Silicone heatbed brand suggestion

I'm looking at 170mm square heater beds and want to buy from well-known brands due to various safety problems. Keenovo looks interesting but they are very expensive sad smiley.
İs there any suggestion??

Stop looking for name brands, they are always expensive

Whatever heater you use, I suggest you get it without adhesive and use high temperature silicone to mount it. The pressure sensitive adhesive they supply has a tendency to let go after a couple years of heating and cooling.

And don't mount it on a piece of glass.Use a thick aluminum plate to spread the heat.

Thanks for your answers, I'm in the prototyping process of a 3D printer, and cause of it, I have to use them commercially. Which supplier do you prefer or do you use?

I bought a 230V silicone heater from Shenzen Ali Brother Technology several years ago and it is still working well.

I went with a Keenovo, as its very recommended by the voron users

I have always used keenovo after I have had problems with the cheaper heaters. I have had a keenovo on my large machine for over 6 years and its used 6+ hours everyday. It is defiantly worth spending on a higher quality heater
