Heating Elements for Medical Devices

Fast, Precise, and Portable Heating with Datec Thick Film

Datec thick film heating elements for medical devices are versatile and broadly compatible with most substrates. Our low processing temperature (under 400°C) allows our heating circuits to be deposited on materials like aluminum and other aluminum alloys with low melting temperatures.

Our patented thick film technology enables our engineers to create high-performance, reliable heating solutions for a wide range of applications in the medical industry.

Make it smaller, faster, more precise, and portable with thick film.

Not familiar with thick film? Here’s what you’re missing out on:

Rapid Heat-Up & Thermal Cycling

Get the fast, precise, and ultra-efficient heating you need, when you need it.

Very High Watt Density

Our patented sol-gel thick film technology has 2-10x the watt density of other heating elements, like Kapton.

Precise Temperature Control

Thick film heating elements reach the exact temperature you need quickly and repeatedly.

Even & Uniform Heating without Hotspots

Datec thick film heats consistently and evenly on aluminum, mica, glass, and steel.

Dependable heating with no hot or cold spots.

Low Energy Consumption

Thick film heating elements have low thermal mass and conserve energy without compromising performance.

Portable Applications

Compact and portable, thick film technology has low-voltage options as low as 3.7 volts.

Direct Bonding to Surface Saves Space

Our heating elements can be printed directly onto most substrates, saving space, materials, and cost.

Low Processing temperature

With a max processing temperature of 4000°C, our heating circuits can be deposited on materials with low melting temperatures, such as Aluminum.
