It is now possible to create structural heat shields thanks to ZircoFlex® FORM. This rigid, dimpled stainless steel sheet heat shield, combines Zircotec’s proven ceramic coating protection together with the strength and ability to form structures such as heat shields, boxes and bulkheads.
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 proprietary metallic black ceramic coating acts as a thermal barrier on the other.
of engine bay components, bodywork and vulnerable electrics from engine and exhaust heat.
Reduced heat soak to the cabin
to reduce reliance on heavy heat insulation materials and improve passenger comfort.
Fuel tank protection
that is easily fitted to complex structures with sharp bend radius and where there is a minimal package space.
High performance with minimal weight and thickness
to help meet stringent weight and efficiency targets. ZircoFlex® FORM offers a high-performance structural heat shield at minimal weight & thickness.
Ease of fitment line-side
with a thin aluminium-backed and ceramic foil that is easily cut and folded to shape, by hand or machine. The metal construction allows the use of mechanical fasteners.
A guaranteed supply line
for high-volume orders, with a proven track record supplying the worldwide motorsport industry.
Thermal insulation of silencer and catalyst units
to protect bodywork, hydraulics and other vulnerable components.
Ready to use
avoids lengthy design processes, which is particularly beneficial for testing and prototyping purposes.
ZircoFlex® FORM can be an advantage in a wide range of OEM applications. It offers a unique combination of high strength, low weight and high heat resistance.
