Turning up the heat

Flexible heaters are a multitalented material. They can be as large or as small as you need. They can have almost any shape you like and can also be bent and turned. In this way, heat is distributed evenly and quickly. Something which means they can be used in a number of different contexts and applications.

Flexible heaters can be found in many homes, within industry, the health care sector and the restaurant trade. They warm hands and water beds and help keep everyday items, such as bank machines, rear-view mirrors and antennas, free from snow and ice.
Yet we believe that this is just the beginning. That is why we are looking for- ward to continuing work on developing new technical laminates adapted for new areas of application.
By constantly accepting new challenges, we have learned a lot of new things and developed both as individuals and as a company. This has also resulted in unique know-how and experience of how to combine conductive and supporting materials in order to produce technical laminates with the properties and performance to meet our customers’ needs.

Efficient production of standard products and customised solutions

Skultuna Flexible has state-of-the-art production machinery for manufacturing material solutions. No matter whether this involves long or short production runs, we always work smart. To be able to satisfy our customers’ requirements and expectations for efficient production machinery, we continuously invest in new technology and projects to increase capacity.
Skultuna Flexible’s desire to question existing solutions and our ability to devise new ones makes us a profitable partner for manufacturers of flexible heaters.

Materials that creates new possibilities

Skultuna Flexible develops and manufactures a complete range of laminates for the flexible heater industry. Technical laminates are typically suitable for high- volume roll-to-roll etching processes.
Our extensive experience in manufacturing technical laminates in large or small volumes ensures you have access to a steady, cost-effective supply of stan- dard and customised materials at the agreed, uniform quality. All our operations are certified according to ISO 9001:2000, ISO 14001:2004 and meet all criteria* for manufacturing for the electronics industry.

Standard materials in our product range include single-side materials, with corresponding cover substrates, shielding materials and heat equalisation. All materials are recognised for their stability and excellent electrical and thermal properties.
These are available in combinations of raw materials selected on the basis of the requirement of the circuit.
