Heatshield Products Color Sleeves™ are an excellent way to protect wires, fuel lines, brake lines and more from thermal exposure while enhancing your vehicle’s appearance. The special weaving of the car heatshield allows it to expand over fittings during installation and return to its original size. Heat shield sleeve coatings can withstand 1,200° F continuously. Rolls are 25 feet in length and have an adjustable inside diameter from 5/16 to 7/16 inch. Fasten using Thermal-Tie™ or hose clamps. Heatshield Products thermal-barrier color sleeves are available in red, blue, yellow, black and tan.
HP Color Sleeve Installation Tips
- To expand ID of sleeve, bunch or shrink the overall length of sleeve
- To decrease ID stretch overall length
- Secure ends of sleeve with Thermal-Tie, clamp, wire, or high temp electrical tape
PRO TIP - As provided by Bryan Fuller of Fuller Hot Rods, use some heat shrink tubing on the ends to give it an OEM look.
Q. Will the Hot Rod Sleeve?
A. No, Hot Rod Sleeving is made from a noncombustible fiberglass, even if surrounding fluids combust, the sleeve will not burn, and whatever is inside it will not burn.
Q. How do I get the sleeve to expand over fittings and terminals?
A. Compress or “bunch” the sleeve length wise, and stretch the opening of the sleeve then slide over. It may also help to coat fitting or terminal with silicone or dry graphite spray before sliding over. To decrease the id of sleeve after it slides over fitting/terminal pull on both ends of the sleeve to stretch the length.
