Remove stabilizer after embroidery process from waterproof or water-resistant fabric.
Cut a piece of THERMOSEAL 2-3 cm larger than the embroidery design.
Place THERMOSEAL onto back-side of embroidered fabric, adhesive side facing garment (the adhesive coating faces out on roll, slightly glossy look).
Seal with heat press: Temperature 266° - 300°F (130°C – 150°C), Pressure medium pressure, Time 10 – 15 sec.
Ironing-on with a household iron: High heat setting, for about 10-15 sec, press firmly.
For maximum adhesion, allow THERMOSEAL to set for 48 hours after pressing, before administering any washing tests.
Testing is necessary to ensure the adhesiveness of the film. Just press a small piece of Thermoseal to the back of the fabric before embroidering. If the film sticks to the fabric, start with the described process.
