Engines and other machines generate a great deal of heat while they’re running and if not properly managed, this heat can make its way into all kinds of places it’s not wanted causing a whole host of problems. Everything from overheated vehicle interiors to premature gasket and seal failure can be caused by exposure to excessive heat over extended periods of time. Enter the heat shield.
While heat shields can take many forms, from a blanket of non-woven fiberglass insulation to a complete, engineered multi-layered composite like JBC’s TABshield thermal and acoustical patch, at its most basic, a heat shield is designed for one thing – to redirect or contain heat energy.
JBC has over 30 years of experience processing heat shielding and thermal management materials and our relationships with the key suppliers and end-users in this market makes us an invaluable supply chain partner. We custom die-cut and supply a wide variety of thermal management and acoustical solutions for manufacturers of on and off-road vehicles, industrial equipment and other heat-generating machinery.
