Heating Process

In order to transfer the image from the paper to the substrate, it requires a heat press process that is a combination of time, temperature and pressure. The most common dyes used for sublimation activate at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Fedar Sublimation Printer with three Heating Device for Front, Middle and Rear Sections

Ink Transfer and Bonding

When the heat is removed from the transfer paper and substrate, the ink that has permeated the substrate fibers solidifies and is locked permanently into place by the transfer material. Fedar Sublimation Printers have auto taking-up device with tension sensor bar, auto-media sensor and head protection unit.

Other Methods

Dye-sublimation can also be used as an indirect printing process. Standard black and white laser printers are capable of printing on plain paper using a special "transfer toner" containing sublimation dyes which can then be permanently heat transferred to T-shirts, hats, mugs, metals, puzzles and other surfaces. Fedar FD 6196E, with 6 Epson3200 heads, max printing speed 200㎡/h, max printing width 1900mm.
