|20100325816||TIME AND TEMPERATURE ADDITIVE SCHEDULING - A sublimation donor has a first fabric enhancer that sublimates from the donor above a first temperature and follow by a second fabric enhancer that sublimates from the donor above a second temperature. Both the first and second temperatures used are above 260° F. and the second temperature is at least 10° F. higher than the first temperature. Upon sublimation under a single pass processing unit, first and second catalysts triggers the first and second fabric enhancers to sublimate at the first and second temperatures, respectively.||12-30-2010|
|20100136295||Hollow Dot Printing Apparatus And Methods - Systems, processes, and methods are presented for creating dots that implode, rather than explode when transformed into a dye-laden gas. Each of the dots can have a smaller cross-section on a target than on the source, and each can have a concave silhouette. The dots can also have a ring-shaped surface prior to transfer to a source, such as a transfer paper. It is further contemplated that a device including, for example, a high resolution printer or an electrostatic printer, can be used to create the dots or transfer the dots to a fabric. Preferably, the dots can be transferred to a fabric or other material including, for example, clothing fabric, wall paper fabric, carpet, paper, plastic, and powder-coated metal.||06-03-2010|
|20090035461||Pulse Heating Methods and Apparatus for Printing and Dyeing - The present invention provides apparatus, systems and methods in which a pulse heater is used to apply dyes to a receiver in a rotary heating processing equipment. The pulse heater is first applied to a belt and is then removed from the belt, creating a dissipating heat. A sandwiched receiver comprising of two dyed donor papers is then subjected to the dissipating heat off the belt and also subjected to a constant heat generated from a drum to cause a phase change of the dyes within the donor papers to phase change from a solid to a gas, so the receiver can absorb and capture the phase changed dyes for a more saturated and brilliant finish.||02-05-2009|
