What is the difference between hot cut and cold cut?



This refers to the type of knife used to cut your material.



A HOT cut is achieved by using a heated knife that cuts by melting. Materials cut in this manner are usually sealed and will not fray.



A COLD cut is achieved by using a two-piece knife that cuts by shearing. Materials cut in this manner will normally fray.



Some materials, such as hook & loop, may be cut with either method without fraying.

If in doubt, please send us samples of your material for an evaluation, or complete our CONTACT or ESTIMATE form.
