Kapton® Flexible Heating Element

The Kapton® flexible heating elements due to their small thickness (0,10÷0,15mm) can be easily fitted to different kind of metal surfaces and guarantee a fast and uniform heat transfer. The uniform thermal distribution of the heating allows to avoid abnormal thermal expansions and to manage all the power with the maximum efficiency.

The Kapton® insulation guarantees 260°C maximum working temperature. The high bond performance of the adhesive film allows an easy fixing on steel and plastic surfaces. The etched foil technology allows to design the flexible element according to the requests of the customer so it is possible to customize shape, dimensions, voltage and power. For this reason the Heatfor flex elements are suitable for a lot of different applications.
