Cowl Saver™ Baffle Seal Material with Bi-Flex™ Technology

Reduce airframe vibration, stop cowl and firewall cracks 

You can feel the difference in the cockpit!


Baffle Seal Friction Causes Airframe Vibration and Destroys Cowls

Typical silicone rubber baffle seals have a coefficient of friction among the highest of any known material. This friction transfers engine vibration into your cowl and firewall causing fastener fretting, fatigue, cracking, chaffing and airframe vibration.


Cowl Saver™ Baffle Seal Material has 30 Times Less Friction!

  • One side is silicone and the other is a low friction Teflon coated rubber unique to the patented Cowl Saver™ baffle seal material
  • Cowl Saver™ dramatically reduces the friction between your cowl and baffle seals
  • Half of the engine vibration you feel in the cockpit is from baffle seal transfer


Low friction Saves You Money!

  • Reduces transfer of vibration to the engine cowl and airframe
  • Eliminates cowl erosion
  • Extends baffle seal life
  • Reduces expensive cowl and cowl fastener repairs
  • Reduces fatigue and cracking in baffles, cowl skins and firewall
  • Cowling even goes on easier!
You will feel the difference! Satisfaction GUARANTEED!
36-month Money Back Guaranteed!


Unbeatable performance



Bi-Flex™ Technology
Bi-Flex™ Technology utilizes a laser engraved waffle pattern to provide the ideal flexible seal for maximum cooling, while retaining rigidity on the lower half of the seal to prevent the baffle seal from blowing past the proper seal position against the cowl.
