Made from crushed volcanic rock, Heatshield Products Lava Shield Mat™ has heatshielding capabilities with a carbon-fibre look. This insulator helps to reflect and dissipate heat, making it perfect to be an airbox heatshield or heatshield barrier to protect the paint on your carbon-fibre/fiberglass hood. Due to the natural chemical and acid-resistant properties of basalt (a mineral from volcanic rock), Lava Heat Shield™ is excellent to use in harsh environments.
Lava Shield™ may be used on a firewall to shield radiant heat, and is also perfect to shield heat in transmission tunnels. Keep the look of carbon fibre but have the functionality of the Lava Shield™ heat barrier. It can be used with less than 25mm of airspace, but 12.5mm minimum is recommended. It is also better to use Lava Shield™ on applications where there is little airflow, making it a superior insulator to aluminium and gold barrier fabrics in these conditions. Lava Shield™ withstands 649 degrees C direct continuous temperatures and 1093 degrees C intermittent.
