Silicone Rubber Flexible Heaters

Flexible Silicone Rubber HeaterWATLOW Silicone Rubber Heaters

Rugged, yet thin, lightweight and flexible—the use of Watlow® silicone rubber heaters is limited only by the imagination. With these heaters, heat can be placed where it is needed. In the application process these heaters improve heat transfer, speed warm ups and decrease wattage requirements.

Fiberglass-reinforced silicone rubber gives the heater dimensional stability without sacrificing flexibility. Because very little material separates the element from the part, heat transfer is rapid and efficient. The heaters are constructed with a wire-wound element or an etched foil element. The heater construction creates a very thin heater allowing it to fit applications where space is limited.

Performance Capabilities
