What is Heat Sublimation?
Heat sublimation technology is the process that is used to pass on the image that you have on the computer on to a hard surface. When you wish to print the image on a tile, mug, or any other hard surface, it requires the use of three ingredients: heat, ink, and pressure.
The ink used for printing the photo tile is a special sublimation ink that is turning into gas from the solid state without going through the liquid phase. The transformation is somewhat similar to that of the dry ice. The heat initiates the process, which is controlled with the pressure and time. This ensures that the print is transferred on to a paper with a unique finish. The finish ensures that the sublimation ink is not absorbed into the paper. The paper must be of a superior quality to get excellent pictures. The paper is then placed on the surface on which the design is to be printed: the mug, tile, or cloth, and then pressed. Now you have the photo tile you desire to decorate the wall.

Photo tiles for the exterior
Using of the photo tiles for exteriors is dependent on the climate. Using of the ceramic tiles on the exteriors of homes in rainy and chilly places is not advisable because the water tends to seep to the back of the tile causing it to bulge and fall off the wall. However, you can indeed decorate the exterior that is at least partly protected with natural pictures.
Tile murals are great for exterior use. Wide and tall murals contribute significantly to the overall external look of your home. However, here are the things you should consider while thinking of beautifying the exteriors:
- Choice of tile body should depend on the climatic conditions in the area and the moisture absorption properties of the tile body. Ceramic tiles have a moisture absorption rate of 16%, whereas that of porcelain tiles and glass is 0.5%. Therefore, it is essential to choose the appropriate tile body.
- The tile coating and the type of sublimation dye must also be considered. This is necessary to ensure the UV stability of the dye. The sublimation dye must be of a high energy type so that it does not fade when exposed to the sun rays. The tiles that have a special RN coating seem to encapsulate the dye making it UV resistant.
- Unlike mix tiles used in the interiors that are created by sticking the tiles on the walls, the murals in the exteriors need to be grouted. The grout would ensure that the tile will not get damaged due to the barometric changes of the surface beneath the murals.
- Though the UV stability of the dye used in murals is excellent, it is still essential to protect the murals from direct sunlight to prevent the pictures from fading.
