flexible kapton heater
Highlights of Kapton Heater
- Kapton heater is also known as polyimide foil heater.
- Kapton is a product of DuPont.
- The etched foil are used as the heating element and they are encapsulated between two layers of kapton films.
- The etched foils are manufactured by chemically etching a resistive circuit in nichel alloy foils.
- The Kapton films utilize a Teflon FEP adhesive or acrylic adhesive to bond together.
- As an insulation material, the kapton film are semitransparent, ultra-thin and ultra-flexible.
- Due to its special construction and properties, kapton heaters are widely used in aerospace, aircraft industry, semiconductor processing, medical, food machinery and etc.
- With low outgassing, they are also used in vacuum environments.
- They can endure radiation, vibration and fungus.
- Panshine’s Kapton heaters offer superb tensile strength, dimensional stability and tear resistance.
- Due to their low thermal mass and design features, these heaters respond fast to temperature change and have fast heat-up and cooling-down characteristics.
- Panshine’s heaters are suitable for applications where precise heating and temperature control are required.
