SP INTERNATIONAL Techflex sleeving category withstands high temperature environments, providing thermal protection in wire harnesses and automotive applications, resistors, civilian and military aircraft and other environments. State-of-the-art, high-temp material comes in the following categories:

  • FireFlex® – Totally non-conductive, won’t melt, delaminate, or combust.  Fiberglass/silicone sleeving.
  • Insultherm® – Designed with integrated ribs that provide equipment with a built-in buffer against heat and abrasion, its fiberglass cord braided into the sleeving allows for expansion and more abrasion protection.
  • ThermaShield® – The aluminum skin and insulation layers are a hybrid system that combat both radiant and convective heat.
  • Weld Wrap® – Braided from silica yarns rather than fiberglass.  The heavy duty hook and loop closure ensures a tight seal, and allows Weld Wrap® to be installed easily over existing assemblies.  Provides a high level of abrasion and penetration protection to increase the useful life of any hoses exposed to rough or abrasive surfaces.
  • Volcano® – The basalt fibre provides an attractive & durable finish plus temperature protection up to 1,500 degrees F.
  • Dragon® – Made to withstand unbelievable temperatures.  Lightweight flame retardant sleeving, resistant to sparks.
  • Flexo® Silica – Enhanced thermal protection up to 1,800 degrees F.  Ideal for protection of delicate components and personnel from exposure to high temperature exhausts and pipes.  Cuts easily with scissors.
