glossy/matte, flame resistant (no certification available!), with protective film
Lacquer film is a very low-priced PVC material which can be sewn or riveted (plastic and metal) as required. This makes it a great material to use for sewing a backpack or wallet; when not sewn it can function as a shower curtain or table cloth. Tip: the seams should be strengthened with SOFT-PVC GLUE.
The sewing foot will best glide on the sticky PVC when it is made of Teflon. It is, however, less expensive to use tissue paper as an underlay or to put some sewing machine oil (SILICONE OIL) on the area to be sewn to make it slippery.
The difference between single and double layered lacquer film is as follows: in the case of the single-layered version, the high gloss side is provided with a protective film before the film is wound on a roll. With such protection we offer this type in running metres as well. In the case of the double-layered version, the whole length of the film (30 m) is folded once in half (2 x 15 m) and then wound on a roll. In this way the high gloss sides, which now lie one on the other, protect themselves and the necessity of a protective film is dispensed with thereby lowering production costs while maintaining the same quality. As a result, the double-layered version is clearly the better choice for large decoration and handicrafts projects.
