Introduction to the advantages of water transfer technology in cosmetic tube printing
Water transfer printing technology is a relatively environmentally friendly technology, and it is currently an efficient printing technology. It breaks the limitation of uneven surface that cannot be printed by flat printing. The product after water transfer printing has a high degree of simulation, doubled the added value, and low production cost, which is very popular.
Water transfer printing technology is a printing technology that uses water pressure to hydrolyze transfer paper/plastic film with color patterns. As people’s requirements for product packaging and decoration increase, the use of water transfer printing becomes more and more common. The principle of indirect printing and the perfect printing effect have solved the surface decoration problems of many products.
There are two types of water transfer technology, one is watermark transfer technology, and the other is water overlay transfer technology.
The former mainly completes the transfer of text and picture patterns, while the latter tends to complete the transfer on the entire product surface. Film transfer technology uses a water film that is easily soluble in water to transfer graphics. Because the film has good tension, it is easy to form a graphic layer on the surface of the product. The surface of the product is like spray paint, with a completely different appearance. Covering on workpieces of any shape, it solves the problem of three-dimensional printing of products for manufacturers. Surface coating can also add different patterns on the surface of the product, such as leather, wood, emerald, marble and other patterns. At the same time, it can also avoid vacancies that often appear in general layout printing. In the printing process, since the product surface does not need to be in contact with the printing film, damage to the product surface and its integrity can be avoided.
The special chemically treated water transfer film is printed on the surface of the water after printing the required color lines. Under the action of water pressure, the color lines and patterns are uniformly transferred to the surface of the cosmetic tube. When the coating film is automatically dissolved in water. After washing and drying, apply a transparent protective coating on top. At this time, the product presents a completely different visual effect.
