Form-A-Shield™ solves the problem of needing a direct contact, extreme heat barrier.
Capable of withstanding direct heat of up to 1400°F+, Form-A-Shield can be applied to exhaust headers, manifolds, turbo housings, and downpipes dramatically reducing radiant exhaust temperatures. Formed from 10 mil dimpled aluminum bonded to a high temperature rated basalt thermal barrier material, Form-A-Shield can be applied directly to hot surfaces helping to lower under hood temperatures while keeping more heat in the exhaust system.
- Extremely pliable and forms to many shapes and configurations
- Durable and resistant to oil and chemical spills
- Withstands direct heat up to 1400°F+
- Superior insulator anywhere near the path of exhaust pipes
- Can be applied directly to hot surfaces
- Fasten with straps, clamps or DEI Locking Ties
- No adhesive backing
NOTE: Use DEI Adhesive Spray with Form-A-Shield on non-hot areas to serve as a heat barrier / reflector

I recently bought a needy 1962 Triumph TR4 that was looking for a good home. When I put the car up on jack stands to do a thorough inspection, I found a large exhaust resonator located immediately under and adjacent the differential, cooking the gear oil - no good !! After changing the differential oil (it was pretty nasty from the heat), I found this Form-A-Shield product on the DEI website. Excellent solution, I was able to cut off a section with a pair of heavy duty shears, and easily form it around the exhaust resonator to protect the differential. Three SS ties have secured it in place and I am all set. This is a workable product, the total installation time including measuring, cutting to fit and installation was 30 minutes. I am a fan !!
