Aluminum Foil or Film Coated Fiberglass Heat Reflective Sleeve with metal snap closure

High Temperature, Heat & Flame Resistant, Radiant Heat Reflective Protection for Wire, Cables, Hoses and Tubing

450°F / 232°C Continuous Exposure / 1000°F / 537°C Peak Exposure

Available in two versions: Aluminum Foil coated fiberglass base material - or Aluminized PET Film coated fiberglass base material.

Aluminum Foil version is suitable for static applications with little to none movement after installation.

Aluminum Film version is suitable for repetitive flexing, movement or high vibration installations.

These sleeves with snap closure can be used to protect industrial wires, cables, hoses (hydraulics), piping and tubing from radiant heat sources such as glowing steel slab, liquid metal pour stream, infrared heaters and other similar sources.

For the aluminum foil version - a layer of highly polished aluminum foil is calendared under high pressure and with an adhesive onto a high temperature fiberglass base fabric.  That fabric is slit into an tape, which is then sewn into a sleeve.

For the aluminum film version - an aluminized PET film is laminated onto a high temperature fiberglass base fabric - which is then slit into a tape - and then sewn into a sleeve.

The snap closure allows the sleeve to be used as a retrofit sleeve.

This aluminized sleeve reflects more than 95% of the radiant energy that hits its surface, keeping the underlying cables, hoses and wires cool.  Available in sizes from 1/2" through 12" ID.  Larger sizes are available under special order.  The aluminum foil coated sleeve is a silicone washed fiberglass with a weight of 20oz/square yard.   For the aluminized PET version, the fabric weight is 20oz/square yard.

Generally, aluminum foil coated fiberglass is suitable for applications involving static hoses, cables and wires.  For installation where continuous movement or flexing is involved, the aluminized PET film fiberglass is more suitable.  Also available is a solid annular stainless steel sleeve.

The reduced continuous temperature limit of this material is due to the adhesive used to help bond the aluminum foil layer to the fabric.  Notwithstanding the temperature limit, intense radiant heat can be reflected while still under the continuous temperature limit.
