Gold combines with ceramic for heatshield

ThermoHold GOLD and its sister product ZircoFlex GOLD heatshield materials provide protection from both conductive and radiant heat sources thanks to Oxfordshire firm Zircotec.

It has developed a method to apply real gold to its ceramic products.

Engineers who previously had to rely on multiple products to protect composites and heat-sensitive parts from different forms of heat damage can specify a single coating or heatshield. Thanks to its unique combination of ceramic and gold,

ThermoHold GOLD (for composites) and its sister product ZircoFlex GOLD provide protection from both conductive and radiant heat sources thanks to the blend of ceramic insulation and real 24 carat gold providing 98% reflectivity.

ZircoFlex GOLD heatshield is just 0.17mm thin and at 230g/m² is half the weight of the current ZircoFlex product.
