ZircoFlex® – Revolutionary Ceramic Heat Shield

With options offering up to 85 percent heat 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 ZircoFlex ceramic 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.
