Kapton (Polyimide) Flexible Heaters
Polyimide (Kapton™) is a semitransparent, flexible, thin material, ideally suited for the manufacture of etch foil heater mats. With its low thermal mass, superb electrical insulating properties and excellent resistance to most chemicals, it allows high power densities with fast and efficient thermal transfer. Being thin and lightweight with a wide temperature range kapton polyimide flexible heater circuits have distinct advantages over other forms of heating elements. Where fast response, chemical resistance and a low profile is required kapton (polyimide) flexible heaters offer the ideal solution.
Kapton and silicone rubber heaters are extremely versatile and operate efficiently in many environments. Some distinct advantages of kapton and silicone rubber heaters are:
Oil and solvent resistance
Extremely thin profiles
Conform to almost any shape
