Thin and Lightweight

Polyimide heaters can be designed to thicknesses of less than 0.01" (0.025 mm) and weigh less than a gram per square inch.

Wide Temperature Range

With an operating temperature range from -150F to +400F (-100C to +200C), polyimide Kapton heaters are suitable for use from extreme cold to extreme hot conditions.


Low Outgassing

Used in many vacuum and aerospace applications, polyimide heaters exhibit low outgassing of volatile materials under vacuum or at higher temperatures.
