Heat-Resistant Panel
Hi mr_intensity,

Well, I don't have an expert on tap for this forum, so I'll have to take a shot at it myself.

I think the first thing to note is that there is no magic bullet (or material) for this situation - said another way, I don't think it's sufficient to simply try to block or reduce the flow of heat through the material. At some point, the energy _will_ transfer through it, no matter how slowly. I think you will need to incorporate some kind of idea to transfer the heat away from the area.

Also, it kind of depends on what you mean by 'easy' Smile. After consulting with and slicing the data found on this page:

It turns out that a few different types of stainless steel might be good options. From the table where 6.3 (W/m K) ... (uhm, watts per meter per degree kelvin? I have no clue Smile ) is the lowest listed, here are some of the steel values:

11.6  Steel - Nickel Chrome, 40% Ni, 15% Ni
14.3  Steel - Stainless, Type 347
14.4  Steel - Stainless, Type 304
15.1  Steel - Chrome Nickel, 20% Cr, 15% Ni
17  Steel - Nickel Chrome, 80% Ni, 15% Ni
19  Steel - Chrome Nickel, 15% Cr, 10% Ni
19  Steel - Nickel, 20% Ni
19  Steel - Nickel, 60% Ni

I think several of those are commonly available. Now you get to decide if they're 'easy' to machine Smile.

I'm wondering if there is a sane way to incorporate a means to move the heat away from the plate - perhaps combining a conductive material to transmit heat laterally out to some 'fins' to dissipate the energy, with a stainless steel base plate to act as a block.

So - if there are any experts out there, don't just laugh at me, jump in and offer some advice Smile.
