Aside from global brands of printing machines to be on exhibit, Next Tech Screen Supply will also introduce special flex vinyl to enhance the visual and competitiveness of manufacturers. Mr. Kittichai remarked, “High quality flex is widely popular because of its thinness, softness, and durability that makes it a perfect choice to decorate sportswear, t-shirts, polo shirts or any fabrics such as cottons and polyesters. What’s more, our special flex uses 130°C of heat for 3 – 5 seconds during transfer process which protects any damages on fabric. Normal flex requires 170°C and 10 – 15 seconds to transfer, which could potentially ruin the fabric.”

He continued, “We have many variety of flex such as the FLEX Chameleon that allows the design to blend as part of your garment while also gives a light-weight and comfortable feel as well. You will never understand the smoothness until you experience it yourself. Moreover, you can also mix and match with other variants of flex to transform normal fabrics into visual striking clothes.”
