  • Heavy Duty Silicone Coated Fibreglass Sleeve designed for demanding industrial applications.
  • Made with a 3mm thick layer of red silicone rubber over a knitted fibreglass core.
  • Tough, strong yet flexible. Excellent abrasion & chemical resistance.
  • Withstands up to 260°C, has good dielectric properties and is available by the metre.

Designed for protecting cables, wires, hoses and small pipes, our Fyrejacket Silicone Coated Fibreglass Sleeve is a versatile product. Manufactured from an internal layer of knitted, high strength fibreglass that is coated with a thick, durable silicone rubber finish; this sleeving can handle high heat & tough conditions.

Available in a selection of bore sizes, this protective sleeving is widely used in the automotive, heavy transport, mining, plant maintenance, electrical and power generation industries. It is available directly from this page by the metre.

More information on this quality insulation sleevings capabilities and attributes is included below.

Heavy Duty Protective Sleeving.

Our Fyrejacket Silicone Sleeving is made for demanding industrial applications. The fibreglass core has a knitted construction for added tensile and physical strength while the 3mm thick silicone elastomer that coats it is particularly strong, durable and abrasion resistant.

This sleeving is designed to not only insulate (either electrically, thermally or both) cables and hoses, but to also protect them mechanically. It has good flexibility and retains this property even after prolonged exposure to heat/cold. It also has a smooth outer surface finish which helps prevent snagging.

Excellent Chemical and Media Resistance.

The silicone outer layer used on our Fyrejacket Sleeving has excellent chemical resistance. A summary of its general resistance is included below (followed by a few of the media types that it isn’t so great with).

Chemical Resistance
Generally Resistant To: 
Hydraulic fluids, lubricating oils, fuels, concentrated sodium hydroxide,
moderate or oxidizing chemicals, water, ozone, weathering & oxidation.
Usually Not Resistant To:
Solvents, concentrated acids & dilute sodium hydroxide.

High Heat Tolerance.

One of the main applications for silicone coated fibreglass sleeving is to protect cables and hoses from temperature. This sleeving does an excellent job at this and is able to withstand continuous exposure to temperatures up to 260°C (minimum operating temperature is -54°C).

This protective sleeving will tolerate short-term spikes up to 300°C but prolonged exposure above 260°C is not suggested.

Common Applications for Silicone Coated Fibreglass Sleeve.

  • As heat insulation for cables and hoses in high heat areas.
  • Guarding control lines and hydraulic hoses against molten splash.
  • Protecting wires and cables in high temperature environments.
  • As a secondary electrical insulation layer and mechanical protection for high voltage cables.
  • Insulating hoses and small pipes to help reduce energy loss.
  • Abrasion protection for hoses and cables.

In many other applications spread throughout the mining, automotive, marine, rail, power generation, metal processing, electrical and glass manufacturing industries.
