Heat reflective / resistant tape?

I'm looking for good heat reflective / resistant tape. It will be used on various different parts, such as under the car where my heat shields used to be (had to remove them for the new drive shaft), on my boost tubes and other areas under the hood.

I've been reading that there are a lot of imitations out there that do an OK job but I'm looking for a good brand not just OK. Does anyone have any experience / advise / feedback on any brands?

I just was reading about design engineering's Cool-tape. I can get it local which is nice, as opposed to having to order it online and wait on shipping.

Make sure the adhesive is suited for high heat too. Kind of annoying to spend money on heat tape, only to have it fall off because the adhesive can't handle the heat.

That's really all the input I have.

Yeah I thought about that. The "cheaper" brands have crappy adhesive and will just fall off soon. Obviously something I want to avoid and I have little knowledge on this subject.

I have always used DEI gold tape on my cars with good results.
