Features

Minimizes heat damage and other production losses. During the heat process, the HotMask protects the surface of the heat transfer material from heat related discoloring or any other damage.

Withstands long heat cycles. The polyester (PET) film of the HotMask withstands heat cycles as long as 60 seconds at 166 degrees C (330 degrees F)

No time wasted cleaning adhesive residue. After the heat transfer, HotMask removes easily without any adhesive residue. For best results, remove the HotMask while it is still warn.
