Aluminum Heat Barrier

Aluminum Heat Barrier

The 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. This product can be installed using standard rivets with a backup washer or weather strip adhesive. The use of clamps or straps such as Thermo- Tec's Snap Strap can be used to hold the blanket in place for manifolds or exhaust systems.

Fiberfrax Adhesive

Fiberfrax Adhesive

 (2)
QF180 high temperature white glue provides a maximum continuous service rating of 1260 degrees C. Possesses good adhesion, thermal reflectance, dielectric strength, hot gas erosion resistance and effectively resists wetting by many nonferrous molten metals. Apply with brush or spray, covers 13-25 square feet. Apply to fiberfrax first and also to other surface if desired. Reduce with clean water. For use with fibrous materials such as wood (Not recommended for use on metals).

Fiberfrax Firewall Material

Fiberfrax Firewall Material

 (2)
Noted for having exceptionally low thermal conductivity and good handling properties. Will with stand 2300 degrees F. Its highly uniform structure assures equal thermal conductivity throughout and a smooth surface provides advantages in seal, gasket and space applications. 24" wide. 1/16" weighs 1oz. p/sqft. 1/8" weighs 1.6 oz p/sqft. Available in 1/16" or 1/8" thickness. Sold per linear ft.

One Piece Firewall Shield

One Piece Firewall Shield

 (5)
Single shields are used where the cable or wire may pass through the hole. Ream pilot hole in single piece shields oversize for the size grommet used. Two piece shields are used over cables or wires with large end-fittings or existing installations. Actual hole size in 2 piece shields is slightly larger than indicated to prevent chafing cable. Dimple shields accommodate rubber grommets up to 7/8" outside diameter. Shields may be installed with screws, bolts, plate nuts or rivnuts. Install cable and grommet in firewall, center shield on cable, drill attach holes, Shields have 5/32" mounting holes. Note: if more than one cable passes through grommet fire resistant sealant must be applied to grommet. Seals are designed to protect sealing ...

Soundproofing Foam

Soundproofing Foam

 (5)
This material is a closed cell vinyl/nitrile insulation foam. It is excellent for use any where in the cabin, firewall or bulkhead. It does not absorb water or oil and can also be used for heat insulation. This soundproofing insulation is also fire retardant and meets FAR25.853b, making it suitable for aircraft use. It is black, smooth on the inside, and can be installed using waterproof contact cement. Simple to install by cutting with an electric knife, scissor, or sharp knife. 48" wide roll, sold by the linear foot. All sizes except 1/8" are certified. Burn test available upon request.

Kool Mat Insulation Mat

Kool Mat Insulation Mat

Composite material of silicone cured to the surface and weave of a high temperature fiberglass substrate, weighing .72 lb/sq ft with a total thickness of .070". Because the silicone attaches itself to the textile, there is no separation, and no flow of air or liquids through Koolmat. It has great resistance to abrasion, radiant heat, gasses and oils, no matter what temperature. The silicone side will withstand continuous temps up to 500ºF; the fiberglass side to 1100ºF. Flexible and easy to install. Meets requirements of FAR 23.853(a) for flammability. Kool Mat also is an excellent sound deadener, reducing noise by 23db. .070 thick x 30" wide, sold by the running ft.

Cool It Insulation Mat

Cool-It Insulation Mat

Use the Cool-It Mat to battle excessive heat and noise that penetrate the driver compartment through the firewalls and floorboards. It is also perfect in doors, under hoods, and above transmission housings. The Cool-It Mat is composed of resin-bonded silica blanketing insulation sandwiched between a Mylar facing on one side and a foil facing on the other. The highly-reflective Mylar reflects heat away from surfaces, while the foil side is orientated away from the heat source to conduct any penetrating heat across its surface thus providing the ultimate in heat protection. The silica blanketing is a dual-density composite and is the main sound insulator. It is easy to trim and can be applied with the push-in fasteners provided or any ...

Black High Heat Coating

Black High Heat Coating

 (2)
To finish off a clean and well-protected Exhaust Insulating Wrap application it is recommended to use the Hi-Heat Coating. The coating will protect the wrap from abrasion and harmful liquid spills. Extra resins and binders toughen the surface, extend the life of wrap by protecting it from friction, and seal the pores to minimize the penetration of harmful liquids. The coating also works excellent as a paint directy on metal surfaces. The 11 oz. spary coating now comes in three colors - black, aluminum and new copper.
