Textile Sublimation Process with Sublimation Calender Heat Transfer Machine

The sublimation process is a transition from solid to gas phase without passing through the intermediate liquid phase. The dye sublimation process involves multiple steps, but they are simple and straight forward as long as you have the following items:
heat transfer machine
Your heat press is just as important as your dye sublimation printer. And just like your printer, heat presses are available in a variety of sizes, styles and price points.
 
This process takes place in a calender or press at 200 degree Celsius. In just a few seconds, the inks (which are in a solid state making up the design on the sublimation paper) transfer to the fabric.

In case the fabric is not thick or impermeable enough,   or when using pieces of textile which do not cover the ink surface of the sublimation paper, the ink inevitably stains the calender’s felt.
 
Thereafter, the felt can stain other textiles, as it is continuously in contact with the cylinder of the sublimation calendar. If this happens, the stains sublimate again and again, causing what it is called “textile ghosts” or defects.
 
 
 
For this reason, it is necessary to add protection paper to the sublimation process in order to protect the calender’s felt and avoid throwing away meters and meters of printed textile with printing defects.
