This high temperature, heat and flame resistant graphite coated fiberglass rope will withstand temperatures of 1000°F / 537°C continuous exposure. The base high temperature and heat resistant braided fiberglass sleeving is fabricated from high quality type E fiberglass that will not burn. The rope is then coated with graphite, adding lubrication and electrical conductivity.
This rope resists molten splash and welding splatter very well as it cannot stick to the graphite.
The base fiber is manufactured to the specifications of ASTM D-578, ASTM committee D13, and subcommittee D13.18.

Very High Temperature, Heat & Flame Resistant Graphite Coated 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.
