Transjet Tacky Industrial - Accelerate the tack effect
Transjet Tacky Industrial enables highly elastic fabrics to be printed on industrial high-speed machines that work with a higher glycol content, such as printheads from Kyocera. The paper is first printed with the desired image or pattern which is then transferred to the elastic polyester fabric by means of heat and pressure.
Long-awaited solution for the textile industry
The new dye sublimation paper offers many benefits for the textile industry, which frequently has to adapt to changing trends. As it is suitable for use on high-speed digital printers, significantly more designs can be printed in the same time than was previously possible on plotters. Thanks to a special heat-reactive coating, the paper adheres to highly stretchable content, while the reversible tack prevents ghosting and textile shrinkage. Transjet Tacky Industrial has a high ink load capacity so the print can be better accentuated due to strong colour saturation. The design remains clearly visible when the fabric is stretched to its maximum, which is often the case with sportswear in particular.
Sappi has also thought of the environment with Transjet Tacky Industrial. The paper consists of 100 per cent recyclable cellulose, and all versions are FSC certified. Transjet Tacky Industrial is available in 100g/m² in plotter and jumbo rolls up to a width of 3.2 metres. The product will soon also be available in a 70 g/m² grammage.
