Product information Ceramic exhaust wrap 5cm x 10m x 2mm
The Heat Shieldings ceramic exhaust tape is manufactured from aluminum oxide silicate fiber yarn instead of standard glass fiber. This fiber gives the product a very high refractoriness and toughness. Ceramic exhaust tape can withstand higher temperatures up to 1250 ° C compared to normal glass fiber and has a longer life.
Important: Ceramic fiber contains about 15% organic fiber. When the fibers are heated, the organic fiber in the product can gradually turn black as the temperature rises, smoke will be generated. This is a normal phenomenon and does not affect the use. As the temperature continues to rise, the product will gradually turn white again and the smoke will disappear.
Good ventilation is necessary when using this wrap.

Ceramic fiber tape is used for insulating covers or shields, wrapping cables or pipes, expansion joints, seals or gaskets for high temperatures. Ceramic fiber tape is used in the following sectors:
Aluminum and steel mills
Boiler insulation and sealing
How much insulation wrapping do I need?
Depending on the diameter of your exhaust, you require the following quantities of wrappings:
- 60 mm diameter: 6 meter insulation material for every meter of exhaust
- 90 mm diameter: 9 meter insulation material for every meter of exhaust
- 120 mm diameter: 11.5 meter insulation material for every meter of exhaust
(Always measure the distance at a bend on the outside of the bend in order to assure the right diameter for your exhaust).
Why should you wrap an exhaust with an insulating wrap?
An insulating wrap containing fiberglass material is an excellent solution for the insulation of an exhaust and it is very easy to apply. With ‘performance motors’, the insulation of the exhaust also contributes to a better gas flow due to elevated temperatures within the exhaust.
Heat Shieldings’ exhaust insulation wrap is universally applicable and is generally applied on the exhausts of cars, trucks, motorcycles, airplanes, boats, agricultural vehicles and industrial machinery.
Insulating your exhaust is easier than you’d expect!
Tip 1: Make sure you have a sufficient amount of insulating wrappings. For example, you’ll easily end up with 15 meters of insulation wrappings for a 4 cylinder manifold. If you are not sure about the quantity of insulation material that you require for your equipment, then don’t hesitate to contact us with your questions!
Tip 2: Wetten the fiberglass insulation wrap, but pay extra attention to the amount of water that you apply. Try not to drown the insulation wrap! Hold the insulation wrap underneath the tap and let the material absorb the water, this will be sufficient. The titanium (basalt fibers) insulation wrap does not require to be made wet before application onto the exhaust. This insulation material already is very flexible from itself.
Tip 3: In order to tightly fix the stainless steel cable binders we advise you to utilize the DEI-montage-tool. With this tool you’d be able to easily tighten the tyraps. We recommend you to use 1 tyrap at the beginning of the insulation wrap for the extra support, and 2 tyraps at the end of the wrap in order to secure it along the entire width of the exhaust.
