The PTP BMW S63 Turbo Blanket

Austin, Texas--BMW’s S63 engine—happily situated in the M5 and M6 models—features twin turbochargers nestled in the V between cylinder banks. The proximity of each turbocharger to their respective exhaust outlets has reduced turbo lag by reducing exhaust heat loss. While this heat is great for the turbos, excessive heat radiating from turbochargers and high engine-bay temperatures is a well-known problem among street, race and performance car enthusiasts. To combat this, PTP Turbo Blankets is proud to announce, as of June 2014, the arrival of the BMW S63 lava turbo blanket.

DEI Introduces Ultra Sheath MA™

Avon Lake, Ohio…Extreme direct or radiant heat can melt or damage electronic components. Until recently, aluminum or foil sleeving was the solution. Now, DEI, the leader in thermal protection has introduced Ultra Sheath MA™, a new lightweight heat reflecting solution for tight high heat applications.

Developed with a unique process that impregnates molten aluminum to a tightly woven core fabric, Ultra Sheath MA sustains direct heat up to 1100°F and is over 40% lighter than foil covered sleeving. Developed to offer a consistently higher level of heat reflection, this thermal protection product from DEI provides the most advanced protection for cable lines, wire and hose.

DEI’s Titanium Pipe Shield™ with LR Technology is Now Available in Two New Sizes: 4” Width in both 8” and 12” Lengths

Avon Lake, Ohio…When the ultimate in heat protection is required, DEI is the solutions provider. DEI’s Titanium Pipe Shield developed with evolutionary LR Technology provides maximum protection outperforming traditional Mylar-backed glass fiber shields.

Extreme direct or radiant heat can damage transmissions, brake lines, wiring and hoses. DEI’s Titanium Shield clamps directly to any size exhaust pipe – auto, marine or motorcycle, to provide spot protection of sensitive electrical components, lines, cables, wires, transmissions and fire walls. Only DEI’s Titanium Pipe Shield combines a unique riveted “stand-off” design using 3.5” stainless steel clamps that provide a cooling air gap between the shield and the pipe. Combined with the heat dissipation benefits of the 2 ply material made with LR Fiber Technology, this unique design and material combination provides heat protection up to 1350°F. Mylar covered shields begin to flake or crack at 900°F.

DEI Titanium Protect-A-Sleeve™ with LR Technology™

Avon Lake, OH…DEI’s new Titanium Protect-A-Sleeve™ with LR Technology™ offers the best possible sleeve protection on the market today. Developed specifically for any application where extreme high heat is present, these Titanium™ sleeves will protect wires, lines and cables when exposed up to 1800°F direct heat/2500°F radiant. Developed with DEI’s proprietary LR Technology, these high temperature rated sleeves provide superior thermal protection for street vehicles or race engines, protecting fuel, oil lines, spark plug and electrical wires from direct or under hood radiant heat. The ½” ID sleeves will fit many of today’s larger diameter spark plug wires for protection against hot exhaust manifolds and headers. Water and heat resistant, they are also ideal for Powersports – ATV/UTV, motorcycle, personal watercraft, snowmobiles, and marine use.

DEI Introduces Stainless Steel Positive Locking Ties™

Avon Lake,OH…DEI’s new Stainless Steel Positive Locking Ties are specially designed for any application where there is extreme high heat – street, race, marine and powersports.
