Re: Engine cowling fire protection

Sounds like the liquid firewall that was shipped with the original kit. It seemed to work well on the firewall but I would think it would flake off the flexible cowling. I tried it on the exhaust pipes with dismal success. It is still covering my firewall.

Hi All,
Merry Christmas to you.
Under the upper cowling on my Tri, there is the remnants of some white substance which is flaking off, looks something like heavy weight dandruff. I suspect it was a fireproof protective coating in its past life. Does anyone have a similar experience ? The Fibreglass underneath it is in good condition. Is this the remains of a still valid process or is there a new material that is now used, like fibrefrax for example?
