Polyimide Heaters

When to Use
  • When you need a low profile that can’t fit within component clearances or between features, not forcing changes in the overall package design
  • When high thermal control is desired in the thinnest construction possible
  • In applications where a tight bend radius is required
  • When weight constraints are a factor
  • When heater will be exposed to solvents that may deteriorate it
  • Polyimide is excellent for low outgassing applications
  • All Flex can provide assembly options for heaters in-house
  • Thinnest profile option, between .0045″ – .010″
  • Standard polyimide heaters can peak at 300°F/150C, can go higher for short periods
  • Reliable conformance to curved and irregular surfaces, with the ability to wrap as tight as .25″ radius
  • Improved thermal transfer compared to silicone rubber and offers a quicker response on thermal delivery to the surrounding mass
  • Better chemical resistance from solvents
  • No oil residue is emitted, making them cleaner than silicone rubber heaters
  • Can be added later in the design process due to the thinness of the heater
