Northeast Flex Polyimide Heaters
Northeast Flex polyimide heaters are manufactured from chemically etched resistive foils. The etched circuit design pattern is bonded between two layers of polyimide heater insulating materials.
Northeast Flex can fabricate your heaters to a multitude of shapes, sizes and wattage. Polyimide heaters are thin and light weight with excellent dielectric strength. Polyimide heaters are preferred for applications where space, weight, and low out gassing limitations exist.
Northeast Flex designs all polyimide heaters with uniformly distributed wattage, eliminating the need for edge loss compensation. NEF also provides a wide variety of control methods to manage and monitor your application. Polyimide heaters can be supplied with thermistors, thermostats, thermal fuses, heat sinks and thermocouples. NEF will assemble the polyimide heater into your application through the use of pressure sensitive adhesives or epoxies. Mechanical fasteners are also available in the form of clamps, ties, springs, snaps or belts.
