Virtually every heater or flexible circuit we make is the successful answer to a customer's problem!
Kapton® Insulated Flexible Heaters are offered in a virtually unlimited range of shapes, sizes and wattage's. Their thin design (0.005" thick), allows close thermal contact with the heat sink for maximum heating efficiency, and also permits close adaptation to the contours of your part. They can be coiled, twisted, accordion folded, bent around corners, or simply pre-formed to fit the contours of any part.
They are lightweight, transparent, tough, and ideal for extremely precise applications in satellites, spacecraft and portable instruments. Their flat etched foil elements cover more area and transfer heat more efficiently than wire wound designs. This allows faster warm-ups and quicker response; and since the elements run cooler, longer life as well. They also operate safely at much higher wattage's than wire wound units.
spaced heating elements do not always provide uniform temperatures
across a given area, so the elements can be patterned to provide
greater heat in areas where the configuration of the component
tends to prevent uniform heating. Similarly, elements can be
spaced or arranged to produce less heat in the areas where
that may be desirable.
The Kapton® insulation is dimensionally stable, self-extinguishing, and highly resistant to oils, chemicals, fungus, solvents and radiation. It is easy to clean and sterilize in medical uses, and produces minimal outgassing in high vacuum environments. It is ideal for service in harsh environments.
offer precise heating,
minimum weight and excellent durability.
heaters can be installed with a wide variety of adhesives and
fasteners. We can also factory-mount them to mating parts.
Thermostats and other sensors may be integrated into the design
for accurate control and temperature tracking.

|LEADS: Standard leads are copper wire coated with tin and insulated with Teflon? and can be attached virtually anywhere on the heater. Custom leads, in various lengths, can be insulated with neoprene or silicone to seal out moisture.||ADHESIVES: A broad choice, including pressure-sensitive backing or strips; epoxies, silicones, cements, etc. Special adhesives are available for field application, as well as mechanical fasteners, including snaps, lacing cords, Velcro, etc. We also factory-vulcanize to your parts. Our engineers will help you select the optimum choice.||THERMOSTATS, SENSORS & THERMISTORS: Your choice is virtually unlimited. Our engineers will help you in the selection and location of the ideal controls for your application.|
