Flexible Heaters

Flexible heaters are often utilized by design engineers because their application requires even heat distribution in a very specific area. Etched foil flexible heaters are also used in applications where surface mount heat is required due to physical constraints. Custom shapes, buildups, multiple circuits, shaded watt densities and thicknesses allow for flexible heaters to be fully customized meeting the exact requirements of any application while offering a robust product which will stand the test of time. Birk's flexible heating element(s) are made using materials such as silicone rubber, KaptonŽ, mica and butyl. Birk's KaptonŽ flexible heaters are thin flexible heaters, which are highly customizable and allow for rapid thermal recovery. Each material has its own features and benefits while all of them provide great temperature ranges. Depending on your application requirements specific materials can be utilized to resist chemicals, UV rays, and moisture.

There are many ways to achieve temperature control in addition to flexible heaters. Being one of the leading flexible heater suppliers, Birk can incorporate sensors, controllers and thermostats directly into the heater to provide customers a full turn-key solution while ensuring stability in critical applications.
