Videoflex Heat Transfer Vinyl or HTV is a poly-urethane vinyl product with a heat activated adhesive on the reverse side, which activates between 160 -180°C depending on the brand and type. HTV is an excellent money maker and a recommended add-on for any print business.
HTV is available in standard colours as well as colours and textures that are impossible to print like glitter, reflective, neon, metallic, glow-in-the-dark, puff (raised), flock, etc.
JG Electronics stocks around 75 different types and colours, including our new sublimatable flock and fabric additions.
The vinyl can be cut into words, logo’s or shapes with a vinyl cutter, weeded (the unwanted vinyl is removed), applied to the substrate and heat pressed. The heat and pressure activate the adhesive and the vinyl sticks to your product. It’s even possible to transfer multiple colours, types and styles on-top of each other.
An unknown fact about HTV is that it does not only work on fabrics, but on practically any substrate that can withstand a minimum temperature of 160°C for 10 seconds. We have customers who routinely use it on coated mugs. If pressed onto a Muggit™ coated mug, the transfer vinyl is dishwasher safe.
HTV can be purchased from JGE by the meter or as a full roll.
Vinyl, more commonly referred to as Sticker Vinyl, has a tacky adhesive reverse side which makes it stick to the surface to which it is applied, without the application of heat.
The vinyl can be cut into words, logo’s or shapes with a vinyl cutter, weeded (the unwanted vinyl is removed) and applied to the substrate with transfer tape.
It is used in signage and to decorate a variety of surfaces like walls, windows, cars, wood, metal, plastic, etc.
