About Common Problems In DTF Printing


Recommended Posts

DTF printing is the most popular thermal transfer printing process now, many people have switched from screen printing to DTF printing, of course, as a new technology, you may encounter many problems, here are 5 problems (hope it can help everyone 😞

1. Does the DTF transfer film have high requirements on the printing machine?
Yes, you need a converted Epson printer or a professional DTF printer.

2. What is the difference between cold/hot peeling of DTF film?
Cold peeling refers to peeling after the media is completely cooled, it can provide more vivid effect and can make the image adhere better to the surface of the textile.
Hot stripping, as the name suggests, is stripping while the media is still hot. According to our tests, it will make the result more like a matte.

3. How to solve the oil surface problem of some DTF membranes?
The oil surface occurs when the chemicals and water droplets are not completely dehydrated during the heating process. To solve this problem, you need to increase the heating temperature and time according to your own situation.
And, you can store it in a dry and cool place for a few days, usually the oil surface will disappear by itself.

4. Since the pattern is attached to the fabric by hot melt adhesive through DTF, is it easy to fall off??
After high temperature, the hot melt adhesive powder is integrated with the fabric fiber, and the DTF film is easy to tear


5. If you use HTV for heat transfer. What are the advantages of DTF?

The biggest difference between HTV and DTF is hollow and multi-color. HTV mainly has monochrome lettering film and printable lettering film. The disadvantage of monochrome lettering film is that monochrome needs to use positioning film and cutting plotter to hollow out, and the lettering film can be printed, that is, it also needs to use positioning film and cutting plotter to realize hollowing, which is inconvenient to operate and takes longer than DTF printing

Compared with HTV, DTF can print thinner lines, and it will not deform after high temperature heat transfer. The effect after transfer printing is smooth, good elasticity, anti-stretch, and good washing effect.
