sublimation offset transfer printing ink
Use scope: Apply to single-colour, two-colour and multi-colur
offset printing machine which supply single paper once. Available paper is chrome paper, coated paper, offset paper, offset paper and cardboard. Transferred materials can be fabric, cotton mug, metal, wood, ceramic and etc. Fabric can be transfer directly, other materials need sublimation coating.
Use principle: It belongs to gas shading. First print image on paper, second put the paper on fabric(The side with image is next to fabric), and then press the paper with transfer machine. Under the temperature about 180°C-220°C, the ink on paper will become gas and go into fabric. So the image will be from paper to fabric.
Use method: In normal condition, directly use the ink on machine. The chemical for normal offset printing also can be available, to adjust the ink attribution.
Product colour: cyan, magenta, yellow, black (namely CMYK basic colour)
Product model: SO-D (quick-drying)
Product feature:quick drying
good ink-water balance
Attention matters: Since sublimation ink belongs to gas shading, then the colour showing on paper and the colour showing on fabric are different. So when we make PS-plate, the CMYK ratio is different from normal offset plate making.
a. If we want to get 50% C on fabric, the colour on paper should be 30%C;
b. If we make red PS-plate, the ratio is 100%M and 35%~40%Y;
c. If we make blue PS-plate, the ratio is 100%C and 20%M;
d. If we make green PS-plate, the ratio is 80%C and 90%Y;
e. If we want to get yellow like Asian skin, the ratio is 10%~11%M, 7%~8%Y and a little cyan.Cyan can be adjusted acooding to the requirement.
