DEI’s New Starter Shield Protects Components From Heat Soak Damage
Design Engineering Inc. (DEI) has introduced the Mini Versa Starter Shield designed to protect starters and other components from failure due to heat soak.
DEI says the new Mini Versa Starter Shield is constructed of an aluminized heat reflective material backed with a high temperature rated glass fiber insulation barrier. Capable of reflecting radiant heat up to 2000°F and direct heat up to 500°F, the thermal Article installs easily and can be trimmed to size.
A convenient hook and loop closure design allows the shield to wrap around the starter and attach in minutes. DEI says most starters will not require removal. Simply wrap the starter with the aluminized side out, trim length to fit and secure the edges by pressing the black loop material sewn into the material into the sewn in strip of black hook material.
Developed with a universal design to fit most mini sized starters (5.25 inches wide x 16.5 inches long) the shield is also ideal for multiple components where heat can affect performance—master cylinders, distributors, fuel pumps and more.
