Menzolit has developed a method to incorporate heating wires into slabs of SMC to make integrally moulded heated trays, heating elements or similar items to heat electrically.

Moulding metal elements into SMC is not a new idea – it is done quite frequently – but moulding-in fragile heating wires without destroying them is more tricky. Researchers at Menzolit’s technical centre in Vineuil (France) are making this technology available to interested moulders and OEMs. They say that it allows a very economic and efficient way of producing heating elements and still provids great flexibility in design and styling to make the heated elements look attractive in a modern kitchen or living room environment.

They will be at the JEC Show, booth G30.
