The apparel industry as a traditional industry is not static. Rather the apparel industry has been seeking self-breakthrough at the forefront of fashion. And these changes in the industry are reflected in the design and the choice of materials. Hot melt adhesive film, a new type of adhesive product, plays a huge role in replacing the garment industry's sewing process. Over the years, the application of hot melt films in the apparel industry has made great progress.
So, what specific applications can hot melt films be used for in the apparel industry? Let's take a look at some of them.
Hot melt adhesive film for non-marking underwear has changed the underwear industry. Traditional lingerie apparel uses a sewing process. The lingerie fabric is stitched together using stitches, which is not very aesthetically pleasing in the summer months when less is worn. Given people's pursuit of fashion and beauty, no trace underwear was born.
No trace underwear is formed using hot melt adhesive film to bond and splice fabrics together. There are no obvious joints in the bonded parts of the fabric, making the underwear fit the body better. It makes the underwear more comfortable to wear. It also greatly increases the beauty of underwear and is highly sought after by women and fashionistas.
The embroidery logo can be a very important accessory in the garment industry, often attached to the garment to play a decorative role in some iconic patterns.
Traditionally, the embroidery logo is sewn on the garment fabric with needle and thread, inefficient. Sometimes, the embroidery logo comes off due to the thread removal, which affects the overall quality of the garment and gives consumers a bad experience. With the adoption of the hot melt film lamination process, the embroidery logo can be laminated more efficiently, and the bonding quality can be guaranteed more intuitively and effectively.
Hot melt adhesive film has a wide range of applications in the production of multifunctional garments.
For example, the production of outdoor clothing often involves the lamination of waterproof fabrics, which is the main channel for water seepage if the sewing process is used, affecting the overall experience of the garment. At this time, it is necessary to use hot melt adhesive film to laminate the waterproof fabric and improve the overall waterproof performance of the garment. In addition, waterproof zippers, pockets, etc., all involve hot melt adhesive film.
Functional clothing refers to some particular industries with certain functions. Such as reflective clothing, it is necessary to attach a cloth bag containing fluorescent substances on the garment if the garment has a reflective function.
The traditional practice is also to use the thread sewing process, which is less efficient and not waterproof. The hot melt adhesive film backing pressing process greatly enhances the production efficiency. Yes, the clothing has a good waterproof function and increases the overall aesthetics of the clothing, making it more practical.
Hot melt film is becoming a niche alternative to lining garments at the collar and cuffs. Hot melt films can be used for various fabrics with different softness requirements. For example, silk fabrics generally require a high softness, while some special occasions require a very stiff effect.
Non-marking boat socks are now a must-have tool for women to release their beautiful feet in summer, and they are very popular among female consumers. The use of hot-melt adhesive film is also essential. In the production of boat socks, since socks are often washed and pulled, TPU hot melt adhesive film with excellent elasticity is often used, which should have excellent resilience and good water resistance so that the socks can be more durable.
