Silicon carbide (SiC) fibers mainly fabricated from polycarbosilane, a ceramic precursor, are applied as reinforcingmaterials for ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) because of their high temperature oxidation resistance, tensile strength, andlight weight. In this study, continuous SiC fibers used to fabricate rope-type flexible heating elements capable of generatinghigh-temperature heat (> 650℃). For high-efficiency heating elements, the resistance of SiC fiber rope was measured by 2-point probe method according to the cross-sectional area and length. In addition, the fabrication conditions of rope-type SiCfiber heating elements were optimized by controlling the oxygen impurities and the size of crystal grains present in theamorphous SiC fiber. As a result, the SiC fiber heating element having a resistance range of about 100~200 Ω exhibited anexcellent power consumption efficiency of 1.5 times compared to that of the carbon fiber heating element.
