Carbon Fiber Heating
The favorable strength to weight ratio and generally excellent mechanical properties of carbon fiber has led to its use in many aerospace, sports goods and transportation applications. Another well recognized, but less often used, property of carbon fiber is its electrical conductivity.
Carbon fiber heaters are gaining popularity in healthcare applications due to the following features:
- The surface temperature of a carbon fiber heater is low. Therefore, they are safer and people can withstand longer therapy sessions.
- Carbon fiber heaters emit far infrared rays which are most beneficial for health and healing.
- Carbon fiber heaters Infrared heat penetrates deeper into the skin tissue.
- Carbon fiber heaters are energy-efficient as they heat human body directly instead of the air around.
Carbon fiber heaters come in three different forms:
