More details

Firewall is a water based acrylic polymer, loaded with heat reducing ceramic spheres and thermal insulating glass beads. When applied to the sheet metal panels of a passenger vehicles, Firewall will reduce convectional heat and will insulate the passenger compartment. Because Firewall is loaded with vacuum sealed fillers it will also contribute to the reduction of airborne sound waves as well. It can be applied with brush, roller or spray gun and cleans up with water. 

Whether you are looking to quiet down your hot rod, or make your daily driver comfortable as a luxury car, Spectrum has proven to be the most popular & most efficient coating on the market.

Here is a quick lesson: 

Much of the reducible noise in any car is structure borne, meaning it comes from vibrations, like a wind chime. Unlike wind chimes however, our cars are not tuned to any specific musical frequency, so what we end up hearing is the road noise, engine rumble, and exhaust drone.

Stopping the vibrations on your cars metal panels is much like stopping a noisy wind chime with your hand. Once the vibrations stop, the noise stops.
Firewall is designed primarily to insulate from heat, but it kills virations in a very similar way as well; It stops the cars sheet metal from vibrating, thus, killing structure borne noise.

Firewall's key engredient, microscopic glass spheres, offer firewall an amazing level of thermal insulation. When applied at 3mm thick (about 3 coats) Firewall will insulate up to 200 degrees Fahreheit. 

What is the difference between Spectrum & Firewall?
Spectrum is a dense product designed to absorb lower-frequency structure borne noises, as dense materials are more effective at absorbing vibrations and sounds. Dense materials, however, are much better at conducting heat. Firewall Is much lighter, the key engredient being a load of microscopic glass spheres which are extremely poor conductors of heat, making them more suited to thermal insulation

How long does Firewall take to cure?
Like all water based products, Firewall will take 30 full days to cure but will be dry to the touch in 30-60 minutes depending on the ambient temperature and humidity.

When can I put my upholstery back in place?
We suggest that you allow a minimum of 24-48 hours for Firewall to dry before reinstalling your upholstery.
