Silicone Rubber Coated Fiberglass Rope
High Temperature & Heat Resistant
High Temperature and Heat Resistant silicone rubber coated fiberglass (fibreglass or glass-fibre) rope is designed to be used as a seal or gasket in environments that are exposed to the hazards of high heat, liquids or steam. This rope is also resistant to molten metal splash, slag, sparks and contamination.
It is available completely coated or with partial rope exposed. Often used as a seal and gasket in boiler applications.
This rope is fabricated from knitted type E fiberglass and is then coated with a high grade high-temperature silicone rubber.
High Temperature and Heat Resistant Silicone Rubber Coated Fiberglass Rope 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.
