Our unique thick-film heater element is printed directly onto mica resulting in a thin, lightweight, low-profile, precise and uniform heating solution. The mica-TF® heaters can be attached to a surface to act as an efficient conductive heater or mounted as an effective radiant heater.
Mica solutions are featured in food warming & cooking, and holding devices, enclosure heaters, radiant comfort heaters, LCD warmers and specialty industrial applications.
Our mica-TF® technology is comprised of resistive and conductive thick film paste that we screen-print directly on mica to create an advanced thermal component.
The thick film heating element is printed directly onto mica, producing reliable, uniform, cost-effective heating solutions.
With Datec’s heating elements printed directly on to mica, the mica-TF® provides:
- UNIFORM INTEGRATED HEAT
The resistor circuit covers a complete area resulting in even heating.
- COST SAVINGS
With reduced parts count and ease of installation, mica-TF® is a cost-effective heating solution.
- HIGH PERFORMANCE
Testing along with thousands of heaters installed proves mica-TF® has excellent thermal performance and reliability.
- TEMPERATURE CONTROL
The ability to maintain precise and constant temperatures.
- Food Warming Devices
- Enclosure Heaters
- Radiant Comfort Heaters
- LCD Warmers
- Industrial Applications
The key technology in the mica-TF® heater is thick-film layers, which incorporate Datec’s patented sol-gel technology.
