Silicon Rubber Heater
Famously known as “flexible heaters”, silicone rubber heaters are composed of fiberglass reinforced silicone rubbers that are rugged, moisture and chemical resistant, flame retardant, have high dielectric strength and are non toxic. Wire or etched foil heating circuits are positioned between two “wafers” of silicone which provides flexibility and strength. Design versatility permits zones of higher or lower heat concentration as needed. They are capable of flexing and will conform to contoured surfaces. They can also be preformed to complex shapes and can withstand mechanical shock and vibration. Designed to meet the requirements of various low and medium temperature applications, they improve heat transfer; speed warm ups, and decrease wattage requirements. The silicone Fiberglass-reinforced silicone rubber gives the heater dimensional stability without sacrificing flexibility. Thermostats or RTDs can be mounted for temperature control. Teflon lead wires can exit any location to make suitable connections. Different mounting methods such as pressure sensitive adhesive, field applied adhesive, Velcro etc. are available according to the requirement.
