Positive Temperature Coefficient Heaters

PTC Heaters are a flexibly printed heater that can be transferrable onto any textile or garment. PTC Heaters are made through electronic print, utilising specialised inks to create the enhanced performance of the print.

These heaters are commonly used in apparel application for the use of heating specific clothing items. For example in the medical industry PTC heaters are utilised in back and knee braces. PTC heaters are also commonly used in lifestyle apparel such as heated jackets and boots for winter sports.



The self-regulating function further proves the PTC Heaters are very safe for use, removing the burden of constantly monitoring it. Reid Print Technologies can configure a maximum heat setting to ensure the heater performs efficiently for the desired heat application.


The ultra-thin print allows for the PTC Heaters to feel undetectable. This is especially beneficial to the apparel industry, ensuring the heater is not noticeable or feel bulky for the wearer.
