News / 2023, 17 November

Which are the different types of iron-on film?

Take a look at the iron-on films for textiles available from HEXIS to customise your clothing. Our flex films are perfect for creating distinctive markings on your clothes and accessories. Our iron-on flex films are resistant to washing at 30, 40, 60 and 80 degrees and provide long-lasting customisation.

To create markings on textiles, nothing compares to the use of iron-on films, in particular Flex (available in two types):

  • CAC Flex (Computer Aided Cutting)

These films are available in rolls and offer easy customisation of clothing and other accessories. Once the design has been cut and printed, the application is carried out using a heat press. Our Flex range is designed for cotton, polyester, as well as acrylic fabrics with our SPEEDCUT and BRICKCUT.

Our selection of printable Flex films comprises the following products:

For technical substrates such as nylon, we offer NYLCUT (cuttable) and NYLPRINT (printable). For sublimated textiles (Softshell, sublimated swimwear), BLOCKCUT (cuttable) and BLOCKPRINT (printable) will be perfect for enhancing your textile customisation projects.
