Graphite Coated Fiberglass Tape
Constructed from a high temperature base fiberglass tape with graphite coating and heat treatment to clean the sizing and organic content.
Ideal tape used to wrap manifold ,header, turbo and exhaust
Used in places where no smokes allowed
Highly flexible and minimal shrinkage
Used at 750 degree C continuous, short time in 1000 degree C
Manifold and header wrapping is widely accepted as standard practice for performance auto and racing applications. There are two reasons for this.
First, by adding an insulation layer around the exhaust gas piping, it keeps the temperature of the gas from dropping, which means the density of the gas is kept lower longer, and lower density means easier flow through the exhaust system. Easier flow means more horse power due to reduced back pressure. Retaining heat in the exhaust flow, resulting in faster exhaust gas flow, also results in higher turbo charger spool speeds, resulting in a gain of horse power.
Second, wrapping exhaust system components also reduces the temperature of other under-hood components and systems, reducing both radiated heat and convective heating of electrical components, intake air, fuel and hydraulic hoses. Reducing under-hood temperature also helps reduce hood paint thermal damage.
