Conductive inks are frequently used to create printed heating elements, which can be integrated into various applications across different markets, such as automotive, medical as well as building and furniture. Printed heating elements are resistive heaters that can be designed using silver inks alone or a combination of silver and carbon inks. Throughout our portfolio of conductive and non-conductive ink formulations, we also offer LOCTITE inks that are suitable for the creation of such printed heating elements. Especially positive temperature coefficient inks, commonly abbreviated as PTC inks, are suitable for the production of printed flexible heaters. In fact, our PTC heater materials enable the production of self-regulating printed heating elements, as they only heat up to a certain temperature threshold. Therefore our PTC inks prevent overheating, which makes them especially suitable to be integrated into a variety of consumer applications to create smart surfaces, e.g. automotive seat heating, wall and floor heating or medical surgery equipment. In addition, our line of conductive and non-conductive inks are suitable for low and high voltage resistive flexible heaters.
