Soon I'll be buying a Stahls Hotronix MAXX Heat
Presses, which I have noticed that it says it has a 'Teflon Coated Heat Platen'
But does this mean that I do not need to use a
I would like the best finish possible on my
garments, so if it is recommended that I use a cover sheet, what cover sheet
should I use? the ones I can buy are:
Silicone Cover Sheet.
Teflon Cover Sheet
Grip Flex Pad (with Nylon materials to bed the
vinyl into the weave of the fabric.)
Roland I think you mean one of theses? http://www.targettransfers.com/d/AC02/Teflon-Pillows
I'll only be using vinyl, I wont be doing sublim, would I still need one of them?
can anyone tell me what the difference is between and silicone sheet and a teflon sheet?
as i can get a silicon one for £1.50 but have to pay £15 for a teflon sheet.
Yes, that looks like the 'pillow' I have...came with the antique heat press I bought years ago.
Still working...built like a tank.
As for sublimation-if you do ANY lettering on the 'wild color' soccer shirts (goalies wear them) and the
100% poly shirts for any sports with patterns and designs in the material-those were SUBLIMATED before being cut and sewn for the shirt-and that sublimation will TRANSFER again under heat and pressure-I had this happen and it looked weird-but the back of the shirt design 'resublimated' right through the front of the shirt. So I always used the pillow INSIDE the shirts from then on.
Teflon sheets last forever-mine must be about 15 years old now. The 'pillow' is at least 25 or more!
