Transfer printing; see thermo printing; transfer printing; transfer printing

this form of printing is founded on the principle that it is first effected on the roller or sheets of paper, and only then transferred to thetextile fabric. The transfer of dyes from paper to textile is performed on special transferring calenders by the sublimation of dispersed dyes on contact between paper and textile under force and at a temperature of approx. 200°C. An advantage of t. p. is that - as it is perfomed on paper - polygraphic techniques can be used (eg., three- or four-colour gravure, flexography), allowing the application of more sophisticated technologies (overflow, screen printing, fine drawing). T. p. technology is particularly suitable for use with textiles which are difficult to print by more conventional means of textiles printing (eg., knits from polyester fibre).
