Reactive printing and paint printing are the two most popular printing methods in recent years.The following content will mainly focus on these two printing methods.
First of all, the first is reactive printing,printing dyes are processed by reactive printing and dyeing. The design elements of active printing are more diverse: plant flowers, geometric figures, English letters and different color blocks are organically combined to express different design styles through design techniques. Such fabrics are suitable for a wide range of groups and have been applied for a long time. The reactive printed fabric has bright color, good color fastness, soft hand feeling, can be washed often without fading, and is used like new for a long time.
The use of thermo setting or thermoplastic synthetic resin as binder, mixed with insoluble pigments, composed of paint printing paste, applied to the surface of the fabric by mechanical or manual methods, after drying and baking to form a layer of film, so that the pigment is tightly covered on the fiber, in order to achieve the purpose of printing and coloring. Paint printing paste products are generally composed of pigment paste, binder, photo coagulant and emulsifier, which can be mixed when used.
Paint printing is the cheapest printing method in printing production, because the printing of paint is relatively simple, requires the least process, and usually does not require steam and washing. Coatings come in bright, rich colors and can be used on all textile fibers. They have good light fastness and dry cleaning fastness, even excellent, so they are widely used in decorative fabrics, curtain fabrics and clothing fabrics that need dry cleaning. In addition, the paint hardly produces large color differences on different batches of fabrics, and it also covers the base color well when printing.
With continuous washing or dry cleaning, the paint print will gradually fade and the color will become lighter and lighter.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO
1. The process is different
Paint printing is the use of thermosetting or thermoplastic synthetic resin as a binder, mixed with insoluble pigments, composed of paint printing paste, applied to the surface of the fabric by mechanical or manual methods, after drying and baking to form a layer of film, so that the pigment is tightly covered on the fiber, in order to achieve the purpose of printing coloring.
Reactive printing, in the dyeing and printing process, the active group of the reactive dye forms a combination with the fiber molecules, so that the dye and the fiber form a whole.
2. The characteristics are different
Active printing and dyeing is to add azo and formaldehyde in the printing and dyeing process, does not contain harmful substances to the human body, and does not fade when washing, the color and fabric feel better, and there will be no hard and soft feeling.
Paint printing, printed printed fabric, bright and bright color, good light stability. It can give the fabric a full, dry and soft feel, especially excellent rubbing fastness, the correct use of dry and wet rubbing fastness can reach more than ≥4 (reference only), excellent washing fastness, good air permeability of the fabric.
Active prints are generally used in the products with the most skin contact, baby clothes, household bedspreads, towels, bath towels, and bathrobes will preferably consider active prints.
