FireFlex Silicone jacketed fiberglass sleeving is the choice of professionals in racing and other industries where protection from constant temperatures approaching 500°F is mandatory. FireFlex fiberglass/silicone sleeving is engineered to protect hoses, cables and wire harnesses from damage due to exposure to extreme heat, open flame, molten splash and welding sparks. The thick, high temperature fiberglass sleeve is jacketed with a non-permeable, heavy silicone coating that is flexible enough to follow tight radius curves, resists all automotive chemicals and solvents, and provides a substantial level of abrasion and puncture protection. FireFlex is completely non-conductive, will not melt, delaminate, become brittle or support combustion under normal conditions, and provides a professional level solution to thermal protection needs in any application.
FireFlex Aero is engineered from a dense braided fiberglass sleeve and a thick coating of self-extinguishing high temperature silicone rubber that withstands 500°F continuous exposure, and molten splash up to 2,000°F. Almost every aviation engine - turbine, turboprop or piston; civilian and military - uses FireFlex Aero to protect critical hoses and wiring in the event of an engine compartment fire. FireFlex Aero meets the specification of AS1072, allowing qualified hose assemblies to pass the fire resistance testing specification of AS1055D. FireFlex Aero is highly resistant to hydraulic fluids, lubricating oils, and fuels. The dense braided fiberglass interior insulates against energy loss in piping and hosing, while the high density silicone coating protects personnel from accidental injury.
FIREFLEX WRAP (FIW) protects and shields important hoses and cables from extreme heat and catastrophic flame outbreaks. It protects continuously to 500°F and will withstand a molten splash at 2200°F. Its unique hook and loop closure system allows for installation without the need to remove and reconnect fittings and terminations. The reusable closure additionally allows for easy repair, minimizing labor and costly downtime.
