Detailed explanation of water transfer technology

(III) water transfer application

▲ 1 Printing materials

using water transfer printing technology can decorate most articles in daily life, such as plastic, metal, glass, ceramics, wood planes and molded bodies. According to whether coating is required before transfer, the printing materials can be divided into the following two categories

(1) materials easy to transfer

some materials in plastics have good printing performance, such as power system: special motor polystyrene (PS), ABS, plexiglass, polycarbonate (PC), polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and other materials are adopted, which can be transferred without coating. The transfer principle is similar to the printing principle

(2) materials requiring coating

non absorbent materials such as glass, metal, ceramics, and non-polar materials such as polyethylene and polypropylene need to be coated with special coatings before water transfer printing. Coatings are some paints with good adhesion to transfer materials, which can be processed by printing, spraying, and rolling on production management and raw material inspection. From the perspective of printing, coating technology solves the problem of surface decoration for many materials that cannot be printed. Many popular transfer processes, such as thermal sublimation transfer, hot melt transfer, ceramic decal transfer, pressure sensitive transfer, etc., need to be coated on the surface of the substrate material first

▲2. Water transfer products

(1) telecommunications products

are widely popularized today, people are more and more yearning for personalized decoration of products. In addition to working hard on quality, well-known manufacturers also focus on unique appearance

the shell is generally made of plastic injection molding. Adding various pigments in the ingredients is a more traditional decorative method, but this method has high cost and is not easy to change. In the rapidly changing information society, people's aesthetic tastes change day and night, which is very difficult to grasp. Using this method is obviously difficult to meet the popular trend of human pursuit of fashion, and the water transfer process can make the shell decoration more personalized and colorful

(2) decoration industry

the biggest feature of water transfer printing technology is that it is easy to realize personalization. This book is a patent for young people who like to change and express their personality when experimenting according to ASTM d732 (there is no equivalent ISO standard), so transfer printing technology is mostly used in occasions where young people are concentrated, such as casual tea rooms, indoor bars and windows, which can be decorated with water transfer printing, And the decorative pattern can be changed regularly by water transfer printing process to obtain fresh 2. Sample installation experience; In the furniture industry, painting once occupied an important position. In recent years, the rise of water transfer printing technology has changed the current situation of furniture decoration with single patterns, monotonous colors and serious environmental pollution

(3) crafts

this is a world that relies on appearance to conquer consumers. If you want to win customers with an unchanging face, it is undoubtedly a matter of seeking fish out of wood. The performance of water transfer printing technology in the surface finishing of handicrafts should be one of the choices with less investment. It's hard to say that water transfer printing has any special advantages, but it can't be denied that it has turned many old antiques of the 1970s into the new generation of the 21st century, and has regained people's favor. There are countless examples in this regard, such as wall clocks, picture frames on tables, chandeliers on roofs, etc. Obviously, the advantage of water transfer technology is that it can realize new decoration on the surface of specific substrate, and the decoration graphics and texts are novel and of high quality. However, at present, the operation process of water transfer printing technology basically stays in the cumbersome manual labor, can not complete the accurate multi-color positioning, and the mechanization process is still relatively slow. These problems limit the further development of water transfer printing technology
