Softshell fabrics are one of the most exciting innovations taking the textile industry by storm. You can now impress your customer and print on them with Supacolor Softshell Blocker heat transfers. Sports enthusiasts love these garments because they are weather resistant and designed to deal with the elements like a hard shell, but breath like a fleece. The material is very complex and tricky to print on because it is abrasion resistant, has some stretch, features a water repellant coating, and it dye migrates.
Supacolor’s Softshell Blocker formula combines a high opacity white water-based ink along with our unique Softshell bleed resistant blocking technology to give these premium transfers a powerful, dye inhibiting capability that is exceptional. Not sure if you need to use our Softshell Blocker heat transfer? Apply a Supacolor Test Transfers to a fabric in question to test for migrations issues. If the dye is unstable, you will see the results on the strips. Migration is not always immediately visible and can occur days after heat printing. Due to this, we recommend that you allow the transfer to rest for 4-5 days after pressing to confirm result of the test.
Supacolor gives you the ultimate confidence to advance your printing capabilities and increase your sales by giving you easy solutions to printing on complex fabrics.
