Swarovski Hotfix Selector


The Hotfix Selector table contains information on the application parameters

  • temperature
  • pressure
  • application time
  • application side

for various Swarovski products and material combinations. The figures given are for Hotfix application using a heat press.

Note: The temperature/time combinations in the Hotfix Selector table are only guidelines. Too high temperature or too long application times might decrease the final bonding. Pressure cannot be specified more exactly, as this depends on the setting options of the press closure system (manual, pneumatic, hydraulic or electromagnetic). In all cases, tests should be carried out from the start of production, to ensure the ideal combination of settings for the design. The figures listed are valid until further notice.

SWAROVSKI HOTFIX SELECTOR


As most Swarovski products can be applied from the front or back, the Hotfix Selector table features the application parameters for both sides. Extensive information on optimum application, depending on the production process and the application type (e.g. on trouser pockets), is available.


The temperature settings selected depend on the heat resistance of the carrier material, and should be judged by the customer. The higher the temperature, the less time is required to activate the Hotfix adhesive (see table/chart). The application time depends primarily on the textile used and its thickness.
