THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF SUBLI-COOL 2.0:

Yarn Design:

  • This unique cross section polyester yarn resembles a four-leaf clover.
  • The channels created enhance its ability to absorb and evaporate perspiration and release odours.

 

Yarn Features and Benefits:

  • The channeling of sweat presents rapid moisture absorbency and a prolific drying function making it cool and comfortable to wear.

  • These features then create a functional fabric by maintaining optimal conditions for sports and leisure activities.

 

Extruding the Yarn:

  • The clover shape is created when the yarn is extruded from Polymer chips:

Knitting the Fabric:

  • The fabric is then knitted using a Warp Knitting procedure.  
  • Below is a video showing the difference between a Warp and Weft Knit.

Dyeing the Fabric:

  • The dye recipe is created by colour matching and then sent to the customer for approval.

 

  • Once approved, the fabric is then dyed using a Jet Dyeing process.
  • Jet Dyeing is a machine used for dyeing of fabric in rope form.

  • The fabric will then be stentered to set and finish the production.

Inspecting and Shipping the Order:

  • The fabric is then inspected via the Industry Standard 4 point system.
  • Shipping is then arranged to deliver the order.

 

SUBLIMATION PRINTING:

Creating your Artwork:

  • Artwork is recommended to be created using Adobe Programs.
  • Very specific artwork guidelines need to be followed to ensure the best outcome.

Ripping the Paper:

  • The artwork is then prepared by printing it onto the Sublimation paper.

Transferring the Paper to Fabric:

  • The paper print is then transferred to fabric using a heat process.
  • The recommended temperature and dwell time for sublimation printing is 195-205 degrees.
  • Trial and error is recommended as paper used can cause variation.
  • Due to the heat process, shrinkage can occur and must be allowed for in panel printing.
  • 3% shrinkage warp and weft is considered acceptable and a good result.
