Our Heavy duty Lava turbo Shield is born from our #RaceTested automotive shield. In addition to taking the extreme heat from the most demanding application, out heavy duty turbo shield has some stainless steel mesh so it can handle the extra vibration that your heavy duty rig requires.
The HD Lava Turbo Heat Shield™ is a custom fit and uses extreme-temperature materials to keep heat in the hot side of the turbo where it belongs. The main advantage of the HD Lava Turbo Shield vs. the all metal stainless steel shields is greater underhood temperature reduction. You do not get the hot side to cold side heat transfer between the inner and outer metal layers.
This heavy duty turbo wrap has a rugged outer layer of our Lava Shield™ material that is 25 percent stronger than comparable fiberglass shields, giving a longer life span. The combination of stainless steel mesh and silica contact layer makes Lava Turbo Heat Shield™ capable of withstanding 1,800 degrees F continuous. We use a ½-inch-thick BioCool thermal-barrier inner pad sandwiched between the Lava Shield and silica mat.
The precision-fit design of this heavy duty heat shield turbo wrap means you do not have to trim or fit the heatshield blanket to your turbo housing, making installation a snap.
Turbo Shield Installation Tips:
- Wrap around turbo, and use included stainless steel springs on anchor hooks
- Use a pair of needle nose pliers to help your stretch springs to hooks
Q. My heavy duty turbo shield is smoking after it is installed, will it catch on fire?
A. No, smoking is normal. the material used are non combustible and the smoke you see are binder burning off from the textiles used, this is completely normal. The smoking will stop after a short period of time. It can last as little as a few minutes to a few days, it depends on how hot your turbo gets.
