The classifications determined by the printing materials are active printing and pigment printing.
Pigment printing is a non-reactive dye, the price is relatively cheap, but now there are many special printing materials, the price is not cheap. The reactive dye is a reactive dye, which makes the fabric excellent in dustproof performance, high in cleanliness, high in color fastness and high in cost.
The classifications determined by the printing process are as follows: First, the printed fabrics are divided into ink-printed fabrics and transfer-printed fabrics. The main difference between the two fabrics is that the printing process is different. First look at ink-printed fabrics, generally divided into rotary screen printing fabrics and flat screen printing fabrics, mainly to introduce their characteristics: flat screen printing production has low efficiency, but wide adaptability, flexible application, suitable for small batch and multi-variety production. The rotary screen printing is a continuous processing, with high production efficiency, and has the advantages of roller and flat screen printing, but there are certain limitations in the fineness of the pattern and the richness of the printing color. The transfer printing process of the transfer printing fabric is simple, the investment is small, and the production is flexible.
Printed fabrics are generally divided into transfer printing and penetration printing according to different processes. According to the printing process, it is divided into manual printing and machine printing. Hand-printing is generally done by batik, tie-dye, tie-dye, hand-painted, hand-printed plate printing, etc. It is a relatively traditional handicraft. Machine printing and dyeing is carried out by roller printing, flat screen printing, rotary screen printing, transfer printing, inkjet printing, electrostatic printing, hot printing, burnt-out, anti-dyeing, discharge dyeing, flocking printing and other techniques. Different printing processes, they print different patterns.
