Kapton® Flexible Heaters- Specifications
Kapton® Flexible Heaters- Description
Kapton® flexible 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). Heaters are in stock 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. With low out gassing, these heaters are useful in vacuum environments. Etched foil heating elements, with 12” (305mm) long Kapton or Teflon® leads, are standard. Silicone leads, as well as custom lengths, cord and plug sets available.
Being transparent, Kapton® film also allows easy visual inspection on the internal structures. Pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) backing surface is standard, but NPH will customize your Kapton® heaters with special adhesives or mounting holes, as the application requires. Mechanical fasteners such as hooks, grommets, spring-loaded latches, snaps and Velcro® patches are also available. Minimum radius flexibility 1/32” (0.88mm) standard with weight of 1 1/2oz/ft² (0.05g/cm²).
