fork seal change

I need to change both fork seals in my Perimeter valve B 17 forks by American Suspension and in there on line pictures in step 14 it looks like they have a heat gun. What are they doing? Don't understand that plastic baggy thing in step 49 neither. Any other tips for when changing the seals or step by step wording to go with the pictures.

They use the plastic baggy over the ends of the tubes to help prevent cutting the seals edge when slipping the seal on. Got no idea about the heat gun.

There's blue loctite on the threads. I'm guessing the heat is used to help loosen the bond and expand the outer tube's diameter a hair.
If you call them, will they give you a brief explanation of the questionable steps?
