The 2cm (3/4″) thick, heat-resistant foam core enables heat press operators to have a flat surface to heat apply transfers near to buttons, seams and zippers on garments. They produce an even distribution of pressure by absorbing the protruding elements into the foam on application, and prevent marks on heat transfers and letters from the uneven garment surface – Simply place the pillow inside or underneath the garment prior to application.
They can also be used in open-weave garments to prevent to heat transfer from bonding to the other side of the garment (if not threaded around the lower platen) and to prevent adhesives/inks from migrating into the lower platen.
They are also available in the following sizes:
- 20cm x 16cm (8″ x 6″) for shorts, short sleeves and childrens garments.
- 25cm x 25cm (10″ x 10″) for adult garments, such as polo shirts and t-shirts.
- 46cm x 13cm (19″ x 5″) for long sleeves and trouser legs.
You can also buy as a complete non-stick pillow set, containing one of each of the four sizes.
