Hotfix – the Swarovski crystals with an adhesive coating
Easy application, brilliant shine: Hotfix crystals by Swarovski
Whether you have only just started as a designer and wish to stick individual rhinestones on textiles as part of a small project, or you are decorating an entire line of clothing, Hotfix is the easiest solution for you. These self-adhesive Swarovski crystals have a flat back, which is coated with a heat-activated adhesive. Using a transfer press, an iron or a special applicator, the crystals can be easily applied to textiles and leather. Swarovski Hotfix therefore is an ideal tool for fashion designers and interior decorators.
How does the Hotfix application work?
You need a good absorbent material for applying Hotfix crystals. A water drop test is a good indicator of absorption. If the drop is absorbed by the fabric quickly, its absorbency is good and the adhesive will work well. If you want to iron on your crystals, you will need an iron without steam holes to ensure even pressure on the material.
Preheat the iron, place the Hotfix stones on the fabric and apply the iron for about a minute. The precise time and temperature needed will depend on the type of Swarovski crystals and the fabric you are using. The Swarovski Application Manual provides more information.
Tip: An iron is ideal for applying several Swarovski crystals. The Hotfix applicator is better for individual rhinestones.
Swarovski Hotfix: Extensive selection of colors, shapes and cuts
With Swarovski's Hotfix Crystals, you can choose from 61 colors, such as Tangerine or Black Diamond, various effects (Crystal LacquerPRO, Crystal Patina or Shimmer shades) as well as different surface finishes.
