Developed within the scope of the doctoral thesis of a scientist in Izmir, the low-voltage fabric that can emit heat for long periods of time to be used in many sectors in different sectors came to be used.

Dokuz Eylul University (DEU) Doctor Faculty Member Mustafa Erol in 2011 ‘Heat Emitting Polymeric Materials’ developed with his doctoral dissertation heat dissipation over long periods of time at low voltage fabric, a large number of countries in the process of demand for use in different sectors came.

As an alternative to heating fabric made with resistance wires, Erol has developed flexible and heat resistant fibers that are resistant to corrosion and breakage, and has succeeded in developing technology that provides less energy and longer heat than its counterparts in the USA and South Korea.


Erol, who won the Elginkan Foundation Technology Award for his scientific work, established Iltema with his partner Ayhan Prepol within the Dokuz Eylül University Technology Development Zone (DEPARK) with the support of TÜBİTAK for the application of fabric to different materials and marketing worldwide.

After completing the patent process, the company made its first introduction last year and demand from around the world began to come.

The Turkish technology, whose products were tested at the Technical University of Hamburg and proved successful, was exported for use in diving suits for the German army.

Product companies signed the protocol on the marketing of fabric an Englishman with a company that tests, now Turkey in the project to develop a company with seat heating pad produces seats for vehicles which require about 500 thousand dollars in imports heated seat pad to the superior features fully develop domestic alternatives. The company developed heated snow awning upon request from Kazakhstan.

The company recently launched another project in this area at the request of a Japanese-based electric automotive company.

Dr. Lecturer. Member Erol, AA correspondent, although the most widely used resistance wires are useful in terms of security, although it is important to safety, even in the electric blanket product, many deaths and injuries, he noted.

Emphasizing that they want the project to be low voltage and safer than others, Erol stated that they have achieved this goal thanks to the fiber that can be powered by battery or solar energy.


Erol said that heat conducting fibers are woven with yarns and that the structure of the fabric does not deteriorate, so there are no problems such as corrosion and fracture.

“We demand heating products in every environment where temperatures below 100 degrees are needed. First we applied to mountaineers’ clothes, we produced a vest. We can heat it for 8 hours with a 7.2 volt 6000 milliampere battery. There are also examples that we take this up to 11-12 hours. There is a demand from the company that produces seats and we will soon be able to travel on seats that are heated with this technology.

This technology stands out because electric cars are heated without engine temperature. The heat-dissipating fibers embedded in the seats and upholstery allow for in-car heating. We continue to work and cooperate in this field. The difference from competing polymeric materials is that we can heat up and cool down at lower voltages. This technology will increase the area of ​​use and exports will be heard. ”


Ayhan Prepol, the partner of the company, stated that they are working hard to market the developed system abroad.

Fabric first heated vest, waist belt, shoe sole, sleeping bags, electric blankets, mattresses, baby strollers and blanket products for disabled vehicles, reminding that they apply Prepol, began to evaluate the demands from around the world noted that the fabric applied by the Hamburg North University diving clothes. was tried by divers, this difficult test is critical to pass the critical importance of explaining Prepol, “Fabric, diving and mountaineer clothing, surgical drape, shoe soles to snow awning has proved itself in a wide range of use. We made our first fabric exports to Germany We have started production in accordance with an annual protocol of 250,000 euros. We will also start sending products to the UK soon. ” he said.

The technology is spreading faster than they expect, stating that they are planning to manufacture with wider opportunities related to the fabric they produce in textile workshops as a subcontractor, Prepol added that the product has been tested by Turkish defense industry companies.
