What is the characteristics of TPU heat transfer lettering film?
TPU heat transfer lettering film is soft to the touch, stretchable and high covering, easy cutting, easy weeding, and no deformation after hot pressing.
TPU is made of PU polyurethane resin, which is not only resistant to high temperature and abrasion, but also has super tensile strength.
Its characteristics can be roughly divided into the following categories:
1.Elastic TPU heat transfer lettering film
For release substrate It has the frosting effect on the vision and soft and elastic effect on the touch, which is suitable for large area pattern transfer.
2. Elastic TPU lettering film for adhesive substrate
The elastic TPU heat transfer film looks similar to the off-form substrate, but the substrate is different, it is suitable for fine design patterns.
3. sublimation heat transfer lettering film
This film adds a layer of disperse dye barrier layer to prevent the disperse dye sublimation from permeating to the surface of lettered film material effectively. It is suitable for polyester or polyester blended fabrics.
4. Ultra-thin and highly elastic heat transfer lettering film
Ultra-thin, also high elasticity, suitable for close-fitting clothing, swimming clothing, sports cycling clothing, seamless underwear and so on.
5. Pearl heat transfer lettering film
The surface has a pearlitic effect, like a bead glitter effect, with a sticky release substrate, suitable for clothing applications.
6. Foaming heat transfer lettering film
After heat transfer, there is a three-dimensional effect, suitable for fashion or children's clothing.
7. Main application industries
Generally speaking, the TPU heat transfer lettering films are mainly used on cases, bags, garments and other textiles. For example: clothing, bags, shoes and other textile materials on the printing; TPU heat transfer film also use on the athlete's clothing, to print the number. Others include logos on clothing, logos on sneakers, patterns or logos on other elastic and blended fabrics, etc.

Heat Transfer Vinyl
Heat Transfer Vinyl is widely used in clothes, leather products. The basic theory is that the vinyl has hot melt agent on surface and users can heat press the vinyl on fabrics or leathers when heat it. HTV vinyl has 3 to five layers, and they are base layer, release layer, printing layer, adhesive layer and hot melt powder.So it looks all the same on appearance, however there are different materials to make different quality vinyl.
