Polyimide (Kapton™) is a semitransparent, flexible, thin material, ideally suited for the manufacture of etch foil heater mats. With its low thermal mass, superb electrical insulating properties and excellent resistance to most chemicals, it allows high power densities with fast and efficient thermal transfer. Being thin and lightweight with a wide temperature range kapton (polyimide) flexible heaters have a distinct advantage over other forms of heating elements. Where fast response, chemical resistance and a low profile is required kapton (polyimide) flexible heaters offer the ideal solution.

Silicone Rubber Heaters

Silicone rubber heaters consist of many layers of silicone rubber sheets that are bonded together through heat and high pressure. A fiberglass grid (which is visible on the surface) reinforces the silicone rubber sheets. It is possible to make the surface of the heaters smooth (i.e. make the grid invisible) by covering the fiberglass with a thin layer of silicone. A uniformly spiraled resistance wire web that covers the entire surface of the heater is embedded within the layers of silicone rubber. This web could be designed such that holes and cut-outs are incorporated on the heater. When silicone rubber heaters are made with a pressure sensitive adhesive backing, a thin layer of aluminum is added prior to the adhesive layer, in order to improve heat transfer and maintain its uniformity. This construction makes silicone rubber heaters an ideal solution to the requirements of many low and medium temperature applications, which do not conform to the standard shapes, sizes and dimensions of band, strip, cartridge, tubular and coil heaters.

Silicone Rubber Heaters-Attachment Methods

When flexible silicone rubber heaters must be attached on cylindrical and other parts, various attachment methods are used. Various techniques routinely used with leather goods can be used on flexible surface heaters. These would include: Boot Hooks, Grommets, Snap Fasteners, Boot Hooks and Lacing Cord, Velcro - Hooks and Loops, Boot Hooks and Springs, D-Rings and Straps.

In addition these, other methods are also used for temporary and permanent installations:

 

 

      Pressure Sensitive Adhesive Back (PSA)

      Factory Vulcanizing

      High Temperature Aluminum or Fiberglass Adhesive Tape

       Magnetic Mounting

      Field Applied (RTV) Adhesive

      Clamping or compression between two rigid materials

Silicone Rubber- Enclosure Heaters

NPH silicone rubber enclosure heaters are designed for easy installation and safe operation. These rectangular-shaped wire wound silicone rubber heaters are vulcanized to an aluminum mounting plate with mounting holes. They provide superior protection for enclosures of all types against condensation, humidity and freezing.

It is recommended that the enclosure heater be used with a thermostat either built-in or mounted remotely to limit the maximum temperature reached and conserve energy.

 

 

Silicone Rubber Heaters-Accessories

 

Temperature Sensors and Switches for Silicone Rubber Heaters:

NPH silicone heaters can be supplied with factory fitted sensors and switches to suit all types of instrumentation. Available from stock are PT100’s, J, K and T type thermocouples, bi-metal thermostats and thermal fuses. We also fit customer specified thermistors and other resistance temperature devices as well as extruded pockets for customers to fit their own sensors. Separate mechanical or digital thermostats can be supplied for process control.

 

Specialist Materials and Approvals:

As well as the large variety of stocked silicone materials available, NPH can manufacture heaters in specialist silicones to customer requirement such as colour, thickness and Low Smoke/Low Toxicity. We are certified to manufacture silicone heater mats with UL, CSA or VDE approval, which simplifies full approval for the finished assembly.

 

Supply Cable and Connectors:

NPH standard termination is via single leads or multi-core silicone cables. These can be terminated with connectors by major manufacturers such as Amp and Molex. Other types of cable as well as spiral wrap and heatshrink sleevings are available on request.

 

Integral Foam Insulation:

To provide higher efficiency during heating, NPH flexible silicone heater mats can be thermally insulated with a closed cell silicone foam insulation vulcanized to one face. Many thicknesses are available from stock, as well as specialist types such as flame retardant that can be supplied on request.
