Heat transfer vinyl, also known as HTV for short, is an exciting new specialty plastic polymer which is now being used on a variety of materials and fabrics to make beautiful designs and promotional items. It comes in either a rolled sheet or plastic sheet form with an adhesive backing, allowing it to be folded or cut to size and used for heat application. This revolutionary polymer has the ability to heat up quickly, spreading through the material with the use of infrared light, and then rapidly hardening again once it has reached its final temperature. This ensures items made from this material will have a longer shelf life than those made from traditional materials. Read More – Resource
How Do You Choose the Perfect Heat Transfer Vinyl Cutter?
One popular product made with heat transfer vinyl is heat pressed curtains. These are custom made window treatments which are designed and printed at a vinyl sheet heat press using heat transfer vinyl. They can be easily rolled out and glued down the window of a vehicle, and their adhesive backed surface makes it simple to put on and take off – a simple task as compared to other curtains. They are available in many different colors, sizes, and patterns.
Another popular product made with heat transfer vinyl is liquid metallic sheets. These sheets are similar to heat pressed curtains except they are made using a liquid metallic patterned pattern which can also be applied to a variety of other materials. The sheet base of these products is made from metallic ingredients similar to iron, copper, silver, brass, tin, and zinc. These liquid metallic components are then rolled into thin sheets which can adhere to almost any surface and are designed for specific applications such as clothing, electronics, automotive, cosmetic, and medical applications.
