Flexible heating solutions from Acal BFi

We offer a comprehensive range of silicon rubber heating solutions from leading manufacturers. With over 20 years of experience in both 2D and 3D environments, we can design and manufacture heater mats in all shapes and sizes, customising them to your specific needs.

Types of heating mat

Our capabilities are endless. We work with numerous forms of heating mat, which enables us to recommend the best solution for your requirements. The two key heater mat technologies are wire wound and etch foil. Both of these technologies are encased in silicone rubber, which responds quickly to temperature changes and has excellent electrical insulation. Other types include Kapton, pre-formed and polyester.

Difference between foil and wire

Wire wound heaters are often used for prototyping and problem solving during the design process, using evenly spaced resistance wires to produce reliable and constant temperatures. A wire wound element uses a round resistance wire and it is ideally suited for small quantities and low-cost samples. Wire wound heaters are also ideally suited for dynamic applications.

Etch foil uses chemically etched foil tracks which are designed by a computer. These tracks are laminated between silicone sheets and offer precise temperature control and rapid heating. It is largely used in static applications with a maximum size of 600mm x 2500mm. Both wire wound and etch foil technologies are available in any size and shape, and are tested for temperature tolerance from -60°C to 220°C.

 

Heating mat applications

Available in varying thicknesses, from 0.7mm to 3mm, these heaters are extremely useful across a range of industries, including automotive, aerospace, medical equipment, military applications, and scientific instruments. Wherever controllable heating is required, heating mats can help. Approvals available include UL and VDE.

Acal BFi engineering and support

The flexible heating mats we supply are highly customisable. Several mats can be fitted inside a single jacket, allowing varying temperatures to be applied constantly and reliably to different sections of your design.

  • We can help you with the sourcing and design of your heating mat
  • We can supply products to you at any point in your project
  • We can integrate your heating mat into a full enclosure or with our other components such as temperature sensors, specialist cable assemblies, and connectors to create a full-service solution
  • We offer flexible logistics solutions from our UK warehouse
