Sublimation Test / Scorch Tester : A Simple Definition

In this Article I will be covering a very Important Quality parameter which can be tested on a daily basis on the garment – Colorfastness and shrinkage for sublimation.

The equipment is used for testing the fastness to Dry heat of all kinds of Textiles and in various forms Yarn, Fabric and Garment. The test is intended to assess resistance of color to the action of dry heat. The method to test the color fastness to Dry Heat is applicable to Textiles of all kinds and can be conducted at different temperatures depending upon the stability of the fibres.

A specimen under test in contact with specified undyed fabrics is exposed to dry heat by close contact with medium.  The change in color and staining of undyed fabric is assessed with the help of standard Grey Scales.

The equipment checks the Colorfastness against ironing and sublimation (With heating from two sides of One side)  It has three stations to check Three samples at one time.  All stations have a temperature Range from Ambient to 250°C.  Each station can be set at different temperature so the equipment has individually controlled Top Plate and Bottom Plate Temperature in ALL Three Stations.  The unit has a specially made Top pressing Board which provides the standard pressure to each sample. An integrated Timer is provided in the unit to set the timing for stations.

The SUBLIMATION Tester can test Three Samples at a time with varied Temperature on Top and Bottom Plates of each station.

An important equipment to check the Colorfastness to Hot pressing and Dry heat.
