Avon Lake, OH (June 4, 2014)…The Atomic Deuce is the latest project of MSD Performance designated to debut during the 2014 Hot Rod Power Tour. This classic five window ’32 Coupe that was made popular in the movie American Graffiti features Boom Mat damping material and Floor & Tunnel Shield II.
Boom Mat’s damping material and Floor & Tunnel Shield II are the thermal tuning products of choice for this classic build developed to showcase many of MSD’s performance products. With a goal of keeping the interior cool, comfortable and quiet, MSD selected Boom Mat damping material to cover the entire floor, cowl, roof and doors. The damping material reduces low frequency noise that can cause vibration and adds an extra layer of protection from ambient and direct heat. Flexible and easy to trim, this material is easy to install on metal, plastic or fiberglass and virtually eliminates all unwanted road and engine noise.
Avon Lake, OH…Every vehicle has a unique acoustic signature caused by the combination of engine noise and modifications. Boom Mat damping material greatly enhances cabin acoustics, reducing vibration and noise that can interfere with a quiet ride and quality stereo performance. Developed primarily to eliminate low frequency noise, Boom Mat damping material works by sealing interior holes and leaks and damping structure born noise. Boom Mat now offers its quality damping material in a convenient 30 sheet pack of 12-1/2” x 24”; large enough to complete the interior of a large SUV, wagon or van.
AVON LAKE, OHIO…Now there is a way to keep your vehicle quiet and cool with one easy to use kit that has everything you need to improve vibration noise and reduce heat transfer in small to medium sized vehicles. Boom Mat™, the leader in thermal acoustic control, introduces the Boom Mat Thermal & Acoustic Interior Kit. This recently introduced kit includes 27 sq. ft. of Under Carpet Lite that blocks 85% of heat from a vehicle’s engine, transmission or exhaust, 25 sq. ft. of Boom Mat damping material, developed to reduce structure-borne vibration, squeaks and rattles, and one 18 oz. can of Boom Mat Spray-On.
Avon Lake, Ohio…Radiator Relief™ performance coolant additives are designed to reduce the surface tension of radiator coolant by eliminating bubbles that cling to and create hot spots on your engine block. DEI’s line of radiator chemical products provide an easy, no mess solution for any gas or diesel powered, water cooled engine and compatible with all types of radiator materials and coolant mixtures.
Radiator Relief compatible with all types of anti-freeze products, quickly increases heat transferred through the radiator reducing coolant temperatures up to 30°F, and is now available in either a 16 oz. or 32 oz. size.
Radiator Relief for DIESELS, blended for extreme use vehicles, offers the same protection as the original formula but in a concentrated formula for larger capacity radiator systems. Both have corrosion inhibitors that protect against mineral deposits and rust and contain an anti-foaming agent.

Designed as an alternative to plastic ties and tape, these Hi-Temp Shrink Tubes have a thick wall structure and are made of material that meets Military spec DTL-23053/5C for a water tight, flame retardant seal that is resistant to debris, dirt and abrasive solvents. Offering a clean professional look, they are flexible and easy to install.
Avon Lake,OH…DEI’s new Stainless Steel Positive Locking Ties are specially designed for any application where there is extreme high heat – street, race, marine and powersports. 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.

Avon Lake, OH…DEI’s new Titanium Protect-A-Sleeve™ with LR Technology™ offers the best possible sleeve protection on the market today. Developed specifically for any application where extreme high heat is present, these Titanium™ sleeves will protect wires, lines and cables when exposed up to 1800°F direct heat/2500°F radiant. 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. The ½” ID sleeves will fit many of today’s larger diameter spark plug wires for protection against hot exhaust manifolds and headers. 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.
