Is all sublimation ink the same? Is Epson compatible with sublimation ink?
You need special ink for sublimation. Not all sublimation ink is the same, there is a different density for different types of sublimation ink, and in different models, different suppliers’ ink has different color tones and different stability. You can not use any kind of sublimation ink, you have to use match ink. Tell the supplier what printer and head you use, what process of printing you do, what kind of fabric you do, and what application, and then you can get a matching ink. Epson is compatible with sublimation ink. Also Roland and Mimaki.
Hp stitch s500 is sublimation ink printing too, but its head uses heat bubble technology, which different system from Japanese printers and Chinese printers.
What is the difference between sublimation ink and regular ink?
Can you switch from regular ink to sublimation ink?
Sublimation ink is a kind of water-based safe ink that only shows its beautiful color after heat, before heat the color of the ink is dark and old. This kind of ink will have a chemical reaction while heating from paper to fabric, after the chemical reaction, the color gets bright and firmly fixed on the fabric without hand feel. Normal ink doesn’t meet that chemical reaction.
You can switch a printer from regular ink to sublimation ink, as long as totally cleans the regular ink, and the printer and head match sublimation ink needs.
