Roland DGA Introduces New HeatSoft Premium Heat Transfer Material
Roland DGA, Irvine, Calif., has introduced new HeatSoft Premium heat transfer material (ESM-HTMP) to its family of media.
This flexible, 3.5-mil matte polyurethane film with a waterbase coating is smooth, has a soft hand, and yields prints resembling screen-printed graphics. Supplied on a recyclable clear polyester liner, HeatSoft Premium is simple to weed and transfer, allowing for optimum ease of use and productivity. It’s also extremely lightweight, extremely durable, and because it can be applied at temperatures as low as 72°c, HeatSoft Premium is ideal for heat-sensitive garments, according to the company.
“This new addition to our media line is stretchable, has a true matte finish, and allows for beautiful prints that can be transferred to a variety of materials, including cotton, polyester, cotton-poly blend, Spandex, and Lycra,” says Roland DGA Senior Product Manager Lily Hunter. “Weeding is incredibly easy and transferring HeatSoft Premium is a breeze as well—you just lift the graphic off its backing liner with our PTM2 heat transfer mask and apply it to the clothing item or accessory.”
With durability at the forefront, HeatSoft can withstand up to 50 wash cycles. Plus, it’s compatible with Roland DG’s eco-solvent inks and all Roland DG eco-solvent printers and printer/cutters.
