We continue with the theme of the week, referring to other products for sublimation, we present you the subliflex 202 paper , which works like a transfer but more durable. Since the surface is made of a more resistant material than the common transfer, it also allows you a large number of surfaces to work on.

How does this material work?

It consists of a thermo-adhesive sheet , which has two sides; a protective one and another where the thermo-adhesive fabric is located. The process consists of printing mirror mode on the thermo-adhesive side, then cutting the excess material with a plotter and proceeding to iron it with the printed side facing down, this makes the image adhere to the clothing, then the protective paper is removed and ironed on again, this allows the heat-activated design inks to pass through to the top side. It must be used with sublimation ink due to the mentioned process.

On which surfaces is the material recommended?

This material is preferable to use on cotton , either dark fabric or light fabric , it allows you to place any printed design and feels pleasant to the touch, although it gives a slightly plastic finish.

Here we mention the steps in detail to carry out the process:

1. Print the image in mirror mode on your sublimation printer.

2. Cut off the unwanted excess, with scissors or a plotter.

3. Place the image on the t-shirt, with the print facing the t-shirt. Before this step we always recommend pre-ironing for 10 seconds to remove moisture. Iron at 180°C for 10 seconds. We must place several protective papers on top of the subliflex paper.

4. Then we remove the protective plastic from the paper.

5. Iron the t-shirt again, placing protectors, at 180°C for 30 seconds. This is the process for the ink to pass to the upper face. Depending on the finish, you must use the protector, in case it is matte you use protective or glossy silicone paper.

Here we show you one of the tests carried out in which we could not complete the ink transfer to the upper face, but it allowed us to appreciate the material and how it behaves.

Stay tuned for our publication on instagram where we show you the results obtained with each of the materials.
