Polyimide Heaters

Polyimide Light Weight Heaters

Polymide Heaters-

Polyimide Flexible Heaters offer ideal heating solutions for applications where low out-gassing, high dielectric strength and or integrated sensing technologies are required. Our Polyimide Heaters offer exceptional tensile strength and tear resistance, and are a good choice in medical, aerospace and analytical applications. Polyimide is an organic polymer with high dielectric strength, while providing excellent resistance to most solvents, oils, and even radiation.   Like all of our heaters our field engineers can design and fabricate a thermal solution to fit your specific application.
