Uncoated Twill FAQs
Do I Have To Sew The Design After Cutting It?
Yes, the edges must be sewn to prevent fraying. Uncoated Sports Twill does not have an adhesive backing. As such, it cannot be heat-pressed and must be sewn onto the garment instead. Depending on how clean it cuts, it can be overlayed with non-fraying material like HTV Sports Film, HTV Sports Flock or HTV Sports Glitter. NOTE: If you’re looking for No-Sew Tackle Twill, please consider the Permanent Sports Twill or PSA Permanent Sports Twill instead of Uncoated. (View Adhesive Backing Options)
How Long Does Uncoated Twill Last On The Garment?
It has been tested up to 50 wash and dry cycles in a home laundry environment without fraying, cracking or peeling.
What Blade Should I Use To Cut Uncoated Sports Twill?
60° blades work best for cutting Uncoated Tackle Twill. On some machines it’s called the “thick” blade.
Can I Cut Uncoated Sports Twill On A Tabletop Plotter?
Tabletop plotters aren’t 51″ wide, so the material will need to be cut down first. However, once properly sized, this fabric cuts clean on all desktop cutters including Cricut and Silhouette Cameo. ALL forms of cutting work — laser, plotter, flat-bed plotter, die cutting and shearing.
Does Uncoated Sports Twill Feature An Adhesive Backing?
UNCOATED Sports Twill means “No adhesive backing. Just the fabric.” In its uncoated state, it is somewhat flimsy and tends to fray when cut. For this reason, we offer adhesive-backed versions which include stabilizers so that it’s easier to cut and handle. Our adhesive-backed versions are called Polyback, Pressure Sensitive PSA, Permanent and PSA Permanent.
Can I Use Uncoated Sports Twill To Embroider Custom Patches?
Yes. The poly-backed 51″ Uncoated Sports Twill works perfectly for embroidering patches.
Can I Sublimate Onto Uncoated Sports Twill? Which Tackle Twill Product Is Best For Sublimation?
Yes. We recommend sublimating onto Uncoated Tackle Twill as the temperature required for sublimation is higher than the temperature at which Hot-Melt Adhesives 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).
