This product is intended to be placed on surfaces adjacent to an exhaust, like a gas tank, to protect it from heat. I used it on the outside surface of my bike's muffler to protect my leg from burns when mounting and dismounting the bike. I cut it into tapered strips to match the taper of the muffler. The peel-and-stick adhesive is listed as high temp, and so far, 3 long days of hard riding, it is sticking to the hot muffler just fine. I put a narrow strip on the muffler, then a slightly wider strip over the first and then wider strips over them, so each of the four strips over laps the one below it by about 1/2 inch and the outer edges make contact with the muffler. The four layers insulate the muffler enough so that I can touch the hot surface briefly after a ride without burning myself. This is an excellent product I highly recommend.
