What is the purpose of thermal transfer?


Cloth Label Printing Machine.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 printing pattern operation and reduce the loss of material (finished product) 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 Micron.
