Heat transfer printing paper and ink to basic find
most thermosetting inks are made from high quality cold Strip effect. If you want to make can be either hot stripping and cold Peel transfer prints, will be added to the normal heat set ink a separation of additives, or buy that special ink for hot-split. Many ink company produced available to hot and cold Peel transfer of ordinary, screen inks, are actually the same.
less transparent inks (dark shirt) making transfer doesn't work well, it is because of this higher ink densities, relatively poor stretch. Do not use transparency, the low permeability of ink printed polyester shirts. Because when the store too long after the transfer, Osmotic agents on transfer pattern smoothly from paper released. Most of the inks produced is very low transparency of transfer printing ink use ink to print with high deposition is very important, so printing is best not diluted, but the direct use of inks package. If the ink is too thick (often heat set ink like these), to which you add a little thinner, so that the ink is good. Not completely cured when the transfer, it is very important. In the "transfer" section I will be talking about this.
heat transfer require special paper. most screen printing company is mainly engaged in providing the paper, this paper stability, after drying is also prone to shrinkage. Good stability very high transfer paper, the ink will not penetrate. This paper is called the quality of "cut-off paper." Suppliers are often the following paper wrap tops other proprietary names:
T-75 more than 20 years ago, are widely used. It is very stable and has a good release, and very suitable for cold Peel transfer. Hot peeling can be done and it can do the separation of raw materials, if you are a transfer of dual-use goods, it may be one of the best choices.
T-55 density over such T-75, designed specifically for thermal separation of transfer. Because the separation of higher plasticizer content, if T-75 materials, shelf life will be reduced. While some recommend two transfer can be T-55 as raw material, but you will find that when using cold-split method, ink will not be completely separated from T-55.
and many other specialty paper, but I personally think that both paper has long been a major industry of raw materials.
transfer ink film will be separated, so it is necessary a thicker layer of ink to be printed on. This can be done by using a coarse mesh screen with a thick template installation to complete. 74T to 86T here recommended single fiber silk screen printed for monochrome, 110T to 156 (45-61 cm) is used for more complex prints. If using a finer screen, depositing ink would be insufficient. (This article focuses on the basic design and do not involve four-colour plate transfer. ) Templates should be of sufficient thickness. For a clear edge and thick template the best use capillary Kong Feilin. Film thickness should be at least 40 Micron, Micron 70-80 better. Screen exposure into a mirror (RP-reading), if you want to maintain their accuracy, you need to rebuild it as a reversed phase emulsion film positives.
printing works of art
for thermal separation and transfer decorated works of art should be avoided too much dark color, (also is a black outline for coloring), the silhouette will be separated when the transfer (and other colors), and lost without transparency. The underlying color can show through the black surface. Art patterns try not to schedule too tight, leaving room for paper shrinkage. For printing some of the more detailed thumbnails, as far as possible the entire pattern mounted on a pure white or pure transparent layer.
