DEI EXO Series™ Exhaust WrapAVON LAKE, OHIO (OCTOBER 27, 2015) – DEI is ratcheting up the performance level once again with the release of their new EXO Series™ Exhaust Wrap. This new wrap has been designed to hold up against the rigors of off-road and extreme-duty use. The EXO Series™ exhaust wrap is a dual-layer design, using a combination of hi-temp glass fibers covered with a 304 grade stainless steel exoskeleton. This unique construction maintains good heat protection while offering superior abrasion and impact protection. In addition, DEI’s unique Air Gap Technology keeps direct contact of the glass fiber off the hot surface maintaining an insulating air barrier. Despite its burly appearance, the EXO Series™ exhaust wrap weighs nearly the same as existing wraps.

The EXO Series™ exhaust wrap comes in a special 1.5” (38mm) width, making it easy to install on motorcycles, ATV’s, UTV’s and other off-road vehicles with tight radius exhaust bends. In addition, the stainless steel exoskeleton layer ratchets together when overlapped, saving time and making installation much easier.
