Introduction to InkTec SubliNova Pro dye-sublimation inks
During the last several years I have noticed the InkTec booth at sign trade shows around the world. Plus I am familiar with the relationship between InkTec (as parent company) and their UV-cured printer manufacturing division, JETRIX.
During summer this year it was possible to spend several days visiting the JETRIX headquarters and the InkTec headquarters; both outside Seoul, Korea. As a result of the day after day inspection we will be issuing reports on each aspect.
Our first report is on the CMYK dye-sublimation inks of InkTec. Because we are issuing this as a PDF, there is no need to repeat the information here on the web page. It is best if you click and download the free report (which should be ready within the next week).
Here are a few snapshots of visiting the factory.
The SubliNova Pro dye-sublimation inks of InkTec work direct or via calender
You can print direct-to-fabric (and sublimate in the base unit of the printer), or you can print onto transfer paper and sublimate in a separate calendering machine. This is the new trend in sublimation ink chemistry.
Customer Visit, of a company printing professional decorative clothing
We drove for several hours from Seoul to visit a printshop that had many Roland printers using InkTec dye sublimation ink onto transfer paper. The output quality was gorgeous. We show more of this in the PDF.
