Braided Kevlar® Aramid Sleeve for wire cable hose protection
320°F / 160°C Continuous Exposure: Higher Intermittent
FlameShieldä high temperature and heat resistant Kevlar aramid sleeve is fabricated from high quality yarns that will not burn and will withstand continuous exposure to temperatures of 320°F / 160°C. It provides excellent protection for industrial wires, cables, hoses (hydraulics), tube and pipes and also provides thermal insulation and personnel protection. Kevlar is highly cut resistant, making this sleeve especially suited where contact with sharp edges is a concern.
This sleeve is available in a Standard wall thickness and a Heavy Duty thick wall. As well, the weave of the Heavy Duty version is dense and tight, providing superior coverage.
This high temperature sleeve / heat resistant sleeve resists most acids and alkalis and is unaffected by most bleaches and solvents. The Standard sleeve is highly flexible and conformable while the Heavy Duty version is stiffer but still very flexible.
Both sleeves do experience end fray when cut as there is no binder present in the sleeve; there are several methods of reducing the fray: please visit our FAQ section for further information.
