The KOOLGLIDE carpet seaming tools work by generating a safe electromagnetic field beneath the tool to cause the foil in the seam tape to heat, melting the adhesive. The PRO allows more user control to compensate for different installation conditions.
MODEL PRO – SETTINGS On the KOOLGLIDE PRO tool, the LOW setting is for normal carpet seaming at room temperature over a commercial carpet pad. The MEDIUM setting is for seaming over a thick seam board, or in cold room conditions. The HIGH setting is used for seaming carpet over bare concrete or to bond wood, ceramic, or vinyl base using the utility tape. When the PRO is set at the MEDIUM or HIGH setting, it adds 2 to 4 seconds to the activation cycle. That compensates for the heat loss caused by the bare concrete.
Using the PRO tool on the HIGH setting over pad may cause the tape to discolor on the edges or may melt sections of the pad.
