Benefits of Embossing in Heat Shielding Applications
Design engineers today are looking to achieve optimal thermal suppression in a variety of applications without the use of traditional metal heat shields. Custom-designed solutions made of alternative materials such as lightweight aluminum or foil-faced insulation are increasingly popular.
Used in conjunction with these alternative materials, features such as calotte embossing are helping manufacturers achieve optimal performance, lightweighting, and thermal management.
This post highlights some of the reasons that calotte embossing is an important step to include in the design and construction of a lightweight heat shield.
