Digital transfer paper is produced in various thicknes- ses and widths. Formed in two parts as base paper and coating on the surface. While the base paper carries the ink, chemical coating keeps the ink and allows it to dry on the surface. Good dry and good transfer efficiencies are two opposing parameters. A good transfer paper should provide the ink to dry on surface as soon as possible and also be able to transfer vast majority of the ink to the fabric.
It is very important that these values must be properly run on paper printing machines and must work in the press well. Certainly, it must not have undesirable substances such as dust spots on the paper. Tears, deformations at the edge of the paper can cause great harm to the printing heads. Paper thickness must be determined based on the density of the pattern and amount of ink to be used in the pattern. In a very dense design, using a light-wei- ght paper causes paper not to run smoothly on machi- ne and printing press and also causes printing prob- lems because of the swellings in the paper. However, the moving parts of the printing machine can be dama- ged due to the weakness of the paper.
Ink and paper conformity is also very important. When using different ink and paper, ink pulses of the printing machine must be set again by qualified service personnel according to changed items.
Using transfer paper with high transfer efficiency can reduce ink consumption much higher than estimati- ons and allows you to save your ink costs that cannot be ignored. As a result, you can produce your products at a total cost much lower than you spent for both paper and ink. Thus, you can lower your costs and give less damage to the environment.
