DEI Quick Fix TapeAVON LAKE, OHIO (OCTOBER 19, 2011) – Design Engineering, Inc. (DEI) a leading U.S. manufacturer of thermal tuning products, is introducing a new high performance grade, self-curing waterproof tape that is a must-have for any home, shop or automotive repair tool kit. Quick Fix tape provides an immediate waterproof seal on contact. Made to be resistant to moisture, harsh chemical solvents, oil or fuel, it is the ideal tape for emergency hose repair or to seal temporary leaks for all automotive, marine, RV, powersports and industrial uses.

Extruded from a special high performance grade silicone that withstands extreme heat or cold (-60°F to 500°F) while providing insulation up to 8,000 volts and 700 psi tensile strength, Quick Fix Tape is the ultimate multi-use tape. It is pliable yet strong, stretching up to three times its length making it easy to manipulate for many different repair situations. Uniquely, Quick Fix is made with a triangular profile that makes the tape thicker in the center than the edges to provide a smooth overlapping edge for a secure bond, yet can be removed when needed without leaving a sticky residue.

 


 

DEI Under Hood Thermal Acoustic LiningAVON LAKE, OHIO (SEPTEMBER 2, 2011) – DEI’s new Under Hood (UH) Thermal Acoustic Lining reduces the transfer of heat and noise generated from high performance, high rev engines. Made of ¾” thick, high quality, industrial acoustical grade foam with a reinforced reflective aluminum skin it is easy to install. Simply peel and stick for immediate protection and improved noise control. DEI’s themal acoustic lining provides thermal control within a temperature range of -45 degree F (43 C) to 275 degree F (135 C).

T6 Titanium Turbo Shield with LR TechnologyAVON LAKE, OHIO (JANUARY 24, 2011) – Turbochargers generate a lot of heat and without protection, can potentially affect under-the-hood components and overall turbo performance.   Now there is a way to manage excessive turbo heat in the turbine housing and related radiant heat under the hood with DEI’s new Titanium™ T6 Turbo Shield with LR™ Technology.  Much like DEI’s T3 and T4 shields, the T6 handles direct continuous heat in the turbine up to 1800 degrees F (980°C), and up to 2500 degrees F (1370°C) of radiant heat. Made from pulverized lava rock, extruded into fibers and then woven into a tight weave, and high temperature rated silica insulation padding, the T6 provides for protection against extreme heat.

This improvement in under hood thermal management helps keep more heat inside the turbo to assist in faster spool-up while reducing radiant temperature. The result is cooler air intake temperatures for improved performance and a boost in horsepower.  Less heat circulating in the engine bay also means reducing the chances of “heat soak” conditions on vital under hood components. The T6 Turbo Shield's ability to reduce under hood temperature also assists in eliminating heat transfer to a vehicle’s interior for overall ride comfort.
