The printing principle of hot stamping technology
Hot stamping process is a type of heat transfer printing, which shares two types: hot stamping and thermal sublimation. Due to the limited use of thermal sublimation in the clothing customization industry, thermal transfer and thermal sublimation are generally equivalent in the clothing customization process.
The principle of hot stamping technology is to place the pattern in a carrier and transfer it onto the fabric using a hot stamping machine under certain high temperature conditions.
There are generally two types of carriers, one is hot stamping film and the other is film.
Hot stamping film: No plate opening is required, and the quality of the pattern is determined by the material of the hot stamping film. The quality requirements are low. Usually, transfer paper is used for transfer printing, but the color fastness and elastic recovery are poor. High end hot stamping film includes PVC film, TPU film, PU film, etc., with good color fastness and good tensile strength.
Film: The hot stamping made with film as the carrier is also known as offset hot stamping. Offset hot stamping is a screen printing process performed on release film, and the production principle is closer to that of screen printing. The offset hot stamping requires a printing price higher than the hot stamping film, which is suitable for customizing large quantities of group clothing.
What are the characteristics of hot stamping
1. The color range of hot stamping technology is relatively rich, and multiple colors can be printed simultaneously. Therefore, it has good compatibility with various patterns and is suitable for printing patterns with rich colors and distinct levels.
2. With fewer processes, high printing speed, and more environmentally friendly slurry, the emission of pollution is small.
3. The hot stamping pattern appears gelatinous, and the printing area is relatively airtight, making it unsuitable for large-scale printing.
4. High quality hot stamping is washable, sun resistant, and has good color fastness.

Development History of Flat Silicone

Silicone is an amorphous substance and is a highly active adsorption material. Compared to other similar materials, it has many advantages, such as high adsorption performance, stable chemical properties, high temperature resistance, and low cold resistance; Both toughness and elasticity are very good. It will not deform due to external forces. In terms of environmental protection, it will not fail to meet the testing standards due to the environmental indicators generated by printing, as it does not contain harmful substances (see the testing report). Everyone knows that silicone is used in baby bottles and nipples, so the product can explain whether silicone is good or not, because baby products are the highest testing standard.
