ZircoFlex® is believed to be the first ever flexible ceramic heat shield material. It is the culmination of more than five years intensive research and materials science, using a new technology in which the ceramic material is sprayed in the form of thousands of individual platelets onto the surface of the backing foil.
While these platelets are close packed to provide comprehensive heat protection, their structure coupled with the forming processes allows the foil to be flexible, easily manipulated and bent to shape for use as an exhaust shield or other heat shield, adding to the uniqueness of this high quality and well developed product.
In its present form ZircoFlex® is suitable for applications with temperatures up t o 500°C. We do not recommend using this grade of ZircoFlex® I in direct contact with high performance exhaust manifolds or headers.
