Braided High Bulk Texturized Fiberglass Sleeve - Premium Grade - Wire Cable Hose Protection
High Temperature Sleeve: Heat & Flame Resistant & Thermal Insulating
1200°F / 648°C Continuous Exposure:
This high temperature and heat resistant fiberglass sleeve is a braided fiberglass (fibreglass / glassfibre) sleeve made from high bulk texturized yarns, fabricated from high quality type E fiberglass that will not burn and will withstand continuous exposure to temperatures of 1200°F / 648°C. It provides excellent protection for industrial wires, cables, hydraulic hoses, tube and pipes and also provides thermal insulation and personnel protection.
This high temperature sleeve / heat resistant sleeve resists most acids and alkalis and is unaffected by most bleaches and solvents. It is highly flexible and conformable.
The base fiber is manufactured to the specifications of ASTM D-578, ASTM committee D13, and subcommittee D13.18.
This product is 100% Asbestos free. Non-Asbestos.
A higher temperature rated vermiculite coated version of this sleeve is also available.

Benefits of our High-Temperature Fiberglass Heat Protection Products
Fiberglass offers excellent heat resistance, retaining more than half of its room temperature tensile strength at 675°F / 357°C, and more than 25% at 875°F / 468°C. It begins to soften at 1500°F / 815°C and melts near 2050°F / 1121°C. Non-combustible and excellent thermal conductivity to dissipate hot spots; high resistance to chemicals and unaffected by UV light.
