The pattern of DTF PET Film is clear and vivid, which can achieve the effect of photos. Heat transfer printing is actually a very early industry. The traditional thermal transfer printing market is very mature, and inkjet thermal transfer printing has a long history, such as thermal transfer printing, pigment thermal transfer printing, and weak solvent thermal transfer printing. Although there are inkjet solutions, the market is not enthusiastic, and the emergence of DTF PET Film has completely ignited the entire thermal transfer market.

What is DTF PET Film?

DTF printing needs to use DTF Film, usually, also call it PET Film, but not all PET films can be used for DTF printing. Compared with ordinary PET film, DTF film has a special ink-absorbing coating. As a result, films often appear to have a matte frosted finish rather than being transparent. Unprocessed, low-quality films may be cheaper, but they can stain, stick, or damage your clothing.

DTF PET film is used in the direct film printing process. These films, unlike those used for screen printing, have better transfer characteristics.

DTF film is available in sheet and roll form. It is based on the type of peel after transfer. Depending on the temperature, the films can be hot-release or cold-release films.

The Main Types and Differences of Existing Films:

1. One-sided cold-tearable smooth frosted film, it takes a moment to tear off after pressing, and the color is smooth. Currently mainly on sale, recommended.

2. Double-sided hot and cold peeling matte gloss film, tear off in seconds and have a shiny effect after the transfer, recommended. However, a small amount of product is required in the initial stage, and feedback from the market and time is required.

3. The double-sided hot and cold tearing matte film is not torn off in seconds, you need to wait for a while to tear it off, and it will have a matte effect. Ugliest and not recommended.

Note: Glossy transfer film and matte transfer film are not distinguished by whether the surface of the film is bright or matte, but by whether there is a glossy effect after transfer.

Both hot tears and cold tears are double-sided and can be torn or not torn in seconds. Double-sided prevents slipping during printing and also prevents the pattern from sticking when the paper is rolled into a roll.

At present, only the second tear effect is glossy, and the others are matte. However, if the second-tear film is left for a while and then torn off, the gloss effect will be weakened.

Hot and cold tear-off double-sided mask that can be used in seconds, and feels stickier and softer.

The future trend is that double-sided hot tearing and cold tearing can be done in seconds because they can be compatible with cold tearing + hot tearing + quick tearing. At the same time, due to the different coating processes and compositions, the cost is also lower.
