Custom Made Silicone Heaters
Advantages of Flexible Silicone Rubber Heaters
Silicone rubber is ideally suited for the production of flexible heater mats with it’s low thermal mass, superb electrical insulation properties and robust construction. It allows high power densities and offers fast response to temperature control. With silicone’s wide temperature tolerance of –60°C to 230°C as well as being thin and lightweight it has distinct advantages over other forms of heating. Where direct, precise and intimate heating is required silicone heaters are the ideal solution.
Wire Wound Silicone Flexible Heaters are generally suited to low volume applications or applications which require a flexible yet robust heating element. Our silicone heaters are used in countless applications but Wire Wound Flexible Heaters have been regularly used for the following purposes; industrial catering, anti condensation, environmental control, composite repair of aircraft, GRP pipe curing and snow melting to name just a few. If you're not sure if a Wire Wound Flexible Heater would suit your requirements then please contact one of our technical support team who would be only too happy to advise you.
We can offer a variety of fixing methods and thermal control options.
