In the last article, I introduced you the three characteristics and advantages of silicone fibreglass fire sleeve. Let me introduce you the other advantages this piece.
Heat preservation and energy conservation
In high temperature workshops, the inner temperature is pretty high of pipes, valves and equipment. So it may cause people burned and cause heat lost if you don’t cover protection materials. Silicone fibreglass fire sleeve has better heat stability, radiation resistance and heat preservation function than other materials. Besides, it can prevent accident and conserve energy. What’s more, it prevents the heat in pipes or valves spread to the surroundings and then cause over high temperature in the workshops. This can save the cooling cost.
Damp, oil, aging and pollution resistance
Silicone fibreglass fire sleeve has strong chemical stability. That means it will not react with oil, water, acid, alkali and other substances. It can work in 260℃ for long term and will not age. The lifespan could be several decades in natural conditions. It provides great protection to the pipes, valves and equipment in such conditions and then prolong their life.
Ozone, voltage, arc and corona resistance
It’s hard for ozone and ultraviolet to decompose the sleeve because the main chain of organic silicone is Si-O. In the meantime, it has excellent electric insulation. Its dielectric loss, voltage, arc and corona resistance and volume resistivity are top among all of the materials. Besides, temperature and frequency has small influence of its electric property. Thus, it’s a stable insulation material for electronic and electric industries.
If it’s the flammable or toxic medium in the pipe, it may cause fire and damage when there was leakage. The wires will also burns because of high temperature. The sleeve is made from extreme flame resistant fibreglass braid. With the special fire retardant in the silicone, it has excellent flame retardant. What’s more, if the fire happens, it can prevent the fire spreading and protect the inner tube for a long time. Then there will be enough time for firefighting.
This time we learn the advantages of silicone fibreglass fire sleeve. That’s also the reason why it’s much more better than other protection material.
