Transfer printing: An eco-friendly process for high-quality results

The high-quality transfer printing process used by Trans-Textil helps fabrics make a lasting impression and enables printing options ranging from single logos to elaborate, richly-coloured patterns. Intricate fabrics form the basis for the highly fashionable results.

Thermal sublimation technology

During the transfer printing process, molecules of harmless disperse dyes pass directly from a solid state into gaseous components, thus skipping the liquid state. The application of pressure and heat enables them to penetrate deep into the interior of the fibres, where they become fixed. This results in printed images with a particularly high degree of colour brilliance and optimum properties in terms of:

  • colourfastness, including lightfastness and washfastness,
  • abrasion resistance,
  • high-temperature durability and wash resistance, and
  • full retention of protective effect, function, and comfort.

The process is suitable for products made from polyester fibres and also for blends incorporating natural fibres such as cotton, viscose, linen, and wool, enabling the creation of a unique look and feel.

Stylish workwear and occupational safety products

Reliable functionality is the no. 1 priority in workwear. An appealing look, however, is just as important in modern clothing concepts. Transfer printing enables us to produce design-oriented workwear laminates with on-trend accents and contrasts in the outer fabric, lining and trimmings – all without affecting performance. A high-quality transfer print also generates brand recognition and underscores corporate identity.
