Heat shields are designed to protect structures from extreme temperatures by reflecting heat or preventing its transfer. A good heat shield needs to have high thermal resistance and thermal emittance, so it can withstand high temperatures and reflect and release the heat away from itself. Heat shields are commonly used in the automotive and aerospace industries.
Second Skin offers several types of engine and exhaust heat shields. Mega Block is temperature rated to 1000°F and is backed with insulating melamine foam for best-in-class automotive heat insulation. Thermal Block is temperature rated to 800°F and backed with a thin layer of hydrophobic melamine foam for spot heat fixes. Both heat shields are lightweight, 98% reflective, and include a peel and stick backing for easy application. If you are concerned about heat in your car, a heat shield can be a great solution to increase the longevity of your vehicle and your comfort level while driving it.
Second Skin’s heat shields protect structures from extreme temperatures by reflecting and insulating from unwanted heat. We use highly reflective, heat resistance materials to redirect radiant heat and insulate from heat transfer. No matter the heat issue in your vehicle, we can help you solve it and keep you running at peak performance.
A car heat shield is an important tool to protect key components and bodywork from heat damage. The heat given off by your engine and exhaust can reduce engine performance, increase the temperature in your car cabin, damage mechanical parts, and even reduce the expected life of your paint job. Applying heat shield material as hood insulation or firewall insulation will significantly mitigate these issues and help extend the life of your car or truck.
Second Skin has been making sound insulation and heat shield products in the USA since 2000. These high performance materials are used for automotive, home, construction, aerospace, marine, robotics, and military applications.
