The new Premium Foam Cutter is a hand-held professional-grade hot blade cutting tool for cutting polystyrene and foamed plastics. It is suitable for cutting polyethylene, PVC, light weight plastics and rubbers, and can be used for cutting and sealing the ends of ropes.
The new model is air cooled and has been upgraded to allow for continuous use of the cutter in industrial and commercial applications.* This model replaces the trusty old KD-5H hand-held cutter.
The blade can heat up to 500C in a few seconds. Temperature is moderated by a 16 step dial.
This Premium Foam Cutter Kit includes the tool body, two cutting blades (150 and 200mm long), allen key and cleaning brush. The Premium Plus Kit contains an additional 300mm sculpting blade with fitting lugs and bolts - for cutting channels and for sculpting and profiling of polystyrene. Each variant comes in a plastic case for safe and easy storage and transport.
Warranty on the Premium Foam Cutter Kits is 1 year.
* Please note that as with all equipment that operates at high running temperatures intermittent cooling periods will prolong the life of the cutter. The spring-loaded trigger is not to be taped to ON position - this will void the cutter warranty. And when working around metal objects please take care not to short out the blade, or the terminals of the cutter.
