Heating blankets for composite repair and processing have not evolved since their introduction, what has changed is their frequency of use and deployment. Relative to composite processing, the push to mature OoA (Out of Autoclave) and OoO (Out of Oven) technology is relying on new and novel heating materials that can be integrated into the tooling or be applied as a blanket or applique. VeeloHEAT is a carbon-based thin film that can be customized for specific applications. The heating element is a thin film planar sheet that allows for excellent uniformity in standard and custom shaped applications.
