Bonnet Insulation

Hi all, my ED is missing the bonnet insulation and I was wondering does it need to be replaced urgently? What purposes exactly does it serve.
I imagine it would protect the bonnet from engine bay heat, but does it do much else?

Its insulation, when your engine gets hot the heat can cause the paint on the bonet to crack so id replace it asap.
