Silicon And Aluminium Heater Mats Flexmat

FLEXMAT heating products range ensures uniform heat distribution. Aluminium heater mats are especially suitable for many different applications, thanks to their low thickness and their custom manufacturing. There are many possible options with silicon and aluminium heater mats to answer your needs.

Heating mats are manufactured to order and their sizes and shapes can be adapted to each situation. They can be fixed using eyelets or hooks incorporated into the heating mat and, in some cases, vulcanized directly by us onto your metal parts. The adhesive backing can also be provided. Other options such as double insulation, fuses, thermal cut-out devices, or temperature sensors (PT100, PT1000, thermocouple,…) are available.

The heating part is made up of a nickel-chrome or nickel-copper alloy heating wire wound in a spiral around a slender fiber glass core. This heating element is then placed between two layers of woven fiber glass impregnated with silicon elastomer. This material is an excellent electrical insulator (approx. 12 kV/mm), a good conductor of heat (7.10-4 W/ cm/K), and flexible. It can withstand continuous temperatures of around 200°C. The fiber glass weave endows the assembly with good mechanical resistance while allowing it to remain very flexible.
