Sublimation printing is for polyester, “PET film transfer printing solution with powder” gives a solution for cotton and other printing media. Due to the inevitable problems in the process of shaking powder film transfer printing, such as the requirements of fine pattern transfer, hand feeling and air permeability, there may be problems as low yield of finished products and difficult maintenance of equipment and process. In view of the inevitable defects in the film transfer printing and based on 15 years of experience in the development of pigment inks, hongsam digital released revolutionary PET film transfer printing solution without powder for cotton and other printing media. Its revolution lies in that this solution solves the natural defects of “PET film transfer printing solution with powder”, it becomes a very good complementary solution in the field of digital printing, adds a more down-to-earth solution to prosper the digital printing.
The printing process of this solution is shorter, and the whole process has only three steps:
printing-drying-transfer. This is similar to sublimation transfer on polyester, except that the PET film is instead of the sublimation paper, and there is no "powder shaking" process, which reduces the probability of defective products and avoids many problems with the powder shaking solution.
Comparison of the cost: almost same with “PET film transfer printing solution with powder” solution.
Its main characteristics are simple operation, multi-application, no hand feeling, good fastness and high yield.
Some netizens exclaimed: This is simply we can transfer print where we want, mom no longer has to worry about my digital printing!

Based on the existing data and industry knowledge, we compared this solution with sublimation transfer, PET film transfer printing solution with powder, DTG pigment printing, and eco-solvent printing as follows. Only represents a part of the views, may not be comprehensive and scientific, just to set the ball rolling.
First of all, let’s see the difference between “PET film transfer printing solution” with “PET film transfer printing solution without powder”:
|Item||PET film transfer printing solution with powder||DTF® PET film transfer printing solution without powder||DTF® without powder Advantage|
|Solution configuration||2-head DTF printer, powder shaking machine and dryer||3-head DTF printer, dryer||Short process, fully automated, less maintenance and labor cost|
|Color performance||White color cannot perform well sometimes||All colors can perform well||Better|
|Image definition||Due to the reliability of the powder shaking machine and the quality of powder, fine pattern can not be transfer||No powder shaking machine and powder quality influence, suitable for fine pattern performance||Good image details performance, especially the fine pattern performance; excellent image output performance|
|60℃ 60℃ Soaping fastness （with steel ball）||4||4||Good|
|60℃ Washing fastness with nylon brush (50 times)||Good fastness||Good fastness||Same washing fastness with nylon brush|
|Dry rubbing fastness||3-4||＞4||Good dry rubbing fastness|
|Wet rubbing fastness||3||＞4||Better wet rubbing fastness|
|Stretch||Almost not stretchable||Highly stretchable||Wide application for different fabrics|
|Air permeability||No air permeability||Good air permeability, comfortable to wear||Good air permeability, comfortable to wear|
|Hand feeling||Hard hand feeling, foreign body sensation, too thick||No hand feeling, suitable for soft fabric,||Overcome the problem of hard hand feeling|
|Thickness of PET film||Very thick, not suitable for glossy media transfer printing, foreign body sensation||No thickness, closely fit the surface of the media, no hand feeling||Suitable for most glossy media, textile, glass and leather. Convenient post-finishing|
|General cost||Material cost + maintenance cost||Material cost||The general material cost are almost same, reducing maintenance time and labor|
|Manpower requirement||Two people maintain a machine||One people maintains three machines||Convenient, easy operation, automation|
|Print speed||10-30㎡/h||10-30㎡/h||Almost same|

As a revolutionary water-free digital printing solution, compared with other digital printing solutions
Comparison with dye sublimation printing solution
PET film transfer printing solution without powder is a kind of solution that is multi-purpose, environmentally friendly and surprising solution.
Through the above-mentioned comparative analysis, HONGSAM DTF without Powder solution is worth looking forward to. It is hoped that this solution can add luster to the digital printing of various media such as textiles, leather and boards.
