SEF are a leading French manufacturer of high quality, heat applied garment films commonly referred to as garment vinyl.

The SEF range includes self-coloured, cut-only films and white, printable films.  SEF also supply special films for metallic effects, for sublimation blocking, extreme stretch and 3d puff effects.

IMPORTANT - SEF products are NOT made of vinyl,  They are made from water based Polyurethane.   Why is that important?

1.   Vinyl is PVC and PVC is a product that is increasingly being avoided due to the hazzardous products that are released during and after manufacture and during application with a heat press. Dioxins and phthalates to name but two

2.  Polyurethane is a very stretchy product that does not lose its elasticity over time like vinyl
