*Manufacturer recommended application settings are applicable only to hat presses with a single, top heating platen only. Hat presses with dual-heating platens (top and bottom, as is found in the Hotronix 360 IQ, and similarly equipped machines) will overcure the adhesive at the settings prescribed above.
Currently there is no available data from the manufacturer on usable settings for dual-platen presses, however, once such data becomes available, it will be published here.
Customers who have not used this product in their dual-platen press are advised to purchase some adhesive-backed sheet stock to perform their own testing.
To clean laserable leatherette items, use water and soap. It will not leave water spots. Rubbing alcohol works well on pen marks.
Leatherette does not absorb oils from hands/fingers.
