Formed in 1987, Cool It Thermo-Tec, a family owned business was the first to market Exhaust Insulating Wrap to reduce under the hood temperatures for more horsepower. Thermo-Tec exhaust wrap is now sold online and in specialty automotive stores nationwide. The company’s proprietary Thermal Conduction Technology (TCT) – is a coating that effectively conducts heat across the wrap’s entire surface to dissipate heat build-up allowing it to withstand heat up to 2000°F. All Thermo-Tec products are manufactured in the USA and innovations have been used in space, by the United States Armed Forces and top racers like Jack Roush, Steve Matusek, Joe Gibbs and many more.
