Thick FilmConductive and resistive inks are printed on a film substrate layer, and then covered with another film layer laminated together with pressure sensitive adhesive (PSA). Typically, the film layers are .005" thick thermoplastic or thermoset polymers, like polyester (up to 105°C) or polyimide (up to 180°C), that exhibit good thermal conductivity while serving as electrical insulators. An additional layer of PSA can be added to the bottom of the assembly so the element can be bonded directly to the surface to be heated, ensuring excellent thermal transfer.
