    Whether your vehicle has a carburetor or fuel injection, vapor lock can bring it to a standstill, causing hours of frustration. If you’re a racer, it can put the car on the trailer well before you’re ready to leave the track. But proper use of thermal barriers can prevent vapor lock, no matter how hot the day gets.

    Vapor lock happens when the temperature of the fuel heats up enough to transform it from liquid to vapor. And since fuel pumps are designed to pump liquid, not air, vapor lock effectively starves the engine of fuel. Without the proper volume or pressure of fuel, the car will run rough or completely stall. Vapor lock typically happens during summer months, when high outdoor temperatures are combined with high engine and exhaust heat. And high altitude also makes a vehicle more prone to vapor lock.

    The solution is to protect the fuel lines from getting hot in the first place.

  2. Introducing Cold-Gold Shield™ – Great Heatshield Performance and Good Looks that Last!

    The Cold-Gold Shield™ from Heatshield Products was specially designed to protect against and deflect radiant heat, as well as look like the kind of show-quality material you would see on a car in a prestigious competition, such as the Detroit Autorama Ridler award! And it’s designed to be easily cut with ordinary scissors. No matter what area or shape on the vehicle, or how tight the clearance is, you can install Cold-Gold Shield™ with minimum fuss.

Cold-Gold Shield™ provides true thermal protection, including against direct exposure to flames. Made from exclusive TruGold™ thermal-barrier materials, Cold-Gold Shield™ won’t degrade after long-term heat exposure. It can take constant ambient temp
