The Difference between DTF and UV DTF Printing

Recently, Transfer2paper launched two new products, UltraUV 6090 DTF UV Printer and UV DTF film. Many customers have come to inquire about this new product. However, many friends have also wondered, what is the difference between the UV DTF printing and the DTF printing? Today, we will answer this question.

A.Different production processes

DTF printing is to first print the designed pattern on the DTF film, then cover the pattern with hot melt powder, and bake it to melt. Finally transfer the pattern to various colors of pure cotton or cotton-polyester blend by thermal transfer Cloth, cotton canvas and other products.

UV means Ultraviolet Rays. The drying principle of UV DTF printing is that the ultraviolet wave emitted by the LED cold light source lamp reacts with the photosensitive curing agent in the UV ink, causing the pigment molecules in the UV ink to solidify on the surface of the material, thereby completing the printing action.

B.Different application industries

DTF printing is currently used in toys, gifts, clothing, advertising and other industries. Its advantage is that it can be printed on curved and irregular surfaces. Many of our friends in the clothing industry are using this process.

UV DTF printing is mainly used in ceramic tile, glass, metal, leather and other industries. The advantage is that it is easy to operate and can be hit and done. It should be noted that it is generally used for pattern transfer on hard surfaces.
