Fusible ink jet transfer coatings are used for special applications demanding high image permanence. Small format T-shirt transfers are already widely accepted while new applications in wide format printing are still in an early state. Excellent media and image durability can be achieved by fusing ink jet coatings comprising a high degree of polymeric organic pigments after printing by heat and pressure. Durability requirements for different applications and experimental results on the permanence of ink jet transfer prints will be discussed.
