Datec Thick Film Technology

Datec’s patented sol-gel thick film heating paste extends the capabilities of traditional thick film heaters.

Rapid Heat-Up and Thermal Cycling

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


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

Dependable heating with no hot or cold spots.

Uniform Temperature Precision

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

Low Profile Saves Space

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

Energy Consumption

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

Low Processing temperature

With a max processing temperature of 400°C, our heating circuits can be deposited on materials with low melting temperatures, such as Aluminum.


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

High Voltage Applications

With high-voltage capability up to 800 volts, Datec thick film technology is a versatile heating solution.

Portable Applications

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

Dual Voltage Applications

Datec thick film heaters can be designed to be dual voltage capable, with 110V/220V dual voltage capabilities in one heater.

Datec Thick Film Elements Can Be Printed Directly on Substrates

Other Substrates


alumina, aluminum nitride, and quartz

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

The heater microstructure of our heating elements is also inherently flexible, allowing heaters to be deposited on substrates with high CTE (Coefficient of Thermal Expansion).
