Getting the best from your Monaflex Heat Pads

Our Heat Pads, as with all Monaflex products, are designed and manufactured to the highest standards.

They provide consummate flexibility and incomparable durability. Multiple layers of reinforced heavy duty, yet light weight fabric prevents distortion of the Heat Pad while providing maximum protection of the element wire.

Not withstanding the precise engineering, finest quality raw materials and first-class manufacturing processes, the longevity of any product depends on how it is used and maintained. 

Maximise the longevity of your Monaflex Heat Pads by following our best practice guide.
