Our PTFE coated sheets are made of sturdy materials which protect your garments from scorching when using your heat press, as well as protect your heat transfer press itself from incidental damage or stain from any ink or other materials being heat transferred onto the garment. In addition, the PTFE coated sheets help prevent bleed-through when heat curing a t-shirt after printing.
A single PTFE coated sheet is used to place on top of your transfer and garment and is sized to completely cover everything on your lower platen. An upper PTFE coated sheet is one of those things that is better to have and not need it, than it is to need it and not have it.
First, the sheet keeps any possible dyes from colored garments and residue from your transfers from getting on the upper heater block. A heater block can be wiped off, but it is much easier and simpler to wipe off the PTFE coated sheet. Second, some transfer times and temperatures are very close to the scorch point of fabrics. A PTFE coated cover sheet helps to prevent possible scorching.
