Heat reflective tape is most commonly used in automotive applications to improve the performance of the engine or keep the driver shielded from engine heat. ColdGold™ aids in reflecting heat from the driver’s compartment to prevent heat exhaustion. The tape’s heat shielding ability also aids performance by protecting fluids, components, and intake air from extreme temperatures. The high strength tape leaves little residue on car parts. Using ColdGold™ Heat Reflective Tape can lead to longer component life and higher horsepower.
In dyno testing* on a completely stock Mazdaspeed Protégé, the application of ColdGold™ tape to the intercooler tubing provided a 3.5 horsepower increase!
ColdGold™ Heat Reflective Tape is used in a variety of applications and industries to shield high radiant heat. By reducing and preventing heat from direct contact with machines or products, this tape can assure quality performance and durability. Depending on its use, our heat reflecting tape can be purchased in a high strength or lightweight construction. High strength tape is ideal in applications where low residue is desired, while lightweight construction is most valuable for its property sustaining abilities among very high temperatures. Both tapes make use of a high-quality silicon adhesive. Uses for our reflective tape vary between industries.
Our ColdGold™ Heat Reflective Tape is used to deflect radiant heat from sensitive instruments in the aerospace industry. Military and commercial aircraft need to be kept cool, particularly around exhaust pipes, to assure safety and smooth operation.
Heat shielding tape is also used in the marine industry to protect a wide range of hoses, lines, tubes, pipes, wires, and cables from high temperatures or flames. ColdGold™ Heat Reflective Tape is up to the military standards required of marine vessels.
Heat reflective tape is also important in industrial processes when dealing with heat sensitive machines. ColdGold™ minimizes direct radiant heat, keeping machines cool to the touch and electronics running properly.
