Sublimation Coating: Enhancing Your Printing Experience

What Exactly is Sublimation Coating?

Sublimation coating is a clear coating that can transform any heat and pressure tolerant material into a sublimatable substrate. It is specifically designed for digital printing, ensuring excellent colorfastness, transfer quality, and long-lasting patterns that do not fade easily. With sublimation coating, you can expand your range of sublimation products to include cotton fabric, wood, carton, and more.

What are the Advantages of Sublimation Coating?

  • Speed: Sublimation coating dries out quickly, allowing for efficient production.
  • Super Adhesion: The coating enhances the adhesion between ink and the print surface, ensuring better ink adherence.
  • Protection: Sublimation coating helps resist abrasions, scratches, rubbing, and ink smudging, ensuring the longevity of your prints.
  • Performance: The coating offers a beautiful glossy sheen and a smooth touch, providing a pleasant tactile experience for your customers.

How to Use Sublimation Coating?

  1. Step 1: Add 1 ml of catalyst (small bottle) per 10 ml of Sub coating (big bottle) in a 1:10 ratio. Stir thoroughly.
  2. Step 2: Clean your hard substrates (ceramic, glass, metal, wood, leather, etc.) and apply the coating with a brush or spray gun. Allow it to dry.
  3. Step 3: Once dry, cure the substrate in an oven at 340F for 22 minutes or in a convection oven at 300F for 22 minutes. For wood, cure in an oven at 340F for 15 minutes or 12 minutes on the press with parchment paper and a silicone pad for protection using light pressure. For metal, cure in an oven at 320F for 10 minutes or on the press for 3 minutes with a silicone pad and parchment paper.
  4. Step 4: Sublimation times may vary depending on the substrate and method used.
