Smile Turbo blankets don't like heat? (pics)

Pulled out my motor, started taking off the blanket and it just felt apart to million pieces in my hands






so what's a good blanket that lasts?

Heat does a number on the insulation. Take it on/off and heat cycle it a few hundred times, don't expect it to last.

Its expected to replace them at some point, as it will wear overtime. But if you never remove it, many will never notice its disintegrating.

How many times have you removed it? You won't notice until you do. My PTP lava blanket tie wire buttons pulled right off after some serious heat cycling and the material is definitely more brittle and friable. It's all spelled out in the PTP instructions. Many heat cycles = dead blanket if you removed it often.
