    Abstract: An exhaust hanger band assembly, sleeve therefore, and method of increasing the elongation strength of an exhaust hanger band is provide. The exhaust hanger band assembly includes an elastomeric body configured to operably couple an exhaust member to a frame member of a vehicle. The elastomeric body has an annular outer surface extending along a body central axis between opposite sides. The assembly further includes a textile sleeve having a tubular wall extending along a sleeve central axis in generally parallel relation to the body central axis and between opposite ends. The tubular wall has at least one section of wale direction knit yarns extending along the sleeve central axis and at least one weft inserted yarn extending substantially transversely to the wale direction knit yarns about a circumference of the tubular wall. The at least one weft inserted yarn is interlinked with the at least one section of wale direction knit yarns.

  • Patent number: 7442875
    Abstract: The invention provides a protective sheath for receiving elongated items. The protective sheath includes first and second elongated substrates connected to one another about at least one living hinge. The first and second elongated substrates are moveable relative to one another between an open configuration wherein the first and second substrates are positioned substantially side by side adjacent to one another and a closed configuration wherein the first and second substrates at least partially overlying one another. The protective sheath also includes a first flap attached to the first substrate along an edge. The first flap is resiliently biased into a position overlying the first substrate and operable to engage the second substrate when the first and second substrates are in the closed configuration.

  • Publication number: 20080169038
    Abstract: A wrappable heat shield for an exhaust pipe and methods of construction and installation thereor includes an outer layer of metal having opposite inner and outer faces extending between opposite sides. An inner layer of non-woven insulation is attached to the the outer layer by a crimped portion extending along one of the opposite sides of the outer layer. The inner layer has a width sufficient to extend completely about a circumference of the exhaust pipe and is arranged in continuous contact with the exhaust pipe about its circumference while the outer layer remains spaced therefrom.
