Cold peel transfer refers to a heat transfer process where the transfer paper or film is allowed to cool completely before it is peeled away from the substrate. This process often results in a glossy finish on the printed design.
How does cold peel differ from hot peel?
While hot peel requires the transfer paper or film to be removed immediately after pressing while still hot, cold peel necessitates waiting until the material has cooled down before removing the transfer paper. The choice between hot and cold peel often depends on the desired finish and the material being printed on.
Why would I use cold peel over hot peel?
Cold peel transfers tend to offer a smoother and glossier finish compared to hot peel. Some designs or fabrics may also require cold peel for better durability and longevity of the print.
