Foam Sales' new Cordless Hand Held Polystyrene Blade Cutter is a step up in power for our range of small cutters. The DC power supply can deliver 20W to produce a blade temperature of up to 350C.
Our customers will be pleased to know that this cutter is suitable for carving heavy density polystyrene, including XPS, as well as light weight foamed plastics too.
It will be very suitable for model makers and small business users, as well as for hobby and craft room applications. The unit is more robust than wand-style models with a 60mm blade that is strong and easy to use ensuring precise, clean cuts.
In less than ten seconds the cutter heats to 110C and is immediately ready for use. The blade will heat to higher temperatures so long as the switch button continues to be depressed.

Tips for use include giving the cutter a rest after prolonged periods of cutting, and not maintaining maximum temperature for long periods. Never tape down the switch into a permanent ON position.
Let the heat do the cutting - there is no benefit in forcing the blade through the polystyrene. Misuse like this resulting in a broken blade is not covered by warranty. See the video here below for example of how the cutter can be used.
