Iron On backing for patches –It’s a fast and easy way to attachment. Just put the patch on the clothing and cover it with a thin wet towel to prevent scalding. Then take the iron on the patch for 15-30 seconds until it is fully seated. Iron on backing provide an easy way to attach patches to almost any type of material. A standard home iron with a temperature of 302oF can be used to connect iron blocks for 5-8 seconds When you use ironing support on a patch, you only receive temporary security because it does not last long and we do not recommend using a hot press to apply the hot stamp. Iron On backings are perfect for ceremonial and casual wear, but never use it for any type of practice or training. As you know, Iron on backings are mainly used to safely place the patch during the sewing process, so iron on backing is not the best choice if you want to use it for active lifestyle purposes.
