Smart–Shield manufacturers Extremely Flexible Pyro-Textiles Sleeves can withstand repeated exposures to molten steel, molten aluminum and molten glass up to 3000°F (1650°C). These specially designed compound sheds molten metal splash immediately, so very little heat transfer occurs.
These Sleeves are roughly textured and are made from Sleeves Woven from incombustible Knitted E-type Fiber glass yarns with diagonally chequered air gaps of 5 mm at distance every 3mm providing self-cooling in a flexible substrate and are covered in a thick layer of red silicone rubber which provides a high level of heat and fire insulation.
When exposed to flame, the silicone rubber transforms into a crust, creating a protective SiO2 refractory layer thus providing effective protection against burns from hot hoses and flexible steamlines, while reducing heat energy losses.
