Replace Stitching with Hot Melt Adhesive FilmsReplace Stitching with Advanced Hot Melt Adhesive Films

Thermoplastics and Hot Melt Adhesive Films are revolutionizing a wide variety of industries that use fabric. Adhesives films like Sewfree and the world of Thermoplastics are allowing manufacturers to ditch the needle and thread and add details and function that are not possible with sewing. Thermoplastic Adhesive Films allow products to be lighter and have a lower profile. They are also more comfortable, more durable, and more fashionable, giving your product a competitive edge.

Some advantages to thermoplastic solutions include:

Improved Appearance

Hot Melt procedures replace elastics and bulky sewn seams in performance wear, intimate wear, and wearables. Hot Melt Film allows for optimum stretch and recovery while maintaining the sleek, smooth profile of a bonded seam or hem.


Sewfree seams are up to 6% lighter than traditional threaded seams.  When wet, Sewfree seams will absorb 50-60% less of its original weight. So no matter it’s application, you have a lighter weight product.


Sewfree has been put to the test. Both lab testing and field-testing show that Sewfree seams are just as strong, or even stronger, than sewn seams. In fact, during lab testing, fabrics would give before Sewfree seams.


Sewfree seams are up to 40% less restrictive then threaded seams. More flexibility means more options for designers and a better consumer experience.


Sewn seams require seam-sealing tape in order to be waterproof. With a heat sealed bond, Sewfree tapes are water resistant and allow you to skip the stitching all together.
