How it Works
Available through Glen Raven, the SGS machine features a 5.25' x 10' workspace. The machine uses 'heat blankets' and has a motorized lid operated by a dual-panel control allowing users to effortlessly raise and seal the lid. Fabric feeds through either side or through the front of the machine for added convenience.
Sunbrella's proprietary SGS thermal film uses a heat-activated adhesive that is dry to the touch at normal temperatures but liquid at activation temperatures. In conjunction with the vacuum system and heat source, the liquid adhesive better penetrates the fibers of the fabric to bond Sunbrella fabric and thermal film together without any cracking or creasing.
