Can’t speak to Michigan weather, but I wrapped my exterior pipes and faucets with this product before our 5 day hard freeze (15-25 degrees) in Houston and did not have any busted pipes. Easy to use and can double wrap if worried about long winter freezes.
ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why oh earth do you want to insulate an exhaust pipe? Build a hard metal cage/barrier to encircle the pipe.
Yes this insulation will work well for your application to separate heat from transfering to your room or wall, from your dryer. It is flexible and easy to form on all shapes or bends.
No, this product does not carry a fire rating
This would not work as a dampening material for sound. This will hold heat.
I would not recommend that. This product is not made of fire retardant material that vehicle headers would need.
You can certainly use this to loosely wrap, keep the figlass air pocket in tact, around the steam pipe.
It would be better to wrap that pipe in heat tape.
Yes if not being used outside!
