Classic Car Restoration : Kool Mat



What is KoolMat

A high temperature composite insulation, consisting of densified silicone, cured directly into the surface and weave of a fiberglass mat. The materials are mechanically and permanently joined together during the manufacturing process without adhesives. This technique makes KOOLMAT® a truly homogenous one of a kind product which will not separate, tear, or easily puncture. KOOLMAT® is so unique that a US Patent protects it.

Versatile: KOOLMAT® handles extreme temperatures. The silicone side is suitable for continuous use at temperatures up to 500º F. The fiberglass side will withstand temperatures up to 1100º F. KOOLMAT® also performs well at low temperatures, remaining flexible down to -40º F.

Watertight: KOOLMAT's thick silicone rubber side provides a durable watertight surface. It insulates, as well as isolates from the environment. There is no better weather resistant material than silicone.

Durable: KOOLMAT® will not burn, dry out, heat crack, hold moisture, or wear out under normal use. Race driver's on a budget will often use the same KOOLMAT® insulation on several vehicles throughout many seasons. The thick silicone surface will not wear out or lose it's thermal characteristics under normal use unlike most foil faced materials which easily get scuffed and dirty, resulting in a loss of thermal performance.

Kills Noise: In addition to outstanding thermal performance, KOOLMAT® is an excellent sound deadener. Testing has shown KOOLMAT® to reduce noise by as much as 23 decibels. In automotive applications, road and engine noise are significantly reduced with KOOLMAT®.

Safe: KOOLMAT® contains no carcinogens like most ceramic blanket insulation, nor does it contain asbestos. KOOLMAT® is easy to install and safe to handle, making it one of the most versatile insulation materials available.

Does Not Burn: For aviation applications, KOOLMAT® easily passes Horizontal Flammability Specification FAR 23.853(a). Test results indicate 0 flame time, 0 burn length, and 0 burn rate. Lot certification can be supplied upon request. Not only does KOOLMAT® satisfy the test, it simply DOES NOT BURN!

A Radiant Barrier: For applications requiring a high performance radiant as well as thermal barrier, foil can be laminated to the fiberglass side of KOOLMAT®. Using a foil surface exposed to the heat source will reflect up to 99% of radiant heat providing additional thermal protection.
