(Summary description)Many in the industry like to employ mixed materials that include nylon, lycra, spandex, and a variety of other materials. In general, if your fabric is man-made, you can apply the rule of thumb from above to determine whether it can be sublimated. However, that rule does not apply to all materials, especially when it comes to these.

Nylon, Lycra, and Other Fabrics to Consider
Many in the industry like to employ mixed materials that include nylon, lycra, spandex, and a variety of other materials. In general, if your fabric is man-made, you can apply the rule of thumb from above to determine whether it can be sublimated. However, that rule does not apply to all materials, especially when it comes to these.
Other than making sure your poly content is high enough, the most important thing to watch out for with these unique blends is not burning the components. Polyester, like nylon, lycra, and spandex, maybe burned just like any other material. Materials with lower burning temperatures than natural fibers are common. The cloth can alter the shape and distort images imprinted onto it as you burn the substance in it. It can even reduce the amount of air that passes through the cloth, making it more uncomfortable to wear.
Before utilizing these materials, check with your supplier or manufacturer, and be sure to test your print settings and double-check your temperature and pressure. Make sure your settings aren't causing your materials to burn! Suppliers will normally offer you an approximate idea of what temperature they think is best for sublimation, but it's a good idea to double-check these temps for your own prints.



Use your common sense
Dye-sublimation is a rewarding industry, but it is also one with a steep learning curve. That doesn't imply it's impossible to grasp! Many of these success criteria are basic sense and shouldn't be too difficult to follow!
Just keep in mind that if it's man-made, you can certainly sublimate your drawings onto anything! Make sure your combinations aren't too bizarre – 100% polyester has downsides in terms of long-term quality and comfort, but it normally has the best transfers; 100% cotton is very pleasant and will last forever, but it will not hold any transfers. A combination of at least 40% polyester is a decent starting point, as it will give you the best of both worlds in terms of quality and comfort. If you want to use different materials like nylon, lycra, or spandex, make sure you test them first! These materials are prone to burning, so double-check all of your settings before distributing them to your consumers.
