Series 1500 Heat Transfer Pads
Heat transfer pads — in sizes to 24" x 24"— are fabricated of silicone rubber bonded to aluminum or steel. They are used in hot roll leaf stamping for heat sealing application at temperatures to 500ºF. Type I pads use silicone rubber from 1/32" through 1/4" thick bonded to metal from 1/32" through 1/4". Type II pads (US Patent No. 3507739) which add a mechanical bond achieved through use of a perforated metal backing, provide superior life in most applications. Floral, wood grain, and other designs can be produced from customer-supplied metal masters.
