Textile Metallic Foils

Foils are bright coloured metallic sheets used to decorate fabric when used in conjunction with a foil adhesive. The Foil Adhesive can be either a water based or plastisol screen printable glue that accepts metallic foils when heat pressed together. Our water based adhesive is called AquaScreen Foil Adhesive AS 1773. The design is screen printed onto the fabric and then the foil adhesive is semi-cured i.e. touch dried. The fabric is then placed in a transfer press and the foil positioned over the printed area and heat pressed together. Before using transfer press check temperature has reached 180º centigrade. The dwell time for the press is 5 to 15 seconds. Allow transfer and fabric to cool before peeling off the unwanted foil, leaving the printed design covered in foil.
