How to Choose a Right Ink for Your Inkjet Printer

2018-04-18 18:05:54
Hello my friend, I think you must know that there are three kinds of ink (dye ink, pigment ink and sublimation ink) on the market, but you may don’t know how to choose them. In order to answer this question, you must know what it is and why use it. Here I would like to introduce them to you, then you will know the answer.

DYE ink is a molecular-level fully dissolved ink, it dissolves in water like sugar does in water completely. It’s also known for easily obtaining saturated, brilliant colors due to its small molecular size, 1.5-4 nanometers (1 nanometer=1/1000 of a micrometer, 1 micrometer=1/1000 of a millimeter).  But the dye will re-dissolve and the ink will flow across the paper if drops of water hit the paper. For normal document printing on inkjet paper, photo paper, pvc card etc, we would recommend dye ink as it is much economic compared to pigment ink.
Usage: can be used on the normal document printing which is not used for a long period of time.
Advantages: will not plug the nozzles, eye-catching colorful printing, low cost.
Disadvantages: easily faded in direct sunlight or water immersion.

Pigment inks use tiny particles of colored material to provide ink color, rather than paper-staining dyes. Pigment inks are comprised of tiny, encapsulated particles that sit on top of the paper, instead of being absorbed into a paper is fibers, which is what happens with dyes. Most pigment ink printers also offer more subtle color shading, since they use up to eight different ink colors. Pigment inks are much more stable than dye-based inks, and can last more than 200 years on some paper types, under ideal (museum-quality lighting and framing) conditions.
Usage: outdoor used document, T-shirt printing on dark based / light based cotton materials with transfer papers.
Advantage: water-proof & UV resistant.
Disadvantage: large particles may cause plug of the nozzles, the color is not so vivid as dye ink, higher cost than dye ink.

Sublimation ink is a dye-based ink which has a very high transfer rate.
It is unique in its ability to convert from a solid to a gas without going through a liquid form (Just like dry ice). The transfer rate on the common color jet paper is 80%, and the transfer rate of the special heat transfer paper is more than 90%.
Usage: used for thermal transfer products, such as polyester cloth and other chemical fiber fabrics.
Advantage: bright color, scratch-resistant, washable, waterproof, fastness.
