Heatshield Products Releases Improved Lava Header Armor

New from Heatshield Products – their Lava Header Armor. This heatshielding wrap can withstand temperatures up to 1,800 degrees with a great carbon-fiber look. See more details below.

Official Release:

When Header Armor from Heatshield Products was introduced, it revolutionized the way people thought about header wraps. Now, the all-new Lava Header Armor brings the great looks of Lava Shield to this innovative product line. Made from crushed volcanic rock, Heatshield Products Lava Shield has heatshielding capabilities with a carbon-fiber look.

Lava Header Armor helps your engine produce more power by keeping more heat in your headers and exhaust system. That in turn increases exhaust gas temperatures and exhaust gas velocity for improved exhaust flow and efficiency for scavenging and other factors.

Unlike header wraps, which cover individual header tubes, the Lava Header Armor is a single shield that covers all primary tubes. As a result, it will not void most header corrosion warranties.

In addition, the Lava Header Armor significantly reduces underhood heat, which can help protect wiring and fuel lines, and allow your car to run cooler. Underhood temperatures can drop as much as 70 percent.

The specially formulated BioCool thermal-barrier material is one of the most efficient thermal-barrier materials on the market, keeping heat where it should be while not having the itchy drawbacks of less capable fiberglass-based materials.

This combines for a sustained temperature rating of 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit and intermittent temperature rating of 2,200 degrees Fahrenheit to make the Lava Header Armor one of the most effective thermal barriers you can buy. Its design makes installation a breeze, and you will not need to remove the headers. The Lava Header Armor can be removed and reinstalled as needed for maintenance and engine work.

Heatshield Products has engineered and manufactured heat-barrier products for more than 30 years, serving the performance and racing industry with the highest quality products at competitive prices. The company is family owned and operated, and is proud to make its products in the USA.
