  • What is a silicone rubber flexible heater?
    Our flexible heater elements are made by vulcanizing an alloy resistive wire between thin layers of fiberglass reinforced silicone rubber sheets. The end result is a thin (approx 0.060") heating element that can operate at up to 450F. With this basic building block we make all of our heaters, Drum heaters, semi-conductor (TECH1), motor heaters, enclosure heaters and more. We have the engineering and manufacturing ability to make almost any custom heater to fit your needs.
