The Use of Cycolor Technology in Textile Printing
Abstract:Cycolor Technology combines microencapsulation and photopolymerization into a single layer of photographic coating. This is a dry imaging process; with the imaging chemistry all contained in the coated layer. This paper describes the use of Cycolor technology to digitally print on different substrates especially textiles or fabrics by either of two methods: (1) transferring the image from a ‘donor sheet’ onto textiles and (2) impregnating the textiles with the active material followed by exposing and developing on the fabric itself. The later technique, because of the nature of the developing process cannot be used with coarse textiles or fabrics.

For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
