Heaters for automotive

With electrification dominating automotive innovation, our flexible printed circuit (FPC) technology is uniquely suited to help our OEM partners heat occupants while also successfully managing battery temperature. Our FPCs can provide effective localized heating to the battery, seats, steering wheel, windshield, and virtually any other surface. They do this by actually becoming the heating element when electrical current is passed through their printed conductive substrates.

Higher efficiency meets safer performance.

The increased flexibility and conductivity of FPCs can contribute to the design of lighter, more energy-efficient heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems – which ultimately leads to more miles per charge. Plus, their pliable, flexible nature makes FPCs more resistant to fatigue and damage under stress, reducing the risk of electrical failure and fire.

Our compact and versatile FPC solutions can conform to virtually any shape or object to bring efficient, comfortable, and localized heating to any surface.

Custom solutions from the simple to the complex.

Whether your design calls for a single pliable, conductive heating element or a complex wiring harness for an entire onboard heating system, our FPC and custom material technologies offer efficient, customizable solutions. Talk to us. We’ll collaborate with you to design components that are tailored to your specific needs, eliminating the need for an off-the-shelf solution.

We work with OEMs all over the world to help develop heating and cooling systems that conform to tight, curved, and unconventional surfaces.
Our FPC and custom materials can be manufactured roll to roll, at scale, and at the speed and volume you need. They also aid in automated assembly to help you mitigate build cost and time to market.

FPC-enabled heaters can deliver direct heat more efficiently than traditional air circulation systems.

We’re here to help.
