As shown in this video Heat-Shielding Gel is a heat-shielding product that is available as a spray-on gel or as a more effective paste. It can temporarily shield virtually any solid material from temperatures up to an incredible 7500 ºF (4100 ºC). Once applied to a material, it acts both as a heat shield and as a heat sink, absorbing heat from the material. This material can make red-hot metals cool enough to touch in seconds and can keep fires from reigniting. Heat-Shielding Gel is non-toxic and environmentally safe.
Heat quickly causes the water content in Heat-Shielding Gel to evaporate, leaving a white crystalline material, which reflects heat away. The paste consists of about 2½ times more of this crystalline material than the gel has, making it suitable for applications where users need the most heat protection possible. When wet, the gel and paste can be cleaned up with a cloth or even wiped away by hand. After heating, it takes 24 to 36 hours to completely dry out and then can be cleaned up with a damp cloth.
Heat-Shielding Gel is mostly used during welding or soldering. Adjacent materials can be treated to reduce their exposure to heat and prevent damages. The work piece itself can also be coated, using it as a heat sink and preventing the heat from traveling inside the material and causing damage to fittings and fixtures. Main areas of application include plumbing, HVAC, automotive, auto body and jewelry design.
