Metallic Flex Colour ChartMetallic Flex - Heat transfer film for fabric

 

Description

 

Metallic flex is an environmentally friendly material used for designs that are computer cut and heat transferred to fabric.

 

Metallic flex is made from a metallized polyester film, providing a  high gloss glamorous effects. Unlike other metallic products made from materials like EVA or ethylene, we use a polyester hot-melt which is a more expensive and durable environmentally friendly material. Its key feature is its excellent durability.

 

Metallic flex is washable and suitable for dry cleaning and can be used on cotton, mixtures of polyester/cotton and polyester/acrylic or similar textiles. Not suitable for treated and dyed garments.

 

The film can be used as part of a dye sublimation print design on polyester fabric as it is polyester based.
