It’s often been said that heat is the number one enemy of engines.
To help keep things cooler under the hood, DEI is now offering a starter heat shield that is designed to prevent malfunctions from excessive heat exposure.
The Onyx Series Starter Shield provides thermal protection through two advanced textiles.
The outer layer 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 made of a specially treated, high temperature resistant fabric (89% silica). Combined, these materials protect the starter up to 1350°F of direct heat.
The Onyx shield has a black finish and measures 7 inches wide by 24 inches long.
The shield can be trimmed to size and fastens with a hook and loop which allows for installation without removing the starter.
The shield also can be used to wrap most master cylinders, distributors, fuel pumps and other components exposed to engine heat.
