Sublimated Sports Uniforms Explained

The dye sublimation process uses special heat-sensitive dyes to print graphics, text and virtually any image onto special transfer paper. The paper is then placed on the pre-cut fabric pattern and both are placed into a high-pressure heat press.

Under heat and pressure, the ink or "dye" on the paper has been transferred to the fabric and has actually bonded to the pores of the fibers in the fabric. Run your finger across the surface of a sublimated garment and you will feel nothing but the fabric.

Dye sublimation is always done on a polyester, polymer, or polymer-coated item, in the case of team uniforms 100% polyester garments. At high temperature, the solid dye vaporizes into a gas without ever becoming a liquid. The same high temperature opens the pores of the polyester fabric and allows the dye vapor to enter. When the temperature cools, the pores close and the gas reverts to a solid state trapping the dye into the fiber of the fabric. It has now become a permanent part of the fabric. Darker colour materials cannot be used with sublimation so all clothing starts out as a solid white fabric. Also the dye sublimation cannot be removed as per sew on letters and numbers.
