Up armor your heat shield protection with Heatshield Armor™ exhaust heat shield. The outer armor allows it to be cleaned after installation, gives it a long lifespan, and also makes Heatshield Armor™ resistant to the elements. The inner ceramic liner makes it capable of withstanding 1800°F continuous, which allows this heat shield to be placed directly on headers, turbo manifolds, down pipes, and exhaust pipes. It is flexible, easy to cut and install. Our Heatshield Armor™ keeps heat in exhaust system which creates a scavenging effect, allowing exhaust gases to flow out of the system faster. It also prevents radiant heat from entering the driver’s compartment and stops radiant heat damage to other vehicle components. Heatshield Armor™ can also be used as a thermal barrier, simply by facing the aluminized side towards the radiant heat source. For insulation applications use Thermal-Tie™, stainless steel hose clamp, or wire to fasten. For use as a thermal barrier applications use high temperature spray on adhesive, screws, or rivets to fasten. We reccomend the ½" thick Heatshield Armor™ for forced induction and racing applications.
