>> IHP supply silicone heaters for a multitude of applications including industrial catering, battery warming, environmental control or electronics particularly telecommunications, composite repair of aircraft, laboratory equipment, satellite dish snow melting, anti-condensation and GRP pipe curing systems.
The uses for silicone heater mats are infinite as they can suit any application requiring surface heating up to +230°C. Their suitability for arduous conditions has been proven in applications from polar expedition to space exploration.
Using evenly spaced resistance wires laminated between sheets of silicone, wire wound mats are ideal for prototyping or problem solving applications. Manufactured to customer specifications they can be made in a limitless range of shapes and sizes. High flexibility can be obtained using tough, robust materials which are finding ever increasing applications in industries.
Computer designed chemically etched foil tracks are laminated between thin sheets of silicone to give precise even heating. Suitable for both low and high volume production etched foil heaters have rapid heat up properties with precise temperature control. Available in a limitless range to customer specification etch foil heaters provide heating solutions in a multiple of industries.
