At a size of 46cm by 49cm (18" x 19") our reusable, silicone rubber pad is a perfect aide when heat applying heat transfers, especially heat transfer vinyls. It achieves a slightly textured finish, but helps to heat apply near sensitive areas, such as zippers and buttons, protect the upper platen from scratches and to ensure a good bond with flex/vinyl heat transfers by forcing the vinyl into the weave of the garment.
It can either be used to protect buttons, zippers, or snaps from the heat process and to avoid scratching the upper platen of your heat press, or as a post-application aide to ensure that the edges of designs (especially flex/vinyl) are bonded properly to the garment.
Application Tip: Increase the application time or temperature slightly when using the Grip-Flex Pad to apply designs, as heat will take a little bit longer to get to your heat transfer.
