ABOUT PTC HEATERS

Innovative, flexible, printed heating elements composed of PTC materials that heat evenly across their entire surface. They self-regulate to a specified temperature without the need for external diagnostics or controls.

UNIFORM PERFORMANCE

PTC heaters provides even, uniform heating without the hot spots associated with traditional technologies. PTC heaters achieve precise temperatures quickly, with uniform temperature distribution and superior heat transfer. Heaters can also be designed with multiple temperature zones.

Termico utilizes high-resolution thermal imaging equipment to monitor the quality of the temperature and uniformity of the heat output generated.

 

INCREDIBLY VERSATILE

Thin, flexible, and available in any shape, PTC heaters are suitable for many applications and can run on DC or AC power, from 6 volts up to 120. Termico Tech's unique PTC heaters are manufactured to our customer’s specific requirements using unlimited sizes, shapes, and heat configurations. Our specialized 4-post screen printing equipment is capable of printing the required conductive and PTC inks to extremely precise tolerances. Plus, they are thinner and more flexible than forced air and silicone heaters, and more robust than graphite heaters.

ENERGY EFFICIENT

PTC heaters require less energy and operate at lower temps than traditional technologies which saves on battery life. Additive conductive circuitry PTC heaters are more environmentally friendly by producing less waste than the subtractive chemical etching process used in copper foil heaters or the wires used for silicone heaters.

They have a long life time and low power consumption. Due to the energy savings from using less power, combined with the elimination of components and controls, PTC heaters typically result in a lower total installed cost vs. most of the common heater constructions available today (copper etched foil, silicone rubber, forced air and graphite heaters).

 

SAFE & DURABLE

PTC heaters are self-regulating and completely sealed. Termico's PTC heaters are inherently safer because they act as their own sensor, resulting in a safer and more efficient heating system. The self-regulating nature reduces the need for additional fuses, controller units, etc. All this results in fewer field problems, greater safety, and lower power requirements. Any failure will “fail to cold”, independent of the failure mode.

Materials used to create our PTC heaters are corrosion resistant and stand up to physical damage such as cuts, piercing, and folds without producing unsafe temperature spikes. They can operate in the temperature extremes of outdoor environments.

What is "PTC"?

PTC stands for Positive Temperature Coefficient. These are materials that exhibit a positive resistance change with an increase in temperature. When power is applied, the resistance increases and limits the electrical current to the heater.
