With the M-10 and M-20 Power Supplies, the tip temperature can be adjusted from 300°F (149°C) to 1450°F (788°C). The mass of the stripping blades of the HOTWEEZERS® resists cool down when they contact the work. Because of this, the tip temperature can be maintained at a level very near the softening point of the insulation material but below its charring or ignition temperature. Virtually any organic or synthetic insulation can be stripped without burn marks.
It is now possible to thermal strip low-temperature materials like PVC, Nylon and Polyethylene without the insulation slugs sticking to the stripper or the conductor.
The HOTWEEZERS® will easily handle high-temperature insulations such as Tefzel®*, Teflon®*, and Silicone Rubber without charring.
OTHER TIPS FOR USE:
Turn the M-10 Power Supply off before switching from high to low. This will prolong life of power supply fuse and prevent potential arcing.
