Which Products are Suitable for Hotfix Application?


What are the Basic Hotfix Principles?

All Swarovski Hotfix crystals have a coating of hot-melt glue on the back, which is activated by heat (applied either directly or indirectly via ultrasound). When applied to heat, the glue starts to melt and penetrates into the fibres of the carrier material. When cooling, the glue hardens and securely and permanently fixes the elements in place.

The Hotfix crystals are therefore quick and easy to fix onto the carrier material, whether that is fabric or other suitable material. Depending on the material the crystal is being applied to, the temperature, application time and pressure can vary.

The Swarovski Hotfix adhesive is characterized by its wash resistance and easy-care properties.
