Default Chemical shearing of DNA specifically (not RNA)

Hi,

I just wondered, are there any sequencing protocol kits around for shearing DNA by chemical means? I know that heating RNA in presence of divalent cations can be used to fragment RNA (i.e. Illumina TruSeq protocol kits). Do similar kits exist/or are methods applied for fragmenting DNA prior to sequencing?

Cheers,
Jamie
