DEI Mini Versa Starter ShieldAVON LAKE, OHIO (MAY 4, 2016) – Constructed of an aluminized heat reflective material backed with a high temperature rated glass fiber insulation barrier, the new mini DEI Versa Shield™ protects starters and other components from failure due to heat soak. Capable of reflecting radiant heat up to 2000°F and direct heat up to 500°F, this innovative thermal product installs easily and can be trimmed to size.

Its convenient hook and loop closure design allows the shield to wrap around the starter and attach in minutes. Most starters will not require removal. Simply wrap the starter with the aluminized side out, trim length to fit and secure the edges by pressing the black loop material sewn into the material into the sewn in strip of black hook material.

 


 

DEIs New Exhaust Wrap KitAVON LAKE, OHIO (APRIL 13, 2016) – Don’t let excessive exhaust heat become a power drain. Top engine builders and racers trust DEI thermal wrap to expedite exhaust flow for higher velocity and maximum HP by controlling heat to produce increased exhaust flow and a cooler intake charge.

DEI’s Exhaust Wrap Kit provides everything you need to completely wrap a set of small block or V-6 headers in one package. The kit includes two rolls of 2 inch by 50 ft. wrap designed to protect up to 1500° F, one can of HT Silicone Coating that coats, protects and preserves the wrap after installation, and eight 8 inch and four 14 inch 304 Stainless Steel Locking Ties to ensure long-lasting durability and hold. A free Locking Tie Tool is included to lock the ties tight and works with any ¼” drive. DEI’s stitched-in wrap guide line protects against overlapping for a professional and tight fit.

 


 

DEI C7 Corvette Heat ShroudAVON LAKE, OHIO (MARCH 29, 2016) – DEI’s C7 Corvette Heat Shroud™ is made with a high-temp glass fiber fabric bonded to aluminized material that reflects 90% of radiant heat. The Z06 Corvette is noted for its oil cooler lines placed in close proximity to the catalytic converter capable of reaching 1200+ degrees Fahrenheit.  Radiant heat from the converter can raise the oil temperature to the point of putting the C7 in limp mode and putting other components at risk of failure. This scenario is especially possible at the racetrack or even spirited street driving.

DEI now offers a simple, easy to install solution. The C7 Heat Shroud protects engine oil from overheating without the need to disconnect the oil cooler lines. Developed with a convenient hook and loop closure design, installation takes only minutes.  Simply wrap the heat shroud around the oil cooler line and seal.

 


 

DEI C7 Corvette Catalytic Converter Heat ShieldAVON LAKE, OHIO (MARCH 9, 2016) – The new C7 Corvette has one design flaw that can easily send it into limp mode with reduced power. Because the engine cooler and oil filter are located in close proximity to the driver side catalytic converter, the engine oil can overheat signaling the ECM to reduce power.

DEI now offers a new thermal control solution with the introduction of the C7 Catalytic Converter Heat Shield. Custom designed to prevent oil temperature from rising in the C7 by blocking heat transfer at the source, this shield is a quick, easy and cost effective solution to prevent a loss of power.

 


 

DEI Heat Screen™ with AdhesiveAVON LAKE, OHIO (FEBRUARY 26, 2016) – DEI’s new Heat Screen is made of Mylar laminated to a glass fiber matting backed with an aggressive pressure sensitive adhesive for easy peel and stick application with high cohesion strength.

Designed to protect against excessive direct or radiant heat, it is developed to withstand 1200°F direct heat, or up to 2000°F radiant. To apply, simply cut and trim to cover body panels, floor boards, gas tanks, fairings, and other areas requiring thermal protection. It can also be used as a low profile protection under carpeting to lessen floorboard heat.  Measuring only .060 inches in thickness, this versatile, thin profile reflective material adheres quickly and easily to any surface, even or uneven, painted or unpainted.
