Dollfus & Muller Nomex® felts are used primarily on a heat transfer printing calender. Heat transfer printing is an economical way to print synthetic fabrics. Using high temperatures (up to 230°C / 450°F), the felt helps keep the fabric snuggly pressed to the pre-printed paper. The contact between the fabric and printed paper is important to ensure the correct transfer of dye to the fabric.
Other processes include:
- Placard transfer printing (banners).
For special applications, a silicone coating can be applied.
Dollfus & Muller Nomex® felts can be used on the following machines:
