Introduction to the use of flexible transparent heaters


Flexible Transparent Heater is a newly product of flexible heater, which is different with traditional/popular heaters such as Polyimide heaters, silicon rubber heaters, transparent heater has excellent light transmittance of almost 90% can perfectly solve blurry vision caused by temperature difference, as well as its flexible voltage design, power can apply to everywhere we need.

Flexible transparent heater is to print two electrodes on both sides of a transparent conductive layer, and heat the whole surface by energizing the two electrodes to achieve infrared heating. 
It is consisted of PET protective film, a transparent conductive layer, PET substrate and Optical Clear Adhesive (OCA), showing in below image, you can see the structure of Transparent heater.

Basic parameter of Transparent Heater

PET substrate can be 0.125mm (including conductive layer), some customer also chose 0.188mm. (Thinner substrate is easy to wrinkle to cause defective, so we don’t suggest to use thickness thinner than 0.125mm.)

PET protective film we commonly used is 0.1mm, 0.125mm

OCA (a kind of optical high permeability double-sided adhesive), the thickness can be 0.125mm or 0.175mm (It depends on customers’ requirements, some products do not need to use OCA.) 

Finished thickness: 0.2-0.4mm

Working temperature: -40oC – 80oC
