Applying the Adhesive to the Custom DTF Transfer Prints

It’s the unique powder adhesive coating that gives DTF prints their signature soft touch.  Instead of thick transfer films, or vinyl’s,  the Direct to Film Process has only two ingredients.  The ink, and a thin coating of powered adhesive. 

The soft hand of DTF is holy grail of custom apparel.  It’s never been possible to get the incredible soft feel of half-tone screen printing in a transfer process.  But with DTF, you get all that and more.

The DTF powder adhesive is moisture-seeking, so it draws itself into the ink of the print and chemically bonds to form a strong permanent adhesive that sticks extremely strong to both cotton and polyester fibers.
