Abstract:

In this paper, printing parameters for the sublimation printing of polyester fabrics like the number of strokes, the sublimation paper weight in grams per square metre, the fusing temperature and time were optimised using the Tauguchi experimental design technique. In the evaluations the signal-to-noise ratio was used. Sixteen experiments were performed with respect to the L 16 Orthogonal array design for the Tauguchi approach. The results show a considerable improvement in the signal-to-noise ratio as compared to the initial conditions. Through this study, not only can optimum printing conditions for sublimation printed polyester fabrics be obtained but also the significant factors that affect water vapour resistance.
