Inconel (sp?) if you can get it.

Also the metal firewall liner on new cars.

It looks like waffle print metal. Sounds lame, but it's the best description I have Joe. :)

It insulates from heat very well from everything I have heard.

Check Allwayzsideways's project thread for inconel info.

I've seen some pretty nice setups using a big stainless steel pot. Yes, like for cooking. You cut it and use the round sidewall part as the heat shield. But it does depend on what you're trying to protect / shape.

Here's some threads I found on the cooking pot heat shield. Honestly, I think these look amazing. I might even do this just for the heck of it. These are for turbo applications however can be made to work with anything you are trying to shield that is round.

That's an expensive heat shield.
