EXO Series exhaust wrap is designed for extreme environment use. Traditional exhaust wraps have not been able to withstand the extreme use that Off-road, Dirt track, Desert and other forms of driving have with exposure to water and dirt. The EXO Series™ is a dual-layer design, using a combination of hi-temp glass fiber, covered with a 304 grade stainless steel exoskeleton. This unique construction maintains high heat protection while offering superior abrasion and impact  protection. Our unique Air Gap Technology keeps direct contact of the glass fiber wrap off the hot surface creating an insulating air barrier.

The EXO Series exhaust wrap comes in a special 1.5” width, making it easy to install on any type of header, exhaust pipe or exhaust system making it perfect for high impact spot protection. In addition, the stainless  steel exoskeleton locks together when overlapped keeping the wrap tight and making installation easy. Delivering outstanding looks and Rugged performance for long term durability, available in Black or Tan in either 1.5” x 10’ or 1.5” x 20’ rolls.

ONYX Series™ Pipe Shield

DEI ONYX Series™ Pipe Shield - 010496 - Design Engineering Inc

DEI has launched the next generation of heat protection performance! Using a combination of advanced textiles, DEI developed a flexible heat shield solution that looks great and outperforms other conventional heat shields available today. This enhanced performance starts by joining two durable materials together forming a dual-layer design. The outer layer is made from heat-treated glass fiber that is bonded with molten aluminum and then formed into a tight weave for durability and strength.

The inside material is made of a specially treated, high temperature resistant fabric (89% silica) designed to withstand some serious exhaust heat. The outer edge is finished off with a surge stitch for durability. All hardware is stainless steel. The result is a product with very good thermal performance up to 1350°F, with an eye catching rich black finish.

Turbo systems are the easiest and most cost effective way to add horsepower to engines in a big way. DEI recognized the need for new Turbo Shield applications, and now offer Turbo Shields in the smaller turbo sizes. Building on the popularity of the ONYX™ Series, DEI has expanded its turbo shield offerings to include a GT 22 and GT25 sized shields that utilize this high performing material. Unlike cheap, knock-off copies, the DEI Turbo Shields are Made in the USA, using an exclusive combination of premium heat resistant textiles and newly designated stainless steel attachment anchors. DEI Turbo Shields are used to maintain a more consistent temperature in the turbo, increasing efficency and decreasing turbo lag. In addition to Garret® brand turbo housings, the Onyx™ Turbo Shields will fit several other popular turbo brands including Mitsubishi® and others.
