Revolutionary Ceramic Heat Shield
With options offering up to 85% heat reduction, a range of sizes and thicknesses, plus convenient adhesive backed versions – ZircoFlex is an effective and simple way to manage heat.
Offering superb thermal barrier performance at minimal weight and thickness.
The ZircoFlex ceramic material is produced as thin aluminium backed foil that is:
ZircoFlex is easily manipulated to suit various geometries, and can even be folded tightly through 180o without damaging the thermal barrier.
With three options weighing as little as:
- ZircoFlex I – 0.46kg/m2
- ZircoFlex II – 1kg/m2
- ZirocFlex III – 1.5kg/m2
With options varying from:
- ZircoFlex I – 0.25mm
- ZircoFlex II – 0.5mm
- ZirocFlex III – 0.85mm
So the material is robust and easy to handle.
And installed by hand or machine.
Using mechanical fasteners or high temperature adhesives (supplied separately by Zircotec)
- Protection of engine bay components from engine/exhaust heat.
- Bodywork protection.
- Reductions of heat soak through footwells, bulkheads etc.
- Fuel tank protection.
- Thermal insulation of silencer units etc.
Early applications for ZircoFlex® FOIL came from the motorsport sector, where the foil can be used to protect sensitive components from heat in increasingly crowded engine bays. ZircoFlex® foil is currently being supplied to a wide range of motorsport series including Formula 1. We are also supplying considerable volumes to the automotive and aerospace sectors where the foil is in demand as a rapid solution to thermal protection problems.
