Silicone Fire Sleeve has eight features
1、Safety and environmental protection, to protect workers’ health
Alkali-free glass fiber has special tensile strength, no wrinkling or fracture, vulcanization resistance, non-toxic, halogen-free and smoke-free, no pure oxygen combustion, good insulation performance, silicone curing organic, strengthen its safety and environmental protection performance, effectively protect the health of workers and reduce the incidence of occupational diseases. Unlike asbestos products, it is extremely harmful to human health and the environment.
2、Excellent high temperature resistance
The silicone structure on the surface of the fire hose contains both organic groups and inorganic structures. This special composition and molecular structure makes it combine the characteristics of organic materials and inorganic materials in one. Compared with other polymers, fireproof sleeving is resistant to high temperatures. The main chain structure is silicon-oxygen (SI-O) bond, with a CC bond binding energy of 82.6 kcal/g molecule and a Si-O bond binding energy of 121 kcal/g molecule in silicone, so its thermal stability is high chemical bond molecules do not break or decompose under high temperature (or radiation exposure). Silicones are resistant to high and low temperatures and can be used over a wide range of temperatures. Chemical and physical mechanical properties change very little with temperature.
3、Splash-proof, multiple protection
In the foundry industry, the average temperature inside the electric heating furnace is extremely high, and high temperature splashes are easily formed (the same is true for the welding industry). After cooling and solidifying, slag is formed on the pipe or cable, which hardens and eventually fractures the outer adhesive layer of the pipe or cable. This then damages unprotected equipment and cables. You can achieve multiple safety protection with a multi-channel silicone coated fire jacket. With a maximum temperature resistance of 1300 degrees Celsius, it can effectively prevent high temperature cast iron, copper, aluminum and other molten spray from damaging surrounding cables and equipment.
4、Heat insulation, energy saving and radiation resistance
In high-temperature workshops, the internal temperature of many pipes, valves or equipment is very high, which can easily cause burns or heat loss if no protective materials are added.
Fireproof casing has better thermal stability than other polymer materials, as well as anti-radiation and heat insulation properties, which can prevent accidents and reduce energy consumption, and also prevent the heat of the medium in the pipeline from being directly transferred to the surrounding environment. It causes the temperature of the workshop to rise. Too high, which can save cooling costs.
5、Resistant to moisture, oil, weather and pollution, prolonging the life of equipment
Flame-retardant casing chemical stability, silicone does not react with oil, water, acid and alkali substances, within 260 ℃, can be used for a long time without aging, the natural environment life can reach decades, it can maximize the protection of these occasions in the pipeline, cable and equipment, greatly extending its service life.
6、Ozone resistance, voltage resistance, arc resistance, corona resistance
As the surface is coated with silica gel, its main chain is -Si-O- and there is no double bond, it is not easy to be decomposed by UV and ozone. The fireproof sleeve has good electrical insulation performance. Its dielectric loss, voltage resistance, arc resistance, corona resistance, volume resistance coefficient and surface resistance coefficient are among the best among insulating materials, and its electrical properties are little affected by temperature and frequency. Therefore, they are a stable electrical insulation materials, widely used in the electrical and electronic industry.
7、Flame retardant, reduce the incidence and spread rate of fire.
If flammable or toxic media are transported in the pipeline, it is easy to cause fire or casualties when leakage occurs. Electric wires are also often burnt out due to local high temperature. The fireproof cover is extremely high temperature resistant glass fiber sheet with special materials such as appropriate flame retardant added to the silicone surface to make it have excellent flame retardant properties. Even in case of fire, it can stop the spread of fire and still protect the internal pipeline intact for a long time, providing the possibility and sufficient time for the rescue of information, data and other important information.
8、Easy to install and use
There is no need to shut down equipment or remove hoses and cables when installing flame retardant sleeves. Another benefit is that it can be installed on site at the factory to ensure proper sealing and structural integrity.
