Felt/Blanket is a very important spare part for a roller heat press. Its tightness/looseness, balance, and cleanness or not, will affect the printing result.

Following are three tips to longer the service of felt:

1. Don’t separate the felt from the drum frequently.

When you separate the felt from the drum and cover to drum again and again, the felt will become longer and loose. The pressure during heat press of fabric and sublimation paper will be different. Which will cause the color after printing to be not be the same. So after a long time of use, you will need to change a new felt. 

2. Protect the felt from getting dirty

Craft paper is necessary for the below case:

A.when you print for dark color in light fabric

B. the sublimation paper width is wider than the fabric

C.When you print for cut piece fabric to roll sublimation paper

3. Clean the felt while it gets dirty

If the felt gets dirty, how to clean the dirty felt of the roller heat presses? 

A.Set roller machine temperature be 180 Celsius

B.Feed a 10-meter blank fabric into the drum

C.Repeat the second process 3-4 times, then you can see the dirty color of felt getting light. 

4. Don’t put scissors on the working table

The scissor or any other tool cannot be put on the working table of the roller heat press machine. Otherwise, it may get into the drum and cut the felt during feeding the fabric and paper.

5. The calendar machine needs to run while hot.

The felt will burn under high temperatures, so you have to keep the machine running while the temperature is over 100 Celsius. And if something emergency happens, you have to separate the felt from the drum immediately.

Above all is the way to extend the service time for a felt/blanket or roller heat press.
