The transfer of the image on the medium carrier film to the printing method on the substrate is referred to as the transfer printing. According to the different pressure, the current market transfer methods are divided into: heat transfer, water transfer, gas transfer, screen transfer, low temperature transfer. Today, the difference between the heat transfer and water transfer is shared with you here.
What is heat transfer printing?
Heat transfer printing is a new way of printing patterns on various materials. It is especially suitable for making a small variety of personalized and customized products, and printing designs that contain full color images or photos. Its principle is use the Mecolour heat transfer paper and pigment ink, again with Mecolour heat press machine, high temperature and high pressure to design precise transfer to the surface of a commodity, printed finish goods. It can be in leather, textile fabrics, organic glass, metal, plastic, crystal, wood, copper plate paper, such as arbitrary relatively flat materials.
What is water transfer printing?
Water transfer printing technology is the use of the water pressure will take color pattern of polymer hydrolysis of a printing transfer paper, known as comparative environmental protection technology, probably related to him from the ink in the process of printing. The water transfer pressure and the activator are used to dissolve the dissolving layer on the film.
The difference between heat transfer printing and water transfer printing.
Water transfer printing is a process of self-printing, which uses the principle of molecular diffusion to transfer the pattern (transfer film) to the object, and the heat transfer is the transfer of the heat transfer coating. Heat transfer printing needs to be realized through Mecolour heat press machine, and for water transfer needs water, the difference is huge.
