Heat-Block compound is formulated to eliminate and protect metal against heat damage and discoloration during brazing, soldering, welding and other procedures. To use, apply the heat-absorbing paste from the container onto the metal. It will absorb and dissipate heat, preventing it from traveling through the metal surface. The material can be used to protect parts in close proximity such as pipes, valves and internal gaskets that could be damaged during installation or repair work requiring heat applied by torch or a soldering iron. The reusable water-based compound stops heat-related damages such as buckling, cracking, warping and discoloration.
