Tear-Away Nonwovens Main Applications:

When to use? STIFFY tear-away nonwovens are our standard embroidery nonwovens. A special fibre-structure technology facilitates horizontal, vertical and diagonal tearing of STIFFY nonwovens and guarantees complete removal after embroidery, without leaving residues. The fast tear-away feature saves time and results in higher productivity during embroidery processes. And the smooth, neatly torn edges along finished embroideries increase their wearability!

Processing Recommendations:

  • Hoop the base fabric with the nonwoven in an embroidery hoop.
  • Embroider the design.
  • Remove the hoop and carefully tear away the nonwoven.

Cut-Away Nonwovens Main Applications:

When to use? If the embroidery needs great stability, cut-away nonwovens are ideal, as these are known for having an extremely high resistance to perforation. The excess nonwoven is simply cut away with scissors along the finished embroidery border. The nonwoven backing of the embroidery serves as longterm stabilizer. It’s optimal for knit wear and broken stitch designs!

Processing Recommendations:

  • Hoop the base fabric with the nonwoven in an embroidery hoop.
  • Embroider the design.
  • Remove the hoop and carefully cut away the nonwoven along the finished embroidery edges using small scissors.

Iron-On Nonwovens Main Applications:

When to use? Stretch fabrics tend to get distorted during embroidering – that’s why an iron-on embroidery nonwoven is a must. The ironed-on nonwoven gives knit materials and fabrics with a high percentage of elastane a higher degree of firmness and stability and prevents fabric distortion during stitching.

Processing Recommendations:

  • Iron the nonwoven on the wrong fabric side before embroidering (for time and temperature settings see individual product instructions).
  • After finishing the embroidery, remove the nonwoven through tearing or cutting away.

STIFFY 1950B is a permanently adhesive nonwoven, i.e. it cannot be removed after its application.
