Fabric manufacturer Senfa has launched its new Sublimis range of fabrics for transfer and direct sublimation printing, which it said eliminates the issue of ink migration.  The fabric is available commerically from Fespa onwards, although pricing has yet to be revealed. It will initially be launched in two different 3.1m-wide versions, one for direct-disperse printing, and one for dye-sub transfer printing. The product line will then be expanded to widths of up to 5m. Senfa business unit director Blaise Humphries said that it had taken Senfa a number of years to come up with a solution to the issue of ink migration, a problem that can create dirty marks, bleeding or phantom images that show up on backlit applications. Senfa is in the process of patenting its new tehnology.
