Product Description

The QC Hot Knife is a state-of-the-art, hand held, hot cutting, shaping and grooving tool!

This hot knife simplifies and eases the cutting of expanded polystyrene (EPS), extruded polystyrene (XEPS), polyethylene (PE), cross—linked polyethylene, polypropylene (PP), polyurethane (PU), foamed plastic, thermoplastic elastomers (TPE), and many other similar materials.

The QC Hot Knife eliminates the “snow shower” of foam beads, or crumbs, typically associated with other cutting tools, making clean and precise cuts.

It also features a unique patented “pulsing current” technology which heats the blade evenly and accurately, without overheating the handle.
