The new mini DEI Versa Shield protects starters and other components from failure due to heat soak, according to the company. Constructed of an aluminized heat reflective material backed with a high temperature rated glass fiber insulation barrier, the Versa Shield is capable of reflecting radiant heat up to 2000Â°F and direct heat up to 500°F.
The thermal product installs easily and can be trimmed to size, according to DEI. Its hook-and-loop closure design allows the shield to wrap around the starter and attach in minutes. 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 by 16.5-inches long) the shield is also ideal for multiple components where heat can affect performance, like master cylinders, distributors, and fuel pumps and more, according to DEI.
