    can the Elastolite panel be heat pressed directly to fabric ?

    I was wondering the same... Why can't you cut this?? thanks

    • It ruins the waterproofing on the panel, which is one of the biggest features of this material.

        Aside from the waterproofing can these be cut without killing the panel.

        • Supposedly, yes. You'd have to be very, very careful to not end up shorting the two layers internally (and ruining the panel). However, then you can't use the flexibility feature of this, as that would likely lead to the cut ends shorting.
