Foil tape for paniers over exhaust
« on: May 24, 2019, 08:28:10 AM »
Hi,  with a short exhaust the end of the pipe sits under my paniers, can anyone recommend any certain type of heat reflective tape to put on?

I am assuming you are concerned about fabric panniers. Foil faced tape is really a reflector of radiant heat and not really an insulator. If you are sitting in traffic and exhaust heat builds under your panniers, you will have damage. Nylon melts at about 210 C but well before the nylon melts the urethane waterproofing will melt at about 150 C or less. I think the only reliable solution is either repositioning the exhaust or metal panniers.

You can get a soldering mat from a plumbers merchant you may need 2 depending on your needs. Sew them together and make something to hd them in place or attach to panniers. Probably the best solution.

Do you need something like this, that you find under cars and protecting plastic petrol tanks on bikes from engine heat?
