Classification of Fusible Interlining:

Fusible interning is classified into six types. Those are-

  1. PVC coated interlining,
  2. PVA coated interlining,
  3. Polyethylene coated interlining,
  4. Polyester coated interlining,
  5. Poly amide coated interlining,
  6. Poly propylene coated interlining.

All the above types of fusible interlining have explained in the below:

1. PVC coated fusible interning:

  • PVC (poly vinyl) coated is used as resin coating.
  • PVC coated is suitable for both dry cleaning and washable garments.
  • It is significantly used for making the coat type garments.

2. PVA coated fusible interlining:

  • PVC (polyvinyl acetate) is used as resin coating.
  • Polyvinyl acetate coated interlining is not dry cleanable and it has limited wash ability.
  • Low pressure and temperature is required here which is used between the leather and far materials.
  • Here, the resin is normally in the form of a continuous plasticizing coating on the base fabric.
  • PVA coated fusible interlining is rarely used in garments manufacturing industry.

3. Polyethylene coated fusible interlining:

  • Here, polyethylene is used as resin coating.
  • The impact of varying the density of the resin is to give a greater resistance to dry cleaning solvents and a higher softening point with increasing elasticity.
  • Polyethylene coated fusible interlining is used in collar, cuff of shirt.
  • The fabric which is attached with this type of interlining can be washed in water.

4. Polyester coated fusible interlining:

  • In case of polyester coated fusible interlining, polyester is used as resin coating.
  • Here, polyester resins are used in washable dry cleanable garments. Because polyester is less water absorbent than poly amide.
  • Polyester coated fusible interlining can be used in all types of garments.
  • This is termed as ideal interlining.
  • It is available in market though costly in price.

5. Poly amide coated fusible interlining:

  • In case of Poly amide coated fusible interlining, poly amide is used as resin coating.
  • Poly amide coated interlining is widely used in dry cleaning solvents.
  • Higher temperature fusing is done for the garments which are washed at 60 degree temperature.

6. Polypropylene coated fusible interlining:

  • Polypropylene coated fusible interlining is similar to the properties of polyethylene coated interlining.
  • Comparatively higher temperature fusing is done here.
  • The fabric which is attached with this interlining can be washed with the water.
