Flexible Heaters

Electric flexible heaters constructed of silicone rubber or polyimide material provide excellent heat transfer, low watt densities, low outgassing and precision heat distribution. Their light weight, thin profile, low mass and tensile strength are advantageous in various applications throughout the medical, aerospace, laboratory, electronics, food equipment, semiconductor, and many other OEM markets.

Durex’s unique approach to flexible heating elements optimizes the product’s design to meet the customer’s most important requirements. This collaborative process, based on extensive experience with complex OEM product roll outs, assures that both business and technical requirements are optimized in the design.
