Tape heater (ribbon heater)

This is a flexible heater with the heating element nichrome ultra-fine wire zigzag braided with heat-resistant fiber and can be used within a working temperature range of 200℃ – 500℃.

Tape heater (ribbon heater)


Heat resistance temperature: Up to 500℃
Three types of product are available matched to working temperatures.

*Please ask us about higher temperatures.

  • Flexible
    The flexibility of the ribbon shape makes it ideal for use for applications such as wrap-around heating and insulation.
  • Even planar heating
    The zigzag heating element produces a heating effect closer to planar heating.
  • Order-made
    Products can be order-made to match customers’ working conditions and needs.


  • Temperature control of tanks, hoppers and piping devices
  • Temperature control of chemical equipment
