Performance Wear Backing
ActionBack is an exciting new cut-way product that is exclusive to Gunold. It is highly effective backing for stabilizing stretchy, slippery garments like today's popular performance wear. Stable in both directions, Your customers want today's technical fabrics like Dri-Wicking Material, UnderArmour, etc that keeps the moisture away from the body. These are great performance fabrics, but they are thin, lightweight, and stretchy; many having Lycra content. And that means it's difficult to keep your outlines on track. Traditional stabilizers of the non-woven variety or even the soft and sheer may be difficult to work with these types of materials.
Gunold went back to some stabilizers that we used to rely on many years ago (woven stabilizers), and it turns out these are ideal for controlling the technical performance material!
With ActionBack, there is no need to adhere the stabilizer to the fabric, just hoop normally.
Make sure that the fabric has a smooth surface without excess fabric that can be pushed around by the presser foot. You will have every stitch is in place and every outline on track. ActionBack will prevent drifting outlines, puckering and pooching.
Take all those orders for Dri-Wicking Materials and other technical fabrics, and when working with these lightweight, stretchy knits, choose the only stabilizer made just for them, ActionBack from Gunold.
