A&E AUGUST 2017 • 35 Opaque printable heat transfer material STAHLS' CAD-COLOR SuperTEK Opaque is a printable heat transfer material that is ideal for sportswear and performance apparel. This lightweight, stretchable film offers garment decora- tors unlimited potential for creating full-color digital images for light- and dark-color garments. The key technology is the patented STiX 2 adhesive. Short for "sticks to anything," it adheres to a wide range of materials at a low temperature range of 250-300 degrees for superior application to heat sensitive fabrics. Additional benefits of the adhesive include improved cutting and weeding. SuperTEK Opaque has a quick dry time of 30 minutes or less depending on the detail of the design. SuperTEK Opaque is available by the roll for use with print/cut systems. Transfer printer The Mimaki TS30-1300 dye sublimation printer is ideal for light production environments. This 54-inch wide, roll-based model is a dedicated dye sublimation transfer paper printer ideal for first- time users or design shops producing short-run pieces, samples and custom work for transfer to textiles or hard surfaces. Fluorescent yellow and fluorescent pink dye sublimation inks are now available for this model. Fluorescent inks produce bright colors beyond the range reproducible by process color printing. Sublimation inkjet systems, such as the TS30-1300 printer, are increasingly being employed in apparel lines. Eye-catching neon colors and nuanced color printing are becoming more in-demand for the sports and fashion apparel markets. The new ink colors developed by Mimaki Engineering add value to these finished products. 888-530-4021 Sublimatable slide sandals Your customers with customizable Slide Sandals from JDS Industries.
