Abstract

This article describes a technique wherein the migration of multi-colored dye-based inks into each other on a single impression fabric is obviated. In the technique described, the nylon impression fabric is first spooled and inserted in its entirety in the plasma vacuum chamber. A vacuum of approximately 0.2 torr is achieved therein followed by the plasma sputtering of a suitable metal, such as aluminum. Templates cover the nylon fabric within the chamber. The fabric is unspooled onto a take-up reel. All of the open areas allow the metal plasma to redeposit and form a set of barrier tracks adhering to the nylon. Subsequently, inking of this fabric will take place.
