  Sublimation inks are used by inkjet printers as it prepares to print on the sublimation paper. This causes the powdery dyes to heat up and vaporize into a gaseous form. These gaseous dyes diffuse and are allowed to permeate the printing surface, creating a photo quality print by gentle gradations. Once a color has been used, the roller of the printer is then reset for the next color to be printed. After all the colors have been printed , the substrate then makes a final pass over the printed image to give it a glossy outlook by lamination.

  Dye sublimation inks are used to print reverse images on heat resistant sublimation paper for the final design. When they are about to be transferred to the polyester fabric, a heat press is used that operates at a temperature around 180C to 210C (375F).

    applications of sublimation ink


  Sublimation ink can be used in many files like garments, banners, flags, mugs, plates, key rings and so on. But it also has its limitation.Sublimation inks are genuinely transparent by their natural composition making them use able only for light colored and white backgrounds and objects. Another limitation to sublimation printing is that they dont sit well with fabrics containing pure cotton and surface that are non-porous and dont have a coated layer of polyester.
