HOW TO USE THERMO-TEL TAPES
Each package contains eight strips with five different temperatures (i.e. #5 = 290°, 300°, 310°, 320° and 330° F). When exposed to heat, the strip will darken as it reaches that temperature. By looking at the strip, you can tell what temperature has been achieved.
Each dryer, each job, garment and shop is different. As a result, you will need to understand and adjust your dryer. Belt speed, heater element height and jet-air flow especially affects temperature. Always test in a situation that simulates real production. For example, apply the Thermo-Tel on the exact garment type you will be printing on (not a rag, belt or different color) and run the same number of garments/pieces through the heat chamber as you will be doing in production.
