AVON LAKE, Ohio (Aug. 3, 2016) — Design Engineering Inc. (DEI) has made two new thermal protection products available through AutoZone retail outlets across the U.S.
DEI's Titanium Protect-A-Sleeve with LR technology and Reflect-A-GOLD products are now offered at AutoZone's 4,500-plus locations. The new offerings join DEI's flagship thermal wrap product on AutoZone's shelves — the DEI Titanium Exhaust Wrap with LR Technology.
DEI said its Protect-A-Sleeve with LR Technology provides thermal protection for wires, lines and cables from the damaging effect of direct heat (up to 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit) and radiant heat (up to 2,500 degrees). It is available at AutoZone in the size of 1/2-inch by 4-feet. (Part No. 010065).
The material used in DEI's Titanium Exhaust Wrap and Protect-A-Sleeve is composed of pulverized lava rock, which the company said is extruded into fibers and woven into a proprietary weave to provide a titanium-like strength. It is similar to carbon fiber in appearance and protects sensitive components at risk of heat soak, the firm added.
According to DEI, Reflect-A-GOLD is a metalized polyamide polymer backed by a high temperature pressure sensitive adhesive used to reflect heat on firewalls, air boxes, air induction tubing, bulkheads, engine covers, floors, seat bottoms and other areas in need of thermal protection.
Lightweight and low profile, Reflect-A-GOLD is designed to resist ultraviolet degradation and can be trimmed to size. It is available at AutoZone in a 12-by-12-foot sheet (Part No. 010066).
