If you need insulation against extreme temperatures, you have come to the right place. Several different options are available for automotive, aeronautical, marine, rail, and industrial applications. High temperature and flame retardant sleeves are built for the most extreme conditions. Most are made of fiberglass, and less commonly from ceramic and material blends. Some of these sleevings operate with no problems in temperatures up to 3000°F! In addition, many models can protect cables from abrasion, moisture, chemicals and fungus.
The Importance of Protection and Insulation against High Temperatures
Our headquarters are based in Florida, so it's no surprise that we're experts in protecting things against the heat. While the sun is strong and the temperatures are high here in the sunshine state, the kind of protection we are focused on is insulation for your automotive, aeronautical, marine, rail, and industrial applications.
What's The Big Deal about Insulation?
Put simply, for some environments, cables just can't withstand the harshness on their own. For example, if you are driving your car, boat, or flying a plane you are constantly relying on a LOT of different wires and cables to get you from point A to point B safely. These kinds of crafts often reach high temperatures and it's important to do as much as possible to keep your engine safe.
Our high temperature and flame retardant sleeves are specifically built for the most extreme conditions. Most of them are made of durable fiberglass, and some can even withstand temperatures up to 3000 degrees Fahrenheit. That's no joke! Aside from heat, we have sleeves that can keep cables safe from damage, chemicals and water.
The Different Types of Sleeving
When you are looking to purchase insulation or sleeving, it is important to choose the best one for your needs. Expandable braided sleeving is a great option for keeping cables organized in situations where flammability and high temperature endurance are of concern. Some types offer a little less hardcore protection but are perfect for high temperatures and low voltage applications like commercial and home appliances.
When it comes to caring for your car, it's clearly super important to make sure you are purchasing the perfect product that will fit your needs flawlessly. The Thermashield heat resistant sleeve protects surfaces, cables, wires, assemblies, and more against extreme heat, and it is super easy to install. It is perfect for your vehicle because it resists gasoline, chemicals, salt water and UV rays.
Fiberglass sleeving is heavy duty and can withstand truly scorching heat. It's great for environments like factories, labs, foundries, welding shops, and other places were high heat is a concern. It is also resistant to chemicals, solvents, moisture, abrasion, vibration, and electricity - so you can truly use it in any environment.
Last but not least, side entry wrap sleeves are the ideal balance of protection and accessibility. It can be used in any application from aircraft wiring to lighting, and installs super easily. All you have to do is wrap it around your cables and you are good to go. When you need to access them next time, all you have to do is unwrap the sleeving and do what you need to do.
