The 2078/I Hot Fix Swarovski Rimmed Flatback rhinestones are used primarily on fabrics as these rhinestones have a heat activated glue on the back of the stones. This type of rhinestone is very popular in the fashion industry, dance, figures skating, ballroom and theatrical costumes. These stones can also be used to create rhinestone transfers that are heat set onto fabric. To apply these rhinestones, you must use an iron, hotfix applicator tool or heat set machine.
