Excalibur hot-melt powders are heat activated adhesives that can be used for virtually any application requiring a heat applied system. When applied to transfers printed with Excalibur plastisol inks this greatly increases the washability of the product and the adhesion to garments made of synthetic fabric. All powders are available in 1.1 lb (500g) shaker can, 6.6 lb (kg) or 22 lb (10kg) containers.


  • Available in different size grinds to accommodate transfers with fine detail or large, solid areas.
  • Easily melts enabling normal plastisol transfer temperatures to be utilized.
  • Completely phthalate-free and lead-free formulation complies with all standards of Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) banning phthalates and heavy metals in textile-printing inks.


H–1-A medium-grind hot -melt powder.  Melts quickly and is an ideal choice where fast application is required especially used with both plastisol and water-based transfers.

H-10– A very fine grind hot-melt powder.  This size grind is ideal for extremely fine detailed transfers  where you cannot afford to have fine lines get lost or pulled off.

H-15–An extremely coarse grind hot-melt powder.  It is used primarily for covering large areas such as crests or badges.  Large particle size makes this powder easy to handle providing strong bonds to large, solid areas.

H-23–Multi-grind formula meaning it contains all size particles and is ideal for flock transfers.

C-55–Ultrafine adhesive powder for promoting the adhesion of finely detailed transfers to garments.

C-56–Fine grind transfer powder with slightly larger particle than C-55 to promote the adhesion of transfers to garments.

C-57–Our best adhesive powder to promote the adhesion of plastisol transfers to garments.  This multi-grind powder gives a very soft-hand feel and increases the stretch in the transferred print.  Excellent choice for backing tagless transfers.


Transfers—Sprinkle H-1, H-10, H-15, C-55, C-56 or C-57 on the wet ink, shake off excess and heat cure.

Crests—Sprinkle H-1 or H-10 onto back of crest and heat cure until adhesive has melted.

Flock Transfers—Sprinkle H-23 onto wet adhesive, shake off excess and air dry.  After transfer has completely dried shake or brush off excess.

Puff Transfers (Plastisol or Water-Based)—Sprinkle H-1 or C-57 powder on wet ink, shake off excess and heat cure at low temperature.  For water-base transfers allow to air dry and then shake or brush off excess.
