If it is all about that bass, then Boom Mat’s new Vibration Damping & Speaker Performance Kit is the easiest way to eliminate rattles in the bass and midrange frequencies. Boom Mat, the leading supplier of thermal and acoustic control products for the automotive aftermarket, now offers a new peel and stick damping material designed to improve interior and stereo sound quality. Boom Mat vibration damping material is recommended for use around speaker mounting surfaces, doors, trunk lids or even license plates to enjoy a quieter, more comfortable vehicle interior.
Developed with an industry-leading 2mm thick, asphalt-free, pure-butyl noise constraining layer backed with a 4mil aluminum panel stiffening top skin, this Made in the USA vibration damping material can be easily installed in cars, trucks, vans, street rods, commercial vehicles to name a few applications. It’s also suggested for a higher performing replacement for OEM body panel materials used in body shops.
Boom Mat’s Hi-Temp Spray Adhesive is designed to provide a secure high strength bond to most any surface in as quick as 30 seconds to trim materials, and most any fabric including vinyl and foam. Once applied, Boom Mat Hi-Temp Spray Adhesive dries quickly to a clear seal without risk of yellowing, making it ideal for installing carpet, headliners, insulation, or upholstery.
The three-way adjustable valve allows a choice of three spray streams for added versatility and ease of use. One 10 oz. can (part #050490) covers 15 sq. ft.
Boom Mat Hi-Tem Spray Adhesive is water and heat resistant; making it ideal for both automotive and marine use. Its high bonding strength is designed to hold up in hot and cold temps. Rated up to 160°F (71°C) it can be used where heat resistance is required such as in the application of Boom Mat Under Carpet, DEI Heat Screen or Leather Look Headliners.
• Heat and water resistant
• Dries quickly and clear
• Adjustable spray valve
The new C7 Corvette has one design flaw that can easily send it into limp mode with reduced power. Because the engine cooler and oil filter are located in close proximity to the driver side catalytic converter, the engine oil can overheat signaling the ECM to reduce power.
DEI now offers a new thermal control solution with the introduction of the C7 Catalytic Converter Heat Shield. Custom designed to prevent oil temperature from rising in the C7 by blocking heat transfer at the source, this shield is a quick, easy and cost effective solution to prevent a loss of power.
DEI, in support of grassroots motorsports and local, regional and national project builds, offers both racers and builders the opportunity to become a member of TEAM DEI. Team DEI is open to racers of any series from drag to road racing, dirt or oval, to receive support in exchange for promotion of DEI on and off the track.
Each month, a racer or project builder will be selected to be featured through DEI’s website and social media as the featured vehicle of the month. To be sponsored and participate in TEAM DEI, simply fill out the online form at www.designengineering.com, or download the application as a PDF and fax to 440-930-7967.
Excessive under-the-hood heat generated by exhaust pipes and headers robs horsepower, puts electrical components at risk and reduces overall performance. DEI, the leading thermal specialist for the automotive aftermarket, now offers a quicker and easier way to ensure a cooler air charge for improved performance. Speed Sleeves cover and protect primary exhaust header pipes serving both as an insulator and radiant heat barrier for pipes up to 2-1/2” in diameter. Speed Sleeves offer a time saving alternative to completely wrapping headers from top to bottom, and can also be used for spot heat protection on any pipe or manifold.
Also sold as a kit, Speed Sleeves has everything needed for a quick and simple install including 8” wide exhaust wrap, locking fasteners and stainless steel locking ties. Available for purchase in two color options, tan and black, it is available for either a four or six cylinder engine (12’ of wrap) or eight cylinder (16’ of wrap).
Part # Description
The new ONYX™ Series Starter Shield from Design Engineering Inc. (DEI), provides reliable heat protection for starters under severe duty or extreme heat. Starters exposed to heat soak often malfunction or have problems starting reliably. DEI’s next generation ONYX Series Starter Shield provides the highest level of thermal protection to prevent starter malfunction due to heat soak.
The ONYX Series Starter Shield combines two technologically advanced textiles into a dual layer for maximum thermal control. The outer layer is made from heat treated glass fiber bonded with molten aluminum then formed into a tight weave for added strength and durability. The inner layer is made of a specially treated, high temperature resistant fabric (89% silica). Combined, these materials protect the starter up to 1350°F of direct heat.
DEI’s C7 Corvette Heat Shroud™ is made with a high-temp glass fiber fabric bonded to aluminized material that reflects 90% of radiant heat. The Z06 Corvette is noted for its oil cooler lines placed in close proximity to the catalytic converter capable of reaching 1200+ degrees Fahrenheit. Radiant heat from the converter can raise the oil temperature to the point of putting the C7 in limp mode and putting other components at risk of failure. This scenario is especially possible at the racetrack or even spirited street driving.
DEI now offers a simple, easy to install solution. The C7 Heat Shroud protects engine oil from overheating without the need to disconnect the oil cooler lines. Developed with a convenient hook and loop closure design, installation takes only minutes. Simply wrap the heat shroud around the oil cooler line and seal.
DEI’s new Heat Screen is made of Mylar laminated to a glass fiber matting backed with an aggressive pressure sensitive adhesive for easy peel and stick application with high cohesion strength.
Designed to protect against excessive direct or radiant heat, it is developed to withstand 1200°F direct heat, or up to 2000°F radiant. To apply, simply cut and trim to cover body panels, floor boards, gas tanks, fairings, and other areas requiring thermal protection. It can also be used as a low profile protection under carpeting to lessen floorboard heat. Measuring only .060 inches in thickness, this versatile, thin profile reflective material adheres quickly and easily to any surface, even or uneven, painted or unpainted.
Excessive heat can cause performance and factory fuel injectors and sensors to be at risk of vapor lock or heat soak; which can cause rough idling, slow starting or other potential serious engine problems. In addition, cooler fuel injectors perform more efficiently with a more consistent throttle response.
To reduce problems associated with vapor lock and heat soak, DEI has introduced heat reflective fuel injector and sensor covers that are now available in packs of two, four, six or eight. The covers efficiently reflect direct and radiant heat away from injectors and sensors. Constructed of high-temperature rated glass fiber material bonded to a heat reflective aluminized material, DEI’s Fuel Injector and Sensor Covers work well on most any engine configuration with stock or aftermarket injectors and sensors.
