Enhanced Heat Shields for Better Performance
The inherent thermal resistance of DuPont™ Nomex® makes it ideal for high-temperature automotive applications, including heat shields and other under-the-hood applications.
Sheet structures made with DuPont™ Nomex® fiber are used as heat shields, as well as insulation shields for spark plug leads. Other under-the-hood applications where Nomex® helps provide value include flexible, high-temperature hoses, such as those feeding hot air to inlet manifolds. Inside automobiles, Nomex® fiber helps keep engine bays from overheating, radiator hoses from bursting, and windshield wipers from failing, even in inclement weather conditions.
