Heat transfer

Abstract

A sublimation dye stuff heat transfer that can be applied using heat and pressure to a range of substrates normally having no affinity for the dye stuffs and therefore unable to be transfer printed by this method has a coating of hot melt adhesive applied exactly over the sublimable design, the adhesive having an affinity for the dye stuffs, thus providing on application of the transfer, a thin and flexible film on the surface of the substrate which can take up the sublimation dye stuff. A layer of polyester flock staples may be placed between the dye stuff and the hot melt adhesive using a secondary hot melt adhesive of low strength to support over the design area to permit the transfer to be applied to dark substrates or to give a raised effect to the transfer design.
