Fiberglass Gasket Sealing Rope: Knitted Soft, Knitted Dense, Twisted, Square Braid
High Temperature Heat Resistant
1200°F / 648°C Continuous Exposure: Higher Intermittent
This high temperature rope is heat and flame resistant. This knitted rope is fabricated with high quality type E fiberglass that will not burn and will withstand continuous exposure to temperatures of 1200°F / 648°C.
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.
Typical applications for this high temperature rope include as a gasket or seal on boiler, coke oven, industrial oven and wood stove/pellet stove doors. It is also used for crucible packing and pollution control equipment, high temperature tying and lacing cords, as a core rope in tadpole tapes and as a pipe wrap.
As a fireproof rope, this rope will not burn, but will melt at temperatures above 1500°F.
