Fabrics for composite parts functionalization: heating, de-icing and electromagnetic shielding

Tibgrid®: flexible heating fabrics and heating textiles

Tibgrid heating fabrics integrate a heating yarn attached to a textile support which is light and open to facilitate its positioning.
  • Insulated or non-insulated heating elements (Thermotech or Spuntech) can be weaved.
  • The pitch can be adapted to your areal power heating requirements (see picture for the definition of the pitch).
  • In its standard version, the Tibgrid ISO has a width around 100mm (can be adapted to your needs). It is made either of a heating yarn weaved on the whole width or of many yarns in parallel with a sinusoidal path.
  • Its sinusoidal structure with open support make it easy to be inserted between two composite or textile layers.
  • A version of the Tibgrid fabrics also exists with a double heating yarns in order to:
    • Have a redundant heating grid, for instance for aerospace applications.
    • Have a higher a areal power without increasing the thickness.
    • Ease the connection by having the input and output of the circuit at the same place.
Tibgrid® calculator: the heating fabric Tibgrid is characterized by:
  • The heating circuit width: 5mm, 8mm, 10mm, 25mm, 50mm, 75mm, 100mm, 120mm.
  • The pitch of the circuit (i.e. gap between each sinusoid of the heating yarn): from 4mm to 20mm.
  • The heating yarn type: non insulated "N" or insulated "I" with different conductivities.
  • The presence of selvedges (additional support fabric aside the heating circuit) to ease the fabric integration.
The Tibgrid® fabric is sold by rolls: the minimal order length is 10m. If you want to perform the power or temperature calculations yourself, click on the link to download our calculator.

Heatdesign: flexible fit for purpose heating fabric for complex shapes

To get a constant areal heating or de-icing power no matter how complex the shape is, TIBTECH can design fit for purpose heating or de-icing fabrics which can easily be integrated into complex shapes made of composite or elastomer:
  • Areal power ranging from 100 to 5000 Watts/m².
  • For de-icing applications, power from 100 to 300 Watts/m² are usually enough. For heating applications, higher areal power are necessary.
  • Max dimensions of the fabric are 500mm x 700mm. Several elements can be assembled to make a larger structure.
  • To lower the overall cost, it can be interesting to associate a Tibgrid rectangular fabric with a more complex Heatdesign solution.

Tibmesh safety conductive fabrics and thermal gradient homogenization

Ultra-thin conductive, light and flexible cloth which is usually inserted between the heating fabric and the outer layer of the composite mold. These metallic fabrics have three main functions:
  • Thermal gradient homogenization: the heat generated by the resistive circuit is more evenly spread in between each wire sections.
  • Safety: except for very low tension applications, we strongly recommend to connect the Tibmesh conductive fabric to the ground. In case of accidental damage of the mold or composite part , this grounding will minimize electric shock risk by switching off the power supply.
  • Electro-magnetic shielding or induction heating of composite parts for the stainless version.
  • Commercialized in two versions:
    • Tibmesh 50 micrometres (75g/m²) stainless steel : sold in 1m width and 10m long rolls.
    • Tibmesh Cu copper base (75g/m²): sold in 1m width and 10m long rolls.
