Braided Fiberglass Spark Plug Ignition Wire Protection Sleeve / Boot
High Temperature, Heat & Flame Resistant and Thermal Insulating
1200°F / 648°C Continuous Exposure: Higher Intermittent
This high temperature and heat resistant fiberglass sleeve is a braided fiberglass (fibreglass / glassfibre) sleeve, fabricated from high quality type E fiberglass that will not burn and will withstand continuous exposure to temperatures of 1200°F / 648°C.
Folded and stitched, it is designed to protect the ignition wire and spark plug from high heat from the engine manifold - preventing wire and plug failure in performance auto applications.
This high temperature sleeve / heat resistant sleeve resists most acids and alkalis and is unaffected by most bleaches and solvents. It is highly flexible and conformable. The base fiber is manufactured to the specifications of ASTM D-578, ASTM committee D13, and subcommittee D13.18. This product is 100% Asbestos free.
