High temperature fabrics, tapes, and systems are used for automotive heat shielding, thermal insulation, and fire protection applications on cars, aircraft, agricultural equipment, and other heavy machinery. 

Automotive heat shields like aluminized tapes and heat barriers are used to reflect heat away from fuel lines, hoses, the interior of the vehicle, and other components for improved performance and efficiency. Heat resistant tapes and custom insulation blankets are used in thermal insulation applications to improve fuel efficiency and operational performance while protecting vehicle operators from hot surfaces. 

In addition to offering off-the-shelf automotive heat shields and thermal insulation fabrics, Newtex also designs and manufactures custom, multi-layer heat shields and insulation blankets for agricultural equipment and heavy machinery.

For air and ground transport, fire-resistant fabrics and fire containment systems are used to prevent the spread of fire caused by hazardous cargo like Lithium-Ion batteries, flammable chemicals, or undeclared goods. Fire containment systems include pallet-sized fire containment covers, covers for intermediate bulk containers (IBC), and laptop fire containment bags.
