Heat Transfer Fading

Postby ChesapeakeMC » Fri Apr 12, 2019 3:15 pm

Hi all,

We have recently started producing heat transfer labels and have had some complaints about fading at the customer site. We are testing the integrity of the tape test against the amount of primer we lay down but are at a complete loss as to why the customers in two separate locations are experiencing fading and adherence failure. Any suggestions for stuff we can try? Not using UV inks - regular water based. These are printed on HP digital presses.

I don't have a ready solution, but I'll consider this problem.

In the meantime, if you think we might benefit from images of the problem and are inclined, please feel free to upload so we can see. There's a tab at the bottom of the window for typing in these messages that says "Upload Attachment"
