Aluminized Heat Barrier is made up of woven silica with a flexible aluminized finish. The highly reflective surface of the material is capable of withstanding radiant temperatures in excess of 2000°F. The adhesive backed composite construction material can easily be applied to any surface or wrapped around a hose or wire to make a clean professional appearance.
Note: Clean surface before applying. Adhesive is rated up to 300° F. Don't apply to any parts of exhaust system. This product is designed to block radiant heat only!
Cost effective alternative to the more expensive options. Used it to replace old insulating material on inside of my cowling near exhaust manifold. Despite diligent cleaning efforts, if the surface you are putting this stuff on has ever seen oil, use good contact cement. The adhesive backing will not work.
Great stuff. Easy to work with and economical. Only recently installed in lower cowl, so cant rate longevity of product in use. Will adjust rating if insulation doesnt hold up over long time usage.
Adheres well in my fiberglass cowling. Was easy to apply. Used it to protect the fiberglass from the direct heat of the cylinders. Now lets see, how well it lasts in the long run.
I ride a KTM 1290 SA with a serious problem with heat radiating off of the engine head that is just below the seat. Talking to a custom motorcycle seat builder, he suggested this product and it works great! Im much more comfortable now, which means Im less distracted and likely a safer rider. Great flexible product thats easy to cut, shape and adhere to items that arent flat. Quick delivery, but really overpacked.
Good to work with
I used this heat material to protect the inside of a RV-9 cowl. It was easy to apply and I was able to work it around some slight bends. With a few relief cuts it looks great. The material is strong with insulation under the foil. The adhesive seems to be strong.
Covered Firewall as extra heat barrier and performs well!
I use this barrier to protect my fiberglass cowling from exhaust pipe heat. The adhesive is adequate to hold it in place when all residual oil is removed. This is done with a sequence of solvents. Once clean, l apply the heat shield material. Since the edges of the shielding is unprotected, from soaking up oil, I apply a high temp RTV to seal all the edges.
It is approx. 1/16" thick. It does not stretch, so some cutting may need to be done to go around compound curves. It is pliable around flat surfaces, just will not stretch around surfaces.
