1500°F/815°C: Very High Temperature, Heat & Flame Resistant Thermal Insulating
Vermiculite Coated Fiberglass Tape
This high temperature, heat and flame resistant thermal insulating vermiculite coated fiberglass tape will withstand temperatures of 1500°F / 815°C continuous exposure.  The base High Temperature braided fiberglass sleeving is fabricated from high quality type E fiberglass that will not burn.  The sleeve 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.
Very High-Temperature Vermiculite Coated Fiberglass Tape
Applications for this product include thermal insulation and/or protection of wires, cables, hoses, pipe and tube, as well as affording energy savings and personnel protection.

The vermiculite coating also adds abrasion resistance to the sleeve.

The tape is available in Plain and Drop Warp Styles.  Drop Warp tape has several of the center lengthwise yarns missing during weaving, and allows the tape to be easily used for bolt-hole applications (sometimes called ladder tape).

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.
