Dye-Inhibiting Heat-Transfer Material

Stahls’ ID Direct’s (asi/88984) new CAD-COLOR SuperTEK Sublistop is a printable, dye-blocking heat-transfer material that offers decorators a solution for applying vibrant, full-color designs to performance fabrics. The fast, low temperature heat application eliminates heat-press marks.

The key technology behind SuperTEK Sublistop is Stahls’ ONYX STiX2. This charcoal-based adhesive prevents sublimated dyes from bleeding through while allowing a four-way stretch. Short for “sticks to anything,” ONYX STiX2 adheres to a wide range of performance materials such as polyester and Lycra/spandex while keeping a lightweight, soft-hand feel.

SuperTEK Sublistop is available by the yard and designed for use with a print/cut system.
