Keep it Cool

KoolMat is a space age material used in thousands of Commercial, Industrial and Automotive applications. KoolMat is a composite material of silicone cured to the surface and weave of a high temperature fiberglass substrate. Weighing .72 per sq. foot and a thickness of .070. Because the silicone attaches itself to the textile, there is no separation, and no flow of air or liquids through KoolMat. The silicone offers a great resistance to abrasion, radiant heat, gasses and oils. No matter what temperatures. It is also an excellent sound deadening device. KoolMat is flexible and can be die cut to any shape or size and still perform like no other barrier. KoolMat is able to withstand 500 F of radiant heat and up to 2000 F with a ceramic backing. Used in 8O% of NASCAR and accepted by NHRA in October 1994.
