Flexible Heaters of Silicone Rubber, Kapton and etched foil for engineered thermal requirements. Custom shapes and termination configurations built to suit. Rapid prototype service available.

Silicone Rubber Heaters
Silicone rubber heaters permit composite bonding and curing , as well as freeze protection, condensation prevention, and various repair and fabrication operations in many industries. Equal length circuits and a "cool tab" are provided, while a fiberglass reinforced heater cover means long service life and superior durability. Silicone rubber heaters can be easily bonded to heat sinks and other parts.

Kapton® Heaters
Kapton® Heaters offer superior tensile strength and tear resistance, with precision heat distribution. They are ideal for extreme temperature environments, from -319°F to +392°F (-195°C to +200°C). Kapton® Flexible Heaters standard at 0.0007” (0.2mm) thick and up to 20”x26” (.508m x .660m) areas. Watt density is 5W/in² (0.8W/cm²) standard, with units available to 50W/in² (7.8W/cm²). Kapton® is an organic polymer with very high dielectric capabilities, while providing superior resistance to most solvents, oils, even radiation.

Polyimide Heaters and Integrated Assemblies
Polyimide Heaters and Integrated Assemblies are a thermal solution for applications requiring precision temperature profiles. By supplying a thermal assembly that has been optimized for an application, we can assure that part-to-part performance will meet the clinical diagnostics equipment specifications. Polyimide heater solutions are commonly used in PCR thermal cycler, lab-on-a-chip and other applications.
  • Process temperature 200°C (392°F)
  • Kapton® or silicone rubber materials
  • Moisture and chemical-resistant
  • UL recognition

Silicone Rubber Heater Assemblies
Silicone Rubber Heater Assemblies with integrated RTD sensors are the preferred solution for many medical applications including IV fluid delivery, respiratory therapy medications and gases, and for patient comfort during MRI imaging procedures. By heating fluids and gases to 37°C (98.6°F) the likelihood of hypothermia is reduced and patient comfort is enhanced.
  • 220°C (428°F) process temperature
  • Watt density to 50 W/in2 (7.5 W/cm2)
  • Maximum voltage: 600V~(ac)
  • ru2.jpg recognized
  • Vulcanizing, adhesive or mechanical bonding

Gas Delivery and Pump Line Heaters
Our Gas and Pump Line heaters are turnkey thermal solutions used in PECVD, LPCVD, plasma etch and other vacuum applications. Low vapor pressure gas delivery lines need to be held at a temperature higher than the gas vaporization point in order to prevent condensation that will affect process yields. Vacuum exhaust lines remove the vapor phase bi-products from the semiconductor process. Sublimation occurs when the vapor phase materials cool in a vacuum line. By heating the forelines, vacuum lines, and vacuum pumps, sublimation of ammonium chloride (AICI2), nitrides (NH4) (NH4CI) and other potential hazardous materials can be substantially reduced.
System and Process Safety
  • Reducing effluence buildup in lines decreases potential for exposure to hazardous materials during preventative maintenance (PM) cycles.
  • System components meet UL, CE, and SEMI S2 and other agency safety specifications.
  • Insulation system is designed to meet SEMI S2 surface temperature requirements.
Features and Benefits
  • Process Temperatures to 200°C
  • Elevates gas and vapor temperature above vapor condensation or sublimation phase.
  • Designed with clean room compatible silicone rubber and distributed wattage, a uniform temperature can be achieved.
