Hotronix Heated Lower Press Platen - 16" x 20"


Eliminate scorching and reduce heat transfer application time with a Hotronix Heated Lower Press Platen!

This innovative accessory heats transfers and graphics from underneath, allowing for a lower application temperature on the top platen. Sensitive fabrics are exposed to higher heat on the inside of the fabric, which means users can apply transfers and heat transfer vinyl on expensive performance wear, polyester and triblends without the risk of leaving behind the classic heat press “box” or any scorch marks!

Not only is the Hotronix Heated Lower Press Platen the first on the market to be fully threadable, it also converts any Clam Hotronix Heat Press to a fully threadable model when used with a caddie.

  • No more scorched garments!
