Introduction of knowledge about the use of hot melt in textiles!
Hot melt is a type of adhesive used a lot in textiles, especially clothing processing. It is widely used for bonding non-woven fabrics, carpet joints, clothing linings, zippers, etc. The hot melt used in the textile industry must have good bonding strength, excellent softness, and water washing/dry cleaning resistance. Let's take a look at it briefly below!
1. Hot melt for fabric pasting
Using bonding instead of sewing can greatly reduce the labor intensity of garment making, and the garments produced are fine, fit, strong and firm. The hot melt used for fabric pasting mainly includes polyamide, polyamide and polyurethane.
2. Hot melt for interlining processing
The bonding interlining is made by hot melt evenly spreading on the surface of the fabric. When in use, the adhesive interlining is cut into the required shape and size, and the hot melt coated side is thermally bonded to the back of other fabric materials (fabrics). It is lining the inner layer of the clothing, as the skeleton of the clothing, which simplifies the processing technology and time of the clothing, and makes the clothing light, beautiful, comfortable, shape-retaining, washable, and durable.
Interlining processing generally requires hot melt to be colorless and odorless, soft in texture, fast bonding, resistant to dry and wet washing, glue not to affect the fabric, and resistant to light. A variety of hot melts can be used for lining processing. Almost all types of hot melts can be used. Most commonly used are ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) hot melt, polyamide hot melt and high-pressure polyethylene (HDPE) hot melt powder. And the hot melt and processing methods used for different purposes are also different.
