Ceramic

Ceramic (Alumina)

Ceramic substrates are extremely versatile due to the ability to formulate heaters that have good mechanical strength with extremely low inertia mass. Extremely powerful heaters from very small sizes can be fabricated with the ability to reach temperatures in excess of 400°C in a matter of seconds and cool down almost as rapidly.

Specification: 

Temperatures up to 450°C
Dimensions 

Flat - From .08” x .08” to as large as 8” x 16”. With Thicknesses ranging from .0165” to .60”.
Tubular - Up to .60” OD

Dense and Porous options available
Voltages - From 3 volts to 300 volts – AC or DC current.
Wattage - Up to 350 watts/sq in.
