DEI Corvette C7 Catalytic Converter Shield 010069
Chevrolet located the engine oil cooler and oil filter on the C7 Corvette close to the driver side catalytic converter causing heat transfer into the engine oil. Possibly making the ECM send the car into limp mode. By installing our converter heat shield, we block this heat transfer and prevent the oil temperature from rising.
- Dual layer design - Outer layer is hi-temp Titanium, Inner layer is 89% silica to handle extreme heat
- Reduce heat soak into oil
- Easy installation with stainless steel Locking Ties
- Helps prevent Corvette from going into "limp mode" from engine oil becoming too hot
Extreme heat can rob power and potentially damage engines, transmissions, hoses, and sensitive electrical components. DEI, a market leader in thermal protection, has introduced a revolutionary advancement in pipe shield technology that greatly outperforms Mylar-backed glass fiber shields.
DEI’s Titanium Pipe Shield combines the high heat tolerance of DEI’s proprietary LR fiber technology with a unique rivet-based clamp shield design to improve heat dissipation and cooling. Glass fiber shields can begin to fail at 900°F with the Mylar outer material cracking and flaking off. DEI’s Titanium Pipe Shield provides heat protection up to 1350°F.
LR fiber technology is a two-ply material. The outer layer is made from pulverized and stranded lava rock into a proprietary tightly woven weave for durability and strength. The inside material is made of a special high temperature resistant fabric (89% silica) designed to withstand 350 degrees more heat than glass fiber. This proprietary fiber technology combined with DEI’s unique shield standoff bracket design provides an air gap between the shield and pipe that together provides the maximum potential for cooling and heat dissipation.
With the strategic placement of DEI’s Titanium Pipe Shield near transmissions, brake lines, floorboards, body panels, diesel exhaust stacks or motorcycle pipes, radiant heat can be controlled for maximum protection and performance. Other uses include isolated areas such as sections of the exhaust pipe after the collector, an area that can heat transmission fluid, or along the path of an exhaust system in proximity of gas tanks, differentials and rear facias. The shield is designed for multiple automotive applications as well as marine, powersports, diesel and industrial applications where heat dissipation and thermal control is needed.
