Jesse J. Heap & Son offers four
types of Temperature Strips to be used for the belt
temperature calibration and testing of fusing, laminating,
and heat transfer machines. The strip is placed on the
moving belt which enters the heat chamber. Pull the
Temperature Strip off the belt as it exits the machine
and lay down on a table.

How to Read Temperature
To obtain an accurate reading of the printing temperature
inside the heat press, place the temperature indicator
strip face-down beneath a long swatch of fabric and
feed into the printer.
Read the highest temperature recorded inside the machine.
The temperature is indicated by the square which has
turned completely black. Disregard any temperature squares
which have only partially changed color.
The proper type of strip depends on the
temperature range of the process you are performing.
- Fusing operations usually use Type I (220-290 degrees
- Heat Transfer printing usually calls for Type III
(350 - 420 degrees F).
There are 8 temperature readings per strip in both F and C..
