Ecobond Stitchless Selector Guide

These films may be used to eliminate stitching required on uppers for design purposes. The single layer films may be used to permanently combine mesh, synthetics, PVC, TPU, and other materials. By choosing the appropriate coextrusion, one side will seal to the surface of the upper while the other may be printed or colored to give the desired effect without laminating. The following chart shows a few examples of Stichless® film offered. This chart is not meant to be exclusive; films may be custom compounded as required. Please talk to your Worthen/UPACO representative for further information.
