Semi-transparent, flexible and extremely thin with excellent dielectric strength, Polyimide (Kapton™) film is ideally suited for the manufacture of etched foil heaters, hence the name Kapton heater.
Kapton heaters have low thermal mass and excellent resistance to most chemicals, and allow high power densities(8w/cm2) with fast and efficient thermal transfer. Where fast response, chemical resistance is required or applications with space and weight limitations such as as satellites and aerospace equipment, kapton heaters offer the ideal solution.
Kapton heaters can also be exposed to vacuum with low out gassing and to radiation. Read More about Custom Heating Solutions.
