All-Polyimide (AP) Heating Film (AP-003)
Overview AP heating film is a high performance alternative to our standard polyimide heating films, allowing higher temperatures and watt densities. Our unique ability to manufacture these heating films has prompted success in many high-temperature applications worldwide. AP heating film must be factory mounted or clamped to heat sinks, and are only available as custom designs.
Benefits of All-Polyimide Heaters 1. Thin, lightweight heaters allow you to apply heat where it's needed ultimately reducing overall operating costs 2. Etched-foil heating technology provides efficient thermal cycling of samples for increased throughput 3. Low mass construction and factory lamination saves space and reduces cycle time 4. Custom profiling offers uniform thermal performance of heating output for improved processing yields and productivity 5. Maximum operating temperature of 260° C offers a higher temperature range than any other flexible film heater for maximum design flexibility 6. Turnkey assembly solutions can drastically reduce assembly time and provide lowest total cost of operation
Features of All-Polyimide Heaters: 1. Available in round, rectangular, and irregular shapes 2. Power ratings to 120 W/in² (18.60 W/cm² ) 3. Resistant to most chemicals 4. Optional built-in temperature sensors 5. Exceptional temperature uniformity when designed with a heat-profiled foil pattern 6. Can be factory bonded to mating parts with no clamping hardware
Typical applications: 1. Semiconductor wafer processing 2. Heating of electronic components 3. Packaging, fusing, and splicing equipment 4. Medical diagnostic analyzers
