    Default Review Heat insulation by Car builders

    hi

    Heat shield Peel and Stick --Light
    Car Builders --maker

    Delivery --as requested on time
    Cust service -- Easy to deal with

    Item Peel and stick reflective foil with fibre glass or similar back with sticky back

    I was concerned about puncture resistance ,engine bay OK , if underbody stones will damage it.

    Job --mould around heater box ,fan,a/c unit
    templates made out of paper
    easy to cut foil with good scissors ,need to be sharp
    Join all odd shapes/ pieces with foil tape
    Roll all joins with roller ,,far better adhesion and appearance

    Sealing of exposed fibre edges can be done with foil tape ,,very highly recommended ,far better for durability

    foil is a bastard to peel at times ,,use a razor blade
    foil does not like to be restuck . Glue effectiveness is lost quickly .

    I purchased 1mtr x 600mm light with 1x foil tape and 1x roller . Used 3/4 of the sheet

    Expect the fibre backed foil should perform insulate better than either foil only or foil and foam versions . These are cheaper also for a reason .

    8.5 outta 10
    For a Holden that had almost no insulation installing this should be a great improvement .

    I use the ACL RACE stick or screw on stuff ...
    very similar to what Holden use in engine bays next to zorst manifolds
    or down the back with plastic wheel wheels (against the zorst mufflers there)

    Shapes/bends easy in the hand... I use it on the race car (between fuel lines and exhaust etc)

    hi
    Worth looking at

    48mm x 50mtr x .08 thick double the thickness of other tapes NON reinforced
    https://www.bunnings.com.au/ametalin-48mm-x-50m-insulation-ducting-tape_p0810227

    Yes u can get reinforced tapes but these are fairly rigid

    Wider but light duty tape [ good for weird shapes ]
    50mm x 50 mtr x .04 thick Non reinforced

    ..........................
    do NOT use that anywhere near a decent heat source (aka an exhaust manifold etc)
    it melts.. and drips black shit everywhere

    I say that from personal experience

    hi
    Smitty
    Its not a bitumen lined ,but yes only has 100cel limit . I assume engine bay ok but no where near a manifold etc .
    Is it the same stuff ,you sure ??

    How close was yours , if in fact its the same stuff .??
    The peel and sticks donot inspire alot of confidence for anything even close to exhaust I must say



    The peel and stick Car builders tape is only rated to 110cel
    The light peel and stick is rated to 240cel
    Perfect for a heater box etc

    Just went and purchased some Jaycar tape to finish the job bout 1mtr is all i need ,hope it works . Poor quality stuff definitely has me worried .

    Smitty do u have a link to the ACL insulation ???
