High Temperature Tape: Heat & Flame Resistant & Radiant Heat Reflective
This high temperature tape is heat resistant and heat reflective.
The highly polished aluminum coating reflects radiant heat and is an excellent choice for the protection of industrial wires, cables, hoses (hydraulics), pipes, tubing and equipment that is in close proximity to intense radiant heat sources such as super-hot metal slabs, liquid and molten metals or glass, open flame/plasma, engine exhaust manifolds, and for reflecting solar glint.
The most common tape is slit from 21oz foil coated fiberglass fabric. There are several other fabric choices available, including: 35oz foil coated fiberglass, 19oz foil coated Kevlar, as well as foil coated silica and foil coated Rayon.
For applications involving regular repeated movement, such as a bellows or cable track system, we offer and recommend an "AMA", or Aluminum-Mylar-Aluminum coated fiberglass. The aluminum coated Mylar withstands repeated flexing better than foil coated fabrics.
Also available is an AMA-F-SR fabric, which is AMA on one side of a Fiberglass base cloth, the the other side being Silicone Rubber coated.
These heat reflective materials generally reflect 95 to 98% of the infrared heat striking its surface.
Heat reflecting tapes are available in sizes from 1/2" through 40" wide, and is available from the Foil coated Fiberglass from stock. Tapes from the other available materials are by quotation.
High Temperature Tape: Radiant Heat Reflective
Materials that resist catching fire, burn slowly, or retard burning can be described as either "incombustible", "non-flammable", "non-combustible", "fire-resistant" or "fire-retardant". "Self-extinguishing" materials cease burning once the flame or heat source is removed. "Fireproof" is understood to mean that an object cannot burn, but few materials are truly fireproof.
Most of our products fall within one or more of the above descriptions: they resist high temperature, flame, fire, molten metal splash and weld splatter very well but may melt with prolonged exposures past their designed maximum continuous operating temperature. They can also provide OSHA, ANSI-FM & NFPA compliance and personnel protection.
Using our products to retain heat or cold within pipes, hoses, enclosures or equipment helps conserve energy and resources, and reduces operating costs.
