What are the thermal transfer technologies and applications?


Vinyl Heat Press Machine.jpgThermal 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 printing pattern and reduce the loss of materials or finished products 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 technology is widely used in electrical appliances, daily necessities, building materials and so on. Due to its resistance to corrosion, impact, aging, abrasion, fire, and non-discoloration for 15 years in outdoor use, almost all products are produced in this way.
