1500°F/815°C: Very High Temperature, Heat & Flame Resistant Vermiculite
Coated Fiberglass Rope
This high temperature, heat and flame resistant vermiculite coated fiberglass rope will withstand temperatures of 1500°F / 815°C continuous exposure. The base High Temperature fiberglass rope is fabricated from high quality type E fiberglass that will not burn. The rope is then coated with a vermiculite dispersant.
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.
Applications for this product include as seals on oven and kiln doors, fireplace doors, industrial and laboratory ovens. The vermiculite coating also adds abrasion resistance to the rope.
There are 4 styles of rope available: Knitted Soft and Knitted Dense Rope; Twisted Rope and Square Braided Fiberglass Rope (also called Square Dry Packing).
Fiberglass Rope: Soft / Dense
Twisted Fiberglass Rope
Square Fiberglass Rope
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.
