How to Flash Press FlexCut Sticky LT

Heat Transfer Tip Saves Time & Money

RTape has a new heat transfer solution that saves time and money. Here’s how. When decorating a heat sensitive fabric, RTape’s FlexCut™ Sticky LT (low temperature) is typically heat pressed at 235°F (115°C) for 17 seconds.

Did you know that you could also “flash press” FlexCut™ Sticky LT onto regular cotton fabrics and cotton blends? By heat pressing FlexCut™ Sticky LT at a temperature of 320°F (160°C), you can reduce the pressing time to only 9 seconds. That’s a savings of 8 seconds per piece.

Over the course of a year that 8 seconds can add up to big savings. Let’s imagine that you typically heat press 400 garments a day. By reducing pressing time by 8 seconds, you save an hour each day. At an average of 220 working days a year and a burdened hourly shop rate of $75 per hour, your annual savings amounts to more than $15,000.

If you would like to put FlexCut™ Sticky LT to the test, call Regional Supply (801-262-6451). For more information or samples, you can also visit RTape on the web at
