Highlights of Kapton Heater

  • Kapton heater is also known as polyimide foil heater.
  • Kapton is a product of DuPont.
  • The etched foil are used as the heating element and they are encapsulated between two layers of kapton films.
  • The etched foils are manufactured by chemically etching a resistive circuit in nichel alloy foils.
  • The Kapton films utilize a Teflon FEP adhesive or acrylic adhesive to bond together.
  • As an insulation material, the kapton film are semitransparent, ultra-thin and ultra-flexible.
  • Due to its special construction and properties, kapton heaters are widely used in aerospace, aircraft industry, semiconductor processing, medical, food machinery and etc.
  • With low outgassing, they are also used in vacuum environments.
  • They can endure radiation, vibration and fungus.
  • Fullchance's Kapton heaters offer superb tensile strength, dimensional stability and tear resistance.
  • Due to their low thermal mass and design features, these heaters respond fast to temperature change and have fast heat-up and cooling-down characteristics.
  • Fullchance's heaters are suitable for applications where precise heating and temperature control are required.
