Very High Temperature, Heat & Flame Resistant Fiberglass Rope with Stainless Steel Wire Mesh Core
This high temperature, heat and flame resistant fiberglass rope has a stainless steel wire mesh core.
This rope is fabricated from high quality type E fiberglass that will not burn and will withstand continuous exposure to temperatures of 1000°F / 520°C. This high temperature rope is used as a gasket or seal with excellent compression resistance.
There are two versions of this rope: one with a braided shell made from texturized yarn, providing high bulk and another with a fine and smooth braided shell made from filamant fiber yarn, providing an extremely clean and free of loose fiber outer shell, especially suited for applications such as paint shop booths where loose fibers are not tolerated, such as automotive assembly.
This material resists most acids and alkalis and is unaffected by most bleaches and solvents. It is highly flexible and conformable.
The base fiber is manufactured to the specifications of ASTM D-578, ASTM committee D13, and subcommittee D13.18.
High Temperature Wire Core Rope
Supplied cut to length, this metal mesh cored rope makes an excellent seal due to its compressability, and can also add EMI/RFI protection to cabinets and enclosures.
Benefits of our High-Temperature Fiberglass Heat Protection Products
Fiberglass offers excellent heat resistance, retaining more than half of its room temperature tensile strength at 675°F / 357°C, and more than 25% at 875°F / 468°C. It begins to soften at 1500°F / 815°C and melts near 2050°F / 1121°C. Non-combustible and excellent thermal conductivity to dissipate hot spots; high resistance to chemicals and unaffected by UV light.
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.
