An etched foil design element is the circuitry for Kapton®/Polyimide heaters. Heaters made with this DuPont(r) thin film are transparent, lightweight, flexible and are electrically strong. Kapton®/Polyimide is compatible with foil element alloys as inconel, nickel, copper, and stainless steel. They have low outgassing properties, are resistant to solvents and can be produced with special internal adhesive systems that permit higher operating temperatures. Heat curing film and pressure sensitive systems are available for mounting. Control and sensing devices can be incorporated.

Silicone Rubber is the most versatile rubber based dielectric used to produce flexible surface heaters. Both etched foil and wire wound element designs are offered. The application determines the choice. Fiberglass reinforced Silicone Rubber Heaters are
thin and flexible, durable and have a long shelf life. Etched foil designs afford more heater size, shape opportunities and enhance the longevity potential. Supplemental heat distributing and thermal shielding sheet materials (aluminum and silicone sponge respectively) are available. Heat curing, pressure sensitive, and mechanical mounting methods are available
