Firesleeve Cable and Hose Protection:
High Temperature Silicone Rubber Coated Fiberglass Sleeve
500°F / 260°C Continuous Rating with higher short exposure
Firesleeve (sometimes spelled fire sleeve or fire-sleeve) is the perfect choice for the protection of industrial hydraulic hoses and lines, pneumatic lines, fuel & oil lines, brake lines, wires and cables from exposure to high and extreme heat conditions. The extra thick special formulation of silicone rubber on this firesleeve sheds molten metals, slag, welding splatter, electrical or grinding sparks and contamination. Firesleeve also provides protection from ozone, UV and abrasion.
The standard color for firesleeve is red-oxide, (black is also standard for sizes of 2" ID or less). Custom colors may be available or may be ordered subject to minimum lot size.
Firesleeve is normally supplied in 100 foot lengths, but custom lengths of up to 500 feet are also available.
Also used as an insulation sleeve for cold temperature heat trace protection of lines and hoses. May be multi-layered with other sleeves underneath or more firesleeve layers.
The industrial grade Firesleeve is fabricated from a knitted fiberglass yarn substrate, while the aviation grade SAE AS1072 Fire Sleeve is fabricated from a thicker and denser braided fiberglass yarn.
Firesleeve is available in sizes ranging from 0.25" Inside Diameter through 5" I.D. in 125 size steps.
Used in many applications; as an industrial firesleeve, marine firesleeve and aerospace firesleeve.
Withstands 500°F/260°C continuous exposure; Molten Splash at 2200°F/1205°C for periods up to 15 minutes and short
excursions to 3000°F/1650°C.
Molten metals simply slide off of the extra heavy duty coating of High-Temperature Silicone Rubber on all of these firesleeve products, providing excellent burn-through protection.
