Braided sleeve is constructed of high quality type E glass that will not burn and will withstand continuous exposure to temperatures of 1000°F/540°C. This material resists most acids and alkalis; is unaffected by most bleaches and solvents; and is highly flexible and conformable. The basic fiber is manufactured in accordance with specifications outlined in ASTM D-578, ASTM committee D13, and subcommittee D13.18.
The addition of an acrylic saturant adds rigidity and abrasive strength to the product and reduces the likelihood of end fray. This added rigidity results in a sleeving that is easy to apply over long lengths of hose or cable. Another feature of this product is the large braid angle, which allows for significant expansion of the sleeve if necessary. This allows for easy installation, for example, in situations where a hose may have an in-line coupling or adapter to a larger size hose; or similarly where cables may have a splice. Applications include thermal insulation and/or protection of industrial hoses and cables as well as affording personnel protection from high temperature hoses and cables.
