Car Builders Aluminium Heat Shields are the most effective way to control and manage radiant heat issues. Aluminium is the ideal choice of material for heat shields as it has a high thermal conductivity and a low emissivity rate. These products can successfully shield from continuous temperatures reaching 650°C (1200°F), reducing radiant heat by up to 90%. As well as being corrosive resistant, the heat shields are easy to work with. They can be cut easily with tin snips or scissors and simply folded and formed with a hammer on a square edge.

*Please note, these shields require stand off to optimise air flow

Pros- Can be fitted to heat source or protected surface. Can be mechanically fastened.

It can be effectively used in various applications such as:

  • Engine compartments
  • Exhaust systems
  • Under carriages
  • Industrial application 
  • Agricultural applications

Also available, stainless mounts for hose clamps to space shield off round pipe.

Embossed Aluminium Heat Shield FAQ

How do you make a homemade heat shield?
Making a homemade heat shield is quite easy. You need to purchase flat sheets of aluminium (our embossed heat shield sheets of dimpled aluminium) or copper and then using tin snips you can cut and shape it to form around your components. These heat shields need to be spaced away from the components as they will heat up, however they cannot emit that heat onwards.

Can aluminium be use as a heat shield?
The best material for a heat shield is one with high thermal conductivity. Aluminium and copper are the two best, whilst steel and bronze are the worst.
