The difference between water transfer and thermal transfer: 1. Water transfer is derived from the printing process. It uses the principle of molecular diffusion to transfer the pattern (transfer film) to the article. The transfer coating absorbs the sublimation ink to achieve transfer. 2. Thermal transfer needs to be realized by heating devices, while water transfer only needs water; at the same time, the pattern that needs to be transferred in thermal transfer is generally left and right mirror images reversed, while water transfer is a front image. Example: Take printing a cup as an example. Both thermal transfer and cold film transfer can be used. The difference is that thermal transfer needs to be completed with a cup baking machine, and the cup must be processed by thermal transfer coating. There are restrictions on the material and color; while the cold film transfer cup has no restrictions on the cup, and no special equipment is required.
Thermal transfer characteristics. Thermal transfer technology is used for TPU, PVC, EVA, TPR garden shoes and flip-flop digital transfer processing. Compared with traditional water transfer printing, it has the following characteristics, mainly as follows: (1) Pattern positioning More accurate; (2) The surrounding transfer patterns are clear, not easy to deform and environmentally friendly. The 3D stereo digital thermal transfer technology can replace the cumbersome process of water transfer printing. EVA thermal transfer can produce irregular products. Such as shoe materials, laptop shells, mobile phone shells, mouse shells, surface-shaped electronic products, plastic shells, telephone shells, MP4, garden shoes and other irregular surface products. The digital transfer ink is thick, no matter light or dark EVA shoes, after transfer, it is brighter and clearer than water transfer. Digital transfer technology supports any design pattern and has small deformation during transfer and accurate positioning!
