Heat shields

Wärmeabschirmung

Powerful heat shields are required for heat emitted near the powertrain/engine compartment, e.g. from exhaust systems and catalytic converters. Heat shields made of stainless steel, aluminium or special material composites reflect or conduct radiated heat sideways, thereby providing insulation against heat transmission. In addition, metal sheets with acoustic effects absorb sound. The base, insulating and cover layers are joined using a variety of processes.
