    Possible Interesting Idea for Suppressor Cover / Mirage Killer

    Thinking about an Interesting Suppressor Cover Idea

    Silicone bands hold a silicone encapsulated, corrugated shield of ti or stainless tubes that contain a vacuum or ceramic insulating micro beads. Sort of like those powder candy filled straws.
    This shield would cover the top 1/3 or 1/2 of the suppressor body. Silicone dots or ribs on the underside would provide stand-off from the suppressor body and serve as channels to further funnel heat/mirage away from the top of the suppressor.

    Thoughts on this? Somebody already have something like this?

    Rough sketch to come soon.

    You could put silicon or ceramic foam between, but thats basically whats on the market now (silicon wraps).

    What would the benefit be vs current covers on the market?

    The metal tubes would be vacuum insulated
    So like mini thermos shields

    A vacuum does not stop radiant heat (think of the sun heating up Earth).

    Vacuum stops conduction.

    A shiny surface stops radiation.

    The combination of the two makes for good insulation.

    Rethinking this
    Found a carbon felt rated to block about 1800 degrees that’s only 3mm thick and could metallize one side and use
    Orings or bands made of kalrez 7075 which is rated for constant use up to 600 degrees
