Braided Silica Sleeve for wire cable & hose protection
High Temperature, Heat & Flame Resistant & Thermal Insulating
1800°F / 982°C Continuous Exposure: Higher Intermittent
FlameShieldä InSilMaxä extreme high temperature, heat, flame, fire & pyro resistant braided silica sleeve/jacket is an excellent replacement to asbestos and ceramic sleeves or wrapping tape. This sleeve provides thermal insulation and protection for industrial wires, cables, hoses (hydraulics), tubes and pipes.
Highly durable and extremely flexible and has very low shrink when heated. A specialty coating provides excellent abrasion protection and adds to the tensile strength.
Woven from an extremely pure silica base fiber (SiO2) and can be used at 1800°F / 982°C continuously with excursions to 3000°F / 1650°C.
Can be layered with other materials for enhanced insulation protection.
