Rhinestones Hot-fix is made in a variety of qualities and materials which have been explained under their individual headings. Most types are available from as little as 2 mm in diameter to over just over 10 mm in diameter. Many flat back stones are manufactured with a specially heat sensitive glue on the backing. They have a faceted front, and a flat back which has usually has a foil coating applied to help reflect the light and sparkle.
When this glue is heated it melts into the fabric and forms an excellent bond that can not only be washed, but also dry-cleaned. This is an important added advantage if garments are to be sold commercially and it also opens up the range of specialized fabrics that previously, because of the cleaning methods required, could only be decorated with sewn or clamped stones.
