Starlite was a material invented in the 1960s that allegedly withstood 10,000°C temperatures.

Here, NighthawkInLight shows his copycat of the secret recipe, withstanding a still whopping 2000°C at less than 1″ thickness.

The way it works: when exposed to high temperatures, it expands, creating a carbon foam barrier that pushes the heat away while forming an insulator.

The Recipe: 👇

2 parts Flour

1 part Corn Starch

1 part powdered Sugar

1 part Borax

1.5 parts Water

When mixed and formed and let dry, you have a fireproof tile with heat resistance claimed to be on par with alumino fire brick, while protecting against both insects and mold. 🤔
