Heat Shields & Insulation Shields

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.


  • Nomex® XF Flame Barrier

    Nomex® XF is a unique material that helps protect aluminum fuselage aircraft by providing a robust, durable and lightweight flame barrier that can help prevent outside fire from penetrating an aircraft cabin, allowing passengers additional time to escape such a hazard.

  • Nomex® Fibers

    DuPont™ Nomex® fibers are heat- and flame-resistant, and are used in protective fabrics, garments, insulation, and other high-performance applications to help provide protection to millions of people and processes worldwide.
