After more than 50 years of manufacturing headers using mild steel materials, Hedman Hedders, located in Whittier, California, announces the introduction of performance headers manufactured using Type 304 stainless steel flanges and primary tubes.
Hedman Hedders has taken header manufacturing to the next level by electing to use Type 304 stainless steel in the production of it's stainless line of headers, instead of less expensive 409. "Although more expensive than 409 stainless, we [Hedman Hedders] have chosen to use 304 stainless because the higher Chromium and Nickel content of this alloy provides superior heat and corrosion resistance than 409 stainless. Also, the 304 material will not rust or flake like 409 stainless steel. This means Hedman's Stainless Hedders will retain a cleaner look, and hold up to extreme temperatures better than 409 stainless Hedders.", claims Kevin Vandergriff, VP/Director of Operations at Hedman Manufacturing.
Hedman's Stainless headers use sturdy 3/8" thick, laser cut flanges and as with any Hedman header, all primary tubes have smooth flowing mandrel bends. Hedman's also offers headers with or without their HTC Ceramic-metallic coating.
