Energy consumption is a major issue for manufacturers across industries. The good news is that our PTC heating technology provides a safer and more reliable alternative to traditional heating methods, including carbon fiber or wire options. Our PTC heating technology can be used in a variety of applications, from healthcare equipment to automobiles, and is more efficient than other heating methods. In this article, we’ll explore how our PTC heating technology works and the benefits of using it on flexible substrates.
What is PTC heating technology?
Traditional heating technology uses elements like coils or carbon fibers to generate heat. This method has been used for years but comes with several challenges such as overheating, uneven heating, and higher energy consumption. In contrast, our PTC heating technology uses conductive ink printed on flexible materials.
Our PTC heaters are self-regulating and use positive temperature coefficient materials. This means that electrical resistance increases whenever the temperature increases, so the self-regulating material restricts the electrical current when temperatures rise, and it allows more current to pass when temperatures decrease. There is no need for external diagnostic controls, so our PTC heaters are safer and more reliable.
Using PTC heating technology on flexible substrates
Our PTC heating technology on flexible substrates has opened up a new world of opportunities for manufacturers. Since substrates are thin and flexible, heating elements can be included virtually anywhere without the need for bulky coils. There are several benefits of using our PTC heating technology on flexible substrates, including:
Safety is a major concern with any heating element. Our PTC heaters virtually eliminate the risk of overheating and have built-in fail safes, so the failed part will stop drawing electrical current, allowing the rest of the heater to continue functioning.
- More Uniform Heating
Traditional heating technology often leads to cold spots or uneven heating. Our PTC heaters independently maintain an ideal temperature, resulting in an even distribution of heat at all times.
Our PTC heaters can be as thin as 0.005 inches, making it possible to install heating technology in a wide variety of products, from automobile seats to wearable devices. Since they can withstand more abuse, such as folding and creasing, they are also very durable.
- Environmentally Friendly
Manufacturing our PTC heaters creates much less waste compared to traditional heaters. They use less power than traditional heaters and are very energy efficient.
- Temperature and Resistance
Our company's patents are based around the ability to achieve a wide variety of "switch temperatures," which is critical during the design phase of any development project. In addition, our inks reveal a high multiplication of resistivity when compared to other inks in the industry, which is another patented feature.
