Heat Transfer

What is Heat Transfer?

This process is used to transfer patterns as well as metallic, pearl-like, matte, and other effects from plastic, aluminum, or stainless steel surfaces to the curved faces of cylindrical objects. This allows design to be incorporated into the manufacture of household items, stationery, cosmetics, electronics, and many other products.
In comparison with printing on or painting molded products, heat transfer uses organic solvents, lessening the burden the process puts on the environment.

Technology Overview

The Theory Behind the Heat Transfer Process

〈1〉
A heated silicone roller presses the transfer film to the molded product.
〈2〉
The film's adhesive layer melts under the heat and pressure and bonds to the molded product.
〈3〉
When the film is removed, only the printed layer transfers to the product.
