Flexible Insulated Conductive
or Heating wires

THERMOTECH or CONDUCTIB flexible conductive cables are most often withstanding mechanical or thermal fatigue constraints as well as washing. Being of various cross sections, one has to choose their power transfer ability by length unit, according to requirements

The insulated heating yarns Thermotech "I" (with high temperature resistant insulation)

Properties:

  • Very fine and flexible due to its micro fibers composition.

  • Its relatively small thickness allows the optimization of the thickness of intermediate resin layers, and therefore the weight

  • Maximum electric tension of 380 volts.

  • Maximum temperature is 230°C, which can be withstood thanks to high performance coating (PTFE, MFA, PFA or equivalent).

  • Other properties are similar to the ones of the Thermotech "N".


Flexible PTFE (PFA or MFA) insulated heating wires THERMOTECH cover a complementary resistivity range to the CONDUCTIB yarns. They have an excellent mechanical and thermal cycles withstanding ability : CONDUCTIB insulated wires are available in the following resistivity range : 3,6 Ohms/m, 4,6 Ohms/m, 7 Ohms/m, 14 Ohms/m, 23 Ohms/m, 30 Ohms/m

Heating or conductive yarns Conductib

More conductive that THERMOTECH yarns, CONDUCTIB yarns are generally more adapted to larger heating surfaces and characterized by :

  • High conductivity and therefore suitable to deal with higher currents, suitable for larger heating surfaces.

  • Great flexibility.

  • These yarns are designed to transfer electric power or data within the flexible structure.

  • High temperature resistant (230°C) insulated version Conductib "I" available.


Flexible isolated CONDUCTIB yarns are used in conductive, deicing or heating applications on large surfaces, and more specially with high temperature , up to 230°C, constraints !

 CONDUCTIB insulated wires are available in the following resistivity range : 0,06 Ohms/m, O,11 Ohms/m, 0,19 Ohms/m, 0,35 Ohms/m, 0,48 Ohms/m, 1,0 Ohm/m

Thermostretch: Stretchable and washable conductive heating or deicing ribbon

Thermostretch stretchable heating ribbons are similar to Condustretch but adapted to strainfull heating applications :

  • "N" non insulated or "I" insulated versions exists.

  • Designed for low voltage (3 to 24 volts).

  • Easily inserted within garments.
    In insulated version, they will withstand washing processes while keeping their stretchability

  • Some examples of application where elasticity can be very interested (dedicated to industrial transformers)

    • diving suit or heating garment

    • motorbike seats, vest or car battery connected car seat heating pads

    • accessories or heating jackets for animals

    • medical or veterinary applications

    • heating accessories for incubators or livestock, or for sprouting seedings or forcing plants

    • deicing or pre-heating of pipes or industrials containers

This list is of course not exhaustive and can be extended!

Condustretch : Electro conductive stretchable connecting BUS narrow fabric, with insulated conductive wires

Stretchable conductive Narrow fabrics Condustretch are perfectly adapted to sensor connexions, data or energy transfer within washable multilayers structures or composite parts :
 

Standard version or Condustretch duo (input and output):

  • Can help to pre-position the connections within thermoplastic flat parts which will later undergo thermoforming or press-forming.

  • A version exists with several conductive yarns in parallel which makes a data bus elastic in all directions (contrary to "flex" electronics circuits).

  • They are well adapted to sport or medical clothes or for robotics.

  • Specific versions with controlled elongation are adapted to strain monitoring.

  • Connection within washable clothes is one of the main applications of the Condustretch.

Multi conductive yarns Condustretch version:

  • Elastic bus with a large number of ultra-thin insulated conductors ideal for use in robotics, complex connectors or elements embedded in a thermoplastic or thermoformable structure.
