The Difference Between Low and High Quality Hot Fix Crystals
Hot fix crystals are being widely used in the textile and garment industry to create impressive motif designs. The designs add glamour to the clothes appearance. Many of the designs are also used as company logos on shirts, whose outstanding designs help promote business. The motifs created from hot fix crystals have several other applications and are becoming an integral part of the fashion industry. Crystals' quality is determined based on their cut, facets, and color. Depending on the aforementioned factors, they are categorized as Swarovski crystals, Preciosa crystals, Korean DMC rhinestones, Korean rhinestones and China rhinestones. Among these, Swarovski and Preciosa (Czech) crystals are the most expensive, and considered to be the best quality. Korean DMC is more sparkle and colorful then Chinese and more cheaper then Swarovski and Preciosa.
The last 2009/2010y Generation Korean DMC Hotfix crystal have very strong thermo glue and for some kind of textile is better then Preciosa and all Chinese DMC brands.
Determining the quality of hot fix crystals is possible just by inspecting them visually. High quality crystals generally produce more glitter and glitz compared to the low quality ones; they have that extra bit of sparkle to attract attention. The extra glitter in high quality crystals is due to their finer edged cutting, giving them sharp and smooth facets. In comparison, low quality crystals do not have sharp edges or facets. While their glitter is the easiest method of establishing the quality of crystals, most manufacturers also assign them various distinctive grades for ease of identification. This grading is done on the basis of the quality of cuts, colors and shapes of the crystals, with higher grades specifying better quality crystals.
Other important characteristics for our Korean DMC rhinestones grading include the bottom diameter sizes and standard sizes of crystals. Our Korean DMC are high quality crystals are always precisely cut, their bottom diameter size perfectly matches the standardized sizes. Smaller or larger bottom diameters generally means the crystals are of lower quality.
With regard to color to our Korean DMC Rhinestones, high quality crystals are of uniform color throughout, while low quality crystals might look dark from one angle and lighter from another. In terms of shapes, high quality crystals come in various perfectly-cut shapes including stars, flowers, pendants, etc.
Lower quality crystals, on the other hand, are unable to be cut into the finer edges required for achieving these sharp, well-defined shapes, and so can be easily identified at a glance. Over and above these identifiers, once can also differentiate between low and high quality hot fix crystals by their adherence to fabrics. High quality crystals will stick to almost all fabrics quickly and strongly, and won't come off during washing. They also require less ironing to adhere to the material. Low quality hot fix crystals do not carry any of these characteristics, and therefore require lots of effort to get adhere, but very few to come off the fabric.
