This heated lower platen helps eliminate scorch marks on heat-sensitive materials and reduces dye-migration on sublimated fabrics, by adding heat from the bottom of the apparel instead of the high temperature of the top platen.
The Power Platen is controlled by a separate digital controller, which connects to 4 different size Power Platens.
The controller and platens are sold separately, or you can bundle and save with the full set.
The heat press Power Platen is compatible with the following heat presses:
When used with the Heat Press Caddie stand, the heat press Power Platen is fully threadable, allowing apparel to be "dressed" onto the platen for easier application.
For heat presses with a machine born-on date before 2014, call Stahls’ Hotronix at 800.727.8520.
