What Is Exhaust Clamp Wire?
Exhaust clamp wire is a steel profile designed for creating a clamp that connects an exhaust pipe to a vehicle. These clamps must have specific measurements to function properly. Clamp wire that is too large for an application will cause the exhaust pipes to rattle as a vehicle operates. Loose exhaust seals can also lead to poor fuel economy and higher emissions.
Another quality of well-made wire for tail pipe clamps is heat resistance. Since these steel profiles must maintain a firm seal around high-heat exhaust, the material and construction must withstand high temperatures. The wrong material may cause the material to weaken and result in a looser seal over time.
