Sunlighten’s Heating Technology
We can't bottle the sun, but we can get close.
To stimulate health benefits, saunas need a source to emit high concentrations of peak infrared waves—not just heat. (In physics, this quality is “emissivity.”) That’s why Sunlighten worked with chemistry expert Dr. Ronald Lewarchik to develop our patented coating to create a highly emissive surface. This first-of-its-kind heater changed the industry. The result: a unique finish that maximizes the highest quality and quantity of infrared available—SoloCarbon coating. It’s on all our sauna heaters.
Sunlighten owns and oversees our process from design to manufacture to delivery. It begins with careful layer of wiring coated or protection. We cure each of the 3 layers at 160° C. No other manufacturers go to that length.
The SoloCarbon coating is a black ceramic pigment applied over the substrate. Signature and Amplify have a base of PET. mPulse® 3 in 1® uses a base of flexible Kapton polyimide for temperature control. It’s the stuff NASA uses to keep astronauts and equipment safe in space!1
The really special ingredient in our patented coating is the pièce de résistance: we sprinkle copper chromium to create that unique, near-perfect emissive surface only available with Sunlighten. This unique process makes our heaters 99% emissive, safe and effective.
In mPulse saunas, LED panels give you your own visible red light and near infrared light therapy tool, strategically placed for optimal therapy. Sunlighten used NASA research to develop an LED array of single wavelength Red Light and NIR with minimal variability and undetectable heat and light. A single blue LED light lets you know it’s on.
All this science helps us recreate nature's healing infrared to help your body. Every health benefit available to you is backed by research and study.
Safe, Comfy Heater Covers Boost IR
Every detail counts, and your ultimate safety and comfort is top of mind for us. All heaters must be covered as a standard safety hazard precaution. Sunlighten goes even further and provides non-toxic, infrared-boosting CELLIANT®-infused fabric as a protective covering on our SoloCarbon heating technology.
Designed and built with our proprietary technology and FDA-approved, non-toxic materials:

Be encouraged: the cardio benefits of infrared saunas offer a form of heart exercise.
Saunaing actually offers a real solution to getting your heart working without demanding physical strain. Studies support the value of a sauna session as a form of cardiovascular exercise that we call “passive cardio” because it allows you to sit back and relax while your heart gets pumping.
