Asbestos Alternative, Substitute & Replacement Materials: Sleeve, Tape, Rope, Fabric & Insulation
Most fiberglass and silica based materials can be used as an alternative or replacement to asbestos.
These high temperature and heat resistant fiberglass sleeves, tapes, ropes, fabrics and insulation can provide the same protection and insulation value as asbestos.
All of our high temperature, heat and flame resistant materials are totally 100% non-asbestos.
More information about asbestos can be found at wikipedia and the US EPA web sites.
Materials that resist catching fire, burn slowly, or retard burning can be described as either "incombustible", "non-flammable", "non-combustible", "fire-resistant" or "fire-retardant". "Self-extinguishing" materials cease burning once the flame or heat source is removed. "Fireproof" is understood to mean that an object cannot burn, but few materials are truly fireproof.
Most of our products fall within one or more of the above descriptions: they resist high temperature, flame, fire, molten metal splash and weld splatter very well but may melt with prolonged exposures past their designed maximum continuous operating temperature. They can also provide OSHA, ANSI-FM & NFPA compliance and personnel protection.
Using our products to retain heat or cold within pipes, hoses, enclosures or equipment helps conserve energy and resources, and reduces operating costs.
