The type of dye is decided depending on the material to be dyed.

(3) Environment friendly sublimation ink

Inkjet printing using sublimation transfer inks for polyester is widely used.The reason why everyone choose sublimation ink is that the dying process is relatively easy.

It’s possible to simplify the equipment to dye because sublimation ink dye polyester in dry heat.

Another feature is that no waste liquid is generated in the dyeing process, and it is attracting worldwide attention as an environmentally friendly waterless dyeing method.

(4) Customer friendly KIWA-JET Sublimation ink

“KIWA-JET” Sublimation ink is not only friendly to environment but also customers.

Sublimation ink is composed of disperse dyes, dispersant, humectant, and water.Among these, humectant has a great influence on the jetting stability, and generally the higher the content, the higher the jetting stability.

The humectant does not evaporate at room temperature.
But there were some cases that agents volatilized due to heating and polluted customer’s workplace.

In order to solve this problem and make it possible for customers to use ink at ease, while ensuring output stability is a top priority, we chose humectant and drastically reduced the amount.

As a result “KIWA-JET” has become a product that is friendly to customers to use while jetting stability and suppressing the volatilization of the humectant.

(5)KIWA-JET : Dyeing examples of sublimation ink
“KIWA-JET” Sublimation ink is often used for dying polyester such as sports apparel and banners(soccer uniforms and stars and stripes are just images…).

Not only textiles are dyed.It’s possible to dye films whose material is polyester.
