vermiculite coated fiberglass sleeve is a high temperature, heat and flame resistant thermal insulating sleeve that will withstand temperatures of up to 1500°F / 815°C continuous exposure. The base high temperature braided fiberglass sleeve is fabricated from high quality type E fiberglass that will not burn. The sleeve is then coated with a vermiculite dispersant.
Applications for this product include thermal insulation, protection of industrial wires, cables, hose (hydraulics), tube and pipe as well as affording personnel protection and energy savings.
The vermiculite coating also adds abrasion resistance and anti-fray properties to the sleeve.
