What type of heat transfer film should I use for decorating performance fabrics?
Many performance garments utilize new synthetic fibers, which provide the fabric with incredible elasticity. Some of these synthetic fibers are very heat-sensitive. In selecting a heat transfer material for these fabrics, the most important characteristics are elasticity and a low-temperature adhesive. Also, if customers provide their own performance garments, beware that many available at retail are dyed using sublimation. If they have been dye sublimated, any white appliqué will also require a sublimation barrier.
