Elesa says that its MMT handles are 'cool' in that they are stylish, practical and functional – particularly in applications where high-temperature equipment requires manual operation. The MMT, by virtue of its internal aeration channels and technopolymer insulation, provides a significant thermal break and a relatively cool handle. Elesa's MMT is therefore suited to use on ovens and other machinery running at high temperatures.
Laboratory tests on the MMT show a thermal gradient of 110degC reduction from the mounting surface to the thermoplastic handle, enabling otherwise scalding hot material to be manipulated at comfortable hand temperatures. Further information on Elesa products may be found at www.elesa.co.uk.
