“Do you have to bed the pads in before use?”

Optimising press pad life and usability

One of the most important procedures for optimizing press pad life is to remember to install them without over-tensioning.

“How many cycles are required before applying extra tension to the press pad?”

We recommend that the press pads be used for at least 500 cycles (at full format size) before applying additional tension to the press pad. 

Over-tensioning could result in tearing and/or reducing the press pad life and usability, therefore, it is important that you carefully follow the instructions provided.
