Default heat wrap

I keep seeing bikes with heat wrap on the exhausts that seems to be stuck on - does anyone know what is used?

Cheers

this is something that I was considering for my current project, as Im making the exhaust myself and diddnt fancy grinding down all the welds etc to try and get them good enough to then chrome

I did see some heatwrap that was almost "wet" and when warmed it dried and adheres to the pipes, quite how hard it would be to remove in the future Im unsure

the thing I struggle to understand is how you get it to stay nice and tight following curves, bends etc? without it getting saggy

theres also spray available to colour it after application

Having just spoken to Nik at boneshaker chopper
basically you over lap the bandage on itself (like in the pic) and it grips on itself and does not slip down
But make sure you tie it at either end with the ties/wires or jubilee clips
