To cover the wings of your glider, a heat iron can be used. Mini heat irons work best with variable heat adjustment. Few brand names to choose from that may be purchased from ebay or amazon are:
Clover Mini iron ii
Mini plancha para patch
Mini-Bügeleisen MB-3415
Ming Yang sealing tool
Large heat iron/sealing iron will work as well, make sure to use low heat. Both irons must have cloth sock on head to prevent iron from sticking to lamination film. Regular cotton sock can be used.
For smaller projects, it is best to use a heat iron with a smaller head such as shown on the left. Although bigger heat iron can be used for smaller applications, we recommend the smaller head.
