It is prepared by dyeing into a color paste directly on a white or light-colored fabric to form a pattern, which is simple in process, low in cost and most used. Common printing methods include flat screen printing, rotary screen printing, transfer printing, and the like.
Printed fabric, also known as printed fabric, is a kind of textile with printed patterns, including cotton, polyester, etc., a wide variety, the following is a brief introduction of what is printed fabric. The simple understanding of printed fabrics is that the fabrics are first woven and then printed on the printed pattern. According to the different printing materials and the printing process, the printed fabrics are also classified.
First of all, 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.
There are several methods for textile printing, of which two are commercially important printing methods: screen printing and roller printing. The third method is thermal transfer printing, which is relatively less important. Other printing methods that are rarely used in textile production are: wood formwork printing, wax enamel printing, yarn tie-dye printing and anti-dye printing. Many textile printing plants use screen printing and roller printing to print fabrics. Most heat transfer printing by printing plants is also printed in this way.
