DEI Announces ONYX™ Series Starter Shield

Next Generation Starter Heat Protection


The new ONYX™ Series Starter Shield from Design Engineering Inc. (DEI), provides reliable heat protection for starters under severe duty or extreme heat. Starters exposed to heat soak often malfunction or have problems starting reliably. DEI’s next generation ONYX Series Starter Shield provides the highest level of thermal protection to prevent starter malfunction due to heat soak.

The ONYX Series Starter Shield combines two technologically advanced textiles into a dual layer for maximum thermal control. The outer layer is made from heat treated glass fiber bonded with molten aluminum then formed into a tight weave for added strength and durability. The inner layer is made of a specially treated, high temperature resistant fabric (89% silica). Combined, these materials protect the starter up to 1350°F of direct heat.

The ONYX Series shield has a rich, black finish and is sized 7” width by 24” length. The length can be trimmed to size for added convenience and fastens with a hook and loop fastening system that makes it easy to install without the trouble of removing the starter. Multi-purpose in design and fit, this shield also can be used to wrap most master cylinders, distributors, fuel pumps and many other components.
