Why Carbon Fiber is Used in heating pad
Carbon fiber is used in the heating elements of UTK far infrared heating pad, providing comfortable warmth without excess bulkiness. However, many of you might not know much about the technology behind it. We’d like to walk you through the ins and outs of carbon fiber and heating elements in this article.
Literally speaking, carbon fiber is a fiber made of carbon atoms, which takes up 90% or more of the elements in carbon fiber. Carbon fiber is produced from organic fibers such as polyacrylonitrile (PAN) or synthetic resin fibers, with the carbonization process at high temperature under an inert gas condition to separate elements other than carbon.
You may have already heard about the usage of carbon fibers in various products, from space shuttles to sporting goods to artificial limbs. Carbon fiber is getting widely adopted as a reliable material versus metals because it’s more lightweight and incredibly durable.
Carbon fiber is almost 2 times lighter than aluminum and more than five times lighter than steel. This means in a piece with the same dimensions, using carbon fiber would largely reduce its weight rather than aluminium or steel.
Carbon fiber has an excellent performance in electrothermal conversion efficiency among all other non-metallic materials, enabling it to produce the heat efficiently. With a 5200 mAh rechargeable battery, the heating elements are tested to produce heat for up to 10 hours on low, 6 hours on medium, and 3 hours on high.
The shape of carbon fiber doesn’t deteriorate over time. Its shape and structure don’t change even when a consistent and constant force is applied to it. Every ORORO heated product is machine-washable. Tensile strength makes sure the carbon fiber won’t fall apart in the washer.
Compared to a lot of other materials, carbon fiber has a negative coefficient of thermal expansion, which means they don’t easily expand or shrink when the temperature changes. This is a desirable quality for heating elements that have to generate and maintain the heat in a wide range of temperatures.
UTK insists on using the highest quality of carbon fiber in the heating elements of every product. We know how vital it is to have superior heating elements on a functional heating pad, which is why we always choose the best to make our heating pad.
