There’s more to picking the right exhaust wrap for your application than just looking at the temperature rating of a given product. You’ve got to be aware of a product’s resistance to water, oil, and other solvents things on a car are typically exposed to, durability against friction of something rubbing up against the wrap, but one that often gets overlooked is the exhaust wrap’s ability to maintain an optimal amount of flexibility, even after numerous heat cycles, exposure to the elements, etc. That’s where Heatshield Products has spent extra development time in the design and makeup of our entire flexible exhaust wrap line.
The reason this is important is due to the natural laws of physics. When the metal piping of an exhaust system and headers heats from the hot exhaust gasses passing through it, that metal expands. In the reverse, after the engine is
