Frequently Asked Questions

Hook & Loop

Many people call it “velcro,” but VELCRO® Brand is actually the name of just one brand of hook & loop— the brand founded by the original inventor of hook & loop fastening systems. There are many other brands available worldwide; WBC Industries carries VELCRO® Brand, Aplix® brand, and our own in-house brand. So when you call to place an order for "velcro" fasteners don’t be surprised to hear “Would you like VELCRO® Brand or WBC brand?” in response!

Loop is the soft, fuzzy side, which is composed of hundreds of thousands of individual “loops” that the hook material grabs onto when the two are mated (put together). The hook is considered the "rough" side. Loop is referred to as the "female" side and can also be called "pile". Hook is considered the "male" side.

In order to determine which type of hook & loop you need, you must consider the application it will be used for. More information is available on the individual product pages, and samples of many products are available for purchase on our Etsy site

Sew quality refers to hook & loop that does not have an adhesive backing; it is intended for applications that involve sewing the hook & loop to another material. Pressure-Sensitive Adhesive (PSA) is an adhesive that comes pre-coated on the back of hook & loop material.

PSAs are considered a semi-permanent bond; they are not washable or dry-cleanable.
