DEI Introduces Black Titanium™ Exhaust Wrap with Carbon Fiber Look

Avon Lake, OH (March 15, 2017)…DEI, trusted thermal experts for the automotive aftermarket, now offers a new Black Titanium™ Exhaust Wrap in four available lengths.

Composed of pulverized lava rock extruded into woven fibers, this premium wrap with LR Technology is designed for maximum strength, durability and long-lasting use. Like the original Titanium Wrap, DEI’s Black Titanium Wrap maximizes horsepower and performance by reducing underhood temperatures and maintaining high exhaust gas velocity. 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.

3M AUTO’S NEW BODY REPAIR SANDING SHEETS FEATURE PROPRIETARY PRECISION-SHAPED GRAIN TECHNOLOGY FOR A MORE CONSISTENT FINISH

Rust and dents are inevitable, but with the help of the industry’s strongest abrasives technology, they can also be quickly and effectively repaired. To help drivers resolve these issues conveniently and affordably, 3M Auto today announced the launch of its revolutionary 3M™ Precision Shaped Grain Sheets.

3M™’s proprietary Precision-Shaped Grain technology is engineered to act like a cutting tool, slicing through metal up to five times longer for increased productivity. The technology housed in the 3M™ Precision Shaped Grain Sheets continuously fractures to form sharp points and edges – slicing cleaner and faster, lasting twice as long as other high-performance abrasives. This optimal mineral breakdown allows for a significantly longer lifespan than conventional abrasives. With these new sanding sheets, auto DIYers will be empowered to complete more body repair projects with fewer sheet changes, while applying significantly less pressure over a shorter amount of time.
