What are the advantages of the thermal transfer process?


T Shirt Heat Press Machine For Sale.jpgThe thermal transfer decoration process is a process of transferring a decorative pattern on a thermal transfer onto a surface of a decorative building material by a one-time heating by a thermal transfer film to form a high-quality decorative film. In the thermal transfer process, the protective layer and the pattern layer are separated from the polyester substrate by the combination of heat and pressure, and the hot melt adhesive permanently bonds the entire decorative layer to the substrate.

Thermal transfer is a technique in which a pattern is printed on a heat-resistant adhesive tape, and a pattern of the ink layer is printed on the finished material by heating and pressurizing. Even with a multi-color pattern, since the transfer operation is only a process, the customer can shorten the print pattern operation and reduce material loss due to printing errors. Using thermal transfer film printing, multi-color patterns can be imaged at once, without the need for color registration, and simple devices can print realistic patterns. The thermal transfer equipment is used to decorate aluminum profiles and various metal plates to achieve the effect of wood or marble. The thermal transfer equipment works according to the principle of thermal sublimation. It can quickly transfer the required wood grain or marble grain to the surface of the aluminum powder coating and penetrate into the interior of the coating in 3-5 minutes.

Thermal transfer is a dry production process with a single process and the entire work without the need for adhesives. Thermal transfer is an excellent way to decorate the edges, panels, and even the side trims of parts. After thermal transfer, the parts can be immediately transferred to the next step. Overlaying can be performed on the thermal transfer layer.
