Aircraft Baffling on Car?

Anyone ever considered using aircraft baffling material for use on their car? At a first quick glance, it looks like it could be used to build an air dam or boxing in a radiator. Finding a material with enough stiffness would seem like the limiting factor.

Example:
SILICONE BAFFLE SEAL - IRON OXIDE RED from Aircraft Spruce

This particular aircraft supply website has several choices for ducting, but few seem cheap enough to consider for brake cooling.

If you have the budget using Fiberglass honeycomb panels are light and stiff.
This is the same thing you walk on in a commercial aircraft that separates you from your bags below.
