Gold And Silver Heat Reflective Tape

Heat reflective tape is great for improving the appearance of the engine bay but reason it is used to protect components ,reduce engine temperature and increase performance.

 

Before you think we are saying wrapping your intake will produce more horsepower ,We are not but the effects of having colder air in the intake and reduced engine bay temperature can be massive. Along with the added protection for cables , hoses and other components and this has been proven in studies.

 

When used correctly, Heat reflective tape can be used to protect engine components by lowering your engine temperature. Lowered intake temperatures create a bigger bang in the combustion chamber and a more powerful and more efficient engine running cycle. Heat reflective tape is important for ensuring that components such as fuel cells, ECUs, heat shields and bulkheads are working at their optimal without the chance of damage due to excess heat.

 

When choosing either gold or silver one thing to bare in mind is that gold has a higher temperature tolerance than silver .

 

Silver can reflect away 70 % radiant heat and withstand temperatures of 200°C+ where as gold reflects away 80 % and can withstand heat of up to 450°C.We think that silver looks better but obviously gold is the better product, But you will get great results from silver and its also cheaper.

 

Gold or silver heat reflective tape is available in rolls of either

: 2.5m x 50mm
: 5.0m x 50mm
: 10m x 50mm

High Temperature Exhaust Wrapping

 

Exhaust wrap is generally purchased for aesthetic appeal but it also has been proven to lower engine bay temperatures and also keeps the heat in the exhaust system leading to more popping and banging and a faster air flow. Exhaust wrap is available in many colours and varieties ,From glass fibre to titanium they both have great appearance in the engine bay and lead to higher performance.

 

Exhaust wrap is a relatively inexpensive way to increase performance and engine bay style compared to more expensive modifications. Engine performance is increased because exhaust wrap keeps the exhaust heat in the headers and exhaust which creates faster air flow whilst keeping the engine bay cool which is vital for the intake system.

 

If you was to upgrade your exhaust system and purchase a high flow catalytic converter while also wrapping the exhaust headers you would see a massive performance increase compared to stock.

 

Exhaust wrapping is not a myth and it is proven to produce performance gains and also looks great in any engine bay.
