Hi-Heat Industries custom designs etched foil Kapton®/polyimide heaters in an unlimited range of sizes, shapes, and wattages.
Kapton heaters have a thin, lightweight design --0.005" thick-- which allows close thermal contact for maximum heating efficiency, and permits close adaptation to the contours of the part.
These low thermal mass heaters have a quick response. Polyimide’s properties and the moisture resistant construction make these heating elements the preferable product in high humidity areas, wash down zones and in applications requiring repeated sterilizations.
Hi-Heat Industries designs these heaters with distributed wattages, eliminating edge loss compensation. Superior heat transfer and exceptionally uniform heat output result in a faster warm-up cycle and longer life.
Polyimide has more than 40 years of proven performance as the flexible material of choice in applications involving high, 200°C (392°F), and very low, -195°C (-319°F), temperatures. Kapton is a lightweight flexible film that maintains outstanding mechanical, chemical and electrical properties over extreme temperature ranges.
