Does The P600 5-Mil 49.5″ 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, UNLESS you’re merrowing patches or emblems, we do not recommend this product (or its P600 5-Mil Permanent Adhersive) for sewing.
Can I Sublimate Onto PSA Sports Twill? Which Tackle Twill Product Is Best For Sublimation?
No. We do not recommend sublimating onto Tackle Twill with an adhesive backing as the temperature required for sublimation is higher than the temperature at which the Hot-Melt Adhesive will activate. In our experience, this causes the glue to “come up” through the surface of the print. Therefore, we recommend sublimating onto Uncoated Sports Twill first, then applying PS965 5-Mil PSA Permanent Adhesive afterwards, which allows for heat pressing or sewing the transfer onto the garment(s).
