Silicone Heaters

Heatfast closed cell insulation foam type silicone heaters provide high efficiency barrier to help reduce heat loss from applications such as liquid or gas pipelines, frost protection, temperature critical pipe line assemblies and to reduce heat loss on valves, pumps and flanges.

Silicone rubber products have an excellent resistance to oxidation, ozone, UV light, corona discharge, cosmic radiation and general weathering. The flame retardant pads are available in 3 mm, 5 mm, 8 mm and 12 mm thicknesses and 3 different colours (red, grey or white).

For complete heat tracing of complex mechanical services and pipework systems in both industrial and hazardous area locations we can provide a full range of heating cables and trace heating systems.
