Anyone know where you can get decent quality wrap for branch manifolds and exhausts?

Graham suggested I ask the forum as he was not sure where to get it.

I bought a roll of this stuff for less than half the price some of the aftermarket performance shops sell it.

http://lsthermal.co.za/contact-us/contact.asp

I've wrapped my hoses closest to the turbo up in it, but need to get around to wrapping my branches on my patrol up in it. Its just a little itchy to work with. I think I bought a 15m roll of the stuff. It's about 60mm odd wide tape.

Cedric, GMan

Is this made from asbestos?
Is that not a health issue?

Honestly I'm not sure, but as far as I know you cannot but anything with asbestos in it anymore. I am under the impression that it is an "illegal" substance. I'm under the impression that it is a ceramic fibre produced from silica sand and some other stuff, that make the white fibre that then gets weaved or processed into a tape. Its similar to stuff like Aerolite ( think pink ), just compressed to form a tape.
