Silicone heater mats consist of heating wire or an etched heating foil, which is encapsulated and insulated between two silicone mats strengthened by textile glass fibers. They are suitable especially for applications requiring precise temperature and homogeneous heat distribution. Due to their low thermal mass they distinguish by quick response and an excellent controllability. Their low mass and small construction height (from 0,8 mm) make them interesting for many aerospace applications. Their resistance against moisture and humidity (IP 65) recommends them for laboratory equipment, catering appliances and frost or condensation protection especially of electronic components.
