Bester temporärer Sprühkleber für Maschinenstickerei

Those who have experience in embroidery know that the task often involves the use of a glue. And there are temporary spray adhesives designed for different types of embroidery projects. 

However, it is important to remember that not all temporary spray adhesives are suitable for all embroidery projects. The goal of this post is to explain the role of temporary spray adhesive for machine embroidery. Here, we will also introduce you to some of the best temporary spray adhesives for embroidery. 

Why do you need adhesive for embroidery?

Spray adhesive is particularly useful when you are working with slippery fabrics. When used correctly, spray adhesive can make the process of machine embroidery a lot easier and smoother. Machine embroidery adhesive keeps the fabrics in place,  reduces wrinkles and prevents creeping. 

In the garment industry, there are various use cases of spray adhesives. However, here we are focusing on machine embroidery only. In general, spray adhesive is a type of glue that is contained in a canister and released in the form of a fine mist. It is important to note here that spray adhesive designed for machine embroidery must be temporary, not permanent. 

When the fabrics no longer need to be held together, the adhesive can be easily washed away. This adhesive dries quickly, in part because it is petrol-based. 

In machine embroidery, spray adhesive is used in the processes of , floating, and patches. And there are different types of adhesives for these different processes. 

There are stabilizers that are used for the same purpose. They are basically of two types: iron on and water soluble stabilizers. Some iron on stabilizers come with coatings of adhesives. One limitation of iron stabilizers is that you must use them once iron hits the fabric. 

Alternatively, you can use a water soluble stabilizer. However, the product has a bad rap for leaving a cotton fiber or cellulose residue behind. 

In some cases, you can use a stabilizer in conjunction with spray adhesive. When you are working with applique, spray adhesives are definitely better than stabilizers. That is in part because stabilizers are often associated with unsightly problems such as puckering. 

What are the best temporary spray adhesives for embroidery?

The main purpose of using embroidery spray adhesive is to prevent the fabric from wrinkling, shifting or stretching. However, it is important to choose adhesive that is particularly suitable for the project you are working on.

Tips for using machine embroidery adhesive

  • Overheated adhesive can distort the embroidery. Also, do not overspray the adhesive because that can leave grime and make it hard for you to reposition the fabric.
  • Before you apply the spray, do a little bit of testing by applying it on a small part of the fabric to see if the adhesive produces the result you expect.
  • Remove the adhesive from the fabric as per the instructions provided in the label. Do not scrub, rub or use soap unnecessarily.
  • If the general approach does not work, consider tacking or pinning the piece of fabric with a tack stitch.
  • When it comes to applying spray adhesive for embroidery, accidental bonding is very common. If that happens, remove the product as per the instructions provided in the label.
  • The needle can get a little bit hot and melt the bond material. If you notice the needle gumming or embroidery thread breaks, slow down the machine a bit.
  • Make sure the room is well-ventilated, particularly if you have asthma. 

Conclusion

Spray adhesives can make embroidery a lot easier by stabilizing fabrics. However, your choice of adhesive matters, and so does the way you apply it. The adhesive you choose must be water-soluble and temporary. Avoid overspraying, and make sure the room is well-ventilated—even if you are using a non-toxic adhesive. 

If you need spray adhesive for embroidery, you will do just fine with any of the five products mentioned above. However, always aim to get the best out of the spray adhesive for fabric embroidery. Choose a product that is designed for the particular type of fabric you are working with.
