Dye Sublimation in Vietnam
So, in summary, there are two steps to sublimation printing: step 1 is using digital printer to print your artwork on transfer paper, step 2 is to “heat press transfer” the design from transfer paper to fabric. Most companies doing dye sublimation in Vietnam use this method.
To better understand how sublimation works its necessary to first become familiar with the key terms associated with the process.
Sublimation is the change of a solid particle directly into a gaseous state. The sublimation inks are heated rapidly such that they instantly expand into a gas state and easily penetrate the fibers of the yarn. This is why the dye sublimation in Vietnam has good color fastness properties.
A dye is a substance used to color materials and fibers. To dye is to impregnate color into a material. Often, this color change is permanent. In comparison, pigment inks, such as those used in screen-printing, are applied to the surface of a fabric.
A polymer is a chemical compound made of small and identical molecules (called monomers) linked together. To sublimate print on hard surfaces you need a special polymer coating that “opens” to accept colored dyes when heated to 230 Degrees Celsius and then “closes” to trap the dyes when cooled. Some polymers, such as cellulose, occur naturally, while others, such as nylon, are man-made. To sublimate print on cotton or other natural fibers you need to apply a polymer first.
Substrate is a term used to describe the base material onto which images are printed. Typical substrates include fabrics, plastics, metal, films and foils.
This factory specializes in dye sublimation printing in Vietnam. I visited them today and saw their screen printing operation as well as their foil print capabilities and sublimation samples. They are also doing burnout which looks really great with printing on top.
