BISCO RF-120 heat shield is a reflective foam designed to aid in heat management applications. RF-120 foam both insulates against heat and reflects it away. This specialty silicone composite consists of a smooth aluminized fabric and our lower density BF-1000 foam. RF-120 foam is widely used in commercial, professional and military vehicles.


  • Available thicknesses from 0.098 to 0.197 in. (2.5 to 5 mm)
  • Reflective silicone heat shield grade
  • FMVSS-302 flammability rated


  • Both insulates against and reflects heat
  • Combines the strength of aluminized fabric with the flexibility and softness of BF-1000 foam
