Red Silicone PU heat transfer vinyl is a type of heat transfer vinyl that is used to transfer designs, logos, and other graphics onto fabrics using heat and pressure. It is made from a silicone polyurethane material that is highly durable, flexible, and resistant to abrasion, chemicals, and high temperatures.
The vinyl is designed to be used with a vinyl cutter or plotter to create custom designs, which can then be transferred onto a range of materials including cotton, polyester, nylon, and more. The vinyl comes in a roll with a protective backing that can be peeled away to reveal the adhesive side of the vinyl.
To use the vinyl, the design is cut using the vinyl cutter and weeded to remove any unwanted material. The vinyl is then placed onto the garment or fabric and pressed using a heat press or iron. The heat and pressure activate the adhesive, causing the vinyl to bond with the fabric.
Red Silicone PU heat transfer vinyl is popular among garment decorators, designers, and manufacturers who want to create high-quality, long-lasting designs that can withstand washing, drying, and other wear and tear. It is commonly used in industries such as sports apparel, fashion, and promotional products.

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. Place the vinyl design onto the textile item, cover it with a sheet of parchment paper, and press for the recommended time.
Peel: Once the pressing is complete, peel the transfer paper from the vinyl design while it is still warm.
Finished product: Your custom design should now be successfully transferred onto the textile item.
