Eco-Friendly Dispersed Dye Digital Inks for Sublimation Printing
Eco Master Sublimation inks are made of aqueous nano-dispersed dyes, especially suitable for ink-jet printing on wide format plotters using piezo printing heads. They are used to print ink-jet transfer paper which, through the sublimation heating process, releases the dyes into the polyester fibers thus permanently coloring the synthetic fabric themselves. Or they are used to print polyester directly and heating, which leads to permanent dyeing of fabric.

Ink-jet printing process with Eco Master Sublimation ink
I. Inkjet printing
Pretreated polyester is recommended for the best result.
AIT Sublimation inks are suitable for high speed printing mode
The optimal printing conditions are : 20~22℃/68~72℉ and relative humidity ≥ 60%
The use of Papijet CS as pre-filling and cleaning solution is recommended
Direct printing on polyester
Thermofix 30~60sec at 180~200℃/356~392℉
Transfer printing from paper to polyester
Transfer/Fixation with hot presses or cylinders: 30~60sec at 180~210℃/356~410℉
Eco Master Sublimation inks show consistent printing performance stored at temperature between 4 and 38℃ (ideally 18~25℃) for at least 6 months. Partly used inks should be used up as soon as possible.
Eco Master Sublimation inks should be protected from temperature above 38 and below 4℃ and from exposure to UV light.
