Exhaust Wrap & Heat Protection

Exhaust Wrap & Heat Protection

Exhaust Wraps: The truth about Wrapping

DEI Technical Article (Issue 1.1)

I can't tell you the number of calls I get from customers who are interested in DEI exhaust wrap but are afraid that the exhaust wrap may damage their pipes. Though a credible concern, I'm not sure who started the rumor about exhaust wrap, but for some people this myth has been inaccurately embedded as common knowledge to many. Wrapping pipes with our exhaust wrap will not damage your pipes.* It will not make the metal brittle or promote any enhanced corrosion. I've yet to see a picture of a header, turbo down pipe, or exhaust pipe that was damaged by exhaust wrap as one would think that with all the information and images available on the internet someone would have been able to provide proof of such negative occurrences. I was really shocked after reading several forum threads from the "self-proclaimed know-it-alls" that consistently post replies in response to inquiries from other members citing a story or rumor rather than from personal experience.

THE TRUTH
Basically, every time you start up an engine the exhaust system pipes heat up and undergo an aging process that is so nominal it would take 50+ years to actually see any kind of change in the metals composition. Exhaust wrap does accelerate this aging process, but even so it could take up to 30+ years using exhaust wrap to see any real degradation of the metal "AND" even that would be nominal at best! The same applies to ceramic jet coatings so don't let anyone tell you otherwise (that it's better because it doesn't make a difference).

*NOTE
In rare instances rust and corrosion may occur on lower grade metals so be sure to use DEI HT Silicone Coating with your exhaust wrap to repel water and debris).

As with any product, DEI has made available product FAQ and Instruction sheets online in PDF format.
