The front of Silicone PU heat transfer vinyl is yellow, the back is blue. It can be used to achieve a double color effect in designs. By layering the vinyl in a specific way, it is possible to create designs that appear to be two different colors. This can add depth and dimension to logos and other graphics.
In addition, the vinyl’s silicone polyurethane material and flexibility make it suitable for producing small batch three-dimensional logos. The vinyl can be cut and shaped to create raised or embossed designs that stand out from the surface of the fabric, adding a tactile element to the design.
Overall, the combination of the double color effect and the ability to create three-dimensional logos makes this type of Silicone PU heat transfer vinyl a popular choice for adding visual interest and texture to a wide range of garments and promotional products.
How to use Silicone PU heat transfer vinyl
Design: Create or obtain the desired design for your project. The design must be in vector format, as this will allow for accurate cutting of the vinyl.
Cut: Use a vinyl cutter to cut the design out of the Silicone PU heat transfer vinyl. Be sure to adjust the settings on your cutter to match the thickness of the vinyl you are using.
Weed: Remove any unwanted vinyl from the design using a weeding tool. This process is called “weeding” and is essential for achieving a clean final product.
Prepare textile item: Prepare the textile item by washing and drying it to remove any dirt or debris that may interfere with the vinyl’s adhesion.
Heat press: Use a heat press to transfer the vinyl design onto the textile item. Set the temperature and pressure settings on your heat press to the recommended levels for your vinyl type and the textile item you are using.
