Reflective heat transfer film production

 Before the thermal transfer film is printed and printed, careful analysis and research are first performed according to the requirements of the customer, and then the printing process step is performed.

Substrate film preparation

There are many kinds of carriers for thermal transfer film, and the most widely used is PET, which has the characteristics of good dimensional stability, uniform tension, good heat resistance, and good release properties. In particular, there is a clear advantage in the reproduction of color-graded manuscripts. Film specifications such as width, thickness, and grade are selected according to the manufacturer's requirements. At the same time to check the flatness of the film, whether the tube material has "robber", "flipped" and other conditions that do not meet the quality requirements.

Release agent preparation

Release agent is a low viscosity transparent resin with release, film formation and adhesion, because the solvent evaporation rate in the release agent is faster, so in the coating process, pay attention to control the viscosity, that is, control The solid content of the release agent, the solid content is generally controlled at about 23%, if the solid content is less than 19%, the heat transfer film after transfer coating agent transfer effect is not satisfactory. At the same time pay attention to the transparency of the release agent, otherwise it will affect the effect of the printing layer.

Ink preparation

Thermal transfer ink belongs to the gravure ink. The drying of the ink mainly depends on the volatilization of the solvent. After the substrate film is determined, the appropriate ink is selected according to the purpose of the printed matter and the nature of the printed material or according to the requirements of the construction sheet. Check the ink fineness, viscosity, hue, tinting strength and other indicators to see if all meet the printing quality of the ink requirements.

Adhesive preparation

The adhesive for thermal transfer is hot-melt adhesive, which is a colorless transparent or light yellow viscous liquid. After coating and drying to form a film, the film quality is transparent, and it has excellent compoundness on the surface of coated release agent and ink. Degree and excellent flexibility, abrasion resistance, resistance to water and acid and alkali and other media ability, good weather resistance.
