Stainless Steel Sealing Tanks
HB320 – max panel size 400mm x 500mm
HB1000 – max panel size 510mm x 1000mm
A completed Gedakop or ANO Transfer panel should be immersed in 98°C water for at least 45 minutes to seal the dye molecules in the surface of the aluminium, thus protecting the panel from scratching or by chemical attack from solvents etc. To carry out this process two Sealing Tanks are available. These tanks consist of a stainless steel inner tank and hinged bright stainless steel lid both of which are supported on a powder coated black steel frame.
The inner tank has 20mm thick high temperature thermal cladding between it and the supporting frame. The outside cladding is white polypropylene sheet attached to the outside of the supporting frame.
The front control panel houses an illuminated rocker switch and a digital temperature controller which is set to 98°C +/- 1°C. This temperature can be changed by the user if necessary.
The tank is also fitted with a low level cut out device to prevent it from being run if the liquid level falls below the top of the heater. A drain tap fitted to the bottom of the tank to enable it to be easily emptied.
Each tank is supplied with 5 basket holders.

Gedaseal solution needs to be added to the water used in the sealing
tank. It helps seal the panels and prevents excessive ingress of dye into the
sealing water. 'Seno' universal solvent is needed to remove the protective seal
and clean the fin-ished sealed panel. The solvent can also be used to thin the
Gedalu screen printing pastes.
