J-Eco Flag Nano NF-60 digital inks are ink-jet printing inks especially designed to be used on digital printers having piezo printing heads. In the sublimation process, the image is printed on coated paper and then transferred on the fabric with a heat press or calendar. The direct printing process, instead, allows for direct printing onto the fabric and then a subsequent process of thermofixation.
For application on different material such as polyammide, the transfer or thermofixing temperature varies according to chemical-physical characteristics of the substrate to be printed. For instance, the plastic sheet used in skis and snowboards manufacturing are transferred at 170-180°C for 90/120 seconds.
Free from Alkylphenolethoxylate (APE) according to the EC Directive 2003/53/CE issued on June 18, 2003. APE is a chemical product included in EDC (Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals) list of substances.
