DEI Introduces EXO Series™ Line and Hose Protection

Avon Lake, OH (February 15, 2017)…DEI’s EXO Series™ Sleeving has all the features of DEI’s popular Fire Sleeve™ with one benefit that makes it ideal for off-road racing, dirt track or extreme sports. Like the Fire Sleeve, the DEI EXO Sleeve is constructed of high temperature resistant glass material woven into a 100% silicone sleeve. The exception is that the EXO Sleeve has a 304 stainless steel exoskeleton exterior mesh that provides an added layer of protection to wires, lines and hoses exposed to harsh or abrasive conditions.

The EXO Sleeve withstands up to 500°F of direct continuous heat or 2000°F intermittent heat and works as a thermal insulator for wiring, hoses and oil, brake and transmission lines. This sleeve, encapsulated with a stainless steel mesh, allows for air flow around the silicone sleeve when in direct contact with a hot surface making it excellent to use around hot exhaust systems and headers.

DEI Introduces Black Titanium™ Exhaust Wrap with Carbon Fiber Look

Wrapped headers and exhaust also reduces the incidence of heat soak, can prevent harmful burns, protect heat-sensitive underhood components, and reduce the level of heat transmitted through the firewall and floor of the vehicle for a more comfortable interior.
