The decision making process when it comes to selecting the best exhaust wrap for your vehicle can be made difficult when there are common myths and facts that are circling, that most people are not familiar with.
Here are the top myths and facts about exhaust wraps that you didn’t know before:
- MYTH: All exhaust wraps are the same for every vehicle.
This is not true. There are a variety of exhaust wraps for different types of vehicles as well as there being different quality exhaust wraps. There are both high and low quality exhaust wraps,and it is all a matter of selecting the right heat wrap through a trustworthy heat protection product company to assist you in making the right choice.
- FACT: Vehicles can produce different types of heat.
There are three different types of heat that a vehicle can produce. Therefore, you need to select the appropriate heat wrap that works within what type of heat your vehicle is producing.
These are the three types of heat that your vehicle can produce:
Convective: Where one part becomes overheated as it comes into contact with a hot liquid or gas.
Conductive: This is where heat travels from one part to another through direct contact.
Radiant: This is where a hot part in the vehicle radiates heat to another part without directly touching the other part
Seeking the advice from professionals about what type of heat your car produces will assist you with making the decision on what heat protection product will work best for you.
- MYTH: Intermittent temperatures are the only thing you need to worry about.
This isn’t true. You need to worry about both intermittent temperatures and service temperatures. It is important to consider investing in heat wraps that can withstand not only intermittent heat, but also service/consistent heat from a vehicle. Otherwise, you will have a very low performing exhaust wrap.
At Kool Wrap, we provide you with the best temperature ratings for both intermittent and service heat, and in turn will provide you with the best heat wraps to withstand either heat level.

False! Exhaust wraps main aim is to improve the performance of your car and assist with heat protection. Although they do look appealing, their main purpose is to protect your car from heat, overheating and potential damage that could occur from excessive heat radiation.
- FACT: You have to always measure the temperature of your car
This is true, measuring your temperatures is very important to ensure that it is at a safe level and to determine what heat wrap can provide the best care and protection for whatever temperature your vehicle is showing to be.
