AVON LAKE, OH (07.03.2020) – When it comes to technologically advanced turbocharger protection, Design Engineering, Inc. has again raised the bar with its new GEN-3 Titanium Turbo Shields with LR Technology.
Featuring a silicone-coated outer layer, multiple stainless steel and silica inner layers, and enhanced seam strength, the GEN-3 Titanium Turbo Shield was made to be the strongest, most heat-resistant shield available anywhere.
“By developing advanced textiles and diving deep into what is needed to control turbo heat, we incorporated all our experience to build the absolute best turbo shield on the market— the GEN-3 Titanium Turbo Shield,” said Mike Buca DEI Product Manager.
The new GEN-3 Titanium Turbo Shield offers complete turbo protection, durability and resilience using stainless steel thread seam stitching for increased seam strength and a unique four-layer design:
- Outer Shell—DEI’s Titanium material with LR Technology is coated in silicone to insulate and hold up under extreme conditions;
- Insulation Layer—A thick layer of silica insulation keeps heat inside the turbo shield and turbo housing;
- Inner Layer—A blend of stainless steel, glass fiber and silicone add to the GEN-3 insulating and thermal properties;
- Inner Cover—A stainless steel mesh is incorporated as a protective barrier and serves as an air gap between the mesh and inner layer fabric. Constructed to hold up against the highest temperatures, the innovative mesh won’t break down or become brittle with heat.
Customers can choose to purchase just the shield or a Complete Kit that includes the shield as well as a 2″-by-15-foot roll of Titanium Exhaust Wrap for down pipes, two 20″ stainless steel Locking Ties and 5 feet of safety wire used to secure the shield.
GEN-3 Titanium Turbo Shields are available to fit T3, T4, T6, T25/T28 and T6X turbos.
