WE MAKE THINGS WORK - FLEXIBLE FOIL HEATERS

Backer Calesco has a wide selection of materials and we work together with our customers to find the best possible solution. Foil heating elements provide excellent thermal transfer where you need it most and are used in thermal control design to protect components under cold-case environmental conditions or to make up for heat that is not dissipated. At Backer Calesco’s innovation centre, highly qualified and experienced engineers continuously take on the challenge of new applications and materials.
