Steinel HL 2020 E heat gun is the premium heat gun at Express Sign Products. It offers 3 variable speeds of airflow and variable electronic temperature control.
A simple thumb slider controls the 3 stage airflow. Stage 1 blows air at 4 cfm, stage 2 at 4-8 cfm, and stage 3 6-13 cfm. A plus-minus toggle controls the temperature. An LCD screen displays temperature setting. Temperature ranges from 120 - 1,150°F (50 - 620°C) in steps of 10°F. Heat is produced by a sturdy ceramic element.
The HL 2020 E has a few other convenient features. A residual heat indicator warns the user that the outlet nozzle is still hot. Rubber bumpers let the heat gun stand on its own. A built in hanger makes it easy to keep the gun close by. All 1.34" diameter industry standard nozzles fit on this gun. The HL 2020 E is compatible with the HL Scanner, an optional heat scanner that displays surface temperatures.
A heat gun is invaluable for vinyl graphics and wraps. During installation, heat increases stretchability and conformability. This is particularly useful for car wraps and rows of rivets. Heat can also trigger material memory, returning over-stretched wrap vinyl close to its original form. During removal, heat softens vinyl, making it easier to peel off.
Steinel heat guns are used by professionals everywhere. A few features stand out. Thermal cutout prevents overheating and damage. The power cord can be replaced without disassembling the whole gun. Optimized weight balance reduces hand fatigue. These German-engineered tools have characteristic precision, quality, and durability.
HL 2020 E comes with a one year limited warranty.
