ZircoFlex® – Revolutionary Flexible Ceramic Heat Shield.

With options offering up to 85 percent surface temperature reduction, a range of sizes and convenient adhesive backed versions, ZircoFlex® is an effective and simple way to manage heat.

Offering superb thermal barrier performance at minimal weight and minimal thickness. The material is produced as thin aluminium backed foil that is:

  • Flexible – ZircoFlex® is easily bent and manipulated to suit different geometries, and can even be folded tightly through 180o without damaging the thermal barrier.

  • Lightweight – ZircoFlex® I weighs only 0.46kg/m2

  • Extremely Thin – at 0.25mm overall needing only minimal space for installation.

  • Metal Backed – so the material is robust and easy to handle.

  • Easily  Cut – and installed by hand or machine.

  • Easily Fixed in Place – using mechanical fasteners or high temperature adhesives (supplied separately by Zircotec)

Current Adoptions

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.
