Joins and seams represent one of the most important aspects in making a garment: as small as the holes produced by a needle might be, they can compromise the fabric’s watertight sealing ability and make way for leaks. By means of the process of bonding in with heat it is possible to completely seal the joins, finishing them with adhesive tape which ensure protection from liquids over the course of time: quite apart from the classical waterproofing of seams, heat bonding and taping are used in fashion featuring many types of tape and film which have opened new areas of personalisation to the universe of fashion, even in the field of embroidery.

A technical solution that is certainly revolutionary is the heat bonding-in of technical synthetic fabrics: using our bonding machines it is possible to achieve an effect that is technically contemporary and aesthetically pleasing as well as very comfortable and mechanically highly watertight, undoubtedly much more so than with traditional seaming.
In sports fields, as far as the special type of waterproof garments is concerned, taping techniques are to be considered particularly useful above all because, thanks to this process, it is possible to reintegrate watertight sealing not only keeping water out but also fluids and air in general.
But which are the materials which best lend themselves to this kind of process?

It is possible, for example, to proceed with fabric bonding in materials which are difficult to sew in seams, being either too open or slippery, so traditional seams do not guarantee sealing: in any case, it is still necessary to test the chosen materials, particularly to check the resistance to the various temperatures of the bonding process.
Our bonding presses, with a maximum field of 1mt x 63 cm, allowing regulation of time, pressure and temperature based on the materials chosen and the type of glue used.

Another important factor to consider during the bonding process is pressure: to prevent leaking of the glue which bonds the two materials and therefore to achieve a clean embroidery, it is not only necessary to regulate pressure but also the pressure of the machine’s plates. In general, considering that the bonding cycle requires different passages of alternate heat and cold, the time the materials remain inside the press is around one minute for a complete cycle of the process.
Thanks to experience acquired and research carried out over the last 10 years, we have know-how that allows us to offer our clients full assistance and a complete bonding process, above all in competition swimwear and also in the entire field of sportswear.
