Chemica: Heat transfer for textiles

Located in Saint-Étienne since 1983, Chemica is specialized in manufacturing heat transfer films for textile personalisation. The company and its subsidiaries (US, HK, and China) were the foundation stone of Flexdev Group which comprises five other companies across the European continent; Stilscreen, Sefa, Transfer ID, Sporting ID, and Elms, operating each in a complementary field of textile personalisation.

Chemica offers a full range of heat transfer films affording you the opportunity to customise all types of textiles with a heat press or a domestic iron. Chemica manufactures in France heat adhesive films for cutting plotters ; also called flex, flock, heat transfer vinyl (HTV), and printable media. We also market a line of accessories like application tape (adhesive film) granting easier use of our printable range.

Cutting flex, printable media and accessories

Thanks to the quality and diversity of our products, we could achieve a worldwide development in various areas like the sportswear textile market, event market, workwear market (corporate), and fashion. It is therefore possible to apply decoration and personalisation on many types of textile surfaces such as cotton, nylon, polyester, leather, and technical textiles.

With a range of forty-three references of cutting flex and printable media, Chemica gives you all the options to please your imagination and personalise your textiles according to your taste and desireSmooth, glitter, velvet, matt or semi-matt finish, very thin or 3D effect, opaque, transparent, or even blockout (prevents dye migration of sublimated garments), the choice is yours to release your creativity and make your own design! Moreover, our wide range allows you to choose the appropriate printable media according to the type of your ink solvent, eco-solvent, latex, UV, and sublimation.

In order to complete our printable media range, we offer you 4 repositionable application tapes, with various tack levels (low-tack, medium-tack, and high-tack). These tapes allow you to transfer and to store your designs such as logos, letters, and numbers. Thanks to our accessories range (hooks, tweezers, and squeegees), weeding our films is so easy. 

Optimal personalization guaranteed by the quality of our products

The compliance of our products with market and fashion trends, and also with environmental standards (REACH) and textile industry requirements (products labelled OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100, CQ909/2 class I, CQ909/3 class II), are both primary values of our company. Our rigorous quality check is the key to accomplish our daily mission: our customers’ satisfaction.
