EXPOL Hot Wire Polystyrene Tuff Pod and GeoFoam EX1300 cutters are a portable solution for cutting polystyrene on building sites. Rather than using a hand saw that creates mess and can be detrimental to the environment the EX1300 allows the user to achieve accurate and clean cuts through polystyrene leaving little or no mess.

The EX1300 easily cuts Tuff Pods and GeoFoam to different sizes and enables you to cut channels and groves through the Tuff Pods and GeoFoam to accommodate plumbing services.

Model: EX1300 Transformer

The EX1300 transformer has been designed to heat a hot wire at a specific length of 1300mm from terminal to terminal. Only EX CC 0.7mmc copper coated cutting wire can be used with this transformer.

The use of unsuitable cutting wire may cause damage to the transformer.
Order EX CC 0.7mm cutting wire from EXPOL as required.
