Heatshield designed the Cold-Gold Tape™ specially to shield radiant heat while having the kind of show-quality material you see on a car in a prestigious competition, such as the Detroit Autorama Ridler award!
Most “gold” thermal-barrier products on the market use “birthday balloon technology” to deflect heat. Mylar can look fantastic but it is the same material used in birthday balloons. Yes, it can reflect heat away, but so will aluminium foil at a fraction of the cost. Cold-Gold Tape™ is made from Heatshield’s proprietary TruGold™ thermal-barrier material. Cold-Gold Tape™ is comprised of a true gold colour reflective layer combined with a lightweight high-grade fiberglass cloth. The full fiberglass back (not scrim) can protect components in those critical seconds between the start of a fire event and full-flame catastrophe. The full fiberglass cloth backing cloth backing acts as a fire barrier even after the gold coating burns off. Giving Cold-Gold Tape another advantage of the plethora of balloon based barriers.
Cold-Gold Tape™ won’t degrade after long-term heat exposure. It can take constant ambient temps of up to 593°C, intermittent ambient temps of 1093°C. Cold-Gold Tape™ is not designed for direct heat contact, however it can shield over 90% of radiant heat with a 1-inch space from the heat source.
