Birk Manufacturing has increased its product offering by introducing a new line of thin-film high temperature (HT) flexible heaters. These high-performance heating elements are capable of operating at temperatures up to 300°C. Their lightweight, low mass design allows for very fast heat-up times.
Birk’s HT heaters utilize a unique “all-polyimide” design which, after processing, forms a one-piece laminate instead of relying on a dielectric/adhesive composite. This heating element offers a noted improvement over traditional polyimide heaters, which are only capable of temperatures up to 260°C. These HT heaters are an ideal solution for demanding applications where other heating elements would fail.
Like all of Birk’s heating products, our HT heaters can be fully customized to incorporate cutouts, stiffeners, and multiple layers. We can also integrate and recommend temperature sensors and thermal switches for direct heater control.
HT heaters have a higher thermal expansion rate than most traditional polyimide heaters, creating a need for a superior bond to then receive the superior heat transfer. Our state-of-the-art bonding process allows us to create the custom solution and then directly bond it to either an engineered part or customer-supplied material.
