Metallic Twill FAQs.
What Is Metallic Twill?
Metallic Twill is a woven fabric that utilizes metallic yarns to create a shiny applique material. We coat the 16.5" PSA Permanent Metallic Twill with our proprietary hot-melt adhesive (PS965 PSA Permanent) so that it can be cut easier, layered, re/positioned and heat-pressed. PSA Permanent Metallic Twill is the #1 choice for laser cutters. It can be used for no-sew applications or it can be embroidered onto garments as an applique. Perfect for kiss-cutting 2-color designs. Repositionable. Works with all laser cutters and applications. 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 Metallic Twill as the topmost layer ONLY if heat pressing, and a maximum of 3 layers as 4 or more layers can be too thick to heat apply.
Is PSA Permanent Metallic Twill PVC-Free?
PSA 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 PSA 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 PSA 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 PSA Permanent Metallic Twill?
60° blades work best for cutting PSA 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.
Does PSA Permanent Metallic Twill Have An Adhesive Backing?
PSA Permanent's thermal adhesive backing (PS965 PSA Permanent) completely seals the twill yarns and provides stability for cutting + sewing on garments. Its polyester-based coating has no PVC and can be cut on plotters, dies, lasers, or even hand-cut. This adhesive system is available separately for coating materials other than Metallic Twill.
How Long Does PSA Permanent Metallic Twill Last On Garments?
We have tested this material up to 50 wash and dry cycles without fraying, cracking or peeling. PSA Permanent Metallic Twill is often sewn down onto garments, so it should last as long as the garment itself.
Will The PS965 PSA Permanent Adhesive Gum Up Sewing Needles?
Our proprietary Hot-Melt Adhesives feature a needle glide additive designed to sew without gumming. Sharp needles work better than ballpoint needles. HINT: Coating the needle with silicone also helps to promote a clean stitch. All manners of stitching work well, including zig zag, satin, bean, and lockstitch.
Can I Use PSA 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 PSA Permanent Metallic Twill Design After Cutting It?
No. PSA Permanent is the ultimate Metallic Twill product, as it can be heat-applied, sewn onto the garment, or a combination of both on multicolor designs.
How Is PSA 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.
