Radiant Heat Reflective Aluminum Foil Coated Fiberglass Tape - Plain and with PSA adhesive
Heat & Flame Resistant & Radiant Heat Reflective for wire, cable, hose and tubing protection
1000°F / 537°C Peak Exposure; 450°F / 232°C Continuous Exposure
This high temperature tape is heat resistant and heat reflective.
The highly polished aluminum foil coating reflects radiant heat and is an excellent choice for the protection of industrial wires, cables, hoses (hydraulics), pipes, tubing and equipment that is in close proximity to intense radiant heat sources such as super-hot metal slabs, liquid and molten metals or glass, open flame/plasma, engine exhaust manifolds, and for reflecting solar glint.
The most common tape is slit from 21oz foil coated fiberglass fabric. There are several other fabric choices available, including: 35oz foil coated fiberglass, 19oz foil coated Kevlar, as well as foil coated silica and foil coated Rayon.
For applications involving regular repeated movement, such as a bellows or cable track system, we offer and recommend an "AMA", or Aluminum-Mylar-Aluminum coated fiberglass. The aluminum coated Mylar withstands repeated flexing better than foil coated fabrics.
Also available is an AMA-F-SR fabric, which is AMA on one side of a Fiberglass base cloth, the the other side being Silicone Rubber coated.
These heat reflective materials generally reflect 95 to 98% of the infrared heat striking its surface.
Heat reflecting tapes are available in sizes from 1/2" through 40" wide, and is available from the Foil coated Fiberglass from stock. Tapes from the other available materials are by quotation. Available with PSA adhesive.
