Ultra-Thin Flexible Heaters

Ultra-Thin Flexible Heaters from Pelonis Technologies provide higher thermal stability over a wide range of temperatures due to their excellent physical and electrical properties.

Ultra-Thin Flexible Heaters meet the required specifications for use industries with applications operating at critical temperatures ranging from -200° C to 210° C. These versatile heating components feature superior thermal properties and their easy installation process makes them ideal for smaller applications.

Uniform Heating with Superior Thermal Properties

Ultra-Thin Flexible Heaters' thin construction and low mass designs allow heat to transfer more efficiently than foil imprinted heaters. Uniform part temperatures are assured by matching power.

Quick Heat-up

Ultra-Thin Flexible Heaters' built-in nano technology heating elements create strong bonding, making them more flexible than typical flexible heaters. This allows heat to transfer more efficiently and evenly than foil imprinted heaters. Ultra-Thin Flexible Heaters' high temperature capability allows higher wattage for faster heat-up and warm-up time.

Lower EMF

Unlike heaters with printed or wired circuits, Ultra-Thin Flexible Heaters DO NOT produce high EMF or cause cracks and breakages of the internal heater conductor when bent which is the main cause of most heater failures.

Great Performance & Reliability

Ultra-Thin Flexible Heaters offer excellent performance even under critical operating temperatures from as low as -200°C and can safely operate up to 210°C (higher temperatures depend on the application). For applications below -40°C, a clamping plate should be installed over the heater so that its structure will not be affected by the change in adhesive properties under cold conditions.

Light & Space Saving

The thickness of Ultra-Thin Flexible Heaters is less than 0.22mm (0.0087 inches) and each typically weighs only 0.04 g/cm2 (0.009oz/in2). They are ideal heaters for applications with limited space such as defense electronics, aircraft, portable medical instruments, laboratory research, optical & photographic equipment, LCD displays, computer equipment, high density electronic devices, automotive applications, and many more.

Easy Installation

Ultra-Thin Flexible Heaters are easy to install. Simply remove the back adhesive and apply to the surface of the item to be heated. For high wattage density, use a pressure plate to fix the heater in place. Ultra-Thin Flexible Heaters do not have abrupt protruding lead-out areas, hence they allow the pressure plates to fully cover the heaters without having to cut or trim the clamping metal to incorporate the lead-out area.

Applications For Ultra-Thin Flexible Heaters

Ultra-Thin Flexible Heaters can be made with complex shapes and geometries. Cut-out holes and notches can also be designed in to meet exact application specifications. A single Ultra-Thin Flexible Heater can also be designed with multiple heating areas or multiple watt densities.

Ultra-Thin Flexible Heaters can be used in a variety of applications, including:

  • Protection from freezing of outdoor devices
  • Condensation prevention of equipment
  • Dehumidification of Motors and Control Devices
  • Aircraft Equipment
  • Battery Heating
  • Lab simulation and testing
  • Outdoor ATM or camera enclosure heating
  • Small, compact home appliances
  • LCD displays
  • Optical/Photographic equipment
  • Computer equipment (IC chips/PC Boards)
  • Satellite and communication equipment
  • Seat heater/pet warmer/heating pads
  • Food trays and food display shelving
  • Lab simulation and testing
  • Medical and Laboratory equipment and Instruments (eg. blood analyzer combined with our high precision temperature controller to control the temperature at +/-0.1°C)

Benefits of Flexible Heaters

Ultra-Thin Flexible Heaters are long-lasting and will endure severe applications even under intense critical operating temperatures. Ultra-Thin Flexible Heaters do not produce high EMF like traditional heaters with printed or wired circuits. When bent, they do not crack or break the internal heater conductor, which is the leading cause of most heater failures. Ultra-Thin Flexible Heaters are also corrosion-resistant, which helps them withstand harsher applications.

Their small, lightweight, flexible design adds to their versatility. The Ultra-Thin Flexible Heater is less than 0.22 mm in thickness, and typically weighs about 0.04 grams per square centimeter. Because of their flexibility, they conform to the shape of most surfaces, making them ideal for situations that require the heater to be bent around a minute curve or across abutting sections.

Ultra-Thin Flexible Heaters will conform to complex shapes and geometries and cut-out holes and notches can be designed to meet the exact needs of almost any application. A unique Ultra-Thin Flexible Heater can also be designed with multiple heating areas or numerous watt densities.

Flexible heaters use a simple and easy installation process. The heater is installed simply by removing the adhesive backing and applying the Pelonis Ultra-Thin Flexible Heater to the desired substrate. The ultra-thin design also allows a pressure plate to cover the heater entirely without modifying the plate or clamping metal.

These features make Ultra-Thin Flexible Heaters ideal for limited space applications, such as:

  • Defense electronics
  • Portable medical instruments
  • Laboratory research
  • Optical and photographic equipment
  • Computer equipment
  • High-density electronic devices
  • Automotive applications

Outstanding thermal stability and durability mean that there is less equipment downtime. Flexible heaters are cost-effective, lasting longer than traditional heaters to keep maintenance and replacement costs to a minimum.

Flexible Heater Capabilities

Flexible heaters fit the surface that requires heating, enabling them to transfer heat more efficiently than foil-imprinted heaters. The built-in nanotechnology heating elements produce powerful bonding, making them more adaptable than typical flexible heaters. Nanotechnology ultimately improves the efficiency of Ultra-Thin Flexible Heaters, and high-temperature capacity facilitates higher wattage for quicker heat-up and warm-up times.

With Pelonis' patented Micro Temperature Controller, Ultra-Thin Flexible Heaters can maintain precise temperatures within plus or minus 0.1° C, making them ideal for critical applications such as medical or lab use.

Ultra-Thin Flexible Heaters work with major temperature sensors, thermostats, and temperature control products, providing precise temperature control capabilities. Additional temperature control products include digital and four-phase timers, which offer further control for extremely precise use cases.
