When used correctly, the Funk Cool Silver Tape can be used to dramatically cool intake pipes and in turn increase induction performance due to the cooler airflow. Silver tape can also be used to protect vital components or bulkheads from heat sink from engines, exhaust pipes and other components. See Funk's blog post to understand how the Gold and Silver Tape can work for you and see how it is used in many applications from Formula 1 to NASA space craft.
Funk's specially developed Silver Glass fibre heat tape can reflect away up to 70% of all radiant heat whilst working in constant and ambient temperatures of 200°C+. Rolls can help aid application around complex corners.
Ok, you are asking, so why silver? Why not any other reflective surface? Copper? Glass? Well silver states the best reflective qualities and so can reflect away outstanding levels of radiant heat. Funk Cool silver Reflective Heat Tape is capable of reflecting away around 70% of all radiant heat coming its way.
