What is transfer printing fabric?
The printing of pigments or dyes on paper, rubber or other carriers and then transfer printing to the goods to be printed is called transfer printing, but in a narrow sense, transfer printing refers to the transfer printing technology using needle textiles as the carrier. Transfer printing is mainly applied to polyester fiber products. With the improvement of transfer printing, it is also widely used on nylon, acrylonitrile, cotton, linen, and wool.
transfer printing fabrics are divided into the wet method, dry method, steam method, vacuum method, thermal method and other forms. The transfer printing method can accurately reproduce the pattern, is convenient for mechanized production, and the process is simple. In particular, the post-printing process is simpler than the traditional printing and dyeing and the printing feel is the same as the printing and dyeing, so it has the potential to gradually replace the old method of printing. However, most printing and dyeing factories in my country still use traditional printing and dyeing methods, and only a few production units use transfer printing for production.
Features of transfer printing fabric:
(1) The transfer printing fabric pattern has the characteristics of a lifelike pattern, detailed pattern, clear layer and strong three-dimensional effect. Transfer printing can print natural scenery and artistic patterns.
(2) The transfer printing fabric equipment has the characteristics of simple structure, small footprint, low investment and high economic efficiency. Since the equipment is tension-free processing, it is suitable for various thick and thin printing. In addition, transfer printing can be packaged and shipped without post-processing.
(3) There is no environmental pollution problem in transfer printing fabrics. Due to dry processing, no washing, steaming, drying, and other processes are required, so no waste gas and wastewater is discharged.
(4) Transfer printing fabric has the advantages of high production efficiency, labor-saving and easy operation.
