16.5" Permanent Metallic Twill is a heat seal product designed to be laser-cut and heat-pressed onto garments without sewing. Similar to the PSA Permanent version, except it does not have the peel-and-stick component. As such, it is somewhat limited in the number of ways it can be cut and applied. Its thick, 100% PVC-free adhesive (P600 5-Mil Permanent) will not burn from laser-cutting while it simultaneously prevents fraying. Permanent Metallic Twill works best for simple 1-color designs, and is NOT recommended for layering as a background layer. When used for emblems or patches, simply die cut the design, then sew, Merrow- or satin-stitch the edges to finish it off. Sold in 1 yard increments (16.5" x 36"). Bulk discounts auto-apply at 5, 10, 25, and 50+ yards per color.
*** 51" Permanent Metallic Twill is available by request. Please contact our USA-based Customer Service Team for more information. ***

Metallic Twill FAQs.
What Is Permanent Metallic Twill?
Permanent Metallic Twill is a heat seal product with metallized twill yarns designed to be laser-cut and heat-pressed onto garments without sewing. Similar to the PSA Permanent version, except it does not have the peel-and-stick component. Available in 10 colors and sold in rolls by the yard. NOTE: This material has a hardness specification on the upper end, which makes it much easier to achieve a clean cut. Clean cuts are are critical for embroidery machines that demand a precise edge to put a zigzag or satin stitch on the design.
Can This Product Be Layered?
Yes. It can be layered 2 or 3 layers thick with other applique materials for multicolor designs. We recommend a maximum of 3 layers as 4+ can be too thick to heat apply.
Is Permanent Metallic Twill PVC-Free?
Permanent Metallic Twill and our proprietary Hot-Melt Adhesives are 100% free of Polyvinyl Chloride ("PVC"). PVC contains dangerous chemical additives that can be harmful to your child's health.
Can I Cut Permanent Metallic Twill On A Tabletop Plotter?
Metallic Twill fabric cuts clean on most desktop cutters, including Cricut and Silhouette Cameo. All forms of cutting work on Permanent Metallic Twill — laser, plotter, flat-bed plotter, die cutting and shearing. NOTE: May fray a bit when plotter-cut and heat pressed.
What Blade Should I Use To Cut Permanent Metallic Twill?
60° blades work best for cutting Permanent Metallic Twill. On some machines it's called the "thick" blade. Machines vary, but 120 grams of downforce is usually sufficient to get a clean cut.
Will P600 5-Mil Permanent Adhesive Gum Up Sewing Needles?
Permanent Sports Twill is a heat seal product designed to be laser-cut and heat-pressed onto garments. This is sometimes referred to as "No Sew Applique." As such, we do not recommend this product (or the P600 5-Mil Permanent Adhesive) for sewing.
Can I Use Permanent Metallic Twill To Embroider Custom Patches?
Metallic Twill is not typically used for that purpose. Most patches are made from polyester Sports Twill (Tackle Twill).
Do I Have To Sew The Permanent Metallic Twill Design After Cutting It?
No. This product is designed to be heat-pressed onto garments.
How Is Permanent Metallic Twill Different Than Sports Twill (Tackle Twill)?
These products are similar in that both are twill fabrics, but Metallic Twill uses metallized nylon yarns whereas Sports Twill (Tackle Twill) uses polyester filament yarns. There are also slight differences in the yarn size and the weave pattern.
