Design Engineering Inc (DEI), a leading manufacturer of heat and sound solutions for high-performance applications, has introduced its latest product ‘Form-A-Shield’. The new design is a thermal product that can be applied direct to hot surfaces to provide outstanding heat protection. Made of flexible, dimpled aluminum with 1/4″ high temperature basalt insulation, DEI states that its Form-A-Shield is capable of withstanding direct exposure to temperatures of 1400°F.
The flexible nature of Form-A-Shield allows the component to offer what DEI states is ‘outstanding thermal protection against direct and radiant heat’ for a number of applications such as the protection of electrical components, wire, hose or plastic parts, positioned in close proximity to headers, manifolds, silencers or transmissions.
The heatshield can be applied either mechanically, or with DEI’s Hi-Temp Spray Adhesive. The product is said to be extremely pliable, easy to trim and conforms to almost any shape. Sizes are available in either 42″ x 48″ or 21″ x 48″ and are ready for immediate shipment.
