Filmoplast® is a self-adhesive, non-woven, tearaway embroidery backing that allows you to save time and money in your commercial and domestic embroidery applications.
Sold by the metre.
Many uses: Filmoplast® works great with items that are too small or too bulky to be hooped. You can also use Filmoplast® in hoops, continuous border frames, or for embroidering towels and hats on standard machines.
Simple to Use: Just peel off the protective paper of Filmoplast® and attach the garment or embroidery blank to the adhesive side of the non-woven backing.
No Additional Supplies Needed: Lay your material to be embroidered out on a span of Filmoplast® and embroider without the use of costly embroidery clamping devices, spray on adhesives, or cumbersome supplies.
Go Hoop-less on Small Items: Your embroidery machine operators will love this for small items such as button parts, pockets ready cut, vignettes, cotton bonds, caps, etc. - they can go hoop-less!
Use with a Variety of Fabrics: With this embroidery method, you eliminate all marks on thin material such as cashmere, needle point, etc., and stretchable fabric can be smoothly placed on the machine with Filmoplast®. Embroiders will not encounter shrinkage of the embroidery stitchout after stitching. This is an important factor for jersey ware, T-shirts, fleece material, sweats, and so much more.
Save Time: When you go hoop-less with your embroidery designs you not only save time and effort by avoiding the hooping process altogether, but there is no need for spray adhesive.
Save Money - Reuse: After finishing the job, remove the Filmoplast® from the embroidered garment, and save money by using the same sheet of Filmoplast® again by closing the window with a scrap piece of Filmoplast®.
Safe for Your Machine and Needles: The adhesive will not stick to the embroidery machine or embroidery needle, and it will not harm your embroidery machine electronics.
Environmentally Friendly: Filmoplast® embroidery backing is an environmentally green product in several ways. The adhesive material is solvent free and environmentally friendly, and as previously stated, Filmoplast® can be re-used by the green-minded embroiderer.
