Hot Air Pen Set

Hot Aipr Pen with stand, additional nozzles and control box

The Hot Air Pen is purpose designed and manufactured by Willard to provide a highly controllable source of heat over a small treatment area without contact on the object, which minimises the risk of dislodgement of poorly adhered particles.

The highly controllable source of heat is directed over a small treatment area which can be closely observed and managed. The Hot Air Pen quickly and safely heats the surface with point accuracy and without contact on the object, and at controlled low air flow settings. This minimises the risk of dislodgement of poorly adhered particles.
