Printed Seersucker Manufacturers introduces 10 common printing methods:
1. Transfer printing: First, the pigment is printed on the paper by the printing method to make transfer printing paper, and then the color is transferred to the fabric through high temperature. It is generally used for chemical fiber fabrics. It is characterized by bright colors, fine layers, and realistic patterns. The artistry is strong, but the process is currently only suitable for a few synthetic fibers such as polyester.
2. Discharge printing: Use dyes that are not resistant to discharge agents to dye the ground color. After drying, use a color dye printing paste containing a discharge agent or a color discharge agent that also contains a discharge agent. Destroyed and faded, forming a white pattern on the color ground or a colored pattern formed by dyeing with color dyes. Also known as pull white or color pull.
3. Weight reduction printing: This process utilizes the difference in chemical resistance of different fibers in interwoven or blended fabrics, and applies a burning-pulling agent to partially remove one of the fibers in the fabric through the printing method, and retain other fibers to form a translucent pattern. Also known as burn-out printing or burnt-out printing.
4. Shrinkage printing: Use the printing method to locally apply chemicals that can expand or shrink the fibers on the fabric, and through appropriate treatment, the fibers in the printed part and the fibers in the non-printed part will have a difference in expansion or shrinkage, so as to obtain regular unevenness on the surface. flower-shaped products. Such as pure cotton printed seersucker with caustic soda as a bulking agent. Also called bump printing.
5. Flat screen printing: The printing mold is a polyester or nylon screen fixed on a square frame with a hollow pattern. The color paste can be penetrated at the patterned part of the flower plate, and the mesh is closed with a polymer film layer at the non-patterned part. When printing, the pattern is pressed against the fabric, the color paste is placed on the pattern, and the scraper is used to scrape and press back and forth so that the color paste penetrates the pattern and reaches the surface of the fabric. Flat-screen printing has low production efficiency, but has wide adaptability and flexible application, and is suitable for the production of small batches and multiple varieties.
6. Rotary screen printing: The printing mold is a cylindrical nickel-skin screen with a hollow pattern, which is installed above the circulating rubber guide belt in a certain order, and can rotate synchronously with the guide belt. During printing, the color paste is input into the screen and stored at the bottom of the screen. When the rotary screen rotates with the guide belt, the scraper pressed on the bottom of the screen is relatively scraped with the flower net, and the color paste passes through the pattern on the net and reaches the surface of the fabric for rotary screen printing. It belongs to continuous processing, high production efficiency, and has the advantages of roller and flat-screen printing, but there are certain limitations in pattern fineness and printing color intensity.
7. Pigment printing: Also known as pigment printing, because pigments are non-water-soluble coloring substances and have no affinity for fibers, their coloring must be achieved by the coating of film-forming polymer compounds (adhesives) and the adhesion to fibers. Pigment printing can be used for the processing of any fiber textiles, and it is more advantageous in the printing of blended and interwoven fabrics.
8. Water slurry printing: The so-called water slurry is a kind of strong water-based slurry, which is suitable for printing on light-colored fabrics and belongs to a relatively wide range of printing types. But it also has an advantage, because it will not affect the original texture of the fabric, so it is more suitable for large-area printing patterns.
9. Glue printing: After the appearance of glue and its wide application in a water slurry, because of its very good coverage, any light color can be printed on dark clothes, and it has a certain gloss and three-dimensional effect. It made the ready-to-wear look more upscale, so it quickly became popular, and it was used on almost every printed T. However, because it has a certain hardness, it is not suitable for large-area solid patterns. It is best to print large-area patterns with water slurry, and then embellish some glue, which can not only solve the problem of large-area glue hardness but also highlight the pattern. There is also a way to steal a large area of the field pattern to make a rotten effect, but it is always a bit hard to wear, so it is better to combine water and glue to solve the problem of large-area printing. There are glossy and matte surfaces, soft to the touch, thin and environmentally friendly, and can be stretched.
10. Ink printing: At first glance, ink is not very different from glue, but when the glue is printed on smooth fabrics such as windbreakers, the color fastness is generally poor, and it can be scraped off with a strong fingernail, but the ink can overcome this shortcoming. Therefore, when making a windbreaker, it is generally printed with ink. The characteristics are bright in color and vivid in the image.
