In order to get an apples-to-apples comparison between silver and the slightly-embossed “gold” material that is in nearly universal circulation in racing, the materials were tested as follows: tapes were applied to an aluminum panel (0.063” 3003H14). A calibrated source of constant heat (1000F) was fixed 2.38” from the protected panel. Heat was applied to the front (tape-protected) side and times to 180F (82.2C) and 220F (104.4C) were measured multiple times on the back side of the panel and averaged. Tests were run with room ambient temperatures of 80-85F in still air
