Heating cables for car seat and panel heating

Car Seat Heating
To increase the comfort of vehicle passengers, heating cables are introduced into heating elements and panels close to the driver and passengers.
Bekaert has developed highly durable and ultra-fine heating cables that can be integrated into car seats and panels to ensure fast and reliable heating.
Bekaert offers an extensive range of fine heating cables for car seat and panel heating:

  • Bekinox® VN: Made from ultra-fine stainless steel microfilaments, these are the most durable on the market
  • Bekiflex®: Steel core with an outer layer of nickel, zinc or copper
  • Bekiflex® Hx: Helix cables with a hybrid structure combining a textile core and conductive wires - new - 


Fast, reliable heating

A wide electrical resistance range (0.05 to 200 Ohm/m) and high efficiency lead to reliable and fast heating.

Easy to process & integrate

A high degree of flexibility makes them easy to process and integrate into car seats and panels.


High tensile strength and corrosion resistance lead to long-term durability for the lifetime of the vehicle.
