Extreme Stainless Steel Heat Shield to Stop 70% of Heat
This heat shield insulation material is easier to install than exhaust wrap, it also reduces more heat from your exhaust pipes and components. Extreme Stainless Steel Heat Shield which can stop exhaust heat up to 70 percent and it is much easier to install.
Rugged Insulation Material
The outer armor of Extreme Stainless Steel Heat Shield is resistant to the elements is a 4 mil this aluminum, giving the exhaust heat shield a long life. We our exclusive BioCool insulation material as the inner pad, bonded to a heavy-duty foil outer layer using a proprietary process. This makes it capable of withstanding 980 Celsius, which allows this heatshield to be placed directly on exhaust systems, turbo manifolds, downpipes and diesel particulate filters . Because this heat shield installs directly on the exhaust system components, it performs better than the clamp-on standoff heatshields that allow heat to escape because they are set above the pipe and not directly insulating it.
Extreme Stainless Steel Heat Shield also offer superior performance over an all metal exhaust heat shield. The all metal heat shields have conduction with one hot side and one cold side: With Heatshield Armor, there is no metal-to-metal contact layer it uses a thermal break to create real cold side on this heat shield.
Safe – No Harsh Fibers
BioCool is a non-caustic, non-flammable bio-soluble silica thermal insulation material. It does not cause itching and won’t smoke or smell the first time it is heat-cycled. This exhaust heat shield material is flexible, easy to cut (you can use a pair of heavy-duty scissors) and may be cleaned after installation.
Extreme Stainless Steel Heat Shield is one of the most effective, efficient thermal barrier materials on the market. Its specially formulated BioCool material reduces the amount of heat an exhaust pipe radiates up to 70 percent. That heat is kept in the pipe/exhaust system, helping to improve exhaust system performance through increased exhaust gas temperatures (EGT) and exhaust gas velocities.
Because it is so efficient at keeping more heat in the exhaust system, if you were to fully insulate and exhaust pipe with Heatshield Armor, it would contain so much extra heat most exhaust pipes would surpass the thermal limit of their steel alloy. This causes the pipe to start degrading and rusting, eventually ending in failure with the pipe basically dissolving into a powder of rust particles. This is why you often see cheap exhaust headers and exhaust pipes start rusting and coming apart after a short time because the steel alloy they’re made from doesn’t have a high enough heat rating to withstand the extra heat exhaust insulation contains in the pipe.

Because ofExtreme Stainless Steel Heat Shield exhaust insulation’s efficiency cutting up to 70% of radiated heat from exhaust pipes, it’s important to leave a gap between the ends of the insulation during installation so the exhaust pipe has just enough uninsulated area to “breathe” and dissipate a small amount of heat so the pipe doesn’t exceed the maximum sustained temperature rating of the pipe’s steel alloy.
Not fully wrapping an exhaust pipe or header in Extreme Stainless Steel Heat Shield exhaust insulation, leaving a gap between the ends of material allows the pipe to “breathe” and dissipate a small amount of heat. While the insulation still significantly reduces the radiated heat coming from the exhaust pipe, the small amount the gap lets out helps to keep the exhaust pipe from getting too hot and surpassing its maximum sustained temperature rating.
