- Wire, cable, hose, pipe and tube protection
1500°F / 815°C Continuous Exposure:
Higher Intermittent

FlameShield™ 1500
vermiculite coated tape is a high temperature, heat and flame resistant thermal insulating tape that will withstand temperatures of 1500°F / 815°C continuous exposure.  The base High Temperature braided fiberglass sleeving is fabricated from high quality type E fiberglass that will not burn.  The sleeve is then coated with a vermiculite dispersant.

This material resists most acids and alkalis and is unaffected by most bleaches and solvents.  It is highly flexible and conformable.

Applications for this product include thermal insulation and/or protection of wires, cables, hoses, pipe and tube, as well as affording energy savings and personnel protection.

The vermiculite coating also adds abrasion resistance to the sleeve.

The tape is available in Plain and Drop Warp Styles.  Drop Warp tape has several of the center lengthwise yarns missing during weaving, and allows the tape to be easily used for bolt-hole applications (sometimes called ladder tape).

Tested and certified to meet ASTM E 162, ASTM E 662 and
SMP 800-C for surface flammability, smoke and toxic gas production.
