Cutting wires for rigid foam or Styrofoam cutting devices
CUTTING WIRES FOR HARD FOAM CUTTERS
With the hot wire for a clean cut
If you attach great importance to clean edges when cutting polystyrene and do not like electrostatically charged waste, you will use a cutting wire for polystyrene cutters for this work. Because only with the Styrofoam cutting wire you can achieve accurate results and at the same time benefit from a comfortable and clean cutting technique. Cutting wire for Styrofoam cutter is suitable for commercial and private use in a wide variety of applications.
How hot wires work
The Styrofoam cutting wire is a so-called heating conductor wire. Made of a nickel-based alloy, preferably nickel-chromium-copper alloy, the wire for Styrofoam cutter has special properties. These are in particular a good corrosion resistance and, for cutting wire for Styrofoam cutter indispensable, the high temperature resistance. This is necessary because the cutting wire must heat up sufficiently high. Because the melting point of polystyrene lies in the temperature range of approximately 180 ° C. Only when the wire for Styrofoam cutter reaches this high temperature, a clean and, above all, smooth cutting edge results. Regardless of whether you are making a straight or half-round cut. The Styrofoam cutting wire is heated via a power supply integrated in the Styrofoam cutter. A push of a button is enough and within seconds the cutting wire reaches the required temperature. Stop the power supply, the wire cools down in no time. Nevertheless, care should be taken after completing work to avoid burns.
Areas of application of Styrofoam cutting wire
The cutting wire for Styrofoam cutter is always used, if you require an exact cut and high accuracy of fit. This applies, for example, for the exact cutting of the thermal insulation. Use a knife for this work, fringe the interfaces and air circulates between the adjacent insulation boards. With heat, you melt the cut edges and get a smooth and perfectly fitting surface. If you need wedge-shaped, round or semicircular cutouts, realize them only by the application of heat. Only in this case you will receive the desired fit and dimensionally accurate result.
Various product variants for Styrofoam cutters
The selection of Styrofoam cutters is large and ranges from simple hand cutting bars for longitudinal and miter cuts to professional devices with numerous cutting options. The product variety of the cutting wire for polystyrene cutters is just as big. In order to order the right cutting wire, it is therefore important to know your own device type and to order the right cutting wire for this device. High-quality cutting wire for Styrofoam cutters are delivered in the appropriate length for your device. Two eyelets attached to the wire ends make the months easier by simply hooking them into the retaining springs of the cutter. This product variant is uncomplicated to clamp and the springs automatically ensure the correct tension of the cutting wire. For devices without these clamping aids, cutting wire for Styrofoam cutters in rolls is available. In this case, cut the exact wire length, but pay attention to sufficient mechanical stress when inserting. This is ideal if the wire sounds when plucking.
