These insulative strips are great for anything that gets REALLY hot! They are able to withstand extreme temperatures to +2300 F . We use them on our extruders to insulate the heater block to keep heat in to allow for more conisistent extrusion. There is no adhesive backing so another method of adhering them is required.

Will update review in 1 month.
Was able to cut to size for my hot end heating block. I only used 1 layer thick. Cut a piece for the hot end to push through. I made longer piece to wrap around the block.
Used Kapton tape 1/4" wide strips.
I just heated with my dual 1.5Watt blower fans and shroud at 100%. There was no lag or struggle to reach the temp. Nothing smoked or started to burn.
great material. will do a print and update how well this insulator works. But so far. I am so stoked. worked just as I had hoped.
Applying this insulation along with the insulator tape saved my 3D prints.
I would recommend using it if you do not have insulation on your hot end.
Then it hit me. Stop messing with the fans, and do something to insulate the hotend! First I tried making a metal cage to block the air from the fans. Then it occurred to me that there must be some sort of insulative material I could wrap around the hotend, so that the carriage-mounted fans could be operated at full speed and yet not affect the hotend temperature one whit. Quick search on Amazon and I found this product. I have to say it works most excellently.
I have two 40mm double-height sunon brand fans. They put out prodigious quantities of CFM. One fan alone, running over 37% of full speed would cool a hotend from 200C down to a temperature below which plastic would flow. After wrapping my hotend with this material, I am able to run BOTH fans at 100%. Switching from 0% to 100% does result in a momentary drop of 1 degree C, which is quickly recovered back to full temp.
I might add that I do not even have the entire hotend covered by this material, just the outward facing facets. I have left the top and bottom of the hotend uncovered. I would expect that covering these would give even better results, though the results I am getting now are more than satisfactory. I highly recommend this product if you are running a 3D printer with an E3D V6 hotend. I used strips of Kapton tape to cover the material and adhere it to the hotend.
Please note that the image shown is not what you receive. The product is for a 12" strip of material, which is more than enough to cover several hotends, but it's nowhere near as much as is shown in the photo.
Photo is a little misleading... you're only buying a 12" length, not a roll of it.
