Thermex Sensor Film Allows Engineers To Quickly Check And Correct Surface Temperature Variations


Sensor Products announces that as thermal management becomes increasingly important, there is a growing need for Thermex temperature distribution film. Thermex is an economical thin film that can be used in virtually any application to monitor heated contacting surfaces from 200° to 300°F (93° to 149°C). It may be used alone or in conjunction with pressure indicating film from Sensor Products.

Upon exposure to heat, Thermex changes color instantaneously and permanently to reveal temperature distribution between any two contacting surfaces. The intensity of this color change directly relates to the temperature it was exposed to enabling Thermex to reveal spot high or low temperature zones and minute surface variations.

Invasive intolerant environments and interfaces that aren't easily accessed with traditional temperature indicators and infrared thermometers are among candidates for Thermex.

While the Thermex used for testing may be saved for archival purposes, its low cost renders it inherently disposable. A sheet of Thermex which is available in 14" by 17" (35.6 by 43.2 cm) format costs $25.00 or $299.99 for a pack of 25 sheets. It can be easily trimmed for smaller applications or custom cut to defined dimensions.

New applications for Thermex are being discovered daily. Common applications include heat sealing, lamination/press, flat web-type machines used in converting, ultrasonic welding, heat sinking, and clutch/brake interfaces.

Post processing analysis of Thermex is available for temperature fluctuations that need to be analyzed with great precision. For more information, visit Many items from Sensor Products are available in their shopping cart online.
