The material and its backing must be able to withstand a temperature of at least 180 degrees centigrade because we are using a printing process known as sublimation printing.
We also need the material as light/ white as possible due to the fact that sublimation printing does not print white.
The material needs ideally to be 100% polyester but we are open to suggestions for other materials such as nylon or polypropylene.
If we can find an appropriate material then we will initially need a small amount of material for samples to show to our clients and secure orders. Subject to orders, we will then order in bulk.
Alternatively if you do not already manufacture an appropriate material, would you be interested in working with us to develop such a product on an exclusive basis?
Here are the specifications:
Temperature: to withstand 180 degrees centigrade due to printing process known as sublimation printing.
Colour: light/ white as possible.
Finish: tufted loop or cut loop. Not needle punch.
Material: 100% polyester or maybe nylon polymide or polyproplyne
Backing: appropriate backing to withstand 180 degrees centigrade
If you have any material that fits this specification then the next step would be for you to kindly send a sample for print testing.
If the sample is successful then I will need a trial production run of 20 - 30 m2 in order to create samples to send to customers to initiate orders.
