The Primary Filter Layer
The first layer of our air pollution mask is designed to filter our larger particles such as dust and PM10. The material is printed in different patterns to make the pollution masks fashion friendly. We use sublimation to print any logos or patterns, making them great for marketing and corporate branding.
Dye-sublimation printing uses digital technology that works with polyester and polymer-coated substrates. Our unique sublimation dyes are transferred to special paper via liquid gel ink through piezoelectric print heads. Using heat and pressure the dye is then transferred into the fabric. The end result fuses the dye to the textile on a molecular level, meaning it cannot be removed from washing. When dye is only applied to the surface of the textile or material to be printed, it can be removed from wear or washing, which we avoid with this technique.
