What is Solid HeatFlex™?
Solid HeatFlex™ is a new material technology using a flexible heating material. Solid HeatFlex™ provides a continuous electrical current through the material used for in either extremely cold temperatures or hot temperatures. In extremely cold temperatures, some equipment, devices, and components will not function due to the freezing temperature. In contrast to extreme cold, the material also applies to extremely high heat applications sustained up to 400 degrees in Celsius.
Why Solid HeatFlex?
Flexible Heating Material is distinguished from other existing technologies. In comparison to the existing technology, Solid HeatFlex™ is pressure-free, fire-resistive, and energy-efficient. Subsequently, it lasts long and provides high energy efficiency. Therefore, it is highly adaptable to new applications in aerospace, chemical engineering, military applications, and wearing (clothing, shoes). Since it offers 2 to 3 times higher energy efficiency, there are multiple applications available in a mission-critical and extreme temperature environment.
One of the beneficial applications of technology is washable. Washing is the biggest issue with existing materials in self-heating clothes. As result, the final product of cloth made of carbon or silver nano, cannot wash it. The circuit to provide electrical current will be broken as a result of washing. Solid HeatFlex™ washable ability potentially replace other technologies (carbon, nano-silver) used in self-heating jackets. Especially, Solid HeatFlex™ provides a longer operating time due to energy efficiency.
As a result of Solid HeatFlex™ properties, there are many possibilities for different types of applications: aerospace engineering, chemical engineering, and commercial. Particularly, our Solid Heat Flex™ fits perfectly for the smart fabric or clothing since the application requires a seamless electrical current to flow. Also, it has to receive information from sensors for body temperature, blood pressure, and level of moisture. However, the existing technologies lacking to support these important requirements.
Flexible Heating Material is sustainable at 400 degrees in Celsius

Testing example with different temperature settings
With our technology, heat is being distributed evenly to all the angles of the material. Therefore, it results in high energy efficiency throughout the lifecycle of the target applications.
The material is an innovation that can replace existing materials having vulnerabilities issues: pressure, washing, and short life-cycle. Also, energy efficiency has been one of the most important issues with current technologies. In summary, Solid HeatFlex™ offers:
- High durability with external pressure or forces
- Even heat disbursement
- High Energy efficiency
- Sustainable in extreme high temperature (up to 400 degrees in Celsius)
- Fully washable, suitable for wearing applications
- Longer life-cycle than other material technologies
