Foil Laminated Heating Elements
Foil heaters are ideal for low moisture applications that require a cost effective, reliable, robust, long lasting heat solution. Foil heaters conform to specific custom patterns for even or concentrated heat distribution within customer applications. Foil heaters can be used in temperature ranges below 600°F (316°C) while eliminating expensive and complicated bracket mounting. Foil laminated heaters typically contain a flexible fiberglass heating element laminated between two sheets of foil coated with a liner-backed adhesive. These adhesives are very aggressive and provide a strong initial bond, as well as a good ultimate bond. The aluminum foil helps produce more efficient heat transfer than heating elements that do not make complete surface contact.
