HOT MELTING CUTTING OF STABILTEX
Fonda G. Thomsen
ABSTRACT—Stabiltex, a plain woven multifilament polyester fabric, has found widespread use in conservation, especially with textiles. The biggest drawback in its use has been the fraying of the cut edges and the limited fabric width—one meter. Using an electric wax pen, techniques were developed to overcome these problems.
