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 180°C without damaging the thermal barrier.
With three options weighing as little as:
- ZircoFlex® I – 0.46kg/m2
- ZircoFlex® II – 1kg/m2
- ZircoFlex® III – 1.5kg/m2
With options varying from:
- ZircoFlex® I – 0.25mm
- ZircoFlex® II – 0.5mm
- ZircoFlex® 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.
