What is the difference in durability between thickplate thermal transfer and ordinary thermal transfer?

Thick thermal transfer printing usually has significant advantages in durability compared to ordinary thermal transfer printing. The main differences are reflected in the following aspects:

  • Wear resistance: Thick version of thermal transfer uses a thicker ink layer, which means that the patterns and colors are stronger and more resistant to friction and abrasion, so they are less likely to fade or wear out in long-term use.
  • Scratch resistance: Due to the thickness of the ink layer, the surface of thick thermal transfer printing is more wear-resistant and can better resist daily minor scratches and keep the pattern clear.
  • Waterproof performance: Thick ink layer makes thermal transfer products better waterproof to a certain extent, and the pattern is less likely to fall off even in a humid environment.
  • Washing resistance: For items that need to be cleaned frequently (such as clothing), the washing resistance of thick thermal transfer printing is better than that of ordinary thermal transfer printing, and the pattern can still maintain good adhesion after being washed multiple times.
  • Color vividness: Due to the sufficient amount of ink, the colors of thick thermal transfer printing are fuller and the colors remain bright after a long time.
