Watlow Wire Wound Element Silicone Rubber Flexible Heaters are rugged yet thin, lightweight, and flexible. With Watlow flexible heaters, you can put the heat where it's needed and, in the process, improve heat transfer, speed warm-ups, and decrease wattage requirements. Fiberglass-reinforced silicone rubber gives your Watlow heater dimensional stability without sacrificing flexibility. Because very little material separates the element from the part, heat transfer is rapid and efficient.

These flexible, silicone rubber Watlow heaters are wire-wound and can generate watt densities up to 80 W/in² (12.5 W/cm²) depending upon application temperature. At just 0.055 inches thick, these heaters can be designed to almost any shape and size, including 3-D geometries, to conform to your equipment. The silicone rubber material is moisture and chemical-resistant providing longer heater life and making it easy to bond or attach to your part through the use of vulcanizing, adhesives, or fasteners.
