A line of commercial-grade Kapton-insulated heaters are said to provide the benefits of thin-etched foil element at a lower cost. The heaters are less than 0.01 inch thick and can be formed to a 0.03-inch radius. Standard size options from 0.5 by 2-inch to 5-by 5-inch are designed for uniform power output at 12 or 24 volts DC. Solder pad terminals are standard, with factory-installed PTFE insulated lead wires optional. All models include PSA film mounting adhesive for operation to 100 degrees C.
