Introducing ONYX Series Black Pipe Shield, Starter Shield and Turbo Shield
Avon Lake, OH (February 18, 2016)…The new ONYX Series™ products from DEI offer the highest level of heat protection for components that undergo severe duty or extreme heat. This new line combines two technologically advanced textiles into a dual layer for maximum thermal control. The outer layer with its rich black finish 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 a high temperature resistant fabric that is 89% Silica. This all new product line provides heat protection for components up to 1350°F.
ONYX Series Black Pipe Shield – This new textile technology, combined with DEI’s unique stainless steel standoff brackets, creates an air gap providing maximum cooling and heat dissipation. Designed to be flexible, the ONYX Shield (size 4” x 8”) fits many different applications and pipe diameters. In addition to use as a protective barrier on exhaust pipes, auto or motorcycle, the shield is recommended as a heat barrier between transmissions, brake lines, hoses, electrical wiring, gas tanks, body panels, bumpers and more. Two 3-1/2” stainless steel clamps are included and the outer edge features a surge stitch for added strength and durability. Part #010496.
