Heat Reflective Sleeve - Aluminum Foil and Aluminized PET Film Coated Fiberglass


Radiant Heat Reflective Protection for Wire, Cables, Hoses and Tubing

These high temperature, heat resistant and radiant heat reflective sleeves 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, engine headers, infrared heaters and other similar heat sources.

Aluminized PET Film Coated Fiberglass Heat Reflective Continuous Sleeve


Radiant Heat Reflective Protection for Wire, Cables, Hoses and Tubing

Available in 100 and 250 foot spools - also available in cut by-the-foot lengths

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

This high temperature, heat resistant and radiant heat reflective sleeve 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.

The sleeve slides easily over wires, cables and hoses due to the smooth inner fiberglass surface.  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 2.5" ID.

This sleeve is also used extensively for automotive and truck under-hood engine compartment applications.

Aluminized PET coated fiberglass is suitable for applications where flexing is anticipated and may be more suitable to aluminum foil coated sleeves as the aluminum foil in flexing applications can crack and peel.

Aluminized PET Film Coated Fiberglass Heat Reflective Sleeve - High Bulk Convoluted


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

Available in 4 foot / 121.9cm long sticks.

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

This high temperature, heat resistant and radiant heat reflective sleeve 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.

Aluminized PET coated fiberglass is suitable for applications where flexing is anticipated and may be more suitable to aluminum foil coated sleeves as the aluminum foil in flexing applications can crack and peel.

This heat reflecting sleeve is a high-bulk and convoluted construction. The fiberglass substrate has a PET inserted filament included with the fiberglass fibers, providing good crush resistance and pushback against compression.

Aluminized PET Film Coated Fiberglass Heat Reflective Split Sleeve with adhesive closure strip - 4 foot / 121.9cm length


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

This high temperature, heat resistant and radiant heat reflective sleeve 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.

This aluminized PET film coated fiberglass split sleeve has an adhesive strip along one long edge to close the sleeve after installation.  This 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 1/4" through 2" ID.  The length of these sleeves is 4 feet / 121.9 cm .

This sleeve is also used extensively for automotive, construction, mining and truck under-hood engine compartment applications.  The fiberglass substrate also has a PET inserted filament included with the fiberglass fibers, resulting in a sleeve that resists crushing and actively pushes back against compression.

Aluminum Foil or Aluminized PET Film Coated Fiberglass Heat Reflective Sewn Sleeve


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
  • Aluminized PET Film coated fiberglass base material.

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

Aluminized PET Film version is suitable for repetitive flexing, movement or high vibration installations.
  • 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.

These sewn sleeves 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.

Other versions of the same materials are available with hook and loop closure or zipper closure; resulting in a removable or 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.  Two weights of the aluminum foil fabric are used to make these sleeves: a 21oz/square yard and a 35oz/square yard.  The 21oz material has better aluminum adhesion for applications requiring some flexing.  For the aluminized PET version, the fabric weight is 20oz/square yard.

A four layer aluminum foil coated fabric is available.  This fabric is more robust, but quite stiffer than a single layer aluminum coated fabric.

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.

Aluminum Foil and Film Coated Fiberglass Heat Reflective Sleeve with Hook and Loop 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

Two versions of this sleeve are available:  One with an aluminum foil coating and the other with an aliminized film coating.

Both are coated onto fiberglass substrate fabric.  The result is a high temperature, heat resistant and radiant heat reflective sleeve 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.

With both versions, the fabric is slit into a tape, which then has hook and loop closure added to result in a sleeve that can be installed and removed at will.

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

Aluminized PET film coated fiberglass sleeve is a high temperature, heat resistant and radiant heat reflective sleeve 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.

The base fabric is slit into a tape, which then has a zipper closure added to result in a sleeve that can be installed and removed at will.

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" through 12" ID.  Larger sizes are available under special order.  Fabric weight used to make these sleeves is 21oz/sq.yd.  Other fabric weights may be available upon request.

The material is suitable for use in high flex and movement applications.

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