ONYX Series™ T4 Turbo Shield AVON LAKE, OHIO (AUGUST 15, 2016) – DEI’s ONYX Series™ Turbo Shield is now available for many popular OEM and aftermarket T-4 sized turbos including Garrett and Mitsubishi. While first introduced for the GT22 and GT25 turbocharger, DEI is proud to build on the popularity of its ONYX Series line to offer this same premium product for the T4. Developed for extreme heat protection, quick spool up time and maximum turbo performance, the ONYX Series Shield maintains a more consistent temperature in the turbo for increased efficiency and decreased turbo lag.

DEI’s ONYX Series shield features the company’s most heat resistant textiles and its highest grade silica liner for extreme heat protection.  Recognizable for its rich, black carbon fiber look, this Made in the USA shield, comes with newly designed stainless steel attachment anchors and is constructed with double reinforced seams, inside and out.

 


 

New DEI Products available at AutoZoneAVON LAKE, OHIO (AUGUST 2, 2016) – DEI, the leading brand for automotive thermal protection, is proud to announce the availability of two new thermal protection products at AutoZone® stores nationwide.

DEI’s Titanium Protect-A-Sleeve with LR Technology and Reflect-A-GOLD are now available at more than 4500 AutoZone stores joining DEI’s flagship thermal wrap product - Titanium Exhaust Wrap with LR Technology™ in the 2” x 50 ft. length.

The newly added Titanium Protect-A-Sleeve with LR Technology provides thermal protection for wires, lines and cables from the damaging effect of direct and radiant heat; up to 1800°F direct heat, and 2500°F radiant. It is available at AutoZone in the ½” ID x 4 ft. length (part #010065).

 


 

DEI EXO Series™ Exhaust and Pipe WrapAVON LAKE, OHIO (JULY 18, 2016) – DEI’s EXO Series™ Exhaust and Pipe Wrap provides superior heat protection for pipes and exhaust repeatedly exposed to abrasive or high impact environmental conditions.

Whether its hill climbing, rally or autocross racing, off-roading, dirt track racing, the EXO Series thermal wrap is the most durable and rugged wrap on the market.

Uniquely constructed with a dual layer design of high temp glass fiber encased in a 304 grade stainless steel exoskeleton, this wrap provides rugged good looks, durability and superior heat protection. The exoskeleton construction creates an air gap between the wrap and the pipe for additional cooling and allows the wrap to overlap and lock together for a tight, secure fit.

 


 

Titanium Turbo Shield™ for the Garrett® GTP38R TurboAVON LAKE, OHIO (JUNE 27, 2016) – DEI’s popular Titanium Turbo Shield™ is now available for the Garrett® GTP38R turbocharger. The GTP38R turbo, developed for the F-Series Power Stroke™ diesel equipped engine, greatly improves HP but can generate excessive radiant heat under the hood. DEI’s Titanium Turbo Shield, part # 010176, was custom designed to fit the GTP38R to reduce turbo lag, improve HP and add thermal protection for long-lasting performance.

Turbos are known to generate excessive heat under the hood that can put electrical wiring, hoses and components at risk. The DEI Titanium Turbo Shield serves as a high quality insulator that keeps the heat in the exhaust path. The exterior is made of a pulverized lava rock material manufactured into tightly woven fibers for titanium-like strength. The interior is made of high temp rated, silica fireproof insulation with a fireproof core all held together with double reinforced seams. Rated to handle direct heat up to 1800° F / 2500° F radiant, the result is more heat is kept in the exhaust path for a cooler air intake temperature and a boost in HP.  Anchoring hooks are used to secure the shield to the turbine housing.

Made for high heat applications, the ties can withstand heat in excess of 2500° F. Resistant to abrasive chemicals, the ties also can be used to secure electrical wires, cables, hoses and fluid lines.
