Electro Plastics is the manufacturer of STEP® Marine, low voltage heating elements made of a unique homogeneous, self-regulating, positive temperature coefficient (PTC), Nano-carbon polymer blend. This means that as the temperature increases, the resistance increases, and the consumption of electricity decreases. These patented heating elements are thin (1.2mm), flexible, durable and come in 12″, 9″, 6” and 3″ wide. The elements can be indifferently connected to a 24V AC power supply or to a DC controller and run directly to alternative energy. The heating elements can be used for interior and exterior applications, including floor warming, primary heat, snow melt and deicing. The STEP® Marine system is very energy efficient because of its self-regulating abilities and due to its large and low-temperature heat distribution. Besides heating luxurious interiors in yachts, STEP® Marine has been installed for deicing on the NOAA vessels, on tugboats that go to Alaska at minus 40 degrees and on pilot boats in New York and the Great Lakes. The product has an ABS Certificate of Design Assessment and is suitable for use in Class 1, Division 1 & 2. If it needs heating STEP (Self-Regulating Technology of Electro Plastics) has the solution.
STEP Marine Deicing
STEP® Marine heating system is designed to prevent snow and ice accumulation on decks,bulkheads, walls and stairs. The mats are embedded in a heat retention material forming a unique deicing system providing safety for personnel and deck equipment. The system runs on AC or DC and comes in different sizes and voltages. STEP® Marine has no moving parts and requires virtually no maintenance. The heating mats are wide and flat giving optimal heat transfer to any surface,including steel and aluminum. Because it is self-regulating it cannot overheat and uses less energy than any known heating system. STEP® Marine has been installed for deicing on the NOAA vessels, on tugboats that go to Alaska at minus 40 degrees and on pilot boats in New York and the Great Lakes.
STEP Marine Warmfloor
STEP® Marine Warmfloor is a low-voltage, 24V AC/DC, thin,durable and flexible heating elements made of a homogeneous self-regulating PTC semi-conductive unique polymer blend. As the ambient temperature increases, the electric resistance increases and the energy consumption decreases. STEP® Marine Warmfloor can be used for heating luxurious interiors in yachts under most floor coverings because it is self-regulating and cannot overheat. Used for primary heat or floor warming, the heating elements are very energy efficient, easy to install and can be cut to size on site.
