1) Polyester and polyamide fabrics, spandex, lycra, nylon used in sports apparel and outdoor clothing

2)Plastic substrates like skis, snowboards, skateboards and surfboards

3) Mixed synthetic fabrics(used in sports apparel and outdoor clothing) with a minimum polyester content of 60%.
