DEI Introduces Onyx Series™ Flexible Heat Shield

The next generation heat shield has arrived

New Boom Mat XLAVON LAKE, OHIO (JANUARY 6, 2015) – DEI Powersports has launched the next generation of heat protection performance using a combination of advanced textiles and a reliable standoff bracket design. DEI’s new ONYX Series™ Flexible Heat Shield, available in a rich black finish, looks great and outperforms other conventional heat shields currently on the market.

For improved thermal performance, DEI joined two durable materials together to form a dual-layer design. The outer layer is made from heat-treated glass fiber impregnated with molten aluminum; formed into a tight weave for added durability and strength. The inside material is made of a specially treated, high temperature resistant fabric (89% silica) capable of withstanding extreme exhaust heat – up to 1350°F. The outer edge features a surge stitch for improved durability. All hardware is stainless steel.

This proprietary textile technology combined with DEI’s unique shield standoff bracket design provides maximum potential for cooling and heat dissipation. In addition to use in external applications to protect legs and boots, DEI’s flexible heat shield can also be used as a barrier between the exhaust and plastic bodywork, suspension components, or electrical harnesses. Designed to be flexible, the shield fits many different applications and pipe diameters.
