Default Supplier and shelf life of 3M Fire Barrier 2000 Plus

Where did you purchase your 3M Fire Barrier 2000 Plus? The 3M pdf says the effective life is 12 months after manufacture. Anyone have any insight on this shelf life?

Try Home Depot, Lowes, or whatever bigbox construction store is local. Also, good electrical supply houses usually stock it, or something similar.

Any thoughts to using Vans heat reflecting material over the fiberfrax as a low cost substitution of stainless steel?

As stated previously, the big box stores only seem to carry latex based intumescent caulk, not FireBarrier 2000 silicone. Not at all what you want.

Any sort of shiny metal film over fiberfrax will reduce heat engine transmitted to the cabin during normal flight. An aluminum foil, however, would be totally useless as a fire barrier. Seconds after application of the standard 5" x 5" 2000F hotspot, the aluminum will evaporate. Then the binder will burn out of the fiberfrax, and airflow will blow the loose fiber off the firewall.

The link you provided does not specify what type of metal the heat reflecting material is.

Yeah the Vans website does not say what it's made of. It's intended for under the cowl. I just saw how cheap it is and was wondering if it could work in this application. Dan's assumption that it aluminum is probably accurate due to it low cost.

It's aluminum. Works great over fiberfrax to protect fiberglass and paint.
