The Use of Cycolor Technology in Textile Printing
  DOI :  10.2352/ISSN.2169-4451.2002.18.1.art00061_1  Published OnlineJanuary 2002

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.
