The microporous colour receiver layer absorbs the ink very quickly, which allows to start subsequent production steps immediately. In the dye sublimation process the ink is released exactly in the position it has been printed – for perfect line sharpness and detailed reproduction.
The microporous colour receiver layer is applied through the contactless curtain coating technology: the paper web passes through a free-falling curtain. This ensures perfect coverage and results in a homogenous and sharp print in high definition.
