KEY BENEFITS

RAPID HEAT TRANSFER

AMORPHOUS HEAT TAPE VS TRADITIONAL HEATING ELEMENTS

RAPID HEAT TRANSFER

Thanks to the slim profile of our distinctive heating element, the HeatWAVE system ensures a far better and efficient spread of generated heat to the surrounding area. In comparison, traditional round wires or hydronic tubes which tend to trap heat within the element, leading to a high temperature gradient. Illustrated in the images, our metallic heat tape boasts superior heat flux, preventing heat accumulation and eliminating temperature stresses. What this means is that our system will offer a much faster heat transfer. The desired surface will heat much more rapidly versus all other radiant heating sources, saving the user tremendously on running costs.

BETTER HEATING SCIENCE

Our amorphous metal undergoes a unique manufacturing process, resulting in the creation of thin yet remarkably durable metal ribbons. With a slender yet highly durable profile measuring between 20-30 microns, our heating element boasts a distinctive advantage. The low mass of the heating element empowers it to start being effective with minimal wattage consumption where it outperforms standard alternatives significantly. Notably, the amorphous metal tape excels in delivering heat far more rapidly compared to traditional heating elements, including hydronic tubes or electrical cables. While traditional systems need alot more energy to be effective, the HeatWAVE system will start being effective using less energy, provide heat faster and shut off. Talk about energy effciency!

FLEXIBLE DESIGN & EASY INSTALLATION

FLEXIBLE DESIGN & EASY INSTALLATION

Amorphous HeatWAVE® ribbons are available in a range of lengths from 10 to 66 meters, providing unparalleled flexibility during installation. Their adaptability allows for installation in any direction, offering ultimate flexibility. When incorporating Amorphous HeatWAVE® in concrete slab applications, the heating ribbon can be effortlessly secured to the wire mesh and manipulated to follow any desired direction, similarly to how PEX tubing is installed. The only difference being that with the HeatWAVE® there is no boilers, manifolds and potential leakages to worry about.

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY & LOWER OPERATING COSTS

The HeatWAVE® system presents an ideal alternative to traditional hydronic heating sources, particularly in light of the escalating costs associated with fossil fuels. Opting for the HeatWAVE® not only contributes to environmental well-being but also results in substantial reductions in operational expenses. Additional cost savings can be achieved by complementing the HeatWAVE® system with solar panels, offering a sustainable and cost-effective solution for your heating needs.

EASY INSTALLATION

The Amorphous HeatWAVE® heating system is perfect for any indoor/outdoor heating application whether it is commercial or residential. Simply lay out the heating ribbons under any terrain and cover with your choice of terrain. With its flexible design, the heating ribbon(s) can be installed in any direction to maximize ease of installation. The Amorphous HeatWAVE® is ideal for driveway heating, under paving stones, concrete slabs and under soil for greenhouses/sports fields. 

UNDER ASPHALT

* Insulation is not mandatory, but optional. If applied energy consumption will be lower and the surface above will heat quicker at the desired temperature. For the insulation layer we recommend all slab grade insulation with a heat threshold rating of continuous 70°C (158°F).

* HeatWAVE ribbon must be protected by concrete layer before pouring hot asphalt. Direct pour of hot asphalt on the HeatWAVE ribbon will damage it. 

INSIDE CONCRETE SLAB

* Insulation is not mandatory, but optional. If applied energy consumption will be lower and the surface above will heat quicker at the desired temperature. For the insulation layer we recommend all slab grade insulation with a heat threshold rating of continuous 70°C (158°F).

UNDER PAVING STONES

* Insulation is not mandatory, but optional. If applied energy consumption will be lower and the surface above will heat quicker at the desired temperature. For the insulation layer we recommend all slab grade insulation with a heat threshold rating of continuous 70°C (158°F).

AGRICULTURE / SOIL APPLICATIONS

* Insulation is not mandatory, but optional. If applied energy consumption will be lower and the surface above will heat quicker at the desired temperature. For the insulation layer we recommend all slab grade insulation with a heat threshold rating of continuous 70°C (158°F).
