ZyFuse Tactile Image Heater


The Zyfuse Heater is an innovative piece of technology which is used in conjunction with Zytex2 paper to produce tactile diagrams. 

The printed diagram is passed through the Zyfuse which causes the black ink to swell and form the end product of a diagram which can be examined using the hands.

ZyTex2 Swell Paper

Zytex2 Swell Paper is a specialist paper onto which images can be printed and made into tactile diagrams. 

Use a printer, photocopier or Zymarker pen to print images, Braille or text onto the Zytex2 Swell Paper. 

When the paper is heated using one of our Zyfuse heating machines, the black parts of the image swell up to become tactile. 

This means that the finished product is a diagram which can be interpreted using touch.

  • Safe to use with inkjets, lasers, copiers and pen
  • Stays flat, doesn't curl
  • Long life, durable surface
  • Easy to use and cost effective
