It is a radiant heating system based on the use of a very thin (1.25 mm) mat made with a modulating and self-adjusting semiconductor technopolymer, which heats up when electric current passes through it. The reaction triggered is a molecular vibration of the nanoparticles that generates progressive heating of the semiconductiong polymer.
As the temperature of the mat icreases, the nanoparticles contained in the polymer compound move away from each other, resulting in a progressive decrease in electrical continuity; the closer the temperature approaches the maximum threshold reached by the polymer, the lower the electrical absorption through the mat.
This characteristic, called PTC (positive temperature coefficient), uses the heating of the material to limit the current flowing through it (and therefore electrical consumption) by gradually increasing the resistance of the semiconductor as the temperature rises.
Therefore, for the same end effect (temperature of the heating element), using this semiconductor technology significantly cuts down on overall power consumption compared to a similar heater with electrical conductors operating through heating resistors, thanks to the natural, automatic modulation and self-adjustment of the end temperature, without any thermostatic control and limiting element.
MORE PAD OUTDOOR
Floor and ceiling installation
MORE PAD OUTDOOR can be installed as a low-voltage electrical supplement to radiant heating systems (indoors) or for heating outdoor surfaces at risk of frost.
Version powered directly from the 230V AC mains, with self-adjusted end temperature of approx. 45°C.
SIZE AND PERFORMANCE:
MORE PAD OUTDOOR is available in 30 m or 10 m rolls with a width of 270 mm. The maximum power consumption adjustable at cold start, is approx. 50 W per running metre, equivalent to approx. 150 W/m2 in the case of laying with contiguous strips.
The possibility of supplying individually wired branches, up to 20 m in length, allows application in outdoor surfaces with a risk of frost and snow such as, for example, driveways, outdoor stairs, ramps, vehicle walkways, terraces, flat roofs or as a ceiling integration of underfloor radiant systems.
