This innovative material protects heat sensitive parts mounted in close proximity to high temperatures that would otherwise be damaged without appropriate protection.
Teknofibra is a unique material composed of a special surface of embossed aluminium, an exclusive black thermal material derived from Carbon Fibre with very high insulating properties and a specially developed adhesive layer that increase its strength with temperature.
The main applications of Teknofibra in Racing Cars are:-
It protects bodywork and other parts in close proximity to heat sources such as exhaust manifolds & exhaust pipes, turbo's and other heat sources.
It is a very good thermal barrier against heat and flames of the engine compartment and cockpit habitackle areas. ( Used in the world sports car championship by McLarren & Ferrari's to keep cockpit temperatures below the FIA ceiling of 30 degrees ) When applied to hot transmission tunnels it keeps driver feet & legs cool and cockpit temps low.
A good insulator placed between air box and throttle body allowing the flow of cool induction air and not allowing temp pickup from within the engine compartment.
Teknofibra protects fuel cells and keeps fuel temperature low when in close proximetry to hot exhaust etc.
Also protects shock absorber canisters and oil tanks keeping oils more stable.
Acoustically Teknofibra has excellent properties and lowers fatiguing decibels.
