Hi All

We supply the usual BZP universal exhaust pipe clamps, but we were recently asked to to knock up some in Stainless Steel.

They are obviously more expensive, but I wondered what you thought about the idea? Do you think there could be a market? I have searched google and cannot really find anything similar

I would really appreciated the thoughts if you people who are into this kind of DIY



I don't want to use a forum like this to spam / push sales so I won't put a link to the products - ask if you are interested - it is really just your thoughts I am after at this stage

DON'T DO IT!!!!!

Stainless is absolutely vicious to mild steel when put in electrical contact with it and water is present. Anyone who has put a stainless self-tapper into mild steel will have seen it rust the mild steel around the hole very quickly. Apart from that, stainless it a really horrible bearing material, so the threads are likely to gall-up when you try to undo them after a while of having been on the car.

Obviously, for a stainless system, the first problem, at least, goes away.
I would think stainless clamps of very little advantage for a stock exhaust system, where BZP clamps already seem to outlast the rest of the system.

Maybe there will be a custom and coucourse market, and maybe they will be suitable for the less conventional uses the humble exhaust clamp is often asked to fulfil.
