These low profile ties are ideal to secure exhaust wrap, such as DEI’s Titanium™ Exhaust Wrap for high HP or turbo charged vehicles.
Developed and tested to provide long term, durable use under severe heat in excess of 2500°F, they can be applied in a snap and will last for years. Made from high grade 316 stainless steel, DEI’s new Stainless Steel Positive Locking Ties offer exceptional tensile strength - up to 200 lbs. for the 7 mm wide ties, or 350 lbs. for the 12 mm size.

Developed with DEI’s proprietary LR Technology, these high temperature rated sleeves provide superior thermal protection for street vehicles or race engines, protecting fuel, oil lines, spark plug and electrical wires from direct or under hood radiant heat.

Water and heat resistant, they are also ideal for Powersports – ATV/UTV, motorcycle, personal watercraft, snowmobiles, and marine use.
Avon Lake, Ohio…When the ultimate in heat protection is required, DEI is the solutions provider. DEI’s Titanium Pipe Shield developed with evolutionary LR Technology provides maximum protection outperforming traditional Mylar-backed glass fiber shields.
Extreme direct or radiant heat can damage transmissions, brake lines, wiring and hoses. DEI’s Titanium Shield clamps directly to any size exhaust pipe – auto, marine or motorcycle, to provide spot protection of sensitive electrical components, lines, cables, wires, transmissions and fire walls. Only DEI’s Titanium Pipe Shield combines a unique riveted “stand-off” design using 3.5” stainless steel clamps that provide a cooling air gap between the shield and the pipe. Combined with the heat dissipation benefits of the 2 ply material made with LR Fiber Technology, this unique design and material combination provides heat protection up to 1350°F. Mylar covered shields begin to flake or crack at 900°F.
