DTF transfer durability: Long-lasting print results in the textile industry

The technology behind printing is quite fascinating. We’ve previously introduced you to the DTF printer and DTF film in our articles. We’ve also touched upon DTF transfer print as a whole. If you’re interested in learning about each step, take a look at our article series. This technique involves using an inkjet printer to apply specialized ink onto a DTF film. This offers two major benefits: improved print quality and increased durability. In this article, we delve into DTF transfer durability and explain why the prints maintain their aesthetics for longer periods.

DTF Transfer Durability

Equipment plays a crucial role in DTF transfer durability

There are three key factors for achieving successful prints: specialized DTF printers, unique inks, and the DTF film itself. In short, the printer transfers the specialized ink onto the film, and the film then transfers the design onto the desired fabric.

This is where we come in as the DTF Team. The quality of both the film and the ink plays a significant role in the outcome. By utilizing premium-quality materials, we achieve excellent results – clear, sharp, and long-lasting prints, just what everyone wants for their customers.

Why is DTF transfer more durable?

In summarizing the merits of DTF print, it becomes evident that this technology not only provides ease of use and high-quality output but excels remarkably in DTF transfer durability. Before we delve into the specifics, it’s important to understand that this exceptional durability stems from a combination of key factors:

Direct printing onto film

The design is printed directly onto the film, creating a stronger bond between the ink and the film, which positively affects the fabric transfer.

Use of a white background

The technology allows for printing a white background layer on designs for dark fabrics. This ensures that colors appear vibrant and last longer, as there is no direct print onto the fabric itself.

CMYK color space

The CMYK color model allows for a wide array of colors and nuances, achieving complex designs with high color accuracy and stability. This, in turn, contributes to DTF transfer durability.

What’s the durability expectation for DTF prints?

From our perspective, all factors for a high-quality and durable print are fulfilled. Generally, we’re talking about a minimum of 40 wash cycles before any noticeable changes can occur. Exact durability depends on numerous factors, such as fabric type, washing conditions, and print quality.

Final thoughts on DTF transfer durability

DTF transfer durability is significantly enhanced through the use of high-quality materials. You’ll also get a print that’s clear and sharp. Even intricate and colorful designs look better and will impress you. The synergy of materials, care instructions, and new technology results in significantly higher durability for your print.
