High Grade Silicone Rubber Bonded to Woven Fiberglass Matting

REX Silicone Shield is designed to protect hoses, wires and cables from the hazards of high heat and occasional flame. It protects continuously to 260 °C / 500 °F and will withstand a molten splash at 1200 °C / 2200 °F. Made of woven fiberglass yarns in a flexible substrate, it is then coated with a high grade silicone rubber.
Resistant to hydraulic fluids, lubricating oils and fuels, REX Silicon Shield with a minimum average weight per square yard of 96 ounces, insulates against energy loss in piping and hosing, protects employees from burns and allows shielding of induction furnace cables from splashes of molten metal.
With a minimum average per square yard of 96 ounces, it is available in 40 inch wide, cut to length rolls.
