Silco Sleeve® firesleeve is designed to protect hoses, wires and cables from the hazards of intense heat and occasional direct flame. Firesleeve protects continuously to 500°F (260°C) and will withstand a molten splash at 2200°F (1200°C). Made of either knitted or braided high quality fiberglass yarns in a flexible substrate, it is then coated with a high-grade, fully-cured proprietary silicone rubber for increased durability and enhanced heat & flame protection. Resistant to hydraulic fluids, lubricating oils, and fuels, firesleeve insulates against energy loss in piping and hosing, protects employees from burns and provides flame and molten splash resistant protection for wires, hoses, and cables.

Braided (aerospace grade) firesleeve utilizes a braided interior fiberglass sleeve to provide the highest level of protection in critical areas potentially exposed to intense fire conditions (ex. an oil line inside of an engine compartment). In addition to being applicable for use in Aerospace applications by meeting SAE AS1072D requirements, braided firesleeve is also commonly used in Automotive, Maritime, Locomotive, Heavy Equipment and Petrochemical industries.
Knitted (industrial grade) firesleeve is commonly used in industrial applications for hose and cable protection where radiant heat and potential for molten splash are the primary concerns. Knitted firesleeve is the most common choice for Iron & Steel, OEM and other Heavy Industries.
