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.

This is fantastic tool when you need to solder a pipe next to wood. Used for years and bought another for more coverage. The material is thick and retains its shape. Can tuck into a corner or around another object to protect from excessive heat. Few times I've had to put a drywall screw through it to keep it pinned in the corner but didn't seem to damage the effect of the heat shield.
