DEI Unveils Form-A-Shield for Heat Protection

Jan. 25, 2017

Design Engineering Inc. (DEI) has introduced Form-A-Shield, a thermal Article applied direct to hot surfaces to provide heat protection.

Made of flexible 10 mil dimpled aluminum with ¼-inch high temperature basalt insulation, Form-A-Shield withstands direct temps to +1400°F, according to the company.

Form-A-Shield offers outstanding thermal protection against direct and radiant heat for electrical components, wire, hose or plastic parts, positioned in close proximity to headers, manifolds, mufflers or transmissions.

It can be applied either mechanically, or with DEI’s Hi-Temp Spray Adhesive.

DEI says the Article is extremely pliable, easy to trim and conforms to almost any shape. Sizes are available in either 42” x 48” (Part # 010516) or 21” x 48” (Part # 010517) and are ready for immediate shipment.
