42 INDUSTRY PF CONCEPT USES ”INFUSION” EXCEPTIONAL FINISHING PF Concept is breaking new ground in the field of design options for promotional textiles. With its innovative technology “inFusion”, Europe‘s multi-specialist in terms of promotional products can now print textiles so that the dye is not printed onto the fibre but directly into the fibre. The Dutch promotional product allrounder PF Concept has been using the new textile printing technology “inFusion” since the beginning of 2016. The finishing technology covers the entire CMYK spectrum and presses the dye directly into the textile fibre. The result is an elegant appearance and a pure textile feeling. In- Fusion preserves the natural breathability of clothing and is particularly well suited for lighter fabrics. Behind this technology is a complex technical process: Firstly, the motif is prepared by the graphics department at PF Logo Express in Poland. Then it is printed on a special paper using special printers and special ink. This PSI Journal 5/2016 www.psi-network.de There are no limits to the design options with “inFusion”. Even the trendy vintage look can easily be realised. is carefully positioned on the garment. Finally, a heat press is used. Thanks to the optimal formula of time, temperature and pressure, the dye is drawn from the paper into the fabric and the motif is merged with the clothing. MANY NEW OPPORTUNITIES Peter Stelter, PF Country Manager D-A-CH, confirmed: “This exceptional finishing cannot be felt. The garment remains breathable and comfortable. With inFusion it is even possible to print on seams and zippers. InFusion provides many new opportunities for finishing. This technology offers an infinite number of colours with just one setup,” says Peter Stelter. “The results are absolutely stunning and we can create looks that are comparable to products from the fashion trade.” CREATING A VINTAGE LOOK IS SIMPLE There are no limits to the design options with this technology; even the trendy vintage look can easily be realised. This finishing turns fabrics into fashionable garments and stylish companions that are therefore often worn. As opposed to sublimation, coloured fabrics can also be printed with inFusion. Even colourful and white blended fabrics with a relatively high polyester content, but with the feel of a cotton product, can be printed. PF Concept has designed a collection under its own brand Elevate which is particularly suitable for this printing process. This includes the Sarek T-shirt, the Tipton polo shirt, the Stokes hoodie and the Garner hooded jacket. More information is available at: www.pfconcept.com <
