Nine major processes of water transfer printing process

Water transfer technology is a kind of printing in which transfer paper/plastic film with colorful images is hydrolyzed by water pressure. There are two types of water transfer skills, one is water mark transfer skills, and the other is water drape transfer skills. The principles are roughly the same;


After printing the colorful patterns on a specially chemically treated coating film or water transfer paper, send it flat on the surface of the water, and use the effect of water pressure to transfer the colorful pattern image evenly on the surface of the product. Water transfer paper is actively dissolved in water.


After cleaning and drying, a layer of transparent protective paint is sprayed, and then a three-dimensional simulation image and text is formed on the surface of the product, so that the product presents a world-wide three-dimensional visual effect.


Water transfer printing process:

1: Film printing: various images are printed on the polymer film;

2: Spray primer: Many raw materials need to be coated with a layer of adhesive, such as metal, ceramics, etc. To transfer different images, it is necessary to use different background colors, such as brown, coffee, and ocher for wood grain. Etc., use white for the stone background;

3: Film extension: let the film lay flat on the water surface, and wait for the film to expand and level;

4: Activation: Use a special solvent (activator) to activate the image of the transfer film into an ink condition;

5: Transfer: Use water pressure to print the activated image on the substrate;

6: Washing: Wash the remaining impurities of the printed workpiece with water;

7: Drying: Dry the printed workpiece, the temperature depends on the quality and melting point of the data;

8: Spray paint: spray transparent protective paint to protect the surface of the printed object;

9: Drying: Dry the surface of the finished paint.
