DEI EXO Series™ Exhaust and Pipe WrapAVON LAKE, OHIO (JULY 18, 2016) – DEI’s EXO Series™ Exhaust and Pipe Wrap provides superior heat protection for pipes and exhaust repeatedly exposed to abrasive or high impact environmental conditions.

Whether its hill climbing, rally or autocross racing, off-roading, dirt track racing, the EXO Series thermal wrap is the most durable and rugged wrap on the market.

Uniquely constructed with a dual layer design of high temp glass fiber encased in a 304 grade stainless steel exoskeleton, this wrap provides rugged good looks, durability and superior heat protection. The exoskeleton construction creates an air gap between the wrap and the pipe for additional cooling and allows the wrap to overlap and lock together for a tight, secure fit.

 


 

Titanium Turbo Shield™ for the Garrett® GTP38R TurboAVON LAKE, OHIO (JUNE 27, 2016) – DEI’s popular Titanium Turbo Shield™ is now available for the Garrett® GTP38R turbocharger. The GTP38R turbo, developed for the F-Series Power Stroke™ diesel equipped engine, greatly improves HP but can generate excessive radiant heat under the hood. DEI’s Titanium Turbo Shield, part # 010176, was custom designed to fit the GTP38R to reduce turbo lag, improve HP and add thermal protection for long-lasting performance.

Turbos are known to generate excessive heat under the hood that can put electrical wiring, hoses and components at risk. The DEI Titanium Turbo Shield serves as a high quality insulator that keeps the heat in the exhaust path. The exterior is made of a pulverized lava rock material manufactured into tightly woven fibers for titanium-like strength. The interior is made of high temp rated, silica fireproof insulation with a fireproof core all held together with double reinforced seams. Rated to handle direct heat up to 1800° F / 2500° F radiant, the result is more heat is kept in the exhaust path for a cooler air intake temperature and a boost in HP.  Anchoring hooks are used to secure the shield to the turbine housing.

 


 

DEI Positive Locking Tie and Tool KitAVON LAKE, OHIO (JUNE 14, 2016) – Design Engineering’s Stainless Steel Positive Locking Ties are the most ideal way to tighten wrap for automotive applications, especially for high heat applications such as exhaust wrap.

DEI’s Positive Locking Ties are made of 316 stainless steel in a ladder-style design with a ratchet tightening system and low profile clasp. Made for high heat applications, the ties can withstand heat in excess of 2500° F. Resistant to abrasive chemicals, the ties also can be used to secure electrical wires, cables, hoses and fluid lines.

DEI now offers a free Locking Tie Tool with the purchase of its Positive Locking Tie Kit (part #010219). The kit includes eight 9” x 8mm and four 14” x 8mm stainless steel ties and one Tie Tool.

 


 

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.
