Miralon® Products for Heating Applications

Traditional heating products are inefficient, costly to run, and take a significant amount of time to reach the desired level of comfort.  This is because they heat via convection, which works by heating the air around you. Nanocomp’s flexible and lightweight solution for heating applications, made with Miralon sheets, heats the object directly utilizing far infrared energy and thus is more efficient and quicker to impart warmth. 


Why Miralon FAR Infrared Heating?

  • Human skin absorbs heat predominantly because of its ~80% water content. 
  • Far Infrared is the most biologically significant wavelength* for heat absorption. Designing a heater that peaks in these wavelengths  translates to more effective heating.
  • Miralon emits ~85% of light energy in the 7,000 - 14,000nm wavelength.

Miralon offers a high-efficiency solution without the limitations of conventional materials which require elements to be heated to very high temperatures to allow effective heating at a distance.  Miralon generates IR in the perfect range to heat people, not spaces or rooms, providing personalized comfort and efficient task heating. 

Heating solutions made with Miralon are nearly instant on and not hot to the touch making them suitable for a wide variety of radiant and contact heating applications for the residential, commercial and automotive sectors.
