Dye Sublimated print on Acoustic Panels
Using a Dye-Sublimation process infuses acoustic panels with the image’s colour and vibrancy. This is unlike a traditional printer where ink is laid onto the surface, dye sublimation vapors permeate the surface of the panel. The results are crisp and colourful!
Dye-sublimation printing is a method for transferring a printed image onto a substrate, in this case, the woven polyester acoustic panel. The conversion is initiated by heat and controlled with pressure and time. The high temperature from a heat transfer press opens the pores of the polymer and allows the gas to enter. When the temperature drops, the pores close and the gas reverts to a solid-state. The print then becomes part of the polymer.
