DTF transfer is an innovative technology and can be used for the production of various types of textiles, i.e. on cotton, polyester and mixes. The properties of the glue which is sprinkled on the prints in order to fix them, make them flexible and highly resistant to washing. All these advantages contribute to the growing popularity of DTF transfer.
