Tempco’s composite bonding and curing heater blankets are designed with an extra strong strain relief, and even heat distribution to produce the best possible cure or bond. Temperature uniformity is optimized for even heating through computer designed resistance elements. Circuit spacing is maintained at 1/4" for larger heater blankets or less on smaller heaters. This technique guarantees a ±10°F (±5.5°C) temperature uniformity across the heater blanket. The lead wires exit the heater through an unheated 2" × 2" lead exit tab. This allows the overall heater surface to be heated while maintaining a separate unheated section for the transition from resistance element to the leads and a solid strain relief.
