Due to the laws of thermodynamics, anything that uses energy or performs work will inevitably produce a by-product in the form of heat. A car is no exception to this law and features various components which produce heat, some more than others. In most cases however, heat can have a detrimental impact on the performance of certain engine components.
In order to protect these heat sensitive components, there are a selection of heat shield products available in our range that are designed to reflect or contain heat. Engine bay temperatures can be particularly high and can cause issues with certain engine components. Keeping heat away from air induction systems and electrical wiring or components not only helps to improve the performance of an engine, but also reduces the risk of fire.
Heat can also be an issue inside the car too. Certain competition vehicles may suffer from heat caused by a central exhaust system or from hot engine components being near the bulkhead or firewall. Reflective material can be particularly useful to protect the driver from excessive heat, thus allowing for a greater level of concentration and comfort.
Whatever the application, there is sure to be a heat shield product to suit your needs. If you are looking for vehicle ducts for further cooling, be sure to have a look at the ducts and ducting hose section.
