Those insert into the pistons it appears. Might reduce heat transfer a bit. I use titanium shims behind my track pads. Not a cure all but every bit helps.

Turns out I just made a set - very easy. They are .020 stainless, 2 /18" in diameter and the tangs are 1/4" wide and 3/4" deep. My neighbor had some .020 sheet and I cut them out with tin snips - simple heat shields! thanks for your help.
