Kendrick Film

As recently as April of 2007, Kendrick Astro Instruments touted how thin film elements (at that time used exclusively by Dew-Not, LLC for our Dew-Not heaters) were vastly inferior to their wire elements. To quote Kendrick:

"Q: What are the advantages of so called "thin film technology" in dew heaters?

"A: Actually there aren't any besides cheapening the manufacturing costs ..."

If this is true, then why do they make their new FireFly heaters from exactly the same type of heating material as Dew-Not?

"... The film has a limited life like a light bulb and can get brittle and crack with repeated flexure ..."

If this is true, then why do they make their new FireFly heaters from exactly the same type of heating material as Dew-Not?

"... Plus the manual crimping on the wire leads tends to be flimsy leading to malfunctions."

If this is true, then why do they make the connections to their new FireFly heaters with exactly the same crimp connectors as Dew-Not?

Also, why does the current Kendrick web site show incorrect photographs of thin film heating elements? Their own photographs show a custom designed Dew-Not heating element which they claim is their own, while showing a nearly 20 year old design heating element as "a competitor's"?

Dew-Not's founder, John Marstiller, has been designing and manufacturing thin film heating elements for over 30 years. During this time he has created products for such diverse applications as home heating, military thermal imagery, and been awarded over six US, and dozens of international, patents for this technology.

You decide. Is Kendrick being truthful in their comparisons of Dew-Not Anti-Dew heating elements? And if they are not being truthful about that, how can you be assured that anything they claim about their own heaters is the truth?

Dew-Not  - the original thin film, low amperage dew removal heating elements ... and still the best.
