White background for sublimated grafics

Post by Lerio » Fri Mar 09, 2018 1:26 am

I would like to using sublimation for my grafics but before start building all the stuff needed I want to find the best way to create a white background. In my firsts attempts I laminate the topsheet with 2 layers of 40g/m^2 of FG using a resin mixed with a white pigment at 5% (max allowed), on top I put peelply so I have a rough surface for a better bounding during ski lamination later.

The results are still too translucent for what I need, I am open to suggestions.

Ok, so epoxy ink is the way to go. What about the techniqe, what is the best way to put it on the topsheet?
