Knitted Fiberglass Sleeve - Premium Grade - Wire Cable Hose Pipe Protection
High Temperature, Heat & Flame Resistant and Thermal Insulating
1200°F / 648°C Continuous Exposure: Higher Intermittent
This high temperature, heat & flame resistant knitted fiberglass sleeve is fabricated from high quality type E fiberglass that will not burn and will withstand continuous exposure to temperatures of 1200°F / 648°C. This sleeve provides protection for industrial wires, cables, hoses (hydraulics), tubing and pipes, along with providing thermal insulation and personnel protection.
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. This product is 100% Asbestos free. Non-Asbestos.
Knitted sleeve is less dense than the same size braided sleeve, but can provide similar spacing protection for hoses and cables as braided at a lower cost.
Available By-The-Foot and in 100 foot lengths. Minimum order value may apply to By-The-Foot quantities.
