How to use
The ElvaJet Opal series has been tested on the most frequently used printers and transfer papers, but users should check the inks’ suitability for individual machines and paper types.
If the inks dry in the nozzles, the normal cleaning procedure built into the printer should be applied. We recommend the use of our specific cleaning solution, Sensient Universal Flush WB.
For optimal printing, the relative humidity rate must be kept at 55% or higher and the ambient temperature should be around 20°C (70°F).
ElvaJet Opal inks are designed for transfer to the substrate via any type of sublimation transfer paper or film. Once printed, the transfer paper should be handled with care and the ink transferred to the fabric as soon as possible.
To obtain a good color transfer and fixing, the printed substrate should be transferred at 210°C (410°F) for 30s.
