PUFF EFFECTS

Puff effect prints can be made by using water-based, plastisol, silicone inks or PVC Free plastisol inks. Such effects can be achieved by printing coloured inks with an additive, or by using special bases polymerized at high temperature (150-160°C for 3-2 minutes).

SPECIAL EFFECTS

MYTEX EFFECTS WHAT IS MYTEX A polyester film combined with a thin metallic foil that could be coloured for sublimation. APPLICATION To obtain the effect, a thermo-adhesive (plastisol or water-based ink), is first printed and dried in a warm air oven, then Mytex is applied onto the fabric through a heat transfer process. Transfer can be done by means of a heat press or a calender, usually at 150°C for 12 seconds. After cooling the polyester film is peeled off and the coloured metallic foil remains on the fabric, creating designs in the areas printed with the thermo-adhesive.

SPECIAL EFFECTS

MYTEX TRANSFER EFFECTS Mytex transfer is a polyester film containing a polyamide resin (100%), free from solvents and plasticizers. The designs, including transparent and glitter effects, can be transferred onto fabric or leather (either natural or synthetic) with an excellent resistance to washing and dry cleaning. Mytex transfer can be transferred by means of a press or a calender. Once transferred, the item has to be left apart for about 24 hours. Then the film can be peeled off and the resin that remains on the fabric creates designs in the areas where the adhesive has been applied.


SPECIAL EFFECTS

FLOCK EFFECTS WHAT IS FLOCK PAPER

Coloured polyamid powders applied on a polyester or paper film. APPLICATION

To obtain this effect a water-based or plastisol thermo-adhesive is first printed and dried in a warm air oven. Afterwards, the flock film is applied, by means of a heat press or a calender, onto the fabric. After cooling, the film can be peeled off and the coloured flock which remains on the fabric creates designs in the area printed with the thermo-adhesive.
