Technically, they're different but I'd say for your purpose/usage, you can use them as the same, like printing on solvent transfer papers.

Default Re: Solvent dye ink VS solvent Pigment ink

I am not sure what the OP meant by "solvent dye" ink. Solvent is used as a carrier for the colorant, usually a pigment. Thus you would have solvent pigments. To contrast, water can be used as a carrier and you would have waterbase pigment.

Technically a solvent dye then would just be a dye suspended in solvents. The question is what kind of dye? Dye sublimation is a very specific type of dye. There is also dyes for printing onto fabric and a dye mix used for paper printing.

Dye inks disperse into water where pigments are held in suspension, dyes are also much more dense in color versus pigments are transparent.

I hope that helps,
Good luck,

A solvent dye is a dye soluble in organic solvents. It is usually used as a solution in an organic solvent. Solvent dyes are used to color organic solvents, hydrocarbon fuels, waxes, lubricants, plastics, and other hydrocarbon-based non polar materials.i think that was actually definition of solvent dye are you agree with this??

Waterbased pigment sublimation ink is the one used for dtg print onto cotton fabrics right?

Solvent is usually used for printing tarp?
