Thermal Acoustical Barrier TABshield

Achieve superior thermal and acoustic performance under tough conditions.

A lightweight alternative to traditional metal heat shields, JBC’s TABshield patch series is easy-to-install, conformable to most shapes, and an ideal solution for a variety of targeted noise and heat suppression applications. Available in sheets, rolls, or die-cut to your specification, TABshield patches may be customized with pull tabs for easier liner removal, adhesive for ease of installation, embossing for better formability, and/or microperforating for improved acoustical performance.
