|Sewing PUL and Barrier Fabrics|
Barrier fabrics are designed to provide a leak and non-wicking barrier. Depending on the application, special preparation and sewing techniques should be observed.
If you need to wash your items prior to use or delivery to your customers, wash the completed garments. PUL stabilized against wringing damage once it is sewn into a garment.
Ballpoint or stretch needles only. Never use sharp or leather punching needles as the yse will damage the knit substrates.
Using a teflon coated sewing foot is recommended when sewing PUL. It allows the fabric to move through the machine at good speeds and with minimal sticking.
