Instructions for thermoadhesive

If you are using an iron, preheat it to a temperature of 200-230°C (set to cotton) for about five minutes or until it reaches the desired temperature. If you are using a heat press, set the temperature to 200-230°C and place your patch on the surface of the material.

Place a sheet of baking paper or thin fabric over the patch. We recommend using a damp fabric when working with wool or other delicate fabrics. Make sure the fabric is damp but not completely wet.

Place the iron on the fabric over the patch and apply constant pressure for about 30 seconds. Allow to cool for five minutes.

Turn the fabric upside down and press the area behind the patch, applying pressure for at least 30 seconds. Let the area cool for another five minutes.

TO SEW

This is the traditional method of applying any patch. It requires the use of a needle and thread to sew the patch directly onto the fabric of the garment or item. It can be a laborious process, but it ensures a strong adhesion and greater durability over time. It is usually recommended when dealing with a small quantity of patches to apply or in cases where you want to obtain extremely long-lasting resistance of the application.

THERMO-ADHESIVE

Some patches may come with a thermal adhesive or iron-on backing. This means that when heated, the adhesive activates and fuses with the fabric, attaching the patch permanently. This method is faster than stitching, but requires the use of a heat press or iron for application. It is a recommended finishing touch when you want to quickly apply a large number of patches, obtaining a quick and long-lasting result.
