Basalt tape, also known as lava wrap, is a heat resistant tape used to wrap exhaust pipes and more. Basalt lava tape improves thermal performance and reliability. Insulated pipes improve performance with any machinery. Losses due to heat can add up to a good percentage of the total efficiency and reducing that loss will make your machines run smoother, longer.
Made from continuous filament basalt (volcanic rock). Basalt fiber tape is made from basalt roving or textured fiber and can be woven to varying thicknesses and weaves. Basalt tape (lava wrap) is non combustible and fire resistant. Maintaining its integrity at temperatures up to 1800°F/982°C basalt is safe, inert, non-respirable, chemical resistant, acid resistant and water resistant.
COMMON BASALT TAPE LAVA WRAP APPLICATIONS
• Used to wrap air intake, intercooler, supercharger, turbo pipes and tubing, starters, hoses, wiring, cold air induction systems, protects body parts and components by reflecting heat away. Keeping inner air and parts cooler and more efficient.
• Universal application on exhaust headers and any exhaust pipes.
BASALT TAPE LAVA WRAP BENEFITS
Maintaining heat in your exhaust system makes exhaust gases hotter, allowing gases to exit the exhaust system faster. This helps to pull intake gases into the system faster and more efficiently. Lowering intake temperatures results in more power!
Basalt tape lava wrap is the best product for your pipe wrap needs. It is more durable than glass fiber and carbon fiber wraps. Helps maintain heat in your exhaust while increasing power and reducing heat damage. Use with stainless steel locking ties.
