'Use of the newly synthesized aqueous polyurethane acrylate binders for ink preparation for printing transfer paper and their utilization in transfer printing polyester fabrics'


Investigation of the use of the four synthesized polyurethane acrylate binders in the formulation of printing inks (in addition to the disperse dye) to be used for printing transfer paper (uncoated and coated types). The printed transfer papers were used to transfer print polyester fabrics and binder fixation in one step in the process of heat transfer printing.

The effect of inclusion of these new binders in the print paste on the ease of dyestuff release from the transfer papers, type of paper, type of binder, type of dye and the possibility of reusing the transfer paper more than once to give several prints were studied. The fastness properties of the polyester prints were also studied.
