Minco Demonstrates New SmartHeat SLT Thin Film Heater Technology at Paris Air Show

Self-Tunes in Dynamic Environments and Won’t Overheat

Aston, France, May 2017 - Minco Products, Inc., a global provider of thermal solutions, flex circuits, and temperature sensing and control solutions for a broad range of industries and applications that require high reliability, announces that demonstrations of its new SmartHeat SLT (Self-Limiting Technology) line of thin-film heaters will take place at the 2017 International Paris Air Show in Hall 4, Booth E136.

The International Paris Air Show is organised by the SIAE, a subsidiary of GIFAS, the French Aerospace Industries Association. The 52nd show will take place at the Le Bourget Parc des Expositions from 19 to 25 June 2017, and once again will bring together all the players in this global industry around the latest technological innovations.

Minco’s SmartHeat SLT heaters offer a convenient alternative to traditional heating and temperature control devices in Aerospace and Defense applications, providing self-limiting control at prescribed temperatures as well as self-tuning capability in dynamic environments. Utilizing a patented polymer compound, SmartHeat SLT heaters pinpoint exactly when and where heat is required, without the use of traditional feedback loops and regulating electronics.

The control mechanism is inherent to the polymer inner-lay material at every point across the heater’s surface. At the specified temperature control point, the resistance increases exponentially to prevent overheating and promote thermal uniformity. This simplifies the end-use device’s design, condenses the product design and development cycle, and reduces total system cost.

SmartHeat SLT heaters are thin, flexible, and specially engineered to eliminate the risk of overheating, which can damage electro-optical components, handheld electronic displays and fluid warming devices. Minco’s market-leading engineering and production capabilities result in lightweight designs and optimized performance. Minco has more than 40 years’ experience performing thermal simulation and lab testing in industries and applications where reliability and safety is critical.

Minco's SmartHeat SLT Thin-Film Heaters are
available in standard and custom models.
