Heat wrap may help increase performance by retaining the heat in the exhaust pipes, this helps to expel gases quicker. There’s less radiant heat which can help protect other component and your legs… – those with side exit exhausts and motorbikes may relate to this one. Oh and it looks good too!
Length: Please choose the length required from the drop-down options
Width: approximately 2″/50mm wide
HOW TO APPLY:
To maximise its insulation capacity the aim is to wrap as tightly as possible.
Wetting the wrap can reduce fibre ‘fly’ and make the installation easier. Furthermore, on drying the wrap will set in a tighter, snugger fit.
Soaking heat wrap before application is strongly advised!
Starting closest to the exhaust port (engine), wrap a full circumference and tie with stainless steel ties or with jubilee clips. Thread the ties in a similar way to the plastic tie with the lump profile of the clasp on the outside. To achieve as tight a fit as possible on the stainless steel tail and push the clasp with a screw driver. Trim the tail to the desired length with pliers/snipers.
Apply the wrap by wrapping round the headers or exhaust manually and at an angle to overlap by 30%-50% of the width (especially on the bends) to ensure 100% coverage.
If the primary tubes become too close together, begin to wrap around both maintaining the 30% – 50% overlap.
Finish off with stainless steel ties or jubilee clips.
On initial application you may experience some smoke. This is to be expected as the starch applied to the yarns to aid the weaving process need to be removed. This will only occur during the initial application of heat and will cease after 10-15 minutes. Leave the motor running until the volatiles have been driven off. There is no possibility of the wrap catching fire.
HEALTH AND SAFETY NOTE: All our Exhaust wrap products are safe, non-carcinogenic or hazardous to health. However, contact with fibres can be itchy to some people so if susceptible we recommend safely glasses, gloves and a dust mask.
If you experience skin irritation this will only be temporary and can be reduced by washing of the hands in warm soapy water.
