Multiple Patents and Designs to Meet Customer Demands
Your unique manufacturing needs are met with high-tech solutions using substrates that integrate seamlessly into your products. The major thick film heater elements that we manufacture include:
- IntegrAl® – Aluminum substrate
- Mica-TF® – Mica substrate
- Glass-TF – Ceramic glass substrate
- Stainless Steel TF – Stainless steel substrate
We collaborate with clients to create and build bespoke heaters based on their unique demands. If needed, our team can make prototypes in as little as 2-3 weeks to meet the demanding project schedule of our clients.
Our heating elements are engineered and manufactured at our facility in North America. This ensures efficient communication and short production lead times for our customers.
Benefits of Using Thick Film Heating Elements
Datec’s thick film heating elements offer numerous benefits when used in thermal applications. A few of the many advantages include:
- Custom heat zones on the substrate to allow targeted heating.
- Rapid heat up and cool down thanks to high watt density designs and low thermal mass enabling significant energy conservation opportunities
- Saves space as the heating element is printed directly on the substrate
- Precision heat controls with temperature options of up to 800 °F.
- Low leakage current enabled by excellent dielectric properties
- Uniform temperature distribution assisted by Datec’s unique block resistor technology.
