Pre-Ply Integration Instructions

GlideWear TM Low-Friction Fabric is extremely slippery so it is prepared with a temporary, water-soluble adhesive for easy cutting and sewing (making it "Pre-Ply"). All standard cutting and sewing can be used with Pre-Ply. All cutting and sewing should be done before washing out the adhesive. Once integrated into a finished item, Pre-Ply must be laundered to remove the adhesive. Therefore, the "GlideWear Low-Friction Effect" will not be detectable until after laundering.

Pattern, Cut & Sew

The fabric can be handled, cut and sewn in any traditional method. The best stitching technique for a specific item varies based on factors such as item, design, and material combinations.

When creating a product for consumers with reduced sensation (neuropathy or very sensitive skin, flat seams - placed away from parts of the body that are at a higher risk for skin breakdown - are recommended. It is recommended that GlideWear fabric be incorporated strategically, only in the areas where skin protection and/or reduced friction are needed.
