It’s just what everyone has been waiting for—a highly effective adhesive that makes it possible to apply Synthetic products to difficult textile and leather surfaces in an instant. A Fall/Winter 2019/20 product innovation, Synthetic Coldfix was developed by Swarovski to be used in situations where Hotfix doesn’t work. This includes heat- and pressure-sensitive materials such as silk, cashmere and wool, as well as genuine and artificial leathers that are not resistant to the minimum application temperature for Synthetic products of 140ºC (285ºF). Materials with low absorbency, too, including Lycra®, neoprene and fabrics treated with a water-repellent coating.
New Swarovski Synthetic Coldfix opens up a great range of creative possibilities for apparel and accessories. For example, thanks to needing only minimal pressure and little or no heat, it is now possible to embellish or customize finished products in-store or at fashion pop-ups. Try it on caps, bags and belts, as well as clothing. Coldfix can make shopping a fun event by tapping into the trend for bespoke products and experiences. It is equally suitable for experimenting with DIY looks at home. It has never been easier to add exciting crystallized embellishment to designs.
Coldfix is available for dazzling Swarovski Crystal Fabric and Swarovski Crystal Fine Rocks in a range of colors and effects, and it has a transformative effect on all kinds of materials. Simply press down with a rubber roller, and full bonding strength will be reached in 72 hours at room temperature. If a faster result is required, a heat press can be used on the reverse side at 90ºC (195ºF), achieving maximum strength in 12 hours. As well as being a quick and easy way to add glamorous sparkle to a vast range of products, Coldfix can usefully be washed: first turn the item inside out and use a mild detergent, choosing a gentle cycle up to 30ºC (90ºF). To protect the crystals even more, a soft wash bag is recommended. Do not use chlorine bleach.
