Thermal management specialist Zircotec has announced that it will present production versions of first ever ‘structural’ ZircoFlex FORM heatshield at January’s Autosport International show.
The new, more rigid and stainless steel heatshield will enable engineers to benefit from Zircotec’s ceramic coating protection together the strength and ability to form structures. The first ZircoFlex FORM prototypes, designed to protect drivers and componentry from conductive and reflective heat issues, will offer higher levels of thermal protection than existing pressed aluminium and stainless steel products whilst retaining the lightweight and strength, will be on display at its stand in the Autosport Engineering Hall.
“The importance of Autosport International means we always aim to display new product and give engineers a chance to have a first-hand look and feel.” says Zircotec’s sales director Peter Whyman. “We hope to have a full range of FORM product, each able to solve multiple heat issues including both reflective and conductive sources, providing a compelling mix of strength, weight, structure and heat resistance.”
