KTP - Conductive Polymer Composites for Self-Regulating Heating

Principal investigator: Emiliano BILOTTI
Funding source(s): Knowledge Transfer Partnerships
 Start: 01-12-2014  /  End: 30-11-2017
 Amount: £206,273
The project aims at launching market transforming conductive polymer composites, characterised by tuneable positive temperature coefficient (PTC) resistance profiles, electrically connected by standard terminals, for use in self-regulating large surface area, flexible heating devices. In particular, industrial applications in potentially explosive environments governed by the strict safety standards applying to the EU ATEX Directive (94/9/EC) and its derived IECEx international equivalents.
