Designed as a replacement to aluminum or foil sleeving and to be the most advanced protection for cable lines, wire and hose, DEI’s Ultra Sheath sustains direct heat up to 1100°F and is over 40% lighter than foil covered sleeving.
More flexible to use than standard foil or bonded aluminum products, Ultra Sheath MA is easy to trim to desired lengths for quick and easy installation; even in hard to reach locations. Ultra Sheath MA can be purchased in multiple ID sizes and lengths as well as bulk including: ½” ID x 3’ (#010230), ½” ID x 15’ (#010231), ¾” ID x 3’ (#010232), and 1-¼” x 3’ (#010233).

Avon Lake, OH…Boom Mat now offers a premium peel and stick 2mm automotive Damping Material that offers a more effective way to reduce unwanted vehicle interior noise. Boom Mat’s original damping material has been used for years to improve cabin acoustics. The new and improved 2mm damping material is designed to more effectively reduce low frequency noise typical of structure borne vibrations with less material coverage - reducing weight, material cost and installation time. Road, engine and vibration noise is reduced dramatically when applied to floorboards, firewalls, door skins and overhead interior roof panels.
Avon Lake, Ohio…In hot temps, both performance and factory fuel injectors can be at risk of vapor lock or heat soak causing a rough idle, slow starting or other potential serious engine problems. DEI has the solution by introducing Fuel Injector Reflective Heat Covers available in packs of two, four, six or eight, that reflect direct and radiant heat away from the injectors.
Constructed of high-temperature rated glass fiber material bonded to a heat reflective aluminized material, DEI’s Fuel Injector Heat Covers can be used on most any engine configuration utilizing stock or aftermarket fuel injectors. Cooler fuel injectors will perform more efficiently, offering a more consistent throttle response.
Installation is a breeze as the injectors do not have to be removed. The covers are made with a split design allowing them to wrap around each individual injector and are secured with a sewn-in hook and loop fastening edge.
