Starlite was invented during the 1980s by an unlikely source. Maurice Ward, a ladies’ hairdresser from Yorkshire, discovered the substance which can withstand heat of an almost unimaginable degree.
“We produced a material that was out of this world. It didn’t burn, it didn’t produce smoke and it intensified on its strength and its abilities”
A 1993 episode of Tomorrow’s World on BBC an egg was painted with starlite and then blasted with a blowtorch at 4,532 degrees fahrenheit. After several minutes, the surface of the egg was barely lukewarm, and the egg was totally uncooked inside.
