Description

TECHNICAL FIELD

The present invention relates to a thermal transfer sheet and more particularly, to a transfer sheet comprising a substrate and in the order a peel layer and a transfer layer on the substrate.

BACKGROUND ART

Currently, thermal transfer recording methods are widely used as a convenient printing method. Since thermal transfer methods allow to form various images, they are used in printing materials which may have a relatively few printing pages, for example, in making ID cards such as identification papers and business photography, or printing machines for personal computers, and video printers.

When roughly classifying thermal transfer sheets used in thermal transfer recording methods, they are classified by a so-called fusion transfer type, in which a heat-fusion colored layer fusion-softens and the heat-fusion colored layer is transferred to an object, i.e. a receiving sheet, and a so-called sublimation transfer type, in which dyes in a colorant layer sublimate and transfer to a receiving sheet by sensing heat. When in making IDs such as identification papers, and particularly when in forming uniform images such as texts and figures, heat-fusion type thermal transfer sheets are used. A thermal transfer sheet by stacking in the order a substrate, a release layer comprising an acrylic-styrene-based resin and a heat fusion colored layer is known as an example of such heat-fusion type thermal transfer sheet. However, when an acrylic-styrene-based resin is used as the release layer of the thermal transfer sheet, the release layer softens due to the heat conveyed from a thermal head and the peel force between the release and the transfer layers becomes high, thus problems may occur such as transfer failure, where the transfer layer is not transferred, whitening of an image due to roughening of a peel interface, and abnormal noise at peeling.

Further, when IDs such as identification papers are made by using the above mentioned thermal transfer sheet, a method is known for forming a protective layer on the image by superimposing a protective layer thermal transfer sheet stacked by, in the order, a substrate, a release layer consisting of a polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) and a water-dispersible urethane, and a protective layer, on the image obtained by the thermal transfer of the heat fusion colored layer, and transferring the protective layer by using such as a thermal head or a heating roll for protection of images. Furthermore, a method for forming a lamination material is known by using the heat roll after forming the protective layer on the image for improving image durability. However, a water-based release layer (a release layer comprising a polyvinyl alcohol and a water-dispersible urethane) is unstable to moisture and especially under high moisture environment; problems may occur such as whitening of an image due to roughening of a peel interface, and abnormal noise at peeling.

In order to solve the problems as described above, it is proposed to provide a thermal transfer sheet comprising a release layer containing polyamide-based resins to reduce the heat applied to the thermal head and the effect of moisture environment and improve the peeling (refer to patent document 1).

When the substrate itself is pigment-recipient, the receptive layer is not necessary to be provided for the object.

<Transfer Method>

Transfer of the transfer layer to the object by a thermal transfer method using the transfer sheet according to the present invention may be performed directly onto the object (direct) or by transferring onto a receptive layer provided by an intermediate transfer recording medium (primary transfer) and then transferring the receptive layer of the intermediate transfer recording medium onto the object (retransfer), by using conventionally known thermal transfer printing machines.

[Performance Evaluation of the Transfer Sheet]

Storage stability was evaluated with respect to the transfer sheets produced in the above described Examples and Comparative Examples.

[Evaluation of Storage Stability]

The transfer sheets produced in the above described Examples and Comparative Examples were stored for 96 hours under a 50° C. dry environment. Printed materials were prepared using the transfer sheets before and after storage respectively and a test printing machine (thermal head; manufactured by KYOCERA Corporation, product name: KEE-5712GAN2-STA) and transferring under the following transfer conditions onto polyvinyl chloride made cards. Thin line reproducibility was evaluated by, calculating the area ratio of the white colored and the black colored thin line part of the printed materials prepared by using the transfer sheet after storage, against the area of the white colored and the black colored thin line part of the printed materials prepared by using the transfer sheet before storage.

<Transfer Conditions>

    • Printing conditions: 3.0 msec/line, 18.5V
    • Printing patterns: indicated in FIG. 2 (white and black lines)
    • Object: polyvinyl chloride made card

Evaluation results of the above are indicated in Table 2. The better the reproducibility of the white line, smudges were less in the printed materials and the better the reproducibility of the black line, blurs were less in the printed materials. It was found that by using the transfer sheet according to the present invention, the printed materials produced have excellent reproducibility of the white and the black color lines, in other words, smudges and blurs were less (have excellent storage stability) in the printed materials, even after storing the transfer sheets under high temperature environment.

6.0/100 Score

Market Attractiveness

It shows from an IP point of view how many competitors are active and innovations are made in the different technical fields of the company. On a company level, the market attractiveness is often also an indicator of how diversified a company is. Here we look into the commercial relevance of the market.

49.0/100 Score

Market Coverage

It shows the sizes of the market that is covered with the IP and in how many countries the IP guarantees protection. It reflects a market size that is potentially addressable with the invented technology/formulation with a legal protection which also includes a freedom to operate. Here we look into the size of the impacted market.

73.8/100 Score

Technology Quality

It shows the degree of innovation that can be derived from a company’s IP. Here we look into ease of detection, ability to design around and significance of the patented feature to the product/service.

88.0/100 Score

Assignee Score

It takes the R&D behavior of the company itself into account that results in IP. During the invention phase, larger companies are considered to assign a higher R&D budget on a certain technology field, these companies have a better influence on their market, on what is marketable and what might lead to a standard.

22.97/100 Score

Legal Score

It shows the legal strength of IP in terms of its degree of protecting effect. Here we look into claim scope, claim breadth, claim quality, stability and priority.
