Such an excellent protective layer while having to do soldering. Keeps the heat source from burning up the building material while soldering in confine spaces. It serves as a barrier for flame that can withstand 2500 degrees. The shield has two brass eyelet holes to put onto screws for hands-free soldering. I've used the MAPP torch and protects extremely. A must have! I used it while soldering a single handle shower valve.

The price is worth the confidence that you don't short change the time/heat you put into soldering a joint because you're worried about starting a fire. Worked just as advertised and easy to place in the work area.

I needed to Sweat Solder a pipe 3 inches from a water heater, and wanted to make sure it was completely protected. I tested this on a few of the other soldering points and there was virtually no heat transfer from my Map-Pro torch.
I also needed to sweat solder against some drywall and used this as well, with only about an inch between the wall and the pipe. It worked perfectly.
I highly recommend it, and wouldn't have been able to complete the job safely without it.
It is very lightweight, easy to tape against whatever you need.
