When To Use Solvy (Wash Away Backing) For Commercial Machine Embroidery
Use Wash-Away Solvy™ To Solve Embroidery Problems
(Topping and/or Backing)
Using Solvy™ on top of your embroidery and/or as a backing will help you get the results you’re looking for without compromise - crisp lettering, stitches above fabric pile, and no show backing. Creating a perfect finished product that your customers would have never thought possible.
Top 5 Reasons To Use Solvy™
1. High Pile Fabrics
Solvy™ is used on top of the fabric allowing more detail to be seen on any intricate design by helping to hold the pile/fabric down during the stitching process.
2. Loose Knit Fabrics
Use Solvy™ to help hold the stitches above the fabric during the embroidery sewout process by preventing the stitches from getting lost in (sinking into) the fabric.
3. No Show Backing (Wash-Away)
Hoop Solvy™ under the garment for no show, wash-away backing on high pile fabrics.
4. Creating Patches
Firmly hoop Ultra Solvy™ film without additional stabilizer. Embroider directly onto the film and then punch out the finished embroidery from the Ultra Solvy™. Now you have embroidered patches/emblems with neatly finished edges.
5. Free Standing Lace
Fabri-Solvy™ is an ideal non-woven fabric backing for free standing lace that can withstand high stitch count designs. It is a fabric-like, water soluble backing that has a silky, soft feel and an opaque color
