Hexis UK launches solvent-free film for hot transfer applications

HFlex 100p - which is a 90µm opaque solvent-free cast polyurethane film - is suitable for application onto the following garments:

• pre-washed cotton
• polyester and Lycra
• for the printing of designs onto sportswear, t-shirts and hats

Hexis UK said the water-based film is both solvent and odour-free, because it has no volatile organic compounds and backed with a 100µm matt clear PET self-adhesive liner to make positioning easier. HFlex 100p is Oeko-Tex approved - so it suitable for children's and babies' clothes.

Hexis UK said the thin, flexible and stretchable face film offers “excellent” cutting and weeding characteristics – even on lettering as small as 3mm or complex designs – and will not tear during weeding or application.

HFlex 100p is available in a range of colours, including metallics and neons. More colours will be added in the future.

Hexis UK managing director Scott Wilkins said the product also has “a true anti-reflection matt finish”, which is similar to that achieved by traditional screen-printing.

“Application is simple: you simply cut a mirror image of your design and weed after cutting. Then, position your design and use a heat press to transfer the design onto the garment of your choice,” said Wilkins.
