This vinyl is not PVC but Polyurethane HTV (PU). PU or polyurethane films offer distinct advantages:

  • Thinness and Flexibility:
    • PU films are thinner and more flexible compared to PVC, ensuring a smoother application process.
  • Eco-Friendly Properties:
    • PU films are considered eco-friendly and offer a softer feel, making them blend seamlessly with the garment.

In contrast, PVC heat transfer vinyl tends to be thicker and lacks environmental friendliness.
