Hicotherm™ is a heating system based on an extra-thin sheet of PET reinforced with carbon fiber, which converts the electrical current transmitted by bands of copper on its sides into heat. It can be used on any wall or floor surface and can be covered with any inorganic material (stone, stucco tiles, etc.), as well as many organic materials (wood, cork, plastic, PVC, etc.), as long as the material can support temperatures up to 60º C and does not have a thermal resistance greater than 0.15 m²K/W. To make better use of energy, installation on surfaces free of furniture is recommended, as well as the use of thermal insulation backing to reduce heat loss into the support surface. With certain limitations, the sheet can be drilled after installation. Three models are available; Hicotherm™ 220/110 (heating) and Hicotherm™ 60 (preheating of rooms or treatment for building pathologies), where the model number indicates the output in W/m². The sheet is 600 mm wide, 0.1 mm thick, and comes in lengths between 0.8 and 6.75 m. It operates at 24 V.
Hicotherm™ consists principally of a thin sheet of PET reinforced with carbon fibers. Optionally, it can include a layer of thermal insulation on one of its faces.
In addition to the sheet, the system includes all the elements required for operation. Example of an installation on a wall.
The sheet can also be installed in floors. It can either be attached to the support and finish or installed as a floating layer immediately below the flooring.
The sheet can be cut with scissors to adapt its length to the length of a wall.
