A New Generation of Heated Devices
We supply a comprehensive range of materials tailored for crafting discreet heaters ideal for an array of applications such as medical devices, consumer and industrial wear, fitness recovery, therapeutics, and automotive needs. These innovative heaters boast soft, compliant, conforming, and stretchable properties, effectively eliminating the necessity for bulky wires.
Through close collaboration, we work hand-in-hand with clients and various functional printers, crafting tailored heater solutions for diverse applications. ACI offers top-tier stretchable heater materials capable of accommodating simple to intricate fixed-resistance heaters. Unlike conventional wearable heaters manufactured on rigid substrates or employing uncomfortable wires, our heaters are crafted through printing on a TPU system, ensuring a soft, elastic, and skin-friendly composition. Notably, ACI heaters stand out for their flexibility, lightweight build, durability, and customizable features, including the unique ability to solder directly on the ink, providing robust connections. These circuits are designed for optimal comfort within a temperature range of 68°F to 122°F (20°C to 50°C).
Our stretchable material suite can be used in a variety of industries and applications including:
- Athletics—heated garments for muscle recovery
- Automotive—heated steering wheels, heated seats
- Medical—heat therapy
- Military—heated garments
- Outdoor Enthusiasts—heated gear (sleeping bags, gloves, boots), heated clothing
