- Thin, multiple circuits & even temperatures


Flexible foil heaters provide precise, dependable and immediate heat transfer for many applications. Our innovation center is employed with highly qualified engineers continuously working with new applications and materials. This allows us to find the optimal heating solution to meet your needs and produce it quickly. Our flexible heaters consist of an etched-foil laminated between one of our flexible insulations. Our flexible foil heaters also offer many more benefits including custom watt densities, various dielectric strengths, thin or thick profiles, added pressure sensitive adhesives (PSA), or bond directly to heat sinks.


As the demand for smart simple solutions increases, Backer HTI is continually evolving to meet the needs of the applications. Our designs with integrated thermal controllers and sensors offer solutions that communicate through RS232, WiFi, or Zigbee.

Backer HTI can design and produce intelligent heaters for nearly any size heater and temperature gradient. Contact us and our experienced engineers will guide you through finding the best possible solution to fit your application.


Even temperatures

Elements may have differentiated heating density to ensure even temperatures despite edge losses

Easy sensor location

Sensor connections are arranged in the same plane as the heating circuit

Multiple voltages

A 12 V connection - to drive a fan, for example -may be arranged in a 220/240 V element


Heating foil elements are manufactured to customer specifications

Multiple circuits

An element may comprise both a heating-up and a temperature holding circuit


Heating Foil elements are flexible: they can, for example, be mounted around a container


  • Camera heater

    Camera heater

    Prevents mist, condensation and ice on the lens to ensure a safe drive.
  • Battery heater

    Battery heater

    The batteries charging rate is affected by temperature and by adding heating to the batteries, both lifetime and efficiency will increase.
  • Test tube heater

    Test tube heater

    Requires small, exact and direct heat. Enables use of different power zones.


Backer HTI uses a wide selection of circuit and insulation materials and work together with our customers to find a solution that best fits their needs. Foil heating is an excellent solution when good thermal transfer is needed in a specific area, and are used in thermal control design to protect components under cold-case environments, or to make up for heat that is not dissipated. At Backer's innovation center, highly qualified and experienced engineers continuously experiment with new materials to continue improving our proccesses.
