Cleaning Heat Transfer Press Platen

Posted on Sat, 1 Apr 2006 at 13:43



I have an older Heat Transfer Press with a ceramic type heating platen. It is dirty, burned in foreign inks or whatever. The company who manufactured it no longer exists.

I have run into problems where the garbage on the surface has left spots on the T-shirts that i pressed on it. I would like to find a solvent or something to clean the surface so this junk is removed, so it wont transfer to other shirts.

I dont want to corrupt the stability of this heating element cover/ platen.

Thanks for offing suggestions.

Sincerely,

Andrew Huer

You should be using a Teflon Transfer sheet when using your press. This will prevent all material on the heated surface from leaving residue on your garments. The sheets are simply placed over the transfer before you press it down.

The Teflon sheets only run about $9.00 and will last for years.
