Cobra Skin Exhaust Wrap - Heatshield Products
Exhaust Pipe Wrap - Cobra Wrap
Special weave makes it easier to wrap around bends, and gives carbon fiber look
Proprietary HPTC exhaust wrap coating is dark black
Can increase exhaust scavenging, resulting in more horsepower
Made in USA
Cobra Skin™ Exhaust Wrap uses the same HPTC coating as our Premium Exhaust Wrap, and features a special weave that makes it easier to wrap around bends in pipes and creates a carbon-fiber appearance after it has been installed.
Our HPTC coating allows Cobra Skin™ Exhaust Wrap to sustain 1,350 degrees F continuously. This thermal wrap for your exhaust system will increase temperature parameters, and remain flexible and strong. For most header wraps, the fiberglass will become weak and brittle at 1,000 degrees F, and typical coatings will extend the base temp to 1,200 degrees F, but the fibers will still become brittle. With our HPTC coating, the Cobra Skin™ has a higher rated continuous temperature of 1,350 degrees F, and the fibers remain flexible, so the wrap will expand and contract with the metal of the exhaust system. This ensures longterm maximum heat retention and increased wrap life.
The HPTC coating also gives Heatshield Products wraps increased abrasion-resistance even at 1,350 degrees F, and results in less fraying.

Do you have to soak exhaust wrap to install?>
Soaking a header wrap is not necessary for installation. In fact Heatshield Products recommends just dampening the wrap with a spray bottle. In many cases coatings need to be heat cycles before they cure. Soaking a wrap can wash off some of the coating before it is installed.
Does it matter which direction I start wrapping my pipes in?
It does not matter which direction you wrap your pipes in. We recommend starting at the cylinder head and working downstream. The reason for this is fatigue. Most people get a little tired the longer they are wrapping a pipe. For performance reasons it is best to have the tightest wrap near the cylinder head. Obviously we want the tightest fit all they way through the install, but fatigue is something to consider.
Brand X says their fiberglass wrap is rated for 2000F, whys is Cobra Wrap only rated for 1350F?
All fiberglass wraps have a base temperature of 1000F. With coatings and treatments, you can expand the operational temperature to 1200F. Our proprietary HPTC coating allows us to make a midnight black exhaust wrap and have a higher temperature of 1350F. Other companies will falsely advertise 2000F because they want to sell you something, we want to solve your problem.
