Metal ceramic elements boost hair straighteners' thermal attributes


The incorporation of metal ceramic heating mechanisms speeds up warming time and lengthens temperature retention.



  • Better thermal elements: Manufacturers are intensifying the use of metal ceramic heaters as these warm up faster and retain the temperature longer than the conventional PTC types. To illustrate, the latter normally take 90 seconds to reach 200 C, while metal ceramic variants require only 15 to 40 seconds.
  • Multifunctionality: Units that double as hair curlers are popular. Such models often feature specially designed heating plates. Select versions also have plates equipped with teeth and vibration setting to help untangle the hair.
  • Travel-friendly options: Suppliers are launching rechargable, foldable and cordless hair straighteners for increased portability. These typically run on alkaline, NiMH or Li-ion batteries.
  • Sales forecast: Amid difficult economic conditions in the US and the EU, enterprises anticipate flat income in the months ahead. To prop up sales, companies are keen on penetrating alternative shipping destinations such as South America, Japan, Southeast Asia and India.
