HyloCool Thermal Barrier Gel is a water soluble blue gel that inhibits heat transfer and helps reduce warping, distortion, discoloration, and damage to coatings, especially on thin gauge metals. The HyloCool gel works as a phase change material and is designed to maximize the cooling from evaporation of the water contained in the gel. The effect lasts until the gel evaporates, leaving no mess behind.
==How It Works:== HyloCool is an aqueous gel that adheres to horizontal and vertical surfaces, even when heated, and absorbs heat. HyloCool gel works by trapping water on the surface of the substrate. Its additives and surfactants reduce the boiling point of the water, increase the surface area in contact with the metal, and hold the gel in place. The phase change from liquid to gas absorbs the heat. Under high heat, HyloCool will evaporate.
===Applications:=== *Welding - Use HyloCool to localize heat, and avoid heat stresses. Keeps the heat where it is needed, and away from where it will do damage. *Safety - Protect flammable material during welding or baking processes. *Masking - Protect electric wires, rubber gaskets, plastic components, or powder coatings during welding, soldering, or during baking/drying processes. *Racing - Can be used to reduce heat transfer from the engine to sensitive components or to the cockpit. Can also be used around head bolts when they are removed with heat (to weaken the threadlocker).
