Heat Reflective Films

These films are made from a lightweight aerospace material. They have a fire resistant, pressure sensitive adhesive which meets or exceeds the FAA 12-second vertical burn requirement. The peel strength is about 10 #/inch when pulled at 180 degrees. These films are easy to install and remove. They are also easy to repair since the film adheres to itself.  They are extremely versatile because they can easily be cut and formed.
