Sublimation Coating

Subli-Glaze

Subli-Glaze (formally Digi Coat)

Subli-GlazeSubli-Glaze Clear Sublimation Coating - a simple solution for creating unique and innovative substrates. Subli-Glaze is a new improved formula of Digi Coat. Processing is identical.

In order to transfer an image to any product or surface using sublimation ink, that product or surface must be “sublimation receptive”.

This is not a problem when using specialty sublimation substrates. But natural and untreated surfaces like wood, metal, ceramic, leather, stone, glass and other items pose a real challenge to the digital decorator. To accept a sublimation transfer, these products must be treated with a polymer coating that when cured allows the sublimation inks to transfer onto the product.

Subli-Glaze Opaque White Coating (formally Digi Coat)

Subli-Glaze Opaque White Coating - for printing on dark or black substrates

Digital decorators know that sublimation inks do not print white. In order for transferred images to appear vibrant, the substrate must be white or as close to white as possible to add opacity to the transfer so that the image stands out.

Unfortunately, many potential substrates that would make excellent decorated products are black or gray. For example, a piece of slate might make a lovely decorated award or photo gift, but without the proper coatings the transferred image would be very poor and commercially unacceptable.

In order to prepare a dark surface for sublimation imprinting, the item must first receive a white base layer before application of Subli-Glaze Clear sublimation coating. The white layer will give opacity to the image. However, since heat is used in the transfer process, the white base coat needs to be able to withstand 200C heat without peeling or turning yellow.

Subli-Glaze White has been specially fabricated to work with Subli-Glaze Clear. It is simple to apply, may be applied to thousands of substrate materials, and will not peel or discolour under heat.

Subli-Glaze Transparent Coating (formally Digi Coat)

Subli-Glaze Translucent - for printing on clear substrates

Subli-Glaze™ Translucent White Coating is used when working with clear substrates such as glass or acrylics, where the image needs to be transferred to the back of the substrate, allowing light to pass through it. Subli-Glaze™ Translucent White Coating is applied after Subli-Glaze™ Clear Sublimation Coating is applied. The image transfers through the white coating so when viewed from the correct side the image has a white background.

Use it to :

  • Provide a translucent white background which the image is transferred through
  • Allow light to pass through the coating to illuminate the image

Subli-Glaze Adhesion Promoter (formally Digi Coat)

Subli-Glaze Adhesion Promoter - helps you achieve superior adhesion to surfaces

Subli-Glaze pre-treatment is a specially formulated compound that has a high affinity for glass, ceramic and polished metals, which enables it to form robust physical bonds with such surfaces. It is also engineered to react chemically with the special range of Subli-Glaze products, hence providing a strong adhesive link between coating and surface.

The use of Subli-Glaze pre-treatment on glass, ceramic and polished metal surfaces prior to coating, improves the overall durability, and chemical and water resistance of the applied Subli-Glaze coatings. Failure to use the pre-treatment can result in de-lamination of the applied coating when exposed to wet conditions, especially on glass, glazed ceramic and polished metal surfaces.

Subli-Glaze UV Protection Coating (formally Digi Coat)

Subli-Glaze UV Protection Coating - protects your designs from the damaging effects of sunlight

A traditional problem with sublimation printing has been the issue of fading and loss of color vibrancy due to exposure to UV (UltraViolet) light. Sublimation inks are made from dyes instead of pigments, and are prone to fade faster. This has generally limited the use of digitally decorated substrates in commercial design and architectural décor.

Subli-Glaze UV Protect is the first product designed for use in the sublimation transfer market to protect images from ultraviolet light fade. Subli-Glaze UV Protect contains two types of UV inhibitors which both absorb and deflect UV light, giving the maximum possible protection to sublimation inks. In addition, Subli-Glaze UV Protect is also designed to be non-sublimatable, giving permanence to your sublimated image never before possible.

While no product can ever completely eliminate colour fading due to the effects of ultraviolet light, Subli-Glaze UV Protect has had extensive comparison testing against uncoated sublimated tiles and the results provide a substantial improvement.

Subli-Glaze UV Protect is designed to work in conjunction with the Subli-Glaze line of coatings and is a simple to apply 1 part air curing coating.
