Heat management under the hood is a critical task in the protection of sensitive electronics, components, and materials. Heavy
For most medium and heavy-duty truck applications, thermal fabrics are used for firewall insulation as well as the shielding of exhaust systems, manifolds,
The reduction of diesel gas emissions is also an application that is heavily reliant on high temperature materials and heat shielding given the elevated temperatures required to burn off particulate matter in the diesel particulate filter (DPF) during the regeneration cycle.
While internal combustion engines will drive demand for heat shields for the foreseeable future, we are also working on the development of heat shields suitable for alternative power sources besides diesel, such as hydrogen fuel cells. Heat shields for electric engines – especially those being developed for on-highway trucks – is another area in which we are developing new temperature insulation solutions.
