What is the purpose of using HT Silicone Coating?
HT Silicone Coating has several beneficial purposes on header wraps and metal surfaces. When applied to an exhaust wrap it increases the wraps thermal isolation and resistance. The silicone agent bonds to the surface of the wrap and increases its integrity which reduces the need to re-wrap headers or piping, just re-apply HT Silicone Coating routinely. HT Silicone can also be applied to a prepped metal surface where wrapping is improbable. Because HT Silicone Coating is silicone based it also can repell water, dirt and oils from any surface.
