Smooth Fuse Industrial Release Agent - removes resin contamination, lubricates fusing surfaces, extends belt life, eliminates 'Stick Up' and protects cloth from damage. Ideal for all conveyor & flat-bed pressing machines- 5 Litre Refill
Smooth Fuse has been developed to address problems of adhesive "stick up" on fusing presses used for the application of fusible interlinings on garment sections. Smooth Fuse is also used to achieve smoother conveyor running in high production situations and to extend the life of conveyor belts by lubricating their PTFE surfaces and keeping them free from hard adhesive deposits. Garment manufacturers, having tried Smooth Fuse on their fusing presses, continue to use it long term. They experience the benefits of reduced stoppage time, smoother, trouble free processing of fusible interlinings and the reduction of wastage and problems of reduced efficiency associated with sticky, dirty conveyor belts.

Unique in its formulation and packaging, there is no comparable product currently available. The only other products used in this field come in either aerosol format or in powder. These are strictly cleaning products. Aerosols cannot provide heavy enough coatings to be really effective in dealing with heavy adhesive contamination. Powders and aerosols do not provide any preventative lubricating functions.

Smooth Fuse is safe to use and is non-toxic. It is supplied in concentrated format through a trigger spray in the 500 ml bottles or in 5 litre containers with a more powerful hand spray for bigger production requirements.

Smooth Fuse is widely regarded as the most effective and versatile product for cleaning and lubricating fusing press conveyor belts and fusing surfaces.

Smooth Fuse SF10 Main features
Reduces Downtime & Improves Productivity by Eliminating Slow-downs from:
Sticking fabrics / interlinings missing the off-load position
Sticking fabrics/interlinings contacting offload guides, causing a concertina effect on the materials
Reducing conveyor belt replacements caused by abrasion from hard adhesive contamination
Reducing conveyor belt replacements caused by adhesive debris on conveyor rollers
Reducing conveyor belt replacements caused by joint damage
Reducing conveyor belt replacements caused by wear and tear to drive systems and other parts of the machine
Improves Quality & Reduces Wastage by:
Minimising the incidence of stain marks on fabric during the fusing process
Minimising the incidence of stain marks on fabric occurring along belt abrasion lines
Preventing a concertina effect on the material from sticking fabrics/interlinings on the offload guides
Improving fabric "handle"
Safe, Easy & Cost-Effective to use
Safe - no harmful vapours or CFCs
Easy - pump action spray delivers a direct, dense, even application every time
Cost-effective - cleaning and lubricating particles remain active to the last drop
Available in a variety of sizes and formats
Smooth Fuse SF10 User Information Sheet
Uses
Smooth Fuse SF10 is primarily formulated to clean and lubricate PTFE coated surfaces of flat bed and conveyor fusing presses utilised in the garment manufacturing industry for the application of fusible interlinings onto garment sections. Polyester, Polyamide and other adhesives used in fusible interlinings become molten when heat is applied during the fusing process. For a variety of reasons some of the molten adhesive commonly becomes misplaced and adheres to conveyor belt or platen surfaces, to scraper blades, wiper/cleaning devices and to other sections of the presses.

Smooth Fuse SF10 s designed to clean surfaces contaminated with adhesive and residue, to act as a preventative agent by lubricating surfaces likely to become contaminated and to loosen hard compacted residue on PTFE coated conveyor belts and platen covers. When used in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions Smooth Fuse will:

Reduce maintenance and down time associated with heavy adhesive contamination of fusing surfaces
Reduce material sticking problems caused by sticky fusing surfaces.
Reduce wastage caused by fabric contamination from dirty fusing surfaces.
Extend PTFE surface belt and cover life
One of the unique features of Smooth fuse is that as a preventative solution it can be used continuously while the fusing operations are taking place

How to use Smooth Fuse SF10
As a preventative barrier lubricant for clean fusing surfaces

One of the most effective and unique cleaning/lubricating properties of Smooth Fuse SF10 is the barrier it creates between potential adhesive contamination and the PTFE coated surfaces of fusing press conveyor belts and platen covers. This barrier prevents adhesive from sticking to the belts/platens and from forming a hard residue when the belts/platens cool down. The Smooth Fuse SF10 barrier also prevents adhesive contamination building up on scrapers and other sections of the fusing press. This preventative barrier will work most effectively if belts and platen surfaces are kept free from contamination by ensuring that, using the machine's wiper systems or by hand, the residue is cleaned from belts/platens as the adhesive is released. It is important therefore that the cleaning systems and surfaces are regularly inspected and for example, new cleaning cloth on wiper systems is regularly exposed.

In the case of a conveyor fusing press ensure that the cleaning/wiper system has new wiper materials fitted for both upper and lower PTFE belts
Heat up the fusing press to normal fusing temperature (about 150c) and apply a coating of Smooth Fuse SF10 over the full area of the belts/platen.
In the case of conveyor machines the wiper materials should become saturated with Smooth Fuse SF10. The wipers will then continue to apply a light coating of Smooth Fuse SF10 onto the belts to provide a barrier to the adhesive while the fusing operations are taking place. In the case of platen machines or ineffective/non existent wiper systems, Smooth Fuse SF10 can be regularly sprayed directly on to the PTFE surfaces
Where relevant replace wiper materials and clean scraper blades regularly
Apply Smooth Fuse SF10 regularly (normally at least hourly) subject to the amount of adhesive contamination being experienced.
As a cleaning agent for contaminated conveyor belts and cleaning systems

In the case of a conveyor fusing press ensure that the cleaning/wiper system of the fusing press has new wiper materials fitted for both upper and lower PTFE belts
Heat up the fusing press to normal fusing temperature (about 150c) and apply a coating of Smooth Fuse over the full area of the belts. (see safety below)
Allow the machine to run for a few minutes applying more Smooth Fuse as necessary.
If the belts are heavily contaminated the wipers may become saturated with adhesive residue quite quickly as Smooth Fuse releases the contamination. Either a new surface of the wiper materials needs to be exposed, or new wiper materials need to be fitted. This will need to be repeated until the belts are clean. The cleaning process for PTFE coated belts/platens can be carried out by hand using a rough cloth and insulated gloves. This is often done while the machine is cooling down but the adhesive contamination is still molten or at the end of a production cycle.
Clean scrapers if the machine is fitted with these.
When belts are clean replace the wiper materials for upper and lower belts.
While the machine is still hot and running, apply another coating of Smooth Fuse. In the case of conveyor machines the wiper materials should become saturated with Smooth Fuse. The wipers will then continue to apply a light coating of Smooth Fuse onto the belts to provide a barrier to the adhesive while the fusing operations are taking place. In the case of platen machines Smooth Fuse can be regularly sprayed directly onto the PTFE surfaces
Where relevant replace wiper materials and clean scraper blades regularly
Apply Smooth Fuse regularly (normally at least hourly) subject to the amount of adhesive contamination being experience
