ZircoFlex® FORM

Zircotec’s structural ceramic heat shield combines our high-performance ceramic coating technology with the ability to form structural heat shields at minimal weight.

Formable Ceramic Heat Shield

ZircoFlex® FORM is a rigid, thin embossed stainless steel, patented heat shield material, coated on both sides with Zircotec’s proven ThermoHold® ceramic coating. ZircoFlex® FORM is supplied as a flat panel for customers to form in-house. The material is capable for use as a direct contact or offset heat shield.

ZircoFlex FORM delivers a compelling mix of strength, weight, structure and heat resistance. The yellow gold finish on one side increases heat reflectivity, whilst our metallic black ceramic coating acts as a thermal barrier on the other.
