What Powder Is Used For DTF Printing?
DTF powder has been specifically formulated for use with DTF printing. DTF Powder is applied to DTF prints after printing. This DTF transfer adhesive powder is applied to DTF prints after printing by manually dipping or through a built-in powder shaker on the machine.
Hot stamping powder process can be evenly spread through the powder process on hot stamping film, strong adhesion, washing fastness, good water resistance, fast drying speed.
Feature of DTF Powder
- Fine powder, high color transparency, no impurities.
- High degree of integration with ink, good adhesion.
- Powder with certified quality, environmentally friendly.
- The clothes after transfer have good air permeability, good elasticity and washable.
- After drying, the film has a higher flatness, is easy to transfer, and is resistant to stretching.
- The degree of powder sticking on the film is moderate and does not cause material waste.
Work Process of DTF Powder
- Print the image onto the matte side of film in mirror mode. (CMYK>>White Ink)
- Apply hot melt powder evenly and remove the excess powder
- Hovering to bake the hot melt powder (110°C, 5min)
- Transfer the image by heat press at 140°C for 15sec with medium pressure
- Cold Peel (remove the film gently)
- Heat press again for curing with medium pressure
Textek hot melt powder elastic hot stamping powder technology is special, the white powder form is a kind of low melting temperature, soft and elastic solvent-free macromolecule adhesive, its resistance to wet and dry washing performance is good, powder uniform, wear resistance, low-temperature resistance, better flexibility, and bonding strength. Powdered polyurethane hot melt adhesive is made of polyurethane resin mixed with formula additive and grinded into adhesive powder by cryogenic grinding. It is especially suitable for adhesion of high elastic cloth such as Lycra, cotton cloth, nylon cloth, swimsuit cloth, high elastic cloth, chemical fiber, leather, EVA, ironing drill, flocking, shoe and cap interlining cloth, and many other types. It is lower than the general traditional hot melt adhesive use temperature and good bonding effect, printing ink transparent after the powder machine sprinkles on the surface for bonding, the over-drying passage temperature is 100℃-110℃ drying furnace, pressing operation temperature is 140℃~165℃, time 10-12 seconds, and shelf life is 3 years, 99% purity is used for heat transfer.
