Firesleeve VC is the perfect choice for protecting hydraulic hoses and lines, pneumatic lines, fuel & oil lines, brake lines, wires and cables from exposure to high and extreme heat conditions. The extra thick special formulation of silicone rubber sheds molten metals, slag, welding splatter, electrical or grinding sparks and contamination. Silco Shield VC also provides protection from ozone, UV and abrasion. The standard colour is red-oxide.
We take our heavy duty braided substrate firesleeve and add Velcrotapes hook and loop to result in a firesleeve than can be easily installed on long hose or cable runs, or on hose and cables that cannot be detached from their installation. This retrofit solution allows the sleeve to be added, or replaced conveniently - this makes for an easy to use Electic Arc Furnace cable cover (EAF cable cover).
The smallest standard I.D. is 1" and the largest standard I.D. is 12". Larger I.D.s are possible by fabricating multiple fabric widths together, with an almost limitless I.D. size being the result. Firesleeve with Velcro uses 3/4" wide Velcro tapes on IDs from 1" through 3 3/4" and 2" wide Velcrotapes on 4" through 12" I.D. fabrications.
