Which DTF Hot Melt Powder Should You Buy?

Which DTF Hot Melt Powder Should You Buy?

Diffusion-Through-Filter Powder Types

DTF hot melt powder (similar to flour) with particle sizes between 0 and 70 microns is referred to as "fine."

Features: smooth feel in the touch; poor fastness in high humidity; powder easily sticks to the unprinted portions of the film. Powder coating features: ideal for use on small types.

Particles between 70 and 170 microns in size (such as table salt) are considered medium powder.

All DTF printers used powder with a particle size between 80 and 160 microns.

Granular in appearance; nonetheless, the majority of consumers opt for medium powder instead of fine powder because it's easier to shake. The texture is much smoother than that of coarse powder, too.

Granular Dust

Coarse powder has a particle size between 120 and 240 microns (similar to sugar).

The coarse powder is favored when it is moist in the summer or when clients require a three-dimensional sensation of time, although its consumption is significantly more than that of medium powder.

Even if the black powder is only used on a few dark items to block color, its use will be rather high given the prevalence of white powder. Any color fabric can be worn with white powder, however black powder cannot.

Black powder, which is used to prevent sublimation (and which is often made up of TPU rubber powder and activated carbon), is typically applied to fabrics like polyester, bags, and others.

Sublistar's Invention of Breathable DTF Hot Melt Powder

DTF T-shirts have many benefits, including their adaptability to a broad variety of fabrics, vivid colors, great reversibility, low cost, and low initial investment. It has excellent covering power and can be printed in a broad variety of colors.

The most criticized aspect of DTF printing is that the patterns peel off after multiple washes, limiting the fabric's permeability. Sublistar creates the air-permeable DTF hot melt powder to address this issue.

T-Shirt Care and Maintenance

It's normal for the T-shirt you just made to feel a little stiff right out of the dryer, but rest assured that it will soften up after a few washes. (Typically, you'll want to wash your newly processed T-shirts again after two days.)

Don't wipe the heat transfer pattern's surface with your hands to clean it, since that substance won't attract dirt.

Wash in water that is less than 40 degrees Celsius, be it warm or cold, and never use chlorine-based detergent.

Avoid using a washing machine if at all possible. Before throwing it in the washer, make sure the design is on the back. Avoid tumble drying by taking things out of the washer as soon as they're done.

5. Don't scrape the neckline too hard during washing to keep it from stretching out of shape.

While clothes are drying on a hanger, only the loose end of the hem can be pulled inward. If the neckline loses its flexibility, pressing it straight from the neckline could cause it to unbutton.

To allow the heat transfer T-shirt to dry normally, step seven suggests keeping it out of direct sunlight.

After drying, if necessary, iron the garment at a medium temperature (ironing at a high temperature will break the organizational structure of the elastic fibers, reducing the clothing's elastic function). Don't iron directly on the pattern.
