Product Description

Hose Candy's Hot Rod DragonSkin Kit for Upper Radiator Hose

Hose Candy's Hot Rod kit covers the widerange of vintage Hotrods including: Street Rods, Classic Chevrolet, Classic Trucks, Muscle Car and Customs.

Note: Due to the strength and construction of DragonSkin, sizes above 1” will have difficulty in forming a tight bend greater than 60 deg. Bends greater than 60 deg in large hoses like radiator hoses will have creasing in the bend radius. Carbon Fiber and Kevlar will tightly form bends in excess of 90 deg.

DragonSkin is available in Silver and Black Only. Silver DragonSkin is an excellent alternative to stainless steel sleeve and looks much better. In addition DragonSkin won't wear off your metal finish on valve covers or body parts.

Dragon Skin™ is an extremely high temperature resistant Skin commonly used as thermal protection for hoses that are subjected to continuous and extreme temperature environments, such as engine manifolds and exhaust systems. Dragon Skin is braided from fiberglass yarns and saturated with high temperature resins. Dragon Skin is tough and durable, maintaining its tight structure under extreme vibration, abrasion, mechanical stress and temperature variations. Dragon Skin is available in a wide range of diameters. It installs easily over a variety of applications to either deflect or retain heat in environments up to 1,200°F.
