A commonly used portable heat source is the heat blanket. The design consists of a grid of wound resistance wire encased between two layers of vulcanized silicone rubber. Blankets can sustain temperatures of up to 500oF to bring a cure to its required state. Standard heat blankets are light-weight, easy to store, and are often inexpensive compared to other heat alternatives. The quality of a heat blanket is defined as its thermal uniformity and often is a function of how it’s made. Heatcon can provide thermal uniformity testing of blankets for added assurance of a quality product. Depending on the size of the blanket, it serves its purpose for small quick repairs or larger repairs. To learn more about HEATCON portable heat sources, visit www.heatcon.com.
