Silicone heating mats for Rail technology

Silicone heating mats are found in many areas of industry and technology. They are used for heating containers, funnels, bunkers or bins, flasks, tables, antennas, mirrors and reflectors, machine elements, metering cabinets, heating baths, medical equipment etc.

A silicone heating mat consists of heat conductor tracks – made of wire or etched foil – which are embedded between two strong, moisture- and temperature-resistant silicone layers with glass fabric reinforcement. The entire appliance is vulcanized to form a homogeneous entity. Shape, performance, profile and heating zones can be optimised for specific applications. Silicone heating mats retain their flexibility, even with temperatures down to –40 °C.


  • Customized system
  • Even heat distribution to avoid local overheating
  • Fast heating up thanks to small mass, while post-heating is minimized
  • Good contact even on curved geometries
  • Very easy to clean
  • Close heat conductor routing permits high heat output
