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.

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.
