IRONMATE® - cut your flat iron electrical consumption up to 53%, a diligent Filipino invention

Electric bills, water bills, phone bills, internet bills, credit card bills and all other bills are the main recipients of Filipinos' income at the end of the month. What’s left for an average income earners whose salaries are barely enough for the family’s food and everyday needs?

Cutting down these bills are necessary. If not to eliminate, at least reduction shall be done. In the case of electric bill, some people resort to cut their electrical consumption illegally especially those who are leaving in overpopulated areas. But what if we can do it legally without compromising a necessary household chore that needs electricity? Yes, there’s a way.

Electric iron is one of the appliances that consumes electricity a lot. A typical clothes iron has 1000-1800 wattage. To save electricity, a former teacher in Albay, Rodolfo B. Biescas, Sr. invented the IRONMATE®. Due to his love for the ordinary Pinoys, and believing that the Filipino is a creative persona and has strong global-standard that one can be the pride of Asia, he began inventing and innovating things that Filipinos may benefit. He believes that “Necessity is not the mother of all Inventions” because there are inventions that are not necessity like those that causes destruction. IRONMATE® was invented in 1988. Sir Biescas applied patent in 1990 and granted in 1991. 

The IRONMATE® is a device which automatically shuts off the electrical flow towards the flat iron when the iron is rested or not in use without losing the heat energy. It can save up to 50-53% of energy consumption and electricity cost. It is portable and made of fiber plastic crystals, with the stainless steel plate and a heat indicator at the rear side.

  • Timely energy saving & fire safety device for flat iron. 
  • Pay only what you actually consume in ironing clothes 
  • Multi-awarded Filipino invention 
  • Conserves heat and reduce electrical consumption by 50-53%. 
  • Controls built-in loss in ironing – electrical consumption automatically stops and heat conserved when the flat-iron presses the push button while rested on the IRONMATE® during frequent idle periods
