THE SCIENCE

The printing technique is unique because the inks go from a solid to a gaseous state without turning into a liquid. This ink consists of a solid, heat-intensive dye, which provides the colour, dissolved in liquid. Under heat and pressure, the solid dye particles change into gas, bond with any polymers present, and change back into a solid. The high temperature used opens the pores of the polymer and allows the gas to enter.  When the substrate is removed from the heat source and is allowed to cool, the pores close, and the gas reverts to a solid, becoming a part of the polymer. As such, the dye particles can no longer be removed and will not wash out with even chemical solutions.
