the dye sublimation process
Dye sublimation is the transition of a substance (dye) from the solid phase directly to the vapor phase. During the dye sublimation process an image is “tattooed” into the powder coat base. This compares to other processes which decorate only the surface of the base material. As a result, dye sublimation is a more durable process than other finishes.
There are many nuances to the process of dye sublimation, so it’s important to partner with a company that is experienced with the process. With our 14 years of experience in the process, we’re confident you’ll be pleased with our results.
With dye sublimation, the design transfers right into the coating, or the part itself. You can even sublimate directly into some plastics!
Dye sublimation actually costs the same, if not less, than painting
Dye sublimation's durability also means you won't be re-painting at a later time, saving you money down the road.
What can I
Dye sublimation offers limitless design capabilities, even allowing for 3-dimensional designs. Because the process is digital, you can dye sublimate any image or design you desire!
The Dye-Sublimation Process
Parts are thoroughly cleaned, and a base powder coat is applied to the substrate.
The product is wrapped in sublimation material.
Heat & Pressure is applied for a specific amount of time. The product is removed from the oven and the sublimation material is discarded.
Parts are inspected, packaged and shipped.
