Exhaust Wrap White MED approved
With the extra fine and sturdy weaving, the strength and high-quality finish of this product, a new type of exhaust insulation wrap has entered the market.
In addition, this product is MED-certified (Marine Equipment Directive) by the IMO. This directive is used to regulate the admission of marine equipment onto the European market. On one hand the accreditation mark is used to indicate that a product meets all the European and international requirements, on the other hand the mark is used as a tool to monitor the market.
The Heat Shieldings exhaust insulation wrap contains weaved fiberglass to which it thanks its robustness. This exhaust wrap is able to withstand direct heat up to 550 °C.

Note about Titanium Exhaust Systems:
Heat Shieldings does NOT recommend wrapping exhausts made of titanium. The alloys used in the production of titanium exhaust systems tend to be thin and are designed to dissipate heat quickly. Wrapping any titanium exhaust pipe, regardless of brand, can hold in too much heat, and make the titanium alloy turn brittle and prone to premature cracking. If you are seeking to reduce the heat on a titanium exhaust system, Heat Shieldings recommends using alternatives such as our flexible heat shields.
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 one 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.
