Avon Lake, Ohio…Design Engineering Inc. (DEI), specialists in heat and sound control, now offers a new convenient way to protect fuel lines, wires, cables and hoses from excessive direct or radiant heat. DEI’s Heat Shroud™ is made with a high-temp glass fiber fabric bonded to aluminized material that reflects 90% of radiant heat, and direct heat up to 500° F. A hook and loop closure design makes this a simple and easy installation. Now only remove or disconnect one end to install. This time saving convenience makes it possible to get a secure thermal protection barrier without compromising performance or safety; especially important for grassroots or professional motorsports.
Extremely pliable and fireproof, DEI’s Heat Shroud fits inside diameters ranging from ½” to 2-1/2”. In addition to its heat reflecting properties, DEI’s Heat Shroud also provides additional protection against oil, dirt and abrasion and can be trimmed to length.
Avon Lake, OH…Boom Mat, the automotive leader for acoustic control, now offers a new premium damping material that is 166% thicker than standard damping products. The XL version is an industry-leading 4mm thick. For unwanted noise in trucks, classics, street rods, modified street performance vehicles and stereo competition vehicles, Boom Mat’s XL is the most effective product for eliminating unwanted vibration, engine and road noise.
Constructed with a 4 mil aluminum panel-stiffening skin with an odorless, 4mm thick butyl noise constraining layer, Boom Mat XL traps unwanted noise while requiring less overall material to get the job done. With the thicker 4mm, only 25 to 50% coverage is required which reduces weight, installation time and material cost.
Avon Lake, OH…DEI Powersports has launched the next generation of heat protection performance using a combination of advanced textiles and a reliable standoff bracket design. DEI’s new ONYX Series™ Flexible Heat Shield, available in a rich black finish, looks great and outperforms other conventional heat shields currently on the market.
For improved thermal performance, DEI joined two durable materials together to form a dual-layer design. The outer layer is made from heat-treated glass fiber impregnated with molten aluminum; formed into a tight weave for added durability and strength. The inside material is made of a specially treated, high temperature resistant fabric (89% silica) capable of withstanding extreme exhaust heat – up to 1350°F. The outer edge features a surge stitch for improved durability. All hardware is stainless steel.
Avon Lake, OH…DEI’s Titanium™ Protect-A-Sleeve™ with LR Technology™ provides the best possible protection of wires, lines and cables of any sleeve available on the market. Design Engineering now offers this same Titanium sleeving in sizes large enough for radiator and heater hoses; providing the ultimate protection from heat and fluids.
Last year, DEI introduced the ½” ID Titanium Protect-A-Sleeve to fit larger diameter spark plug wires for added protection against extreme heat generated by hot exhaust manifolds and headers. Now, this same level of protection is available in new 1” and 2” IDs that will snugly fit most radiator and heater hoses. Four new part numbers are now available: 2” ID x 36” (#010482), 1” ID x 48” (#010483), as well as bulk lengths: 2” ID sold by the foot (#010482B) and 1” ID sold by the foot (#101483B).
Avon Lake, Ohio…Insulating Corvette EGR valve pipes not only helps reduce heat radiating from the pipe, but also helps to keep exhaust gas temperatures higher as it is being reintroduced into the intake. Mixing with the intake air helps lower combustion temperatures for a cooler more complete fuel burn for maximum HP.
Design Engineering, leading specialists in performance thermal products, now offers a Corvette EGR Pipe Heat Shield for 1985 – ’91 models that makes installation a simple and straightforward task. Designed with an innovative sewn-in hook & loop edge, the shield easily wraps around the EGR pipe for a secure fit. Simply trim off any excess material for a quick replacement without removal of the EGR valve or pipe.

THE NEWEST INNOVATION IN TIRE CUSTOMIZATION
By Guys Who Ride
A trio of siblings living near Boulder, Colorado discovered the market for a tire paint pen was extremely limited and those that were available simply did not live up to their promise; paint that did not stick to rubber, quality so poor that the paint would fall off or wilt in the sun, red paint that would become a pinkish rust in just a day and white paint that disintegrated after one use! “We wanted a paint that worked and was worthy of gracing our tires. “ So we set off to make their own tire paint.
