I’m very happy to finally be able to show the heat shield in near production form and report the initial testing results. As you can see it was cold, snow is on the ground, and my fingers are frozen. All testing was static due to the snow and temperatures, however, the results are promising. The heat shield is ceramic coated aluminum. More details to follow.
The net results? IATs are 17 degrees Celsius cooler than without the shield. All of the data is below or being processed.
Please see my Facebook page for more (and higher resolution) photos and videos of the testing:
If you have an interest in this product let me know, I’ll be ramping up for production soon.
