Silicone Rubber Coated Fiberglass Woven Slit Tape - Premium Grade
500°F / 260°C Continuous Exposure: Higher Intermittent
Withstands Molten Splash & Welding Spatter/ Grinding Sparks
FireTape™ high temperature, heat & flame resistant slit tape is similar to our firesleeve except it can be installed in situations where tubular firesleeve cannot be used, as when industrial hoses, wires and cables cannot be disconnected to install a sleeve. (our firesleeve with velcro closure is also an alternative).
Made from a heavy woven base fiberglass material and then coated with a thick layer of high temperaature silicone rubber.
Being a woven base material it has very minimal elasticity compared to knit tapes or slit tape make from braided firesleeve.
This high temperature tape is the perfect choice for protection of industrial hydraulic hoses and lines, pneumatic lines, fuel & oil lines, brake lines, wires, cables, tube and pipe from exposure to high and extreme heat conditions. The extra thick special formulation of silicone rubber sheds molten metals, slag, welding spatter, electrical or grinding sparks and contamination. This tape also provides protection from ozone, UV and abrasion and provides thermal insulation.
This slit tape is also used to fabricate various shields and barriers for equipment and personnel protection from hot processes including liquid metal splatter, sparks, slag, flame expsoure and heat.
This tape is produced in lengths of up to 100 feet.
Fabricated from a woven heavy duty fiberglass (fibreglass / glassfibre) yarn fabric, and is available in widths from 1" to 40" wide. Due to the box weave construction and silicone rubber inpregnation the tape has no elasticity.
This tape can also be used to wrap complex shapes or varying dimension tapered pipes. Typically, the tape is overlaped by 50% when winding, which provides the entire assembly with stability. Safety wire, band clamps, ties or End Wrap Tape can be used to secure the tape in place after installation.high temperature, heat, flame, pyro and fire resistant sleeve and jacket provides molten splash & weld splatter protection to wires, cables, hoses, tubes and pipes. SnapSleeveä (patent pending) provides a field installable protection sleeve utilizing metal snaps instead of Velcro closure strips.
