Fusible Interlining Non Woven Interlining

Paper Fusion and Its Process.

What is Paper Fusion

Paper Fusion is also known as Non- Woven Fusible interlining. It is a material that will melt when heated. 


The woven kind is a cotton fabric with one side primed with fusible glue. The non-woven kind consists of agglutinated and compressed fibers and one side is primed with fusible glue.


Non-Woven Fusible Interlining fabrics are mainly used as a raw material in the sewing process and used in cuffs and collars of shirts.


As the name suggests it is a non-woven interlining but more like sheets of paper or cardboard. This type of material is used for bags and purses. 


It is made directly from fiber to fabric stage in the process reducing the cost of the base fabric. As there is no yarn used in producing nonwovens, it lacks the strength needed for garment use and there are many methods applied to present required power to nonwoven textiles, called Bonding.


Polyester fabrics commonly do not stain simply and are resistant to stretching or shrinking. Polyester linings are usually used for lining and insulating coats and hats but may be used for any other type of lining job. This lining polyester is equipped with a nice sheen and shows to be a part transparent.


Fusing Paper Process

To use paper fusion, the first step is to place the resin side of the fusing on the backside of the fabric and heat it with an iron. When placed on the fabric the melting action causes the interlining to stick to the fiber. 


The paper fusion is not woven or knitted, It is used to make fabrics stiffer and especially effective for mending hems and small holes. 


There are various qualities of paper fusing to meet the needs of different products. A shi collar would require thick fusing whereas, for a woman’s dress neckline, one would have to use thin fusing paper. Paper fusing can also be used in belt rolls, the lower part of salwar, bags, and much more. 


Selecting premium quality paper fusing is highly essential to create a well-constructed garment. Using the wrong type of paper fusing could make the garment odd-looking and would fail to provide support.
