PEN

PEN is a heater similar to polyester (PET) but with much better properties. PEN is little more expensive, but has higher, chemical, thermal, mechanical and electrical properties. The material is commonly used in electronic devices.

Heater benefits
- Possible to wave flow solder with lead-free solder
- Higher temperature possible compared to PET
- Good chemical resistant
- 30% higher mechanical strength compared to PET
- Waterproof

Typical applications
- Bathroom mirror heaters
- Radiator elements
- DNA analyze
- High power standard elements (more cost effective compared to polyimide elements)
