WE HAVE DEVELOPED DIFFERENT SOLUTIONS TO REFINE THE EDGES OF OUR PADS: EVERY SOLUTION HAS BEEN ENGINEERED AND DEVELOPED TO MAKE THE APPLICATION EASY AND THE QUALITY SUPERIOR.

CLOSED EDGE

During the final thermo-molding stage, in a single operation, the pad is cut to shape and the edges are curved, so to prevent the foam from showing around the pad perimeter. The Closed Edge allows to obtain very soft edges, facilitating any type of application in the shorts while eliminating any possible areas of friction.
The overall result is a very pleasant, clean, essential look.

BOTTOM EDGE

During the final process of thermoforming, the perimetral edge is flattened by the down side, leaving the upper side smooth and uniform. In the final thermoforming stage, the perimeter of the pad is pressed from beneath: this type of finish flattens the edge of the pad without stiffening it, leaving the top of the pad looking clean and simple, aesthetically pleasant and ideal for a three needle or four needle stitchings.

UPPER EDGE

Pressed edges can also be carried out on the upper side of the pad, forming a pressed rim that is 6/7 mm wide all along the pad’s perimeter. This more traditional finish is suggested for applications carried out with zig-zag as well as 3 and 4 needle stitching as pressed edge facilitates the process.

OPEN EDGE

Classical pad finish exposing a 2/3 mm foam edge, suggested for entry level products, normally applied with zig zag stitching.
