Heating, de-icing or conductive fabrics

Tibgrid®: flexible heating fabrics and heating textiles

Tibgrid heating fabrics integrate a heating yarn attached to a textile support which is light and open to facilitate its integration. The Tibgrid heating fabric is characterized by:
  • The heating circuit width.
  • The pitch of the circuit (i.e. gap between each sinusoid of the heating yarn): from 4mm to 20mm.
  • Heating yarn type: non insulated "N" or insulated "I" with different conductivities.
  • The presence of selvedges (additional support fabric aside the heating circuit) to ease the Tibgrid fabric integration.
See picture below.

  • The pitch can be adapted to your areal power heating requirements.
  • Standard version: 100mm width with 10mm pitch.
  • Easy to be inserted between two composite or textile layers thanks to its open structure.
  • A version of the Tibgrid fabrics also exists with a double heating circuits in order to:
    • Have a redundant heating grid, for instance for aerospace applications.
    • Have a higher areal power without increasing the thickness.
    • Ease the connection: the input and output of the circuit are at the same place.

  • Fabrics for composite parts functionalization: heating and de-icing. The fabrics are completely integrated within the part.
  • Medical and sport: fomentation, heating pads or cushion, heating gloves or jackets.
  • Other flexible heating structures.

The Tibgrid® fabric is sold by rolls: minimum order length is 10 meters.

Tibgrid-Stretch: elastic heating textile

The Tibgrid-Stretch is made of a sinusoidal electrical heating circuit attach to an elastic fabric:

  • In addition to applications with elastic or stretchable cloth or layers, it allows easier layout on complex shapes , or to follow curves on a flat surface, specially when they are pre-positioned on a PLACETECH structure

  • Perfectly adapted to:

    • fabric for complex shape composite parts functionalization:
      • Composites: heating silicon vacuum bags (out of autoclave process), complex parts functionalization (e.g. parabolic antennas).
      • De-icing of composite parts through easy laying on complex shapes!
      • Ultralight version of TIBGRIDSTRETCH are very interesting to use in complex shapes where light weight is compulsory. Heating control by zone is also easily possible.
      • Of , it can also be used through simple stretchable laying process of complex shape or ultra light heating molds.

    • heating of stretchable or close to the skin garments:
      • TIBRIDSTRETCH is used in sport, boating, medical, workwear or other SMART textiles: stretchable heating fabric compatible with high stretch fabrics and compatible with breathability and moisture control.

PLACETECH: semi-adhesive flexible glass grid for easy TIBGRID heating structure pre-positioning

Placetech is a light semi-adhesive flexible grid:
  • Facilitates the pre-positioning of our heating fabric (TIBGRID) or ribbon (THERMOSTRETCH).
  • Attaching, detaching and attaching again a structure is possible on the Placetech
    see photographs here joint !
  • This can allow you to prepare your heating fabrics shapes on the TIBGRID support cut to the size or your composite parts beforehand! It can lead you to a good process time gain.
  • Made from fiber glass.
  • Sold by rolls:
    • Width: 110cm.
    • Opening: 5mm x 5mm.
    • Density: 60g/m².
