Etch Foil Heaters

Etch Foil Heaters

Carlton Thermal Systems are approved suppliers for RICA division IRCA Spa, one of the largest heater manufacturers in the World.

We supply Etch Foil Heaters, manufactured to specifications and approved by the European Space Agency to suit any requirements with Silicone Rubber, Mica, Kapton and Polyester substrates.
There are endless possibilities in design. The basic principal is to etch tracks onto the substrate of our customer’s choice and this gives the ability to vary the amount of power in a given area. In addition to that we have very large autoclaves so that we can manufacture fully vulcanise silicone mats to metal plates.

The applications for this type of heater are very diverse from Aerospace (Satellites, Space stations, planes etc) through to Electro-medical applications, domestic panel radiators and waterbed heaters.
