Heat glass fiber with silicone Tape
Non-adhesive high bulk glass fiber tape with silicone rubber stands intense heat and flame and sheds molten splash immediately.
Outstanding molten splash protection GFT Heat Tape is a knitted high bulk glass fiber tape, heavily coated with our proprietary compound of iron oxide red silicone rubber. The specially designed compound sheds molten metal splash immediately, so very little heat transfer occurs. GFT Heat Tape can withstand repeated exposures to molten steel, molten aluminum and molten glass, up to 2000°F (1090°C).
High temperature protection for hoses and cables GFT Heat Tape withstands continuous exposure to 500°F (260°C), up to 2000°F (1090°C) for 15-30 seconds. When exposed to flame, the silicone rubber transforms to a crust, creating a protective SiO2 refractory layer.
Non-adhesive install, without disconnection GFT Heat Tape has an excellent modulus of elasticity and can wrap any diameter hose or cable – typically in a spiral wrap with a 50% overlap. Can be installed without disconnecting hoses or cables.
